Christmas DIY Ornaments and Décor

4 Dec

I love DIY holiday décor and Christmas crafts. Once the decorations are up and the crafting beings mundane tasks, like watching television or reading a book, seem so much more exciting and festive. I have come to the conclusion that life is better when surrounded by twinkle lights.

I’ve been looking for some simple and modern ornament and décor ideas for the next Crafty Ladies event. Here is a roundup of some of my favourites found on the blogosphere. I absolutely love the Joy to the World poster and snowman globes – genius! As Emily says in her post, “They say ‘holiday’ but in a totally young, hip, way.” Agreed.
