Christmas Holiday Inspiration - Marshmallows, free printable gift tags & more

I used to have a weekly feature of home ideas I discovered as I surfed the net. recipes, interior decor, gifts etc but one day this weekly event seemed to disappear and I am still at a loss why. However, there has never been a more appropriate time to re-introduce it and share some recently discovered Christmas inspiration.

Starting with these cute free printable gift tags from Creature Comforts...

Visit Creature Comforts for the correct size download. Creature Comforts also has a shop where she sells delightful and quirky animal prints, you can visit her store here.

Above: A newly discovered food & lifestyle photography blog  'Mowielicious'. These Raspberry swirl marshmallows looked so divine and instructions so simple, I had to share... You can find the recipe and instructions here.

Above: I love this idea, a cup garland, you could use white cups and draw stars or reindeer with a fine black pen, or simply leave them plain. For the tutorial with step by step images, please visit Hey Gorgeous Events

And ending with some beautiful Christmas inspired Pinterest images...
I like the simple decor of this setting
Back to nature
A unique wooden tree
love these snowflakes made from craft sticks. They would also look great hanging from a mantelpiece. For tutorial visit BHG.

  1. I like the wooden tree idea. Very creative and interesting. I think I am going to create something like a shell tree using the shells collected from the bay near my house : ). Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. The wooden tree is great, you can also use drift wood and create one on a wall, here is a link to a previous post which shows some ideas. You could then maybe hot glue shells to the driftwood.

    Thank you for taking time to comment :)

  3. Love that driftwood tree. Fabulous. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

    1. Isn't it great Marty, I have seen a few ideas this year with driftwood, there are so many clever people around.

      Lee :)
