In case you’re not the traditional decor type, you’ve just determined you’re not messing with untangling lights this year, or you loved our tree alternatives from last year (here, here, and here) I’ve got a good DIY alternative for you. Albeit the’yre a little bit abstract, but these DIY Christmas trees are definitely easy to put up and take down, plus you can add as much as little color as you want to suit your color scheme
To make them doubly awesome, you can basically create a whole mini forest with as inexpensive as they are, and your pets won’t dare wear one of these, ha!..
Hello fellow DIY enthusiasts, Teri here! Today’s project is oh so simple but has maximum impact for entertaining or just a casual rendezvous over tea for that matter. These DIY geometric coasters pack a punch and can be used individually or slotted together to create a patterned trivet for serving. It’s basically the cutest (and easiest) puzzle you’ll ever see!
Coasters can be dull but these will add a pop of custom color to your table, and I can vouch that once you’ve made one, it’s absolutely addictive! They also make great gifts for the holiday season too. Why not package up a stack with a matching ribbon and spread some patterned cheer?
When hosting Holiday gatherings (or any gathering for that matter!), I, Erin, like to have an easy activity on hand as an icebreaker for when guests arrive. This year I’m hosting Christmas and aiming for guests to be able to help themselves to a craft cocktail upon (and maybe learn something new at the same time!). So I created a set of info-graphic Old Fashioned DIY recipe cocktail napkins with the mixology instructions printed right on them! They’ll be perfect to set out with the bar cart party spread.
As the host I especially love this project because guests can spring for a refill as they please. No need for you to play bartender all night– you already have enough on your plate!…
