The perfect look for your rustic Christmas decor: DIY faux birch candleholders using thrift store vases. Catch the tutorial to see how to bring this beautiful Christmas decor idea int your home this holiday!

Growing up in New England, I was surrounded by birch trees-- and to me the peeling white bark so beautifully symbolizes nature's perfect imperfections. Since taking birch bark off the tree can damage the tree, I used birch scrapbook paper to get the same look without being a tree killer.  And thus, these faux birch candleholders were born from thrift store glassware with just a roll in paper, piece of tape, and dash of gold! A more simple rustic Christmas craft you will not find. ;-) The … [Read more...]

These DIY woodland ornaments are easy to make and add a touch of whimsy to your Christmas tree! Check out this easy tutorial and prepare to fall in love with all those adorable little woodland scenes!

So that I could save for another West Elm splurge that's a little bigger. ;-)  Getting to play with teeny bottle brush trees and mini-deer in the name of Christmas crafting made me all kinds of happy! Keeping with my natural woodland Christmas theme (Glam Scandi, I call it) I … [Read more...]

Check out how to make this easy DIY Christmas art from a tea towel! LOVE simple Christmas decorating ideas like this Anthropologie hack!

I'm a sucker for anything Anthropologie, so when I saw this wintery tea towel at the end-of-year sale I snagged it for about 70% off the regular price. The colors and shimmer also became the inspiration point for my entire holiday decorating plan, but I digress. I thought about framing it, but realized a FREE solution was under my nose... er, workbench. I had a pile of wrapped canvases (the type you can get at Michaels for cheap with a coupon) and suddenly the simple idea emerged to put the two … [Read more...]

simple yet beautiful handcrafted Christmas ideas and decorations! Love the simple Scandinavian style!

Last year’s Christmas clutter had me feeling totally depleted.  After the holidays I’d just had ENOUGH. Enough stuff. Enough clutter. Enough stress and blowing the budget.

My budget (and free space in my home) doesn’t allow for a huge shopping spree, so I created a careful plan to focus on how I wanted my holiday décor to feel this year. I wanted … [Read more...]
