Happy Friday, friends! I’ve still got several projects/crafts up my sleeve for Christmas. I wanted to share with you my Christmas decorating inspiration.

I’ve got a whole Pinterest board dedicated to my very favorite designer, Emily Henderson. I’m loving this stencil paint on a vintage map that Emily did for the HGTV Holiday Special. In fact, I’ve ordered a map and I’m got serious plans for a project inspired by this.

I really, really want to make this wreath from Pickles made out of felted balls. Do you think I could get a similiar look with pom pom balls? I looked at Hobby Lobby and their colors were weird/ugly. I love the modern colors of this wreath. Super cute, huh? (heh, so many balls…)

I’m considering a different take on this snowman wreath (via Pinterest). I’m loving the greenery around the snowman. This would be fun outside.

How pretty is this advent calendar from Oh Happy Day? I think there’s so much you could do with these print outs!

The playfulness of this print is fantastic! So festive and cute! I’m really wanting to paint something inspired by this on a huge canvas.

What has inspired you for your holiday decorations? I’d love to see!

You can click through all the images to be taken to the sources. Also, you can follow my holiday themed Pinterest board here.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Hi! I live in a small two bedroom home in Austin, Texas. I believe in vintage, re-purposing, recycling, and making my home comfortable for us and everyone that visits. After grad school, I developed a love for design and giving old furniture a new life. Hope I can take you all along on my journey to rid my house of the "college days" furniture (or at least re-purpose it)! Welcome, and I hope you stay a while!
