MY Christmas Ideas Collection

Is it ever too early to think of Christmas? I love Christmas but not in July! At the same time, I often buy Christmas stuff at yard sales or thrift shops through out the year because they are bargains and cost only pennies in comparison to store prices which makes this penny-pincher happy! So no, it is never too early to think of Christmas!

I'm posting a few of my favorite and easy-to-do Christmas crafts and ideas in one post in plenty of time for you to collect and use in your home - after all, Christmas is only weeks away!

Simple, no work ideas.
Save old favorite Christmas cards and string them up somewhere.
Wrap sheet music around clear glass vases and tie with raffia - so cool-looking!
Fold sheet music into a fan and using two sheets per flower, tie string around center and a dot of glue where the two sheets come together.
Using hydrangeas as Christmas deco is lovely as well.
Top picture: hydrangeas are tucked in a wire frame that sits in a flower pot.
String it with lights first!
Bottom: these are the same but I used dried-on-the-shrub hydrangeas instead.
Last but not least is making your own banner!
They're simple, fun but time consuming to make and the possibilites are endless!
