NOEL Wall Art

Pottery Barn’s Noel Sign has become rather famous in the world of Christmas décor. I have seen it recreated many times, but this DIY from Christa at Brown Sugar Toast is by far the thriftiest! Christa got almost the exact look of those well-known letters by cutting them herself from a large piece of cardboard. How’s that for resourcefulness?

Animal Print Ornament

Morena over at Morena’s Corner went a little wild with her Christmas décor this year by creating a couple of fun animal print ornaments for her tree. Morena stenciled the safari design onto a glass ornament using glass paints to create this unique ornament. Morena says, “No elves, snow, or bright colors on this ornament.  Just elegantly painted glass in a pattern that’s very trendy right now.”

Octopus Ornament

If you like ornaments that are a bit quirky and deviate from the norm, then this octopus ornament by Emily at Lemon Yellow Journal is right up your alley. Here’s what she has to say: “I saw this little guy on the Terrain website, and thought it was so cute and totally doable!  I used a small sized Christmas bauble, some newsprint, and some craft glue and went to town! I finished it off with some paint for the eyes, and now he’s happily perched on my tree.”

Poinsettia Pillow

Heather from Thrifty Stories had been oogling Pottery Barn’s poinsettia pillow for over a year now and finally made her own with a zipper closure for easy storage.  This pillow is both elegant and fun with the jingle bell center. My kids would have a blast shaking this pretty pillow whenever they could get their little hands on it!

Hanging Snowflakes

Christa from Brown Sugar Toast found a way to enjoy a little winter snowfall despite the mild temperatures outside. She brought the snow inside by hanging these cute little snowflakes in her daughter’s bedroom. Christa was fortunate to find a pack of six snowflakes for only a dollar, and some white thread turned them into wintery mobiles.

Pom Pom Wreath

In an attempt to boost her holiday spirit, Linda from It All Started with Paint created a little Christmas eye candy using a dollar store wreath and handmade wool pom poms. I simply love the look and texture of those big pom poms and the fact that this wreath is not reserved for Christmas alone. The thick wool is a great look for winter too!

Burlap Christmas Tree

Yesterday I shared a couple of ideas for creating your own tabletop Christmas trees. Considering the popularity of burlap, I can’t leave these little trees from Ask Anna out of the mix! Anna thread strips of burlap with thin wire and glued them to a center dowel. Fluff them to the desired shape, and you’ve got a fun, natural fiber tree.

Burlap and Plaid Stockings

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Burlap and Plaid Stockings1_thumb[5]

For Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict nothing says Christmas like red and green plaid. Debbie paired this holiday classic with some burlap for a “cozy and rustic” décor theme this year. Some stockings from Ballard provided the perfect inspiration for Debbie’s DIY version, which she created for FREE using scraps she had on hand. Debbie’s whole burlap and plaid mantel looks amazing, so you’ll definitely want to check it out!
