The holiday season is a time of joy, celebration, and gathering with loved ones. This year, fill your home with festive decorations, comforting scents, and all the holiday cheer with these merry and bright DIY activities. The best part? They’re something you can do for your guests or enjoy right alongside them!
Garland Glamour and Candied Oranges
Capture the spirit of the holidays with a splash of vibrant color and a hint of sweetness. Enhance your traditional garlands or greenery by adorning them with fragrant candied oranges. The process is easy: slice oranges, coat them in sugar, and bake until they transform into glossy treats. These candied oranges will not only add a burst of color to your decorations but also infuse the air with a delightful citrusy fragrance. Your new tablescape will match perfectly with a vintage-style Linear Striped Candy Cane washable rug.
Get Crafty for Your Furry Friends
Show some love to your beloved reindeer—er, pets—by getting crafty with your knitting skills. Knit a cozy scarf, a festive sweater, or a snug hat for your furry best friends. These handmade tokens will not only keep them warm but also make them look adorable for those Instagram-worthy snapshots. Need a classic holiday pattern for your backdrop? We suggest a cozy design like our Buffalo Plaid Blackwatch washable rug.
Budget-Friendly Baked Gifts for Guests
Treat family and friends to delicious homemade baked goods. Whip up a variety of treats, from classic cookies to frosted pastries. Not only are these low-cost gifts a thoughtful gesture, but they also offer the perfect opportunity for family bonding in the kitchen.
Bonus tip: When your doorbell rings and guests arrive, give them a holly jolly greeting with a washable Welcome Holly Doormat that’s easy to clean.
Scents of the Season: Cinnamon and Apple Cider
Did you know our sense of smell is deeply connected to our memories? Create a comforting feeling of nostalgia in your home by simmering cinnamon sticks or apple cider on the stove. The soothing scents will evoke cherished holiday moments and fill the air with warm aroma. Wanna go the extra mile? A well-placed Cambria Ruby washable runner will really set the mood in your kitchen with its red and blood orange hues.
