I can’t wait to decorate my home for the holidays! I know that this time of year is as well as the holidays are, but it’s never too early to get ready for the fun season ahead! Today I’m sharing a set of sweet ideas that are a bit more personalized than the traditional ones. Get ready for what I have planned for the week…

Since most of these projects are created while the family is waiting for gifts, I decided to make a quick trip to the grocery store to stock up on holiday essentials. Here’s what I had to have …

1. Feeling Criminally Purse!

I’m a big believer in decorating with fun and positive reinforcement, so this DIY holiday wreath would be a great addition to the front door or to a holiday mantle or shelves. This one is a super easy project, and you can make it in under an hour!

2. A Cute Purse!

My favorite, this holiday season is all about giving each guest a cozy, warm and sweet getaway from the busy holiday core. This DIY white wreath is perfect for a play room or even in the bedroom or bathroom!

3. A Vaseful of Life!

Use some of that spring watercolor paint to transform a simple glass vase into a bold, seasonal piece of decor. This color is perfect for the bathroom, kitchen or even inside the bedroom.

4. A Candles Fire Skirt!

Gather some beautiful candles – some of course – and dress them up for the holidays! This is a fun project to do during the holidays or any time of year!

5. A Christmas Tree Made of Books!

Yes, you can even make a Christmas tree out of books! Remember, you’re either going to paint or find some old books you don’t want to get rid of just yet and want to keep as a keepsake for the house!

6. A Cute Purse!

Jazz up the mantle or dress up the side tables with a bout of holiday cheer. You don’t have to buy or make red candles, but you can use these pieces to dress up the mantle or banister!

7. Dress the bathroom.

Give the bathroom a holiday makeover, with some red and green towels, napkins and maybe even some pretty colored towels on the bathroom floor!

8. Enliven the dining room

Hot pinks and greens always go well together, and they’re the perfect choice for a holiday decor scheme. This new addition to the dining room adds freshness and holiday cheer!

9. Romantic dinners in the dining room

If you’re lucky enough to have a red Christmas tree or other festive decor pieces around the house, make sure to sprinkle the celebration of the season around the family dinner table.

10. A holiday wreath

Another decor element typical to the season, a welcome wreath filled with red berries and pinecones! It’ll be everyone’s favorite plus you’ll have a major case of Christmas style throughout the house!
