If you follow this blog (or our Facebook page
feed) then you know that this week we’re celebrating Handmade Holidays
with Stephanie Lynn from Under the Table & Dreaming
. On Stephanie Lynn’s blog, 25 generous and inspiring bloggers are sharing their very best Christmas crafting & decorating ideas made with STYROFOAM Brand Foam. Every day, five new bloggers have dazzled me with their creative and beautiful projects.
There are still a few more designs to be unveiled today, and I’m feeling eager yet sad to see them. It’s been like a very fun party this week, where I’ve met a lot of interesting people, enjoyed a wonderful buffet, had a blast, and now I’m sad that the party’s ending. Of course, these 25 project tutorials aren’t going anywhere and you’ll be able to see them on Under the Table & Dreaming throughout the Christmas season.
Today, I’m sharing just a small collection of the projects from Handmade Holidays. It’s a round-up of wall art, topiaries, garlands, and all things Christmas. Because I cannot feature all 25 designs here, I hope you will click through to see them all on Under the Table and Dreaming.
I also want to say “thank you, thank you” to Stephanie Lynn and her team of Handmade Holiday bloggers. I have been so impressed and inspired!
