Faux Fireplace

Advent Calendar

Everyone loves to count down to the big day, and advent calendars are a festive way to add anticipation to the upcoming holiday season. Forget those chocolate advent calendars and make this year’s a part of your holiday décor!

Creating this décor piece is easier than you think, and you get to decide how it’s going to look!

If you have hardwood floors, you can use wood as your base for the calendar and then stain it to match the color of your floors. With carpet and tile floor, try painting the wood to match your floor color or choose ornaments that are similar in color to your floor. You will be surprised on how great it will look!

Home Depot has a great step-by-step guide to get your started, but don’t stop there. Be creative and think outside the box! How are you going to make it your own unique piece?

Holiday Throw Pillows

Themed throw pillows are a simple and low key way to decorate your home for the holidays, but holiday pillows can be quite costly, especially since you only use them a few months out of the year. However, with a quick trip to the craft store you can make your own themed pillows!

Just follow a few simple steps, and you’ll have a set of holiday pillows without even having to pull out your sewing machine. Go to Style Me Pretty Living to get the full details on this project.

Also, what’s great about this DIY project is that it will be easy to integrate into your room’s design.  A white pillow will go with just about any color scheme, but you could also step outside of the box and match the pillows to the color of your floor.

Fun Tip: You can also take this idea and apply it to other holidays. All you have to do is switch out the pillow cover!

Festive Sign

A festive sign is the perfect holiday touch for any room in the house, from the entry-way to the living room. There are plenty of décor options to choose from at just about any store, but why not just create your own?

By using leftover crafting supplies and other items from around your house, you can create a unique piece without spending a lot of money. All you need is some wood, paint, and a holiday stencil of your choice to get started. You won’t believe how simple this project is!

Live Laugh Rowe has a great step-by-step guide to help walk you through the creative process and help give you an idea on where to start.
