The Inspired Room

Since we are thisclose to Thanksgiving, it is time to start thinking about holiday decorating.  I know I am planning to start this weekend.  I love pulling out my Christmas decorations that I have collected over the years.  When I travel I purchase ornaments as keepsakes and I enjoy the memories those bring too.  Do you get into the holiday spirit by decorating?? Here are some great ideas I found that are inspiring me this year.

Holiday Card Display

Do this one yourself, here’s the how to.

If you are looking for holiday cards to send I found this great Etsy shop I am planning to order mine from Anna!

Ornament Ideas

Love the idea for making strips out of a wedding invite or birth announcement and filling clear class ball with it…pretty and memorable.

Christy Robbins

This is a cute idea for homemade ornaments using cookie cutters, old photos and Christmas paper. Martha shows us how here.

Junk Garden Girl

This looks a little more complicated but what a creative way to use acorns and some sparkle to make a great ornament.


I also love this garland idea.  You could also use green, gold, or red ribbon and/or spray paint the pine cones in holiday colors.

Country Home

Check out these great DIY ornaments projects from Centsational Girl.


I love this monogram idea! I think I am going to copy this for my place, but I am going to use a metallic gold letter instead.


This is a little busy for my taste but there is something so much fun about this creative wreath.


Simple and Classic.


We Heart It

Cupcakes and Cashmere

And if you have little one’s I loved this idea for the big countdown.

Happy decorating!

    Love the glass ornament with birth announcement strips idea! Now we just have to see if I am crafty enough to pull it off. 🙂
