Tree People for the Kids’ Table


This is a great project for kids! Perhaps you are making a centerpiece for your dinner party, but your little ones want to help. Here’s a fun idea—jazz up the branches with a few accessories and wiggly eyes and use them as centerpieces for the kids’ table.  I used the leftover pieces of tree branches from when I made the tree card holders. You may also recall my earlier posts about burlap runners, balls, bunting, and yarn pompoms. These cheery, little, tree characters are a great way to have the kids’ table decor match the adult table!

Let’s Decorate Candles!


Doesn’t everyone love candles? They are warm, inviting, and make a space feel cozy. When shopping for candles, the fancier candles can get pricey, so why not make your own?

The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating and embellishing candles, so here are a few ideas.

Layered Food Labels

Labels add a nice finishing touch to your holiday spread and are a great way to tie all your decor together. It is increasingly common to see labels on prepared foods if they contain allergens. Due to the dietary concerns of my guests, I created icons to indicate whether a dish was vegetarian, contained halal meat, or contained nuts. Other useful labels might include Kosher, dairy, shellfish, etc.

Rustic Fabric & Burlap Balls

1 comment

These rustic balls are a great way to decorate on a minimal budget. Just grab some paper, some burlap and fabric, a little bit of glue, and you’ll wow your friends with your creative talent! Since I love combining textures and colors, I decided to make some with different textured fabric in addition to burlap. Add more variety to your display by centerpiece by making a range of sizes.
