This is exciting! I am over at the swoonilicious Swoon Worthy blog today, showing a peek into my home for the first time ever and talking about my favourite room, creatively achieved on an itsy bitsy budget.
If you’ve ever wondered how I go about designing my own humble little home… well, there are no designer names to be found, nor any sort of design process or rules that are followed, but there is plenty of heart.
I know you’re just dying of curiosity so I shan’t keep you any longer, hop on over to Swoon Worthy now!
I hope your December is shaping up well with the festivities, my lovelies! I love a little homemade holiday cheer and have been soaking up all the creative decorating ideas around the blogs and magazines. These are some of my favourites:
Globe men instead of a tree: brilliantly unique and very cute!
via The Holiday Guide by Emily Henderson
Wine corks & jingle bells wreath; star cookie cutters wreath – both via Good Housekeeping
Cinnamon candles via Hobbycraft
Patchwork baubles via The Guardian
Charming rustic decorations, image via Where Did You Find That
I also came across a fantastically cute (non-Christmassy) idea by Nina Holst on her blog Stylizimo that instantly grabbed me – washi tape antlers. At this point I would say that I think the antler trend is overdone, I mean it is everywhere, which is probably why I haven’t bought into it, but… washi tape antlers are such a fun idea! Zero commitment, negligible cost and so very cute! So I adopted Nina’s idea with a little Christmas cheer –
I was planning on making some mini ornaments but haven’t found the time yet so making do with little glass baubles and a gold robin for now. I love that I can have it up all year round, with or without seasonal ornaments (I painted the tacks the same colour as the tape background so they’re hardly noticeable). I originally thought about taping straight on my wall like Nina but decided on a piece of MDF instead (primed and painted the same colour as the walls) as this way I can put it anywhere I want.
Have you done any crafting or creative decorating for Christmas? I would love to know your ideas!
P.S. How amazing is washi tape?? Have you used it for anything? It is addictive!! I foresee my collection growing very rapidly!
