Metallic New Year’s Plate

At the beginning of each new year, Bethany from Pitter and Glink is always filled with hope for good things to come. When she saw a holiday plate from Bloomingdale’s that featured the word “hope,” she just had to knock if off. Bethany used a dollar store plate and some paint pens to recreate the festive plate in less than ten minutes!

Feather Ball Ornament

Mari of Crab+Fish almost bought these feathery ornaments from West Elm before she realized they couldn’t be that hard to replicate. With a few minutes of time and a Styrofoam ball, ric rac, and feathers, Mari did just that! She says, “ My version isn’t quite as fancy and flouncy and orderly as West Elm’s version…but I like my puffball version better!”

Paper Christmas Tree

“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!

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!

Silent Night Wood Sign

After devoting some serious thought to her front door’s Christmas getup, Jaime from That’s My Letter landed on a cute little wood sign from Pottery Barn Kids. The sign wasn’t for sale; however, that’s hardly a problem when you are a sign making master like Jaime {wink}. She totally one upped Pottery Barn Kids by combining her sign with evergreens and burlap for this lovely Christmas creation!

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}.

Branch Letter Ornament

It certainly hasn’t escaped the notice of Danie from [a few good things] that some of Anthropologie’s yummy eye candy is easily reproducible. In fact, she recreated one of their monogrammed ornaments using only two materials – sticks and yarn. While $8 may not seem too steep to actually purchase something from Anthropologie, I’ll take Danie’s free version any day! Especially since it looks like it could be right there in the catalog!

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!
