DIY Ornament Clusters

I’m obsessed with these ornaments from Martha Stewart’s new collaboration with The Home Depot. First of all they are shatter proof, so important if you have kids or pets (or if we’re being honest here, clumsy adults) living with you. Secondly the colors are spot on and so modern. It’s so hard to find good greens and blues like these. This wrapping idea is inspired by Martha’s series of holiday how-to videos. Each video is has great DIY ideas for holiday decorating. Martha’s instructions are clear and it’s helpful to see her create the DIY on camera. I really loved the video on making Ornament Clusters and decided to top off a few gifts using Martha’s techniques. You’ll just need a few things to get started….

Printable Cheesy Gift Wrap

by Alix Sorrell

As someone who is obsessed with cheese, I was REALLY excited to find out October 9th is National Moldy Cheese Day! Moldy or not, these wrappers are the perfect way to dress up that hunk of cheese you were planning on bringing to a dinner party or giving away as a small (and cheesy) thank you gift! You can print out the labels on Sticker Paper or regular paper. Punch out the labels with a 1.5 inch punch to seal your wrap. You’re friends will be impressed with such a professional cheese-monger presentation!

Printable Tracing Paper Candy Wraps

by Alix Sorrell

I’ve always loved the look of vintage candy wrappers. This simple printable takes inspiration from all of those pretty packaged candies and looks especially great if you have some fun colored treats to showcase. Printing on tracing paper can be a little bit tricky but it’s well worth the end result. This printed paper also makes great tissue paper!

Crepe Paper Petals Wall Hanging

by Ashley Page Norton 

I love looking at images of flower torans, which are festive garlands hung in Indian households as celebratory decorations, and decided to figure out a crepe paper version. Torans are so fun – the patterns and colors are super cheerful. There are a million ways to use this technique – you can make a wall hanging, garlands, bunting, leis, etc., and you can scale them to suit whatever space you’re decorating. They would look great as a backdrop at a party or wedding!
