Krista of The Happy Housie came up with an adorable paint stick project this holiday season: rustic stars! It's definitely something that could be incorporated year-round into her decor, and the hardware store was nice enough to give her the paint sticks for free!
"A little while back, my neighbor was throwing out this old window screen," tells Shanna at Restoration Redoux, "and I told my husband that I knew I would someday find a use for it. He of course told me I never would. I love it when I’m right."
Krista, The Happy Housie, is on round three with this burlap wreath form. She'd already used it for her summer and fall wreaths before she transformed it once again into winter door decor especially for the Christmas season.
If you've ever run out of wrapping paper at the last minute, or you want to customize your wrapping paper to make your gifts extra special, then you'll love this idea from Christine, The DIY Dreamer. Along with a bit of technology, all it took for her to make some pretty paper were a few cedar clippings from her yard.
Need a gift idea that's inexpensive and fun to make? Steph shares an idea over at Crafting in the Rain that fits the bill. She started with a few small hexagon tile mosaics that she found at a thrift shop. If you don't have any of these leftover from another project, you can buy these inexpensively at the local home improvement store.
This year, when it came to festive door decor, Rachel says that, "I wanted simple. I wanted a little rustic. But most of all, I wanted free!" She came up with something lovely using the branches her sister trimmed off of her live Christmas tree, and shared the project at Architecture of a Mom.
"I'm a texture girl," claims Amy at Stow & Tell U, "and I couldn't help but try and diy-up some faux snow for the holidays. I saved up a bunch of soup cans from Thanksgiving and put together a faux snow centerpiece."
After turning a faux fur throw into pillows and arm chair covers for her living room, Tammy was left with a few random scraps of fur. They didn't go to waste! She incorporated them into her winter decor and told all about it at her blog, One More Time Events.
Who has already started wrapping their Christmas presents? Well, if you need a little inspiration and want to have a greener, cleaner Christmas, take a cue from Laura of Laura Kelly's Inklings, and turn brown paper grocery bags into gift wrap, this year.
