As Christmas draws nearer and nearer, I thought I would share my 75 favorite holiday decor ideas. This post hi-lights a variety of ways for you to add a little “scabby chic” to your Christmas. Enjoy.

I have taken the following pictures both from the web and Pinterest. I claim no rights to them and have included as may links as I was able to find under each photo.
