Want a really nice Christmas? D.I.Y.

The CUTEST Christmas decor ever.


Nothing warms my heart more than a home draped in piney boughs with splashes of red mixed in: velvet, bows, berries. Stockings hanging from the mantlepiece. A douglas fir covered in tinsel, rainbow-colored blinkies, popcorn garland, and ornaments the kids made out of popsicle sticks. I'm definitely not one of these "modern" holiday decorators. A "tree" made of white aluminum sparingly covered with holographic balls? What is that, anyway? Gimme tradition. Gimme the smell of egg nog laced with nutmeg. Gimme thick hand-knit socks and mittens. This, to me, is Christmas. And in my opinion, Christmas is the time of year when handmade goodies should definitely abound. There's so many good ideas circulating on Pinterest right now. Here's a few of my favorites.

  1. Great ideas. I love Pinterest.
    I have to say though that the "kid-crafted" pillow actually looks complicated enough for me!


No spam or profanity please. You're classier than that.
