I have definitely gotten into the Christmas DIY mode in a really big way. In the last week I made wrapping paper, Pom Pom Christmas trees, a dress form tree skirt, and an Advent Calendar. I am excited to share with you how I made this Burlap Christmas Tree Garland. I love it hanging on the mantle. Of course it would also look great above a door or window.
Every once in a while it’s nice to find an easy holiday DIY. Don’t get me wrong, I am the queen of long and drawn out DIY’s. I am sure you know that! But when I was out shopping and saw some adorable pom pom trees for $29.00 each I decided it was DIY time. So I went to the craft store and found everything I needed for pom pom Christmas trees! And of course, everything was on sale. So my cost for each tree was less than $10. That is 60% less that the ones at the store.
Back in July when all of you were posting beach photos, I was posting Christmas Craft DIY photos here on my blog. Some of you thought I was crazy. In fact, a lot of you couldn’t believe I was posting Christmas ideas when it was ninety degrees outside! But now that it is almost December, can I tell you how happy I am that I have so many of these completed?
This year I decided I wanted to make personalized Christmas ornaments. I thought it would be fun to make a list of words that were special to everyone in our family. Words from the year 2017 … such as people’s names, places we have visited and anything else I could think of that has a special meaning to our family. I started with a list of 35 words but by the time I finished making the ornaments the list had grown to over 50. It’s a good thing the ornaments were easy to make!
As many of you know, I have a serious shortage of Christmas decorations. I own one box of decorations and I need to step up my game!
Pinterest is such a great place for DIY ideas. Especially when it comes to Christmas projects. I recently saw this paper Magnolia wreath that was made by Seeking Lavender Lane. I loved the look of it so I decided to make my own using a scrapbook paper instead. It’s an easy DIY and I think you should try it!
