I love receiving Christmas cards from all of our friends and family. I made this DIY Christmas card display as a way to hang all of our holiday cards so that we can enjoy them through the season. It also makes a great photo display as well. Scroll down to see how to make this DIY Christmas card or photo display.
DIY Christmas card or photo display
This is super easy and neutral so you can leave up all year long! We don’t have many photos displayed throughout our home so I think I’m going to print some and leave it up in our living room. I also think this would be beautiful in a nursery.
1.) Start by cutting two pieces of twine, making them the same length.
2.) Tie each piece of twine one to each end of the branch. Bring up each piece so that you make a triangle and tie at the top. This will be how you hang the branch.
3.) Next you will assemble your greenery. If using a garland, cut into 3 separate pieces. If using faux eucalyptus stems, tie a few stems together to make a longer strand of eucalyptus. You will need 3.
4.) Take a piece of twine and tie to the end of the eucalyptus strand. Tie the other end of the twine to the branch so that it dangles down. Do this with the other two stands.
5.) Use clothespins to hang your cards or photos.
That’s it! Now you can enjoy looking at all of your holiday cards all season. And when the holidays are over, use to hang some photos throughout your home!

Dried orange slices make such pretty holiday decor for garlands and ornaments. Not only is it very simplistic, but you can use to decorate past the holidays through the winter months. Scroll down to learn how to dry orange slices and make these dried orange slice ornaments.
How to dry orange slices
It’s super easy to dry orange slices. I also do grapefruits too because I just love the color!
Start by preheating your oven to 200 degrees F.
Slice your oranges and grapefruits about 1/4 inch thick.
Line a baking sheet with parchment and place the citruses on the parchment paper.
Bake in the oven for about 5-6 hours, flipping regularly so that each side is dried evenly.
How to make dried orange slice ornaments
You will need:
a needle with a large eye
Start by threading some or the twine through the eye of the needle.
With the point end of your needle, pierce the cranberry and pull it through so that it is on the twine.
Repeat with the orange slices and cranberries in whatever pattern you choose.
Having a beautifully set table just makes a meal that much more special. And what meal is more special than Thanksgiving? I’m showing you how I made this simple Thanksgiving place setting for your guests. It’s mostly free, and you can put it together very easily, even if you’re someone who isn’t super crafty.
I like going with a neutral, warm color palette with mostly whites, tans, oranges, and browns. Add some fresh greenery down the middle of the table and a few candles throughout to add a glow.

Simple Thanksgiving Place Setting Idea
You will need:
Leaves (1 for each guest or place setting)
Gold push pins
Paper or cardstock
Start by writing each of your guests names on a separate piece of paper or cardstock.
Take each name and use a push pin to push through the leaf.
Gather your linens in the middle and tie with a piece of twine. Place on top of each dish and place each leaf on top.
Are you ready for an easy fall DIY? Today I’m showing you how I upcycled these pumpkins using hot glue and paint to make a cozy fall tablescape. Scroll down to see how I made these DIY hot glue painted pumpkins. And for more pumpkin inspiration, check out my friend’s posts below because we’ve got a pumpkin roundup! The first leaf fell off the tree outside and Rick made fun of me because I started transforming our home into all things fall. This past weekend, I lit my fall candles, made a bundt cake and switched up our dining room decor for a fall tablescape. I found these faux pumpkins I had from last year. I wanted a little more of a muted neutral palette so decided to give them an upgrade with glue and paint. Here’s what I did.
DIY hot glue painted pumpkins
You will need:
split wooden beads
Using hot glue, I made a few little designs. I had some leftover split wooden beads from my DIY beaded wreath and added those as well. I let them dry completely before painting. Then I painted them using acrylic paint. I did a total of 3 coats, making sure to get in all the nooks and crannies and allowing them to fully dry between each coat.
Look what a little glue and paint can do!!!
I put together this fall tablescape using some decor that I had laying around my house.
