Deck the Halls!

So it’s Black Friday. You’ve found the deals and hidden the presents. Now, it’s time to go all Christmas on your house and put up the tree. So put on the holiday tunes, and check out our favorite new holiday décor ideas (courtesy of Pinterest).

When I was little, I used to make these ornament balls out of Christmas cards. Mine were always sloppy-looking, with glue all over. But these classic holiday crafts will keep your kids entertained every time.


I’m usually one of those nutty moms who searches high and low for the perfect gift wrap that will match the color scheme on the tree. Not this year. (I am trying to save for an adoption, after all.) So why not go green with these cute (and cheap) alternatives?

How about repurposing some things you probably already have in your house for some fresh holiday design? Love these ideas.


Sweaters turned into stockings. Genius.


So simple. So shabby chic. So full of holiday cheer.


Or perhaps you’re looking for ways to bring African culture into your Christmas? You can find this and other African ornaments on Etsy while supporting adoption. Melkam Gena is Merry Christmas in Amharic.

Have a good weekend, and we'll see you next week!
