Christmas trees are one of the most beautiful and symbolic centerpieces of the holiday season, but after Christmas, they tend to get left to gather dust in attics and storage rooms.

In this post, we provide a few ideas and design inspirations that will help you make your Christmas tree a part of your year-round décor. (more…)

Living in Texas, Cinco de Mayo does not go unnoticed. My daughter is learning about it in school and piñatas are for sale on the end caps at the grocery store — it only makes sense that we would celebrate the holiday at home as well.
At first I thought I would recreate my Feliz Navidad tree, but how could I improve upon cactus, mini piñatas and souvenir skirts? I know, I needed my friend Crafty Chica and a papel picado banner.
Using Crafty Chica paper, baker’s twine, a Big Shot, hole reinforcer stickers, Avery Elle Papel Picado goodies and embossing supplies, I whipped up a banner. It was mini and just right for a Winter White Potted Pine Tree.
I was pleased as punch with how my banner looked on the tree!
My cactus and mini piñatas came back out to play for Cinco de Mayo. I also updated with tons of colorful faux flowers to help welcome spring.
Last, but not least, I had to hang a real papel picado banner to reflect the mini version I made for my Cinco de Mayo tree. I can’t wait to turn this baby on come May 5th and sip a few margaritas under the glow of my fabulously decorated tree!

We’ll show you how some of our favorite bloggers used chalkboard paint to create simple craft projects that are as practical as they are pretty. (more…)

I have decorated my Some Like It Hot Tree to look like a Vegas Showgirl, a Sweetheart Tree, and this month it is a giant kitschy ode to Easter. I kinda want to leave this one up all year. Easter is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for. Why? Because out of all my vintage holiday collectibles, the Easter ones might be the most tacky. I use the word tacky in the most endearing of ways. I mean it in a Dolly Parton circa 1979 kind of way, which is a total compliment.
