Don’t forget to link up on Happiness is Homemade. Now let’s get to the posts that I shared over the last week

The Christmas shopping season is here, and I’ve teamed up with some lovely ladies to bring you The Joy of Giving Giveaway. Enter to win a $175 gift card to spend on Etsy. Imagine all of the great things you can buy with it! There are daily entries, so make sure you came back and enter every day until December 15. Follow me on every social media platform to increase your chances to win!

Don’t pay an arm and a leg for birch wood log bundles this winter when you can make your own faux logs for pennies on the dollar. Let me show you how I made mine!

Tuesday I joined up with some talented bloggers to bring you a Winter Wonderland on a Tray tour. I shared four Christmas tray ideas to help give you some inspiration in your Christmas decor this year.

This Week’s Features!

Penny over at Penny’s Vintage Home shared a roundup of the ways she has decorated her family room Christmas trees over the years as she is deciding how to decorate them this year. You will love how gorgeous they all are!

If you have any vintage handkerchiefs, Cecelia of My Thrift Store Addiction shared a gorgeous way to turn them into unique Christmas ornaments without having to destroy them, sewing, or hours of hard work!

Handmade Christmas cards are a great way to show your love for your friends and family that you can’t afford to buy individual gifts for. Linda from Paper Seedlings is a talented paper crafter and shared this beautifully designed Christmas card that is great inspiration for your own 2022 cards.

Marie over at Interior Frugalista created an adorable faux gingerbread reindeer and pinecone garland that you can make for just a few bucks. It will save you a ton of time as well as money on making homemade gingerbread cookies!

These DIY wired wood bead Christmas trees made by Donna over at Modern on Monticello are a great addition to any farmhouse style Christmas decor. A huge plus for this project is that you can remove the beads and use them for a future project. What more could a crafter ask for?!
