Christmas Tree Advent

This advent calendar created by Rach at Family Ever After totally knocks my socks off! I can only imagine the time that went into all the detail of cutting and stitching each adorable little felt pocket, but isn’t the end result amazing?!? I can definitely see this becoming a treasured Christmas family heirloom!

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!

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!

Felt Wreath Pillow

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!

Poinsettia Tree Skirt

Gail from Purple Hues and Me was truly inspired by a lovely white poinsettia stocking made by Yvonne of StoneGable. When she later stumbled upon an expensive poinsettia tree skirt in Neiman Marcus’ Christmas collection, she knew Yvonne’s tutorial was the ticket to creating her own. I can only imagine it was crazy tedious to cut out all those petals, but the outcome sure is beautiful!

Dot Christmas Tree Skirt

Jen from Beauty in Bloom replicated the look of a dot and ric-rac tree skirt to create a colorful Christmas tree last year. She used her old tree skirt as a template to sew the new skirt and then glued on her ric-rac and dots to complete the look. I love this fun, unique design and the fact that Jen saved $50 by making it herself. With all the expenses that come with the holidays, that’s much-needed money in the bank!

Scalloped Felt Wreath

I simply adored the simplicity of a scalloped felt wreath from Land of Nod and knew it could be created for a fraction of the price since felt is such an inexpensive fabric. At Infarrantly Creative I walk you through the simple steps I took to die cut the felt and attach it to my foam wreath. The neutral colors make this a great wreath for any décor and season, but the pinecone-esque look makes it perfect for fall!

Halloween Countdown Calendar

Courtenay from The Creek Line House has had Halloween fever for the past several weeks and couldn’t wait any longer to get her craft on for the occasion. She says, “When I saw this Halloween countdown calendar in the latest PBK catalogue, I just had to see if I could make one as easily as I thought I could. With just some felt from Michael’s and a few packs of
letter stickers, I created something almost identical… for about $11 instead of $59.”
