We had Halloween and then BAM! Christmas is everywhere. Every year we are surrounded by amazing decorations and I for one am always inspired. What doesn't inspire me is the though of opening my wallet to pay for something I could easily make myself. All I need is a little know-how. And for that I look no further than my fellow Canadian inspirational content creators (aka bloggers). Here are ten bright ideas to help make your Christmas a little brighter, lighter on the pocket book, and unique. 1) How cute are these little trees made from scouring pads!? I mean, come on! Adorable. And who doesn't have scouring pads and five minutes (when you should be cleaning)? 2) These gold dipped ornaments just scream pretty. They scream in a pretty way, of course:) 3) These have to be the easiest little last minute holiday hostess gift around! 4) If you're ready to test out your painting skills, these adorable little ornaments are for you. Rustic and chic all at the same time, and so lovely the way they can be customized for milestones or as gifts. 5) The beauty of DIY is taking something old and making it new again. I love this easy transformation from sweater to stocking. 6) If you're looking for a lovely (but inexpensive) way to dress up your gifts this Christmas, these jingle bell ornaments are delightfully simple and so very festive. 7) I love this project! Amazing how something so ugly ( an old pallet lid) can be transformed into something so lovely. And like the sign says, "Let it Snow!" 8) What is not to love about this rustic advent calendar? Such a lovely way to celebrate and to customize the 'treats' found inside. 9) I took our chipped old nutcrackers and spray painted them gold last year. This was such a simple way to glam up the mantle and took under 20 minutes. 10) This has got to be my favourite holiday DIY! How amazing is this!? If you are looking for the perfect Christmas gift for someone this year, this would definitely be on my list. How do you like to decorate each year? Do you follow the same style year after year?
