Christmas Craft Round Up: Handmade Holidays Showcases Christmas Decorating Ideas

If you follow this blog (or our Facebook page or Twitter 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.
Handmade Holidays with Stephanie Lynn from Under the Table & Dreaming

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!
