Fresh Magnolia and Fir Wreath


Most designers will tell you one sure fire way to freshen up a space on the fly is with fresh flowers or greenery. Vidya from What’s Ur Home Story added fresh greenery to her holiday décor by creating a magnolia wreath out of leaves she collected outside. The best part of decorating with natural elements like leaves and pine is that they are not only beautiful but FREE!

Glitter Letter Ornaments for Only $1


If you are looking for a cheap and easy last-minute Christmas gift, this is it! Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic bedazzled some chipboard letters and peace signs by simply coating them with glitter spray paint. I love that this gives a beautiful finish and is a less-mess option compared to regular glitter. Plus, think of all the friends and family you could make gifts for from one $3 alphabet set!

Antiqued Christmas Mirror Makeover


Suzanne of Bitz of Me gave a framed mirror that was too brown for her liking a makeover this holiday season. She first lightened up the frame with some white chalk paint and dark wax and then added a Christmas saying to the glass. The fact that the text is removable makes it perfect for seasonal decorating and special occasions, but I love the idea of adding a beloved saying or Bible verse to a mirror or old window to enjoy the whole year through.

Pickle Jars to Pottery Barn Inspired Candles


Adina from Simply Country Life says you should think twice before throwing away your old jars and repurpose them instead. Adina was inspired to embellish gallon-size pickle jars with twine and pinecones for a festive Christmas candle holder. This is such a simple fix for a plain glass jar and can easily be modified for different holidays and occasions.

Embroidered Christmas Pillow from Old Sweaters


Would you believe Cindy at Custom Comforts created this lovely embroidered Christmas pillow using items she scrounged up around the house? Cindy sewed up a pillow cover from one of my favorite materials, drop cloth, and created the holly leaves and pine cones from secondhand Goodwill sweaters. The icing on the cake is all the beautiful embroidery that Cindy did by hand! Are you as impressed as I am?!?

North Pole Christmas Sign


Autie from iCandy Handmade got her porch ready for Christmas this year with the addition of a North Pole sign she DIYed. The really fun part for a hoarding, repurposing, outside-the-box thinking girl like myself is that Autie created her sign from a freezer door from her daughter’s play kitchen. I love that rock-what-you-got mentality! And isn’t her sign adorable?

Red and White Rope Christmas Trees


Can you believe Christmas is only a week away?!? Do you still have shopping to finish, gifts to wrap, and cookies to bake? Let’s keep things simple today then, shall we? Sam from The Lovebugs Blog created these fun and whimsical Christmas trees with just some rope and hot glue. She says, “This might be the world’s easiest craft project.  It took about 15 minutes to pull these trees together and only required a few materials.  It was low cost and has a big impact.”

Wooden Wall Map for a Pirate-Loving Lad


Kristen from Down Home Inspiration created this wooden wall map for her pirate-loving son’s bedroom. Kristen had been on the lookout for a relatively easy and inexpensive décor, and this DIY wall art fit the bill to perfection. Kristen already had the plywood on hand and simply used a projector to outline the land. For a personal touch, Kristen included a bay with pirate history that she and her husband had just visited for their anniversary.
