This girl is jumping for Christmas JOY… and is ready to bring on the rest of the festive season! Because a new stencil collection has been officially launched, and I got my first two projects in! With one already on the blog…

DIY Christmas Village with 2x4s and stencils

I’ve wanted to make some kind of wooden Christmas Village for years… and this year I finally made it happen! With a super fun and easy way to detail the houses too!  Christmas Village is one of the new stencils designed so you can stencil a village, or decorate actual wood scraps! I had so much fun with this one, I want to make more!

To view all 10 new stencils, check out the top of the store HERE. The newer releases stay up on top all season long so they are easy to find!

Goodness it’s been too long. I start feeling alive again when the creativity fires up. Can’t wait share how the trees were made, which will be next week!

So let’s get to this week’s fab features from last week’s party… sure to also help you get an upcycle jump towards making your own Christmas decor…

New Upcycle Ideas 653 features:

scrap fabric Christmas trees

Fabric fringe Christmas trees


Fabric fringe cone Christmas trees by Pillar Box Blue

Back in my ski days, one of my fav sights was viewing all the evergreen trees super heavy with snow. That’s exactly what these fabric fringe Christmas trees remind me of! I just adore the movement of the fringe and the way the fabric twists its own perfectly imperfect way. And this tutorial is way easier to make than it looks. You have these supplies! Guaranteed.

primitive brown cinnamon pumpkin place cards

Primitive pumpkins with rustic place cards


DIY primitive pumpkin place cards by DIY Beautify

I love a great rustic pumpkin anyway, and as luck would have it, this fabulous tutorial shares how to achieve that decadent texture on pumpkins, but it would work on anything! But boy is this tone and texture perfection for a natural fall tablescape, don’t you think? 

rusty bell garland

Rusty jingle bell garland


DIY rusty jingle bells garland by Homeroad

And here’s how that decadent texture looks on bells if you want to age them up! Just goes to prove, this technique works on most any surface. That ultimately turned into a rusty bell garland. How adorable!

doily flannel shirt

Doily enhanced flannel shirts


Doily flannel shirt by Fresh Vintage By Lisa S

Flannel shirts are a fall given, however here’s how you can update yours by adding a decadent doily to fancy it up! This tutorial shares a few different doilies and examples so you can visualize different looks! I love the juxtaposition of casual and fancy!

burlap cornucopia

Tomato cage cornucopia


DIY tomato cage cornucopia by Homeward Found Decor

This stunning cornucopia has a secret… it’s made from a tomato cage, paper bag and burlap with plenty of twine… and it’s a decadent piece that deserves to be on a professional movie set! This tutorial is a must-peek.
