Hello Gorgeous! Are you feeling Christmassy yet? Well today I want to start the first in a short series gathering together my favorite festive pins and creating from them a scrumptious little list of festive puttery treats. Does that sound like a plan?
Good… So let’s get going! You can find all my festive puttery pins on this board and I would love to have you follow me there…

* First up: votives strung with ribbon from a log wedged across your window as in the lovely, evocative image from House To Home. Something I do at the kitchen window every year with a collection of mercury silver baubles on gingham ribbon.

* Now the simplest, prettiest of tree ornaments fashioned from old paper, a crocheted doillie and a vintage button. Find instructions over at Beautiful Nest

* Tie simple bows around clutches of holly on  every do for a little nod to Christmas on bedroom doors, like this lovely green velvet bow on Christmas In the City.

* Re-invent ugly baubles by  decoupaging them with scraps of vintage paper and giving them a final sprinkle of white glitter as they have done here on Flea MArket style

* Remember to have tiny trees as well as your main one. Even branches stood in large jars can bring a little seasonal magic to a Christmassy corner like this one from Country Life in Norregard.

* Fashion yourself a darling little string snowman for your craft room like this one from Stipje

* Fill a glass jar with old baubles and beads like this one from Very Merry Vintage style

* Mix up a big batch of Christmas Kitchen Sink cookies to serve as home from school treats throughout December…

* And finally for today, a quick and easy tutorial showing you how to distress new ornaments into beautiful tarnished submission with nothing but nail varnish remover…

Happy December Housekeepers. Keep pinning!

  1. Love the pretty green velvet bow but the holly might be a bit of a nasty surprise when you open the door! Hope you and Finn are both enjoying the run up to Christmas!
