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!

When Gail from Purple Hues and Me saw a lovely little Christmas tree made from brooches, she knew it would be a perfect way to display jewelry pieces she had accumulated from her loved ones. Gail pieced together large and small pieces to cover a Styrofoam tree and finished it off with glittery sparkle. The sentimental meaning behind Gail’s tree makes it all the more beautiful!

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!

Jen from Librarian Tells All has been on a mission to recreate West Elm’s ornament collection, and her latest and greatest is a fluffy and fun pom pom. For the price of one ornament from West Elm, you can make five, ten, or even twenty-five of Jen’s wallet-friendly version. As Jen points out, this is a great way to burn through some yarn if you’ve got a healthy supply.
