Solid Wood Pyramid Block Set

Jaime from That’s My Letter teamed up with Ana White to build a 100-piece solid wood block set inspired by Land of Nod. Now I know blocks aren’t technically décor, but… with the multitude of colors and pyramid design, I dare say these blocks would make an artistic statement in any play space or bedroom! Jaime even colored the blocks with food coloring, so they are safe for little ones to chew on build with. That Jaime always thinks of everything!

Rollaway Toy Storage Crate

Now that the presents have all been unwrapped are you wondering where you are going to store them all??? Desiree from Camelot Art Creations made this rolling storage bin to corral all the toys that threaten to take over her living area each day. The beauty of this piece is that it allows her children to be accountable for cleaning up themselves since it requires simply throwing the toys into the crate. Desiree built her crate for free using pallet wood, but if building’s not your thing, you could also doctor up an unfinished crate from the craft store.

If you are hoping to find a shiny new television under the Christmas tree tomorrow morning, you may find this tutorial for building your own TV frame handy. Brooke from All Things Thrifty has been working on a master bedroom revamp and sure didn’t want a big ol’ ugly television on the wall spoiling the pretty.

Appliqued Deer Silhouette Pillow

Jessica from Sew Homegrown created this deer head silhouette pillow to add a little festivity to her couch. Jessica’s hubs drew a pattern (that has kindly been made available to Jessica’s readers), which Jessica traced and cut from a colorful, textured fabric. She then used a dense zigzag stitch to sew the deer to the front square of the pillow. Like Jessica, I love that this pillow is seasonal without being too Christmas-y, so you don’t have to pack it up with the rest of your Christmas decorations.

Luxurious No-Sew Faux Fur Pillow

Jennifer from Decorated Chaos was craving the cozy and luxurious feel of fur for these cold winter days, but a girl has to stick to her budget! However, when Jennifer came across a yard of fuzzy faux fur in the clearance bin for only $3, it was a deal she couldn’t pass up. Jennifer turned that fur into a no-sew accent pillow that satisfies her need for all things warm and snuggly. I feel warmer just looking at it!

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!
