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!
