Holly jolly Christmas
The Baker family knows how to decorate their house for the festive season without going overboard. Their 6 simple DIYs create the perfect cozy holiday home for their family to enjoy.
1 Guiding light
A holiday tradition, Advent candles are lit each Sunday in the weeks leading up to Christmas. In keeping with her home’s red and white holiday scheme, homeowner Holly Baker found these numbered candles to indicate the weeks. She notes that these would be a cinch to create with white candles, stencils and red paint.
2 Mood makers
Nothing compares to candlelight when it comes to creating an intimate atmosphere on chilly winter evenings. A grouping of candles sits in a bright red tray; when it’s lit en masse, it evokes a serene holiday scene. The rustic-look candlesticks were crafted by tightly wrapping twine around the necks and bases of glass bottles and then securing the ends with glue.
