Holiday DIY project
The holidays are always an ideal time to start working on a few DIY projects. It's usually a great way to save some money but, for me, it's more importantly the perfect excuse to put some time aside to get creative. This is a very, very simple DIY project that will help bring on the holiday spirit. It's just about painting a few pine cones with a soft tone of gold and stacking them in a glass jar. I added a slate label secured with rustic rope. This decor item is ideal to brighten a kitchen counter (that's where mine is right now!) but also looks beautiful atop a mantel, a shelf or on a side table in a guest's room.
There's so much room to get creative: you can fill a similar jar or glass vase with small Christmas ornaments, candy canes or homemade gingerbread and add them as a centerpiece on a table as well. It's a simple concept but goes a long way to start preparing your home for the holidays.
