It’s only Tuesday and I already miss the beautiful Christmas crafts and holiday decorating ideas from the Handmade Holidays series last week. The talented bloggers who showcased their Christmas crafts and decorations on Under the Table & Dreaming designed beautiful handmade Christmas topiaries, wreaths, garlands, and so much more. Last Friday, we showcased some of their designs, and today, because I want to see them all one more time, I’m going to share the remaining tutorials featured in Handmade Holidays (including five fabulous Christmas topiaries!). Enjoy!
Who knew simple materials (paper!) and dollar store items could be so pretty? Laura of Corner House shows how to make a Lighted Paper Snowflake Wreath & Mason Jar Snow Globes.
Create a festive tablescape with the holiday entertaining ideas from Lisa of Moore Minutes. Lisa's Fresh Holiday Vegetable & Fruit Wreaths are naturally beautiful.
This Snowman Party Centerpiece is not just for Christmas -- you can display him all winter long. Amanda from Shindig Party to Go shares her easy tute.
Jewel tone beads dress up the Shabby Chic Ruffled Tree Topiary created by Jaime Lyn of Crafty Happy Scrappy. Check out her glamorous tree topper, too.
Lor from Show Tell Share supersizes her holiday decorating with an extra-large Peppermint Candy Topiary made with a 6" ball of STYROFOAM Brand Foam.
This Ornament & Garland Topiary designed by Cyndy from The Creative Exchange is so elegant, and easy to adapt to your own Christmas decorating scheme.
Sarah, of Alderberry Hill, makes these beautiful Birch Bark Topiary Trees from birch bark she collects locally. White birch trees naturally shed their bark, so there is no need to pick the bark off the trees.
"How much longer??" is easily answered with this colorful countdown calendar from Keri and her blog Pressed Down Shaken. The Beribboned Topiary Trees make it even more fun & festive.
Your tree and home with sparkle with these Pottery-Barn inspired Snowflake Ornaments. Make your own with the tutorial from Jaime from That's My Letter.
Erin, who blogs at How to Nest for Less, adds a little holiday romance to her home with Oversized Mistletoe Kissing Balls. The best part -- she made them with holiday garlands from the dollar store.
I love how Tonia from The Gunny Sack packaged her Christmas Eggs in repurposed egg cartons. Tonia has so many ideas for decorating these pretty and festive eggs.
I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving tradition? Do you savor a walk in the woods following the big meal? Does your family gather ‘round to watch football? Or, maybe Thanksgiving wouldn’t be the same without your aunt’s special stuffing? Tell us your Thanksgiving tradition and we’ll show our thanks by selecting someone to receive one of our craft aprons.
We’ll see you Friday with more Christmas inspiration and another giveaway!
