Getting ready for Christmas: 7 ideas

There are just so many fun Christmas projects that I would LOVE to be able to work on!! And there is not enough time to be getting ready for Christmas! I thought I would share a couple of Christmas projects I spotted that would be easier/less time consuming.

 

Advent Calendars

1. Last year I made these Advent Calendar Boxes. Each box contains an ornament to hang on the tree and a Scripture verse to go with it! Check out my post on it.

Cone Trees

3. These DIY Paper Cone Trees from The Happy Tulip are so easy to make!! I love how you don’t have to go out and buy anything – just use what you have around the house. The cones are made from cereal boxes – isn’t that awesome?!

 

 

4. I LOVE the simplicity of these Music Sheet Christmas Trees from Domestic Fashionista!! So elegant. If you don’t want to buy Styrofoam cone forms, then just form a cone from a cereal box (as Amy shows how)!

 

 

Getting into the baking mood?

5. I SOO need to make this!! Bubbly Nature Creations posted this Everything Christmas Trifle and I am going to make it for Christmas. I love everything in it!

 

 

6. Try something from this list of 20 Fabulous Peppermint Recipes from Nest of Posies! I know I am!!

 

 

Need a quick Christmas photocard?

7. I LOVE Domestic Fashionista’s Christmas photocard!! She offers a free downloadable version in green, mustard, or red!!

 

 

Love these ideas!! And there is so much more on the web – don’t you LOVE blogland?
