DIY Christmas Decor for GROWNUPS!

I recently received an email from Minted asking to do a review on their blog site, Julep.  I was happy to help, because I fell in love with all the beautiful, gorgeous ideas they post!  I love to diy at home.  This site is going to help me with some Christmas decor and an upcoming (ahem, drum roll....) baby arrival.  (This is my subtle announcement that I'm having my second little cherub in March.)

I'm wanted to share some of my favorite finds on Julep with you today.
First up, let's decorate!  I'm a HUGE sucker for garland and bunting.  It's so versatile.  Hang it on a tree, on a mantel, over a window, strung across a playroom...endless.  These are all super easy to make.  I wouldn't show you something I couldn't do...
Cozy Pom Pom Garland

Felt Triangle Garland

Easy Knotted Garland

Easy Ball Garland

Ok, now what about DIY gifts?  Do you make your family, friends, co-workers gifts?  I love getting homemade things.  I think it shows someone how much you truly care for them to take the time to make something.  Here are some fun and again, EASY gift ideas I found on Julep.

Embroidered Leather Cuff

Easy & Easier DIY Magnets

DIY Star Combs

Fairy Twig Wands
And just for fun a few others for Christmas...

DIY Winter Themed Guest Book

Scratch Off Activity Advent

Watercolor Gift Wrap
Ok, really I could probably go on and on, but you really just need to search their blog yourself!  Such fun stuff to do (and easy!).  I'm typing as fast as I can because I really want to get started on my garland!


One more thing.  Julep is hosted by Minted.com.  Have you ever heard of them?  I have, but have yet to use them.  This year we are doing the photo collage Christmas card thing, and Minted is where I'm ordering from.  They have SO MANY CHOICES!  It is really hard for me to choose.  Help me out!  Which do you like best?







There you have it...my DIY Christmas has started.  Soon to come will be fun crafts I'm doing with the kids at school!
