I’m planning to make these pretzel log cabins, they look really cute & easier than a gingerbread house!

I didn’t take a pic of it but I made my centerpiece that’s on my table 2 years ago.  It’s really pretty.

 @Ms_Purple:  I’ve seen that on pinterest and I love that tree! I’ve been dying to do it myself and forgo my traditional tree for a year. 

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  this was my mantel last year when it was in progress, I reused a whole bunch of wedding stuff and used leftovers (like the flowers and ribbon). I got all the ideas off of pinterest and like sites.

I’ve made a few christmas ornament wreaths using a closet hanger – they look great but they are a bit of a pain in the ass, bc they pop off. 

 

 

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  LOVE that ornament xmas tree! So cool!

I actually had a ‘pinterest’ party this weekend so some girlfriends and I could make ornamnets….

 

Here is my tree with some of the ornaments we did this weekend –

top: glass bulb with our wedding invitation; I also did some with our last 2 years of Christmas photo-postcards. I think that will be neat to have every year. 🙂

2nd: Mason jar lids painted with chalkboard paint

3rd: My DH cut a couple logs into wood chips, we drilled holes to hang and used sharpies to decorate! These were a big hit and super easy!

4th: Burlap bulbs – burlap wrapped around styrofoam balls – looked way easier than it was, we quit after 3!

Last year I did stars made from twigs, as well as bulbs covered in old book pages. The pine cone ornaments were also DIY a couple years ago. Love them all. I plan to try and add a new DIY ornament every year – although I think I’m going to need a bigger tree soon!

@Josina:  I love the idea of the ornaments with your wedding invite and old christmas cards!  Such a good idea.

A couple years ago when I was super broke, I made DIY photo coasters for family.  It was pretty easy even for a non-crafty person, and everyone LOVED them.  It was super cheap and not horribly time-consuming.
