Not Martha

christmas decorating

Evany showed off a little crocheted Christmas tree she received as a dinner party favor (so smart!) and shows off her own little forest. She points us to this thread on Craftster – Crocheted Christmas Tree with Buttons for how to make them. If you are like me and don’t know how to crochet (yet) see the Soft Tree sewing pattern at Little Birds.

These Santa Lucia dolls at Posie Gets Cozy are so sweet.

Mantle villages abound and make me wish I had a mantle: made out of old Christmas cards at Danny Seo’s Simply Green, all lit and pretty at Wise Craft and Angry Chicken and a sweet little one made from cardboard at Kiddley with a decorated update.

Kiddley has been filled with good holiday stuff, check out the pom-pom garland, , paper Santa Lucia crowns, Crazy Hat Crackers, Advent Stick and Advent Activities.

    Hey Megan,

    I love your site and have been reading through it a lot lately. I have a question that I thought you might be able to help with. With Christmas so close, lots of vendors have been giving us tins full of candy and cookies. My predicament is that I don’t want to throw the tins out but they are so ugly. Do you know of any projects or ways to reuse/redecorate these tins? They are all shapes and sizes and I could totally use them to store different craft project stuff in but not in their current styles. Thanks!

    Love those trees! I bought some fun fabric to make some but haven’t had time yet.

    Hope you’re ok after last night!

    Dear Megan – I wish I could eat your blog. I have discovered it a couple of weeks ago and have been reading the old entries day and night. You are brilliant. And I love your kitchen. It amazes me how detail oriented you are and how you find the energy to focus on all the details and fix the problems one by one.
    Your fan,
