Hello friends and welcome back for another post in my Pin Away Wednesdays series! With Thanksgiving just over a week away and the holiday season beginning, I thought it would be the perfect time to share some highlights from my Christmas Crafts and Holiday DIYS Pinterest board. There are so many amazing pins that it was hard to narrow them down for this post, but here’s a few favorites:
Dried Orange Slices Garland~Red Ted Art
Ever since I was a little girl and sold oranges during the holidays as a fundraiser for cheerleading, I have thought of them as more of a Christmas than summer fruit. We always had bowls of fresh oranges around our home for the holidays and I loved snacking on them. Now that I am older I use fragrant, fresh oranges in my fall and holiday decorating, I also love natural and colonial style Christmas decorations like pretty dried orange slices garlands and cloved orange pomanders. To see how I decorate with them for the holidays, you can check out my Christmas Home Tour from last year.

Vintage French Christmas Postcards Free Printable ~The Graphics Fairy
Nothing creates a cozy holiday atmosphere quite like candles. I love the idea of dressing up a plain candle with a vintage graphic.
A pretty DIY candle ring adds a holiday charm to ordinary taper candles for the holidays.
This DIY Advent Teacup Candle Wreath by Miss Mustard Seed is just gorgeous!
The Graphics Fairy can make all of our Christmas crafting wishes come true with all of the beautiful free images to choose from! Last year I shared how I made some charming DIY Victorian Style Christmas Ornaments using the sweetest vintage images.
As a music teacher and vintage lover, I am in LOVE with these cute diy Sheet Music Ornaments, which also incorporate images from The Graphics Fairy. I may actually make some of these ornaments this coming weekend!
I am always picking up little picture frames on my junkin’ adventures, often for less than a dollar. I have a few in my craft stash so I plan to make some ornaments using images from the Graphics Fairy, old Christmas cards, or wrapping paper scraps I have saved. I also have plenty of old buttons, jewelry pieces and ribbons for embellishments.
There are so many cute ideas on Pinterest for DIY Christmas Wooden Spool Ornaments.
I always have a fragrant holiday stovetop simmer when family and friends visit for the holidays and they always comment on how wonderful our house smells. This year I think I will make up some of these little gift bags to give as gifts.

Recently I shared my Easy Christmas Jar Cloche using Epsom Salts as snow and some cute thrifted ornaments and bottle brush trees as the focal points.

Nordic gnomes are still all the rage and they are so easy to make! A couple of years ago I shared how I made some Easy as Magic DIY Nordic Christmas Gnomes using wooden spools and it has been a wildly popular post. I have pinned many more DIY gnome ideas to my Christmas Crafts and DIY Holiday Ideas Pinterest board that I would love to try out this year.

How to Make a Live Wreath~Ella Claire Inspired
I actually don’t pin wreath ideas to my Christmas Crafts and Holiday DIYs Pinterest board because I have specific Wreath Ideas Pinterest board, but I thought I would include this beautiful wreath for good measure. For next week’s Pin Away Wednesdays post I will be sharing Christmas themed door decor highlights from my wreaths board. It is going to be a beautiful post!
