Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage shared this nifty tutorial for some lovely cool-weather decor at Infarrantly Creative. It’s a rustic tealight holder that was made from a fallen branch.
Baby, it’s cold outside….and Taryn from Design, Dining + Diapers has a perfectly crafted rescue project to help warm things up indoors. “Last year, I stumbled upon a big branch that had fallen down in the woods behind our neighborhood,” she tells us, “and I somehow convinced my husband to carry the 8′ branch all the way home for me. He’s the best!”
Here’s a simple decoration that will work for both Christmas and the winter months after. It was created by Nirupama at Avinash and Nandini, who started with a foraged tree branch.
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.
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.
Do you have any canning jars sitting around at your house? If so, you might want to try this fun project by Linda at It All Started with Paint. She made a snow globe from a canning jar!
Jess of East Coast Creative lost a few trees to Hurricane Sandy. With a big pile of wood in her backyard, Jess has been racking her brains trying to think of a way to use it up.
The before picture for this project has a funny story to go along with it. Katie–who blogs at Creatively Living–spotted this wood sticking out of a garbage pile while she was on a family jog. She convinced her husband to help her load it onto the back of their stroller so she could haul it home. What a sight!
