Do you love the old-fashioned charm of creating your own handmade Christmas decorations? If so, I invite you to join me this week for 5 days of Handmade Christmas Decorations. Most of these projects are quick, easy and inexpensive (or even free), so they are great crafts for both you and your kids to make!
Day 1: Want an elegant, yet inexpensive wreath to add to your Christmas decor? Then check out this lovely Hymnal Wreath Tutorial. (It would also make a great gift for a musician or piano teacher!)
Day 2: Would you like to create a beautiful and elegant banner to grace your mantle, piano, or windows this Christmas season? I have a simple and easy tutorial for this Rejoice Christmas Banner.
Day 3: This project is a fun way to add whimsy into your Christmas decor and it’s amazingly simple. Pop over and check out this Twine Snowman Luminary that my daughter, Olivia, created.
Day 4: Are you in love with Anthropologie’s tufted wool wreath, but not so in love with its price? Then check out my tutorial for an Anthropologie-Inspired Tufted Wreath. It’s super-easy and so much fun to make!
Day 5 – Want some beautiful mini Christmas trees to adorn your mantle or grace a table in your home? Check out this variety of beautiful shabby chic Christmas Trees.
Don’t forget to sign you & your kids (tweens & teens too) up for my mixed media art workshop, Winter Wonderland, where we will create beautiful winter-themed works of art, as well as simple Christmas decorations and gifts to give. Click on the image for more info.
