Christmas Decorating

There’s something almost magical about the aura that a Christmas tree creates in a room. I told Logan I never want to take ours down. :) Though I usually don’t put up much else besides a few nativities and an advent calendar, this year there were a couple ideas I found to be especially beautiful ::

This simple snowflake DIY is gorgeous, and would look good in almost any context. If I did this, I’d buy extra wooden beads and make a necklace! Isn’t that pale wood just breathtaking?

An unexpected take on the Christmas garland, these gold-tipped feathers are both festive and rustic. Honestly, this is another DIY I probably would want to incorporate into my year-round decorating.

These are Easter ornaments, but you get the idea. I think you could also use baking clay for this project, which is surprisingly easy and fool-proof to work with. This particular project would be fun to do with kids, I think.

One of my favorite things about having an iPhone is the ease with which you can snap as many photos as you want. I have loved experimenting with photography these last few years, but I rarely actually display any of my photos. I think this gift-wrapping is genius, because it’s easy, affordable, and would make your gifts so wonderfully personal. And the twine and sprig of green add just the perfect touch.

This is technically a beverage, but that sage makes the glasses of champagne a show-stopper. Logan’s family loves to toast at any and every occasion, so I’m looking forward to adding this pretty garnish for an unexpected element to a Christmas tradition.

What about you? How have you decorated for Christmas? Do you keep things simple or do you love to be extravagant in your giving and decorating? Any clever Christmas DIYs you’ve found?
