15 Easy DIY Christmas Crafts and Projects - Marty's Musings

When I started my series 31 Days to a Beautiful Home on October 1st I had no idea if I would finish on time, or even reach the finish line. Yet here I am!

If you’ve been following along I’m so grateful for you! These last 31 days have been a labor of love.

I’ve included projects for decorating, crafting and memory keeping, everything you need for the start of a beautiful holiday season.

  1. Oh how I enjoy your blog! Of all the lovely things you have here, I had to chuckle and wonder where you got those angel napkin rings. You see, I worked at a ceramic/hobby shop in the 70’s and those are one of the things I did make for myself! I’ve lost them but I so remember painting them and the delightful little faces! Did you make them yourself? Since I live in the Pacific Northwest, I have so many things to choose from to decorate and I am going to use your table setting ideas with a twist of sphagnum moss and some fir cones and perhaps some lichen, as well. I procured a few pallets from a local oyster company and am also going to try my hand at your JOY hanging. Thank you so much for the ideas!

    1. Hi, Marilyn. So sorry this took me a bit to get back to you. I love that you recognized the angel napkin rings. I got them at a yard sale many years ago and use them in some way every Christmas. I think I only have 6 but wish I had 8! I’m sure your table will be just beautiful!

  2. Wonderful collection of adorable crafts! Thank you for sharing them with us at Snickerdoodle Sunday!
    Have a wonderful week! Pinned and tweeted to share 🙂
