Make: Holiday Cheer

I haven’t had much time for Christmas decorating so far, but now that school’s over for the quarter, I’m ready to make up for lost time. My goal was to create something┬ásimple for the upstairs window using icicles. My icicle tree is just that: simple and festive. I love it!

Of course our mini-tree is decorated to the 9s. To the 10s, even! We’ve dubbed 2014 the year of blacklight Christmas.

Then I was on a roll. I cut a choice branch from a nearby evergreen and made us a simple wreath-like situation for the front door. Inviting, yes?

Before long it was time to get started on Christmas cards! I couldn’t find any I loved, so I decided to make my very own.
