Spray-painted white & gold pinecones, DIY, Christmas tree, Pinterest


Somehow Christmas snuck up on me this year. Well, I should rephrase that.

The time when I should have started my DIY Christmas tree ornaments snuck up on me … and then also passed!

Sure, my friend and I started discussing our Christmas tree themes back in July. Yet my build started the weekend before Thanksgiving. Not the ideal conditions for prime crafting.

Luckily I was able to save Christmas (you’re welcome) by building on last year’s Reduce, Reuse, Resparkle theme instead of starting over completely.  

The additions? Burlap leaves with white and gold pinecones. Simple, yet devastatingly gorgeous. Or devastatingly simplistic. I haven’t decided.

As for next year’s theme, our lesson is to start planning discussions in January with actual crafting commencing in July.

Anyone up for a Fourth of July Christmas Crafting Party?

Hope so. Save the dates are going out next week.
