Paper Medallion Holiday Banner

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

With the busy holiday season in full swing, so many prefer a quick and easy craft that doesn’t take too much time or cost a lot of money. A few weeks ago, we created this sweet and simple paper medallion banner to spread Christmas cheer on the kitchen mantel.

The paper medallions were created with gift wrap, paper snowflakes, and chipboard letters – this is a fun project for kids and one that can be reused year after year.

Holiday Greenery Giveaway

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

One of the most wonderful things about decorating in December is the scent from fresh evergreens on display in the home. When I come through the door, I pause and breathe in – it’s not Christmas without that smell! Fresh holiday evergreens are a wonderful gift for yourself or to send to someone on your list.

I’ve ordered evergreens for photo shoots from Lynch Creek Farm several times over the years and I love when the box arrives on my door a few days later filled with fresh greenery from the state of Washington. I ordered holly, a wreath, and garland in October to stage a few vignettes for the fabric and gift wrap lookbook and when I was done, I layered it in the living room – it lasted for weeks!

DIY Wrapping Paper Bunting

Monday, November 18th, 2013

I love this project because not only is it fun for the “holly day” season (ha!) but the same supplies and process can be used to make bunting for any festive occasion, birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, kids rooms, and no sewing!

This festive slogan was made with cardboard from cereal boxes, wrapping paper, and glitter cardstock, and it’s easy enough for kids to help too. Details on how to make your own version below!
