Simple Christmas Crafts From Around the Web

I’m partial to crafts and DIYs that use simple, mostly every day supplies and end up with something beautiful.  I hope these ideas inspire you to use what you have and make something wonderful.

Edie’s Pom Pom wreath, and you must click to see more photos of it in her beautiful home

I love the asymmetrical ornament swag that Kristen made at The Hunted Interior

Hoop Dreams from Karen @The Art of Doing Stuff.  She cracks me up because this is actually a photoshopped version of her year-round embroidery hoop art.  But it’s so inspiring I had to include it.

Plaster & Doilies from Marianne @Songbird

A boxwood Christmas wreath @Just So Lovely, I like how Lizette made an oval instead of a regular, run-of-the-mill circle, it actually got me thinking about trying to make a uniquely shaped wreath.

Christmas Countdown from Emily at Jones Design, she even has a free printable for the tags.  I bet you could shop the house for this one and get all 25 days.

Geometric Paper Table Runner from Oh Happy Day

I adore this project.  A deer made out of words on a window. The tutorial is at Taking Steps Home.

A 15 minute project with old wood, ribbon and screws @ Beyond the Picket Fence

Simple Fresh Wreaths (with embroidery hoops) from Markham Street Design, just use whatever greenery you have in the yard.

PS, remember last year’s favorite things party?  Let’s do that again, pick a favorite thing for $15 or less and link up on Friday.
