I’m especially excited to decorate for the holidays this year because my husband and I are moving into our first house this week and hosting family and friends for Christmas! Things have been a bit hectic as you can imagine, but holiday crafting is still a pretty big priority since we’ll have company arriving in just nine days. I’m sharing some of my favorite holiday crafts to inspire you to make your home extra special this holiday season.
This layered canvas wreath is one of my all time favorite holiday wreaths. I made a similar one last year as a present for my sister using leftover scraps of card stock and blue and brown felt – because I didn’t have canvas on hand at the time. I just love all the colors and buttons.

I’ve been saving wine bottles since Thanksgiving to recycle into some beautiful table center pieces like these. Rosemary grows like a weed in Portland, so I like to trim the bushes and use rosemary stalks and holly branches in mine.

I’m always looking for a simple but unique window display – this one will definitely brighten your home from the inside and out. I especially like how inexpensive this one is to make. You might even have all the materials on hand. It’s also a great way to reuse extra ornaments.

This snowy village is brilliant. I’m definitely going to try make some of these for my mantel display. I bet it would look great with accents of colored glitter as well.

I make a few new yarn based wreaths every year, one for the door, another for over the mantle and extras for friends. Isn’t this design gorgeous? I especially like the addition of the little artificial bird. I’m always looking for a new way to use these.

These sock snow people are adorable and easy to make. Kids can even help with this one, by designing their own sock snow boys and girls. Great inexpensive decorating idea and such a fun way to use your socks!
