Retro Christmas decorations are fun, colorful and so unique! I love the bright look of a mid-century Christmas or colorful drawings from early advertisements.

Let it Snow

Here in the Northwest, we very rarely see a white Christmas. It’s usually a gray Christmas. Because of this, we’ve learned to make our own snow. Here are some ways I’d love to bring some homemade snow into my home this year:

Every year, I tell myself I’m going to make a topper for my little tree. My tree still has a bald top. There are so many gorgeous toppers out there, it’s hard to decide what will work well for my little 3 foot tree and my love of Scandinavian Christmas decor. This year, I’m going to make myself one. I’ve got tons of inspiration and no excuses now!

With all phones having high quality cameras now, we all have way more pictures than we have places to put them. Instead of just popping them in a frame, there are a ton of ways you can transfer your photo to an unexpected medium. Here are some of my favorites.

Make Your Pumpkins

Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

I’m not exactly what you would call “outdoorsy”.  While I definitely jump at the chance to go pick out pumpkins at the pumpkin patch, I’m mostly going for the hot apple cider rather than stomping around in the mud and carrying a pumpkin around. I think this year, I’ll avoid the muddy pumpkin patches and make myself some cider while I make my own pumpkins!

Rustic Felt or Wool Pumpkin

I love these tiny pumpkins and think they would make a super cute display with a bunch made from old suits. It’s a great way to upcycle clothes that no longer fit, or use up fabric scraps!
