Traffic Jam Weekend Link Party #304

Welcome to the first Traffic Jam Weekend Link Party of December. I love Christmas time. Y’all share some amazing posts, and it’s so hard to choose just one to feature! Before we get to the features and the party, let’s check out what’s been going on here on the blog over the past week.

Last week I shared many free printables that you can use for Christmas. I promised that I had a flirty Christmas wish list for you and your hubby to fill out for each other coming, and it’s here! Head over to the post and print it out and learn about a fun at home date night centered around these free printables.

I finally found those wood houses that are all over Pinterest, and I shared a tutorial for upcycling those into beautiful Christmas decor. You can customize these a million ways to fit your home.

Finally I shared how to make a large, 18″ round Christmas sign. Those round Christmas door hangers/wreaths/signs that are only 12″ go for $50-$60 on Etsy. You can make any size you’d like for $2 for the base then a few dollars for faux branches. I really love how this turned out. I used the fabric that I used in the no few fabric Christmas trees and the JOY sign. If you missed those, make sure to check them out! I used them all to create a little farmhouse vignette with the sign in the background.
