Hi friends! It’s officially Christmas decorating season! I’ve invited 17 super talented bloggers to join me in decking the halls, DIY-style! From now until Christmas, we’ll be sharing our inspiring and creative holiday decorating ideas with you! Check out this stellar lineup. You guys are in for a real treat.
Do you remember some of this stuff from last year’s Home Depot Holiday Style Challenge? Everything except for the scrap wood houses, that is.
Once again, I dug through my scrap wood pile (I don’t think it’s getting any smaller) and made a little village out of some leftover 2×4 pieces. Here’s a more detailed tutorial I posted last year on how to make these scrap wood houses. In a nutshell, just set the miter saw to a 45º angle, cut twice, then a quick sanding and a Sharpie marker later… voila! Super simple.
The natural wood and greenery tone down the glitz factor of the mixed metallics. It’s all about balance. And of course, we have a stocking for our beloved 100 lb. Rhodesian Ridgeback, Watson. You can read about his story here.
