Only got 5 minutes? Well, this craft is for you. It’s quick and easy, and you just need a few things: a glass cheese dome (a cloche or an upside-down vase set on a plate will do, too), a few white mini bottle brush trees (you can find these at craft supply stores like Michaels), loose fake snow and an old-school car (this one’s actually an ornament from Pottery Barn).

Last year two of my oh-so-clever friends made a Christmas tree out of green painters tape and I thought they we’re brilliant. They live in a small condo where space is tight and technically they weren’t suppose to have a real tree in their unit. So these two crafty ladies made their own! Check out some other innovative non-traditional tree ideas I’ve come across for those who can’t have a real tree…or just want a fun holiday DIY project!
Everyone knows I love anything equestrian. Of course, that also extends to my decor. But sometimes I may go a little too far – such was the case of my recent purchase of a unicorn (!!!) trophy head. But it’s not as bad as you think.
One of the most difficult things for me about shopping for holiday gifts is that I can be totally selfish. Often I’ll find things that I want when I’m supposed to be shopping for others! Such was the case when I was shopping with Style at Home’s senior style editor Ann Marie Favot at the One of A Kind show. Ann Marie and I have similar taste (although she tends to like all decor accessories in pale colours while I have a tendency to prefer decor accessories that are rich and dark). When I first saw Ceramik B’s elegant pottery, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. When I looked at Ann Marie, I realized that she felt the same way. Best of all? The tableware pieces are available in pale grey AND dark grey.
Sunday Suppers, a cooking centre located in Brooklyn, NYC, has just opened an online pop-up shop that will sell a selection of handmade gifts created in association with Simplesong Design. My favourite item is their Black Sea Salt.
