Pink Holiday Decor

Christmas decorating with pink

This festive living room featured on Poppytalk had me thinking of how much I love the color pink during the Christmas season. Simply a pale hue of red, pinks are fabulous paired with blues, greens and golds as a palette for any of the upcoming holidays. Certainly not traditional, pink holiday decor can be playful, elegant and sophisticated. Take a look at a few inspiring pink holiday decor perfect for your Thanksgiving tablescape, Christmas vignettes and News Year’s Eve dinner party.

Handmade Christmas Gifts for Kids to Make

DIY snow globe with vintage feel

While I was getting crafty and decorating glass globe ornaments, one of my little ones asked if she could help. Because the glass ornaments were too fragile (one had already broke – should have picked up the plastic globe ornaments in retrospect!) and I sadly declined her offer. It made me think of holiday crafts that would be great for the little ones and would make fabulous gifts as well. I’m sharing five of my fave handmade Christmas gifts for kids  at Wayfair!

Easy DIY Christmas Ornaments

It was a crafty weekend! Using clear glass globe ornaments picked up at Michaels, I created five festive Christmas tree ornaments. This craft isn’t messy, doesn’t take a lot of time and is super easy to do. If you wanted your kids to do this project, I would recommend using the plastic clear globes.

For the trio above, gold was the theme. I filled the first with gold glitter (I’ve heard using floor was helps the glitter stick inside, but I didn’t use any here). For the second ornament, I drew tiny dots with a gold metallic Sharpie oil based pen. The gold glitter polka dots (found at Michaels) on the third one were simply stickers!

Departing from the metallic gold and glitter, these ornaments above were filled with white feathers and tiny flocked pine cones. Super simple.

All of the supplies you can find at Michaels or another craft store. And I’m telling you, these are easy DIY Christmas ornaments… If I can do it, you can do it!

Happy holidays,
