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

DIY-burlap-Christmas-tree-Ask-Anna-4-600x880

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!

“Oh Christmas tree. Oh Christmas tree. How lovely are your branches pages.” Pages? That’s right! This Christmas tree from Dana at Wonder Forest is made from repurposed music book pages. Dana cut paper squares a plenty and then stacked them up to make this pretty paper tree. If you can operate scissors or a paper cutter, then you’re fully equipped to make your own!

Today’s all about Christmas trees here at KOD! I’ve got a couple of projects to showcase that show there are more options out there than just the traditional evergreen boughs. Gail from Purple Hues and Me created this trio of red trees by cutting felt leaves and adhering them to cone forms. What a simple way to make a statement on a tabletop or mantel!

Fork and Spoon Paper Towel Holder

Diane from In My Own Style was eyeing a fork and spoon design paper towel holder from Pottery Barn as a Christmas gift for her daughter. However, over $50 for a paper towel holder was more than Diane was willing to dish out. Especially when she could rummage through the kitchen for a couple of old wooden utensils and make her own awesome rendition!
