Spreading Christmas CHEER!

Hello all! I hope you had a lovely weekend! I got absolutely ZERO done – Saturday we quite literally laid around all day, and only got our butts up to go see a movie. Today was spent visiting my grandparents who live about three hours away. It was a lot of driving time but it was SO wonderful to see them!

So the Christmas list hasn’t gotten any shorter, but whatev. I’ll be all supersonic this week and power through.

Today I wanted to share some Christmas craft and decor ideas that have caught my eye over the past few weeks. I’ve seen SO MUCH goodness out there, these don’t even scratch the surface.

If you are completely awesome, maybe you can throw some of these together this week? If not, we’ve all got next year. ;)

When I saw Michelle’s spray painted nutcrackers, it was one of those why-didn’t-I-think-of-that moments:

Decor and the Dog

She found them for super cheap at Hobby Lobby and just sprayed them in glossy red. I was all psyched cause I had the glossy red, just not the nutcrackers. High-tailed it to Hob Lob and NOTHIN. Goodwill…nothin.

Next year fo sho. ;)

If you are giving away some scrumptious sweets this week, Mique has you covered with some adorable printables:

Thirty Handmade Days 

Almost makes me want to bake. Or something. ;)

Check out Hannah’s cutie candy cane tree skirt:

Can you believe it was made with hot glue? No sewing people!

I think Lakeitha’s Christmas table is just beautiful:

I love the little Christmas trees on the table! And check out that GOODWILL chandelier! And those velvety chairs (what is that, velvet?). I LOVE.

Absolutely LOVE all the great handmade boy gifts Charlie compiled: handmade toys for boys

Attempting Aloha

My favorite is the super hero fort kit. Hello, I would have loved that as a kid!

I love love LOVE Laura’s rustic Christmas mantel:

Seriously. Isn’t it gorgeous? Magazine-worthy, for sure.

If you’re looking for some bling, you’ll love Cassie’s sparkly tree craft!:

They’re just sequins and stick pins but they make a major statement!

Finally, I thought Debbie’s Pottery Barn pillow was just too sweet:  knock off pottery barn christmas pillow

Confessions of a Plate Addict

So pretty! And brilliant -- she used sleeves from a Goodwill sweater to make the stockings!

I love blogland!! :)

There you go – plenty of goodies to keep you busy this week. Cause I know you’ll all be sitting around twiddling your thumbs. ;)

I have my kiddo and hubby home for the next two weeks and I’m in heaven. I’ll still be posting but probably not quite as much – gotta spend some time with my loves.

In the next few weeks, I hope to recap this year’s big projects and share what I have planned for the year – can’t wait!

Have a great start to the holiday week!
