Remember how I wanted an elegant Christmas and Lukus wanted a more (how shall I say this?) colorful Christmas? Well, we met in the middle—maybe not the exact middle, but somewhere in the vicinity.
Okay, so it is absolutely skewing my direction. However, to be clear, my dream was a Chanel inspired Christmas. But as a friend put it, I am instead having a “Ralph Lauren Christmas.”
So, in the spirit of the Americana feel, I have taken on a few crafty projects (those of you who know me well, please quit laughing!). And as a gesture of my seasonal benevolence I have decided to share one with you!
First Christmas Craft: The Sophisticated Snowflake Garland, and this one is insanely simple.
What you will need:
– A stack of regular white printer paper
– Gold Chain (I picked a few yards at a hardware store- they have lots of options!)
1)Remember how you made paper snowflakes as a kid? You are going to do that now. (In case you’ve forgotten how—see Martha)
2)Thread a few through a gold chain (or silver)—this is where to take the project from childish to refined.
3)TaDa! There you go. That’s it. And don’t lie. You know you needed a super simple project in the midst of all the craziness. So you are welcome.
What kind of holiday projects are you working on?
