Seasonal Decorating

Holiday Decorating with Lace

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Hello hello, how are you?  Busy busy with the holiday season right?  It’s flying by!  I was going through some pictures from last year and realized I never shared a few pictures featured in Emily Henderson’s Holiday Guide in 2011.  Emily asked me to come up with something creative for the guide and I was loving the idea of decorating with lace.  I had no idea lace would be so big  in 2012 when I saw all the fall fashion on display in NYC earlier this year!

Lace is appearing everywhere in fashion again and in so many bold colors.  Here’s a peek at the four creative ways to use lace that I shared in the guide last year when decorating during the holidays.

Long strips of larger lace make a great stencil! I secured long pieces to plain wrapping paper with painter’s tape, then dusted it with two light coats of green spray paint to make unique wrapping paper.

Clay Filigree Ornaments + Link Party

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

Hi everyone and welcome to the par-tay!  I loved working with clay earlier this year when I made this clay petal vase so my daughter and I got together to craft some miniature ornaments out of the same product.  We liked the idea of little clay ornaments hanging on branches so we made several ornaments and they turned out pretty cute!   The first clay ornaments we made were these little filigree versions.
