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!

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!

Felt Wreath Pillow

Here is a beautiful, yet super simple, DIY holiday pillow from Jody at Homey Home Design that features a felt wreath with pom pom berries on a drop cloth pillow cover. I love how Jody shows that you don’t have to be a master seamstress to make a pretty pillow. A little fabric glue does the job quite nicely with this wreath!

Tami from Curb Alert answered a Freecycle ad for a dresser sight unseen and drove twenty to pick up her new acquisition.

Trust me when I say that you’ve got to check out the before pics to appreciate Tami’s skills!

The Christmas season is officially on, and I know we are all looking for ways to bring holiday cheer to our homes. Kayla from Whatever is Lovely created a couple of pretty hurricanes a la Pottery Barn by simply stacking glass vases she already had on top of each other. It doesn’t get much easier than that, and these hurricanes are lovely for any time of the year. Simply change out the candle and filler, and you’re set!
