Classic Holiday Decorating Ideas

#HolidayDecor from

Usually I’m all about holiday crafting but this year with so many different things going on, home renovations/new baby/sister moving to Germany, I’ve had a hard time getting in the mood. Thankfully, yesterday it snowed! After school work and a quick trip to the grocery store (before the snow), not to mention lots of pressure from the kids, we started working on a couple of holiday d├ęcor projects. Cranberries make for a classic holiday garland and coffee filters can quickly be transformed into pom poms with little fuss!

Esther was in charge of the cranberries and I realized quickly I need to get a needle in her hand more often. Baby girl did NOT know how to hold it or use it but after 30 minutes she got much more comfortable with it.

I have tried the fold and separate method for making pom poms numerous times and it NEVER looks as good as it does on Pinterest! In fact I usually end up ripping them. So instead I folded the coffee filter in half and then started threading them onto baker’s twine. To make the full pom pom shown I actually tied two together.

It’s not much in the way of holiday crafting but it’s definitely gotten me in the mood!
