Buffalo check is the perfect pattern to use for a farmhouse Christmas theme. These 70+ affordable Christmas decorations from Amazon are a must have this season!

I absolutely love the way my DIY Christmas tray turned out. It goes perfectly with my farmhouse Christmas decor. You can make it for about $3!

This Christmas ornament tree is another affordable decoration that you can make using Dollar Tree supplies. You can make it for $2.50 if you have ornaments or $5 if you don’t.

This Week’s Features!

Advent season will be here before you know it, and I’m featuring two DIY advent calendars that you can make to help you countdown to Christmas Day. This one by Christine over at The DIY Dreamer is a cute and easy fabric calendar that even I can sew!

This ornament advent calendar shared by Donna of An Organized Season is so pretty. If you don’t want to use only simple ball ornaments, you may have to wait until next year to make it since you have to buy 24 ornaments for it. You can do what Donna did and purchase clearance ornaments after Christmas for a unique calendar with a different ornament for every day. Or you can make it now and use ball ornaments this year since you can buy a pack affordably, and plan for new ornaments next year.

My son and I were looking for a cute Christmas craft that he and I could easily make together, and these bottle top ornaments would have been perfect! I love the different shapes you can make with them.

This fresh cranberry garland with faux sugar made by Marie of Interior Frugalista is gorgeous! This is one project I’m definitely going to be making this year.

Claire of Picture Box Blue shared this lovely Christmas decoration from an upcycled cabinet door. I love the botanical photos that she added to the glass doors. She has kindly shared the printables to use for this project or for any other ideas you may have.

Have a Happy Halloween my friends!
