One of the things I love about blogging is that it widens my circle of friends so much…and I get to virtually visit many more homes during the Christmas season. This year, I’ve seen lots of homes decorated in lovely winter whites and traditional reds and greens. What I can’t get enough of, though, are the pictures I’m seeing of halls that are decked in less less traditional color schemes. They’ve inspired me to break the mold with my own decor, this year. Today I’m sharing 5 Ways to Have a Colorful Christmas.
It’s the first day of December…time to let the countdown to Christmas officially begin! You know how I love a good countdown. I’ve crafted plenty of fun ways to count the days until holidays and events besides Christmas. Really, those are all based off the concept of the original countdown known as Advent. Christian tradition calls the four weeks leading up to Christmas Advent. Traditions vary quite a bit from culture to culture—in some, every day is marked as one less before Christmas, others measure the time a week at a time. Any way you do it, though, the concept is still the same: you are using something to help you count or mark the days leading up to Christmas. Today I’m sharing 5 ways to count and celebrate each of the 25 days before Christmas.
Taryn from Design, Dining + Diapers is here to share with you a simple Christmas décor gift. She took dollar store vases and made an adorable Christmas centerpiece or vignette. You can change the look simply by changing out the filler. This may be inexpensive to make but sure gives high end results.
I am slightly obsessed with painting fabric. I just feel so free that I am unlimited by color or pattern when I have paint laying around. I also love screen printing and have made several screen printed pillows prior. I love snowflakes. I think they are so intricate, delicate and feminine. So why not make up a few and give them as gifts matching the Christmas décor of the recipient?
Kristyn from Lil’ Luna is here to share with you a cute way to think beyond the cookie in a jar gift. Instead fill a jar with some Christmas M&M’s and an adorable printable tag for a great gift for neighbors, coworkers and those people you want to give a simple Christmas gift to.
