I’ve seen a lot of hair tutorials for the holidays popping up lately, but the ones that look chic are anything but effortless to throw together in a hurry. And I for one don’t have 45 extra minutes laying around to get my hair looking just right before flying out the door for holiday parties, etc. What about you?
So, today’s holiday hair tutorial is simple AND quick… Kind of a no-fuss holiday (or non holiday) hair scenario, two ways in 10 minutes! Click through for the tutorial.
Every year, Jeff and I get a few new ornaments for our tree and add them to the collection we’ve been working on since we got together (plus a handful of ornaments from my childhood and his). I love the tradition of adding a couple of new ones each year. The only downside is, that year after year, our tree ends up looking really, really similar to the year before…because we use the same ornaments every year.
As much as I love that, and still plan to use some of the ornaments that we’ve had forever on the tree, I wanted to make some DIY batch ornaments to fill in for a new look. And today is the first one those ornaments! Click through to see how to make these DIY line drawing ornaments.
I’m getting seasonal in the kitchen this week with a Christmas cookie sandwich recipe that screams holiday vibes. It’s a gingerbread egg nog cookie sandwich recipe that is super easy to make and tastes amazingly rich (in a good way). And to make things more interesting, I’ve teamed up with a bunch of my blogger friends to share their favorite holiday cookie recipes too…it’s a Christmas cookie squad.
When I was a kid, I would wrap the entire family’s gifts for Christmas…even my own! My mom would just wrap mine in simple paper beforehand so I wouldn’t be able to peek, and then I’d wrap over it.
So, it probably goes without saying that when it comes to gift wrap during the holidays, I tend to get a little extra, and try to dream up unique ways to present / wrap the gifts that I’m giving. Whether it’s hand painted wrapping paper or custom gift toppers. And this year I’m getting a head start with DIY custom fabric gift wrap.
I partnered with Martha Stewart and Plaid Crafts to create some unique gift wrapping ideas that even the most beginner DIYer can totally nail.
I’ve been making asymmetrical DIY wreaths for the holidays for the last few years (ever since this holiday wreath workshop I hosted) and have been seeing them pop up more and more each year since. They’re probably one of my fave things to make during Christmas time because they’re so easy and look amazing (and smell good too).
So, today I’m sharing a tutorial for how to make asymmetrical holiday wreaths using fresh flowers and greenry. Including a must-have material for keeping fresh flowers alive longer for your wreaths that you’ve probably never heard of. Intrigued? Click through for the tutorial. Read More →
I love making DIY ornaments around the holidays because they’re great gifts (if you actually make cute ones) and they’re usually super easy to make. So, this year, I made a whole bunch of ornaments to share and today’s is my absolute fave, so I’m sharing these first…
Terracotta clay ornaments! They’re super easy to make, super affordable, and actually look like something you’ll want to put on the tree (or add to stockings, etc). A batch of more than 20 ornaments cost me about $10 to make and they look like something your could buy from a cool local shop (bonus!). Click through to make your own.
