Less than two weeks until Christmas! Are you all feeling prepared? I think I am, but I have a feeling there is something I've overlooked. After deciding to give our bathroom a full reno last week (as I didn't want to have that to-do list hanging over my head while I'm off for the holidays), I'm a little late getting into the mood of the festive season. So I thought I'd take a look for some fun DIYs that I could play with in the final run-up to the big day.
Planning to make a batch of cupcakes for Christmas, but not sure how to make them look festive? These cupcake liner Christmas tree toppers look wonderful.
I always have a hard time doing something special for the table; it's usually just a few festive placemats and candles. This balloon ornament centrepiece looks like an easy, quick but quirky alternative.
I've wanted to make my own marshmallows for many years, but have just never gotten around to it. Maybe the thought of adding mint flavoured ones to my special (spiked) Christmas hot chocolate will encourage me to make them.
Another balloon themed decorations, this time for the presents. Much more fun than a simple gift tag. And as I live in a flat with minimal storage, I love the idea of decorations that you don't have to store for next year.
Such a simple but effective DIY. All you need is some glittery duck tape!
I always whip up a batch of gingerbread biscuits every year, but they are always decorated in a traditional way. These mudcloth patterned cookies look both festive and modern.
Maybe not something I'll get around to creating before Christmas, but aren't these bauble cushions amazing?
Another festive way to perk up your Christmas cupcakes. Honeycomb paper works so well for the holidays, and these bauble toppers are adorable.
Like something a little more minimal for Christmas. Try out this beautiful minimalist wooden tree by Fall for DIY
Almond flavours always remind me of the festive season. These almond pinecones make for wonderful decorations that you can eat after the festivities are over (or during).
