As we approach the final days to Christmas, I thought it would be helpful to share with you a summary of holiday ideas from bloggers around the web. I have rounded up all their holidays ideas with links in this post. This post is divided into three categories: Crafts, Recipes and Tips.
I recently shared with you how to make these easy paper snowflakes which are great to adorn presents or to use as ornaments. You can read about it HERE and watch a short video that shows you how I made them.
You are probably familiar with Cindy since we have collaborated on a few projects in the past. She has been sharing some great ideas this holiday season. Most recently she created this video on making the cutest sweater snowmen. While you are there, check out her other videos.
You have probably been receiving Christmas cards, Nicolle from Our Little Nest, has a great idea on how to display them. Nicolle has a post all about it HERE.
There are some cute ornaments made out of wood slices HERE. These would be great for a woodland or cabin themed Christmas!
Kim shows you how you can make these little wooden Christmas trees HERE and Juliet shows you to make Christmas trees using stamped tin HERE. These little trees would be great for decorating a fireplace mantel.
Carol shows us how to make some cute felt garlands HERE. I definitely want to make these garlands next year.
Look at this cute wooden sled that Sara has repainted for decor. I love that she did painted in the colors of a Hudson point blanket.
Liberty shares some ideas for how to decorate your kitchen cupboards HERE.
Donna shows us how to make our own Christmas village HERE.
How cute is this little snow globe? Nicole from Adorn the Table shows you how to make them HERE.
Renae at Peacock Ridge Farm has some great tips for a Hot Cocoa Bar. If Cocoa isn’t your thing then there is an Apple Cider Bar that Christin shares with us that you can put together instead.
This recipe for the Best Christmas Tree Dip , from Nicolle at Our Tiny Nest, sounds amazing and easy to make. Although, fair warning, it does use cream cheese. We are presently having a cream cheese shortage here in the northeast.
JJ offers us an easy and healthy recipe for spicy cranberry sauce HERE. I certainly appreciate some healthier food this time of year.
There is a great recipe, from Tammy, for amazing hot cocoa HERE. I bet it’s extra delicious when served in a vintage Santa mug.
Finally, learn how to make THESE soft buttery pecan caramels on the blog Pine Cones and Acorns. What a great gift to make for your neighbors!
Melanie offers us some very useful tips and tools for wrapping gifts HERE and Regina has some fantastic ideas on how to adorn your gifts HERE.
Robyn has an entire post devoted to making wrapped gifts look special. She also has linked to many other bloggers who also have ideas. This is definitely worth a read. As an aside, isn’t Robyn’s home beautiful?
Finally, a fellow New Yorker, Sherry has written a very useful post on how to decorate and create an elegant Christmas tree HERE. She has a great tip on how to place your ornaments so that the tree looks full and evenly balanced. I am definitely incorporating her tip next year when I decorate my tree.
I was absolutely inspired and amazed at how many ideas there were to share. These bloggers all want to share their ideas, tips and DIYs with you.
