25 Christmas Craft Party Highlights

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Oh hello. I was just browsing the links at the Holiday Craft Party from last week, and all I can say is Wow.  I mean seriously. There are some very creative, talented, and crafty people out there, who all happened to link up their creations last week.  And would you be shocked to hear there are 785 of them. Yeah. How crazy cool is that?  So I just couldn’t help but highlight a few. This post is kinda like a BOTB, but holiday crafty style, and here are twenty five creations you’ve just gotta see!      

Cake circles and red striped fabric come together to form these charming and inexpensive peppermint striped placemats by Heather at Commonplace Beauty.

Crimson & White Christmas Tree

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

Today is the last of the Holiday Home parties, and Sarah is hosting Christmas trees, so it’s the perfect occasion to show you ours.  Just like last year (and because it reminds me of my grandmother who always had the same) I picked up another flocked tree at a local lot.  Instead of a tree skirt, we placed it in a wine barrel for a rustic look.  I’m using up all of my red decor this year, so the tree is covered in various favorite ornaments and also bulbs and flourishes in crimson shades.

Wedged in the tree are several branches of red berries for color and contrast.
