we heart easy decorating.

9 Dec

Christmas is coming and in my apartment we don’t have a real tree or a fake tree or actually anything amounting to christmas decorations (although we do have some halloween decorations still up if that counts for anything). That’s why I love this post from ReadyMade (a cool DIY magazine/website (for people who live in Seattle, they often give out free subscriptions at Bumbershoot)) with low-cost and low-commitment (for people who might be moving around a lot) ways to decorate.

1. I love the Post-it Christmas tree! Luckily I get to go to home to a real one this year, but you never know, maybe I’ll need one next year.

2. This sweet modern wreath is made from the pages of an old book, but I don’t see why you couldn’t just use newspaper or old wrapping paper for a more colorful look. Tutorial from Living with Lindsay.

3. I love that these hanging decorations are holiday-neutral. Christmas, Hanukkah, Valentines day, whatever. The how-to says to use card stock and grommets, but I would opt for simple colored printer-paper and staples! Tutorial from Curbly.

More ideas from ReadyMade here.

P.S. Did you notice the snow falling on the blog? It’s a wordpress feature until January 4th. Happy holidays!
