Christmas Decor

Is it possible I've gone a little Christmas crafting wild? I usually prefer sewing projects, but for some reason, this year it's all about the crafts. I'm just bored with all my same old decor, which doesn't take long, so add a little new to old grime and I'm happy again! Crafting is such a mood lifter.

Since Jessie added so many wreaths on her previous post I was inspired enough to finally make a couple I've been eyeing on Pinterest.

Classic burlap bubble wreath (super easy!) I did this while my kids napped. I'm all about doing projects that only take a nap time or a day. 

I did another version using a metal clothes hanger bent into a circle, with strips of burlap folded onto it. Adding it to my mirror in my living room gave it a fresh change. (I think so, anyway!)

Along with the wreaths I made this super fantastic no sew tree skirt! For the last 5 years, I've only used a blanket or fabric for my tree skirt. Every year I said, "I'm not buying a tree skirt, I'll make one" Well, my husband it working A LOT so I've got plenty of time and tada! It happened! Again, thank you pinterest!
 Ooooh, look at all that ruffly goodness!!! Now add a gift....(to your sister!)

 ....and then add more gifts!

I do have some more to share, but I have to wait until AFTER Christmas because they're gifts for certain people who also blog here *wink wink*
Thanks for looking!


  1. They all look great! I love the wreath on your mirror - and you made the tree skirt! I've been eyeing that project forever - is it REALLY no-sew?! It looks like it took forever.
    So cute!
    And I'm excited about my gift! :)

  2. It's REALLY no sew. Cut abric strips & a base fabric to stick them to. It's ALL hot glued on. It did take a while but I got done in a day. I used 2 1/2 old curtain panels for the ruffles
