December 15, 2017

clear diy ornament snow globe bottle brush tree faux snow

Every Christmas I somehow manage to come up with new versions of the classic Christmas snow globe. I've been known to fill gumball machines, salt and pepper shakers, cloches, and even glass lamps! And this year was no exception. I decided to fill some clear plastic ornaments in the old snow globe fashion. (Can't believe I've never done it before!) And boy, was I pleased with the result! Easy and inexpensive, so really anyone can do it. I promise. I'll show you how to do it using two different types of ornaments. So let's get started!

DIY yarn pom pom wreath Christmas Anthro-inspired

 Years ago I fell in love with Anthropologie's pom pom wreath the moment I set eyes on it. Who wouldn't? But due to its astronomical price I knew that baby was never coming home with me. However, luckily for me, I also knew that I could actually DIY one for a lot less money!

November 27, 2017

hobnail mercury glass sparkle ornament holiday decor rustic

As each year passes I am drawn more and more to simplicity in my Christmas decorating. This year is no exception. I have, however, remained firm in my commitment to doing it all as inexpensively as possible. And that's where this particular Christmas decor idea comes in. I'm a huge fan of mercury glass, and I've even been known to DIY my own. But when I saw these gorgeous hobnail mercury glass jars at my local Dollar Store recently, I knew that they were more than worth the price! I also knew that I could use them in a plethora of ways for Christmas and beyond. So today I'm sharing four different ways you can dress them up for the holidays.

DIY Embroidery Hoop Christmas Wreath in 5 Easy Steps

November 20, 2017


DIY Embroidery Hoop Christmas Wreath tutorial

Hello, guys! I'm pretty excited to be sharing this embroidery hoop Christmas wreath tutorial with you today for two reasons: 1. I've finally finished a Christmas project to blog about and 2. It's a knock-off of a wreath I originally saw online from a famous retailer. They just announced a new celebrity line of home goods and holiday wares, including a wreath similar to this one. I dare not mention the actual names involved for fear that the knock-off police will come and shut me down. Seriously. So you'll just have to guess which store and celebrity-endorsed line I'm talking about. (Rhymes with parget. Yes, that's a word.)

Yup, I'm still chugging along with my fall decor projects. Christmas aisles in the craft stores be damned! Just as I only recently created my farmhouse fall pumpkin pillow, I am just getting around to some farmhouse fall decorating with a few natural elements I've never used before -- namely, wheat and pomegranates.
