Have you made a new wreath for the holidays yet? If not, here’s another from Rachael at House of Noise… I Mean Boys to kick you into full-on wreath-making mode {wink}!

Chevron Kitchen Mat

When you think of a kitchen mat, I am sure fun is not a word that comes to your mind. However, Laura from Markham Street Designs shows that a kitchen mat can be full of life and personality! Laura took her old foam kitchen mat and painted it to resemble a zigzag mat she spotted in a magazine. Even dishes would be a little more fun standing on this mat {wink}!

Metallic Leaf Christmas Tree

While browsing the Pottery Barn catalog recently, Joy from Thrifty Parsonage Living came across their beautiful metallic bay leaf trees. Joy was drawn to the silver tree since she’s decorating with silver, blue, and a winter wonderland theme this year.  She was disappointed to find the trees were no longer available, but, in true DIY spirit, decided to make it herself. The shimmery tree cost Joy a whopping $2.50, which has to make her happy they were sold out in the first place!

Pom Pom Wreath

I am totally digging all the alternatives to the traditional Christmas wreath that have been floating around. This fluffy yarn wreath made by Aimee from It’s Overflowing takes the cake! I love all the texture, and literally all you need is some yarn and a wreath form. I honestly think Aimee’s wreath is waaay better than its $128 Anthropologie counterpart.

Magnolia Leaf Wreath

Melissa from The Happier Homemaker was inspired to create a live magnolia leaf wreath for the holidays. She pulled it off on the cheap by using a pool noodle for the wreath form and magnolia leaves from the woods outside her home. A burlap bow completes the look for this pretty alternative to a traditional pine wreath.

Antler chandeliers, antler wreaths, antler candelabras…. It’s not just hunters that are taking pleasure in displaying antlers in their homes these days. As Leshia from Southern Chic Love points out, they are everywhere in the décor world! Leshia jumped right in on the antler craze by turning one of her family’s hunting prizes into this Pottery Barn-inspired wall plaque. All it cost her was the can of stain!

Felt Leaf Tree Skirt

Remember that pretty felt wreath pillow from yesterday? Well, Jody from Homey Home Design loved it so much she decided to whip up a matching tree skirt this year. Jody sewed a simple tree skirt and then added her felt leaves and pom poms with fabric glue. If just the thought of making your own tree skirt wears you out, Jody encourages that it was much simpler and took less time than expected. Maybe she’ll add stockings to the collection next year!
