Gettin' Crafty on Day 6

Christmas Crafts and DIY!


Grab the button and link-up for the fun!

I haven't been too, too crafty myself this holiday season.  When I share my decorations on Day 10, you'll see more of my DIY decorating ideas...as I feel most decorations have a little DIY spin on them since YOU choose where and how to use them! (One of my favorites being using ball ornaments in various glass containers to decorate.)  So I thought today I would share some of my favorite DIY internet finds from 3 of my favorite magazines...

framed Christmas paper as ornaments

I made my own rendition of this to hold our Christmas cards

how cute is the idea of a photo wreath?

spray paint? check!

{Real Simple}

guests can write a holiday message to apply to the wreath or it could even be filled with favorite bible verses, memories from the year, etc. Oh...or what about cut pieces from the fronts of Christmas cards to adorn this wreath?!

deck the stairs! (use nice paper and yarn. simple.)

I can't wait to see your craft and DIY ideas for the holidays!


"Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
tomorrow's the time to share your favorite songs and movies,

  1. I LOVE the Christmas cards on the ribbon! Hope you have a great day!

  2. Haha, what a coincidence. I wrote my post based on stuff I've seen too. I usually prefer copying ideas since I've seen what they already look like =) Thanks for more ideas to consider!

  3. i love those ideas! i really like the wreath with the little messages. :)

  4. i love the christmas card "tree" hanging! what a great and decorative way to display all those cards! ours usually just end up in a pile after a couple of weeks. i may have to try this out this year!


Thanks for stopping by! Your support and insight encourage and inspire me! I would love to hear your thoughts.
