Quick and Easy Christmas Decor

I absolutely adore certain script fonts- their graceful flourishes add so much dimension to various scrapbooking/card projects. When I saw this Christmas Words Set featured on Snap Click Supply Co., I instantly fell in love! … and, I knew these elements would translate beautifully into a piece of gorgeous home decor!

This festive project came together in just a few simple steps:

  1. Cut out one of the elements using a Silhouette machine on white card stock. Size your element to fit within an 8×10-inch frame.
  2. Adhere your word element to a piece of red card stock.
  3. Add a small medallion embellishment.
  4. Adorn with small and mediums sized rhinestones.

My medallion embellishment consisted of a digital JOY element from the Aspen Frost collection. I mounted this decorative piece onto a red circle punch and a gold scallop. A small red bow completed the look!

Valentine Decorations

Is it just me or does winter start to feel dreadfully long by the time Valentine’s Day rolls around?  Despite the snow still on the ground, these beautiful tulips make it feel more like Spring.

Flower displays happen to be one of my favorite ways to decorate for Valentine’s Day.

Here’s a peak at an evening Valentine table setting I used for Pinks and Drinks one year:

Candle light, flowers (real and fake), and crystal… a tried and true recipe for easy, beautiful decor!

Remember our manzanita tree decked out with Halloween decor? Here it is transformed for Valentine’s Day:

One last decorating idea: create a display featuring treasured cards collected over the years.  This past year, my Dad helped me transform this antique frame leftover from my Great-Aunt’s painting stash into a fully functional display piece.  (He used piano wire to create a backing grid!)  I clipped my favorite Valentines to this frame using a variety of small, decorative clothespins.

One Decoration that I’m Keeping Up…

It’s the end of January and I wanted to share one Christmas decoration that I couldn’t bare to take down right away: my 2013 Holiday Card Display.Christmas Card Display

I LOVE love love receiving these greetings in the mail.  Normally, I would have hung them on a decorative frame in the hallway leading to the kitchen.  With our entire first floor in disarray due to our kitchen renovation, I had to find a new spot.  Sick of leaving them in a pile, I randomly started pinning greetings to our bannister garland.

Turns out, the entryway stairs are a great spot for showcasing notes from friends and family!  I will definitely be recreating this display next year!

These pins are also full of great ideas: HERE, HERE, & HERE.  I especially love the idea of hanging cards on a blank wall and arranging them in a fun shape.  How about you?
