DIY Holiday Highlights #5 through Christmas Day!

DIY Holiday Highlights #5 runs until Christmas Day. Looking for last minute ideas and inspiration? Check out the links. Have a holiday DIY related project or decor? Link up! :)

As you know, I've been busy painting floors and faucets in the bathroom, so I'm a little (okay ALOT) behind when it comes to Christmas DIY projects.

I know most of you have seen these next pictures but since my new table and living room have since been covered with junk while finishing up DIY projects, I want to see it again without the clutter. Motivation to get it some things done this week. And if that's not motivation enough, I'm thrilled to participate in The Nester's Christmas Tour of Homes & Hooked on Holiday Home Tours! I don't have my home completely ready yet but I'm inspired to get busy!

All of the motivation and inspiration I need to make the time to put Christmas a the top of my priority list!

And a fun site: focuses on economic but beautiful and unique holiday stationery choices. With Christmas right around the corner, our focus at the moment is on our online Santa letters (both to and from Santa), which can be created online in real time and shared with friends and family members. (Read more about it here.)

  1. You must use the button above (or html code on left side bar) and link to this post to share the linky love.
  2. Add your permalink (not your blog url, but your holiday project post url which is the web address that goes directly to your holiday project blog post, not your blog address). Feel free to link a Past Post, just invite your readers in a current post with a quick note.
  3. Or email your link to and I will add it for you.

Add the link back to The DIY Show Off to your post today with a quick note to your readers about the party and try again! I love when everyone participates and readers check out everyone's links, but I think the return favor of linking back is the nice thing to do so everyone plays fair and enjoys all of the projects and links. Links not related to DIY holiday projects or holiday decor for inspiration will be deleted.

Hi Roeshel,
I enjoyed the slideshow you put together! Your table looked so festive and perfect for a fun party. I especially like how you put the ornaments on the candle stands, and the creative way you folded the napkins. Also thank you for including my tutorial in these weeks’ selections. I appreciate it. HO, HO, HO

Have a wonderful evening!

HO! HO! HO! to Roe, Roe, Roe! :) Not calling you one, just saying hey! Are you laughing yet? Finally got my act together and did some holiday decorating. I can finally join the party!


Leanne said...

Roeshel, Your tree and centerpiece are beautiful. I can't wait to see the rest of your decor. I'm going thrifty this year and trying just to use what I already have. You don't know how hard it is for me not to go shopping for decorations, but I'm resisting. Thanks for hosting such great parties.
