Weekend Inspiration: My top 7 fave holiday crafts!

What better weekend for a Weekend Inspiration post than the last weekend before Christmas?!? December weekends are always so busy but yet aren't we so inspired for crafty projects, for gifts and decor and coziness?! I did this inspiration post early this holiday season, and I stand by my recommendations (I just made those cookies this week! IG'd here!) But here are seven of my fave DIYs and crafty project ideas for this year!!


Ornament garland. This has to be like the easiest Christmas decor DIY. And nowadays the plastic ball ornaments are everywhere (already 70% off at JoAnn!), you could do this safely!

My easy DIY bunting flags from last year. These babies are hanging on the mantel again this year!!

Sparkly holiday throw pillows. (I'd do a sewn version, but this is "no-sew.")

Been super into fair isle print and red and white this year! This photo inspires me to make some DIY sweater pillows!

And, having wrapped quite a few presents already this year, I can totally vouch for the simple glue gun felt present tie-ons I made and blogged here. I've made a second batch already with some more ribbon and may need to make more! I'm happy to give them away along with the gifts!

(We all know I love gold spray paint.) Spray paint old accessories like nutcrackers gold--or white, or any festive color to match your decor.

And, more garlands... how about these huge pompoms and bells?

OMG. Christmas crafts are so fun!!

Are you doing any craft projects or gifts this weekend? What should I try if I get a chance after baking, felt gluing, and playing with glitter?!

  1. Ooh great ideas, you are right christmas crafts are so much fun and glitter and gold spray paint make anything beautiful. I just shared a recipe for spice apple you could try ( http://tadpegs.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/homemade-hot-spiced-apple.html ).

    Have a lovely Christmas though. Zoe x
