Felt Christmas Trees

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!

Mini Chair Wreaths

Emily from Life on the V Side created a set of miniature wreaths to bring a little Christmas spirit to her chairs. All she needed was grapevine wreaths, floral wire, and some eucalyptus, which Emily preferred over the look of Ballard’s boxwood. That’s the beauty of DIY… you get just what you want without the expense, and quite honestly, I think Emily’s looks much more natural than Ballard’s rather plastic-y boxwood.

Mason Jar Snowglobes

Lindsay of Makely created her own little winter wonderland with repurposed mason jars, bottle brush trees, and fake snow. And when I say winter wonderland, I am not kidding! Lindsay made 21 of the adorable snow globes to display together on her antique sideboard. I love the special touch of the red and white twine and tags for a little “Lindsay spin” {wink}.

Felt Mistletoe

When West Elm sold out of felt mistletoe before November even ended, Aimee from It’s Overflowing gathered a few basic crafting supplies to recreate the holiday plant. Floral wire gave life to yarn and felt and made it super easy for Aimee to shape her mistletoe. These are adorable to hang on gifts or in hallways for extra smooches!

Happy December to you! I am kicking it into full-on Christmas decorating mode this weekend. If you still are searching for inspiration, here’s a quickie project from Christa at Brown Sugar Toast you could probably whip up after a walk outside. Christa glued some pinecones to a red satin ribbon, and voila – beautiful and natural Christmas décor!

Stacked Glass Hurricanes

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!

Christmas Tree Pillow

Have I mentioned that I really like DIY pillows? Oh wait… only like a million times! So it’s no surprise that I was ohhing and ahhing over this adorable Christmas tree pillow made by Jamie from Three Scoops of Love. Not only it is pretty to look at, but Jamie added her own twist with removable “ornaments” so her kids can “trim the tree.” That special touch makes me love it all the more!

Glitter Photo Ornaments

I love this sweet idea from Jamie at C.R.A.F.T. to create a Christmas tree with a family theme. Of course, a family-themed tree necessitates family photos, and Jamie and her mom whipped up a passel of glittery photo ornaments for only nine cents a piece. How’s that for budget friendly?!?
