Holiday Decorating Ideas

We are excited to share with you today some simple Holiday decorations that we created for a Handmade Holiday Event.

Pink Christmas shared @cakefor2.comThese ideas incorporate a little bit of shabby chic and a vintage Christmas style.  Our inspiration started with the pink flower on the wreath we picked up at Michaels.  And we just ran with it.  Please feel welcome to incorporate these ideas with whatever color scheme you have going for your Holiday decorating.


Glitter ball wreath shared (Tip! for hot glueing foam)GLITTER BALL WREATH

  We started with a white foam wreath and adhered these sparkly glitter balls to.  Wanna know a little SECRET?  Have you ever heard of Foam hot glue sticks?   They work amazing and without melting the foam!  They are compatible with a low-temp glue gun.  Keep in mind, the foam glue sticks are a little different than just a regular low- temp glue stick, they are specific for FOAM.

We adore the painted banner plaque, from The Wood Connection, as the centerpiece.  Adding a vintage card with a little glitter really added character too!
