Simple Painted Holiday Houses DIY... 13 Dec 2017

Holiday Painted Ceramic Houses DIY...

Christmas is less than two weeks away. And, if you're like me, you still have so many things to do, gifts to get, lists to check, work to get done before you can get a little holiday relaxation in. If you're hosting for the holidays or simply want some last minute cheer to deck the halls, here's a really easy one for you!

Holiday Painted Ceramic Houses DIY...

You'll need...
- ceramic houses (large, small)
- paint pens (red, pink, light green, dark green)
- nail polish remover

Holiday Painted Ceramic Houses DIY...

We've all seen those simple ceramic houses you can get inexpensively at your local store that become instant decor. Rather than leaving them white, we're adding a dose of pattern (as we do!) to these sweet little homes.

Here's how...
1. We chose to do a dotty and stripe pattern for our houses. Draw your pattern on the house just like you would with a normal pen. (If you make any mistakes, they can easily be removed with nail polish remover!)
2. Let dry for 10 minutes and then set up wherever you need to inject some extra holiday vibes.

A Refreshing Holiday Sparkler / Oh Joy!

With holiday gatherings aplenty, I love sharing some simple and quick (yet beautiful) ideas to add to your next gathering. Today, we've partnered with Wonderful Halos to share a recipe for this Holiday Mandarin Sparkler that's delicious and festive for both kids and adults. Wonderful Halos mandarins have so much flavor so they add a unique twist to even the simplest recipes. We especially love this drink because it's so bright and colorful, but is also a healthy option with fresh fruit that provides that perfect hint of citrus and sweetness...

A Pretty Pear Sweater DIY / Oh Joy!

While we're posting gift guides a plenty right now, I also wanted to share things that you could make for a loved one this holiday season. This DIY could take a bit longer than most of our usual projects depending on how detailed you want to get.

For someone who would love a completely one-of-a-kind piece to wear, you'll want to make this stat! Here's how...

2017_09_15-Fall-Table-GIF-blog

Fall is here, and we're about to get into a season full of gatherings and holidays. When fall arrives, I am very rarely into traditional fall colors—like dark red, burnt orange, mustard yellow, and hunter green. Rather, I love seeing fall as an opportunity to get a little softer with color and mix in the peach and green from this month's Color Adventures. So, today, we're sharing a pretty fall table (with two very easy DIY's) perfect for a little gathering at home...
