Seasonal Holiday decor that is inspiring from Pinterest:
silloette cut out with glass block and lights:
Martha screenprint stencils on a Christmas ball:
Create a niche, even a box with recycled wood (yes the pallet wood would work in this situation) and create a place for a collection. Can actually be put away as a whole unit, easy to take back out next season. This one is actually in a cabinet.
Stryofoam ball and toothpicks! An old craft done with modern glitter:
White plastic spoon 'Laurel' wreath, good for any season:
Pine needle tassels! Not sure if these could be saved since the dried ones have no scent and turn brown.
For those using Burlap and naturals with bling:
LOVE this Santa hat:
Use the Mirror glass spray on old cheap ornaments to give them a vintage feel:
Woodland scenes in a basket (can be stored as a whole unit and just pulled out next year!)
Wapping tulle around lights to give them a soft haze and you can use any color for your personal Christmas decor.
Stick garland for a natural tree:
I posted these not to inspire you to get to work making things for Christmas, BUT just to open our minds to possibilities! Or maybe something can be added to what you already have in decor (another layer perhaps).
I want to wish you ALL a Happy Holiday season and a Merry Christmas to those who celebrate!
Another use for Christmas lights!
Great photo inspiration! My favorite is the glass blocks.
Here is one I wish I had found earlier. Amaryllis with bulb covered vase. Maybe next year!
Thank's for all the great ideas.
MR, thanks for all the ideas and inspiration, which I will enjoy vicariously.
Annie, wow! What a great idea. My three giant red amaryllis bulbs are already blooming in a red ceramic cachepot, otherwise I'd cover them with ornaments. Maybe next year.
These pics demonstrate why pinterest is my favorite go to site these days.
I esp love the costumes there.
Wonder what knot was used on the twig garland?
Of course why these all look so great is because we are seeing them in isolation from their larger surroundings. People are amazing and creative and very generous in sharing.
I posted this for inspiration for the Holidays!
annie, LOVE that covered base! How special to add a color you are working with!
I have no tree top planned and thought that idea was nice, that is a dollar store star with a print that she posts on the blog to print out yourself and cut and apply to the front of the star. I thought that was clever!
LOS, I wondered too about the knot to connect the branch pieces. I would like to use driftwood pieces found on the beach. She mentions on her blog that she used regular single knots and that some came loose. She recommended applying hot glue to the knots to keep them snug. I think tying two knots might fix that problem. Pictures from her blog on how she used this garland.
I post the photos from Pinterest because each photo leads to the links where they came from so you can find the source of the photo to find out more information IF you want to know more.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Mary Ruth,

Some really great ideas! I really like the glass block idea and I think I'll pass it along to my artistic sister. I think she'll love it!
The wreath made out of plastic spoons blew me away.
I love them all. I am inspired. Especially love the idea of the pine needle tassels and adding a scene in a basket. The first one with the glass blocks I planned on doing sometime but havn't gotten around to it yet.

Found this site for sillhoette of deer if you want to save it or print it to use in your decor.
Silhouette downloaded is NOT on a grey background.. it rests on whatever background tone you choose. IF you decide to save it as a jgp instead - it will then have a white background. Same image facing right and one facing left.
