On the topic of Pinterest (and in the spirit of the holidays) I have decided to compile a few of my personal favorite pins. These will be sure to kick your holidays into high gear, or at least inspire your own pin-worthy ideas. Enjoy!
This pin takes you directly to the site that displays for you 25 very different ornaments and how to create them. I especially like this pin because it is a way for me to get my apartment in the spirit in a budget friendly way, when I do not already have an entire Christmas stock like say, my mother. My goal is to create every single one so I can have quite the diverse mini tree.
When it comes to gifting, Pinterest has suggestions galore. There are quite a few that I have on my list (discontinue reading now family members).
This particular treat can be altered to taste of course, but the sweetness of the gift is never diminished. Mason jars can easily be fashioned from leftover jam or peanut butter jars.
I find this pun absolutely adorable yet simple. Without being extravagant, this gift can be a stocking stuffer for all the ladies in your life this holiday season. And luckily, getting pampered never goes out of style.
This made me laugh immediately. Those beers are so cute! Upon discovering this pin I thought of my step-dad. An avid lover of craft beer, especially anything seasonal, I knew that this would be one of my gifts to him. I know he is going to love it. A few pipe cleaners and some googly eyes later, and you’ve got yourself a herd of reindeer.
Now to me, this one takes the cake. I couldn’t help myself, that was too easy. But honestly, I am a sucker for sweets. While I am envious of some of the flamboyant holiday toppers I see around this season, not everyone is so steady of hand. So I opt for a simple design that delivers punch. Your base of the wreath is your run of the mill cupcakes. Easy enough right? Arrange to your liking and then frost to, lets say, the extent of your ability. It doesn’t have to be intricate to get the point across. All that matters is that it is in the spirit of the season.
If these holiday suggestions don’t get you into the Christmas spirit then you are just a Scrooge. Now I know none of you are any Ebeneezer, so let me know what you think! Tell me what inspired you, any spin-offs? Let me know fellow pinners, tis the season.
