No time to shop? Make it yourself!
With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, sometimes decor takes a back seat to friends, family, gifts, and get-togethers. If you can carve out a few minutes for some last minute DIYs to make your space a cozy Christmas haven, these Do-It-Yourself bloggers have all the ideas to inspire you.
Between her ability to make normal everyday items into art and her ease at showing others how to do the same. Vancouver, BC blogger Rita is for certain one to follow. We love her pine and cranberry floating candle, the modern take on DIY wrapping paper, and her simple winter wreath that can be used all throughout winter.
