Easy Christmas Planters - Lantern Planter Floral Arrangement - Outdoor Decorating
With a silver & gold color scheme, these neutral planters will look great anywhere. The addition of a large lantern (and flame-less timer candle) warms the look. Artificial pine garland & pine floral were used rather than real so they can be reused year after year! More info Artificial pine garlands can be purchased most anywhere (Walmart, Home Depot, Target, Menards, Ect.) Large Lantern - Walmart (about $12.95) White & Green Leaf Floral 7 stems together - Walmart (about $5) - In Floral Section of Store (by crafts) Gold & Silver Shatterproof Ornaments - Walmart (about $5) You can get realistic pine floral from craft stores like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Joann Fabrics, etc. Sometimes it is cheaper to buy a garland and cut it up rather than buy individual pine floral picks. Flame-less Timer Candles & String Lights can be purchased most places as well (Walmart, Target, Menards, Etc.) A planter this size used a 35 light strand (from Menards) The planter was originally from Walmart (4 years ago).

Halloween Shirt DIY - Easy Spooky Shadowy Design! - Halloween Crafts
In this video I will show you how to create a unique Halloween shirt! Use the basic idea of this video to create your own fun designs! Use other spooky things like plastic spiders or plastic snakes.

Spray paint from above to ensure you don't fill in the blank spaces with paint. Don't worry if some of the items that are further from the surface don't show - it gives your shirt a unique, atmospheric look! Enjoy! :) The bats were from the dollar store.

Here is a quick video showing how to light a Christmas tree! Light amount is a preference, so if you like more subtle lighting, weave the lights closer to the edge to use less.

Christmas Mantel Garland - How To Decorate Your Mantel For Christmas
With a gold & smokey blue color scheme, this mantel garland coordinates nicely with the "Victorian Christmas Tree." To continue with the elegant theme, an antique mantel clock, taper candle holders, glass jars, & a kerosene lamp decorate the mantel. Keeping these decorations season-neutral lets the garland shine! I used thrift-store pine garlands wrapped together for the base garland. This makes a nice inexpensive base to tuck floral picks in. I also used some of the same ribbon you saw in the "Victorian Christmas Tree" video on the mantel (since they are in the same room).

Smokey blue, gold, and cream colored ribbon give this tree an old-fashioned Victorian color scheme. Ornaments in silver, gold, light blue, and off-white continue this color scheme while warm ivory candle lights add to the vintage feel. Two strands of 50 candle lights were used on this 7.5 ft tree. With only 100 candle lights illuminating the branches, this tree's lights are subtle & not overpowering, like the soft color scheme.

Christmas Day Scented Centerpiece - Orange Pomanders - Christmas Decorating
Scented with fresh pine, orange, cinnamon, & cloves, this fragrant centerpiece will fill the room with a wonderfully nostalgic Christmas fragrance. With few supplies, this arrangement is very easy to make & works well for both rustic and elegant interiors (just choose a container that fits your style)! Because this uses fresh items & is not in water - make close to Christmas. Orange pomanders can start to mold after a few days - use orris root powder or cinnamon to slow down this process. - The fresher the pine, the more fragrant & the longer it will last without water. - Keep container away from heat sources to make it last longer. - Keep away from candles! Pine is extremely flammable - especially dry pine. If you want the look of candles on your table, use flame-less LED instead.

Easy Melt & Pour Soap - Handmade Gift Ideas - How To Make Soap - Wildflower Woods
In this video I will show you how to make "Wildflower Woods" scented melt & pour soap. The fragrance oils and soap mold is from https://www.bulkapothecary.com . The soap base is from Hobby Lobby. If the mixing bowl is getting hot, you may want to protect your hands. Also to note - BE CAREFUL - melted soap is very hot! Even though we make a particular kind of soap in this video, you can use it as a guide for making other melt and pour soaps using other soap bases/fragrances/molds (just double check on the container - heat times may vary slightly). We use cinnamon for texture because it adds a soft exfoliate to the soap and adds a nice visual texture as well. I discourage the use of oatmeal because (in my opinion) it makes the soap too sharp (can feel like scrubbing with tree bark). If you choose to use other fragrance oils, make sure they are skin safe - not all fragrance oils are. Soap bars make great gifts for Christmas, weddings, birthdays, and other occasions!

Vintage Postcard Christmas Tree - Old Fashioned Christmas - Unique Tree Idea
There is no shortage of vintage Christmas postcards, and with their beautiful imagery, why not display them for everyone to enjoy! Most postcards used on this tree are from 1914 and earlier, making them over 100 years old! Antique indented ornaments make the perfect pairing with the old fashioned Christmas imagery of the postcards. Soft green ornaments fill in the tree and give the tree a balanced look while soft gold tinsel (thin) garland adds an antique look that is reminiscent of embellished ornaments of the past. This tree's look is kept simple to let the postcards and vintage ornaments shine. Other info: Antique postcards can be found at most antique shops. Prices range anywhere from 25 cents each to $6 each. Vintage indented ornaments can also be found at antique shops for about $1 - $6 each. The gold tinsel garland/string was purchased at Hobby Lobby - it is not the traditional garland, and can be found with ribbon rather than tree decorations. The tree is a prelit LED (warm white) artificial tree from Walmart.
