It’s that time of year again - welcome to Festive Friday!
I’m starting a week early because I’ve added a new theme this year, Ornaments and Decor, and we’re going to start there. In the coming weeks I’ll also share Gifts for Him, Gifts for Her, Gifts for Kids, and Last-Minute Gifts. If you’d like to take a look at last year’s collections you can click here. Let’s get to it!

Easy, over-sized decor is perfect for those of use who want to make a holiday statement without losing our minds, and these cute holly sticks from Oh Happy Day fit the bill.
I know the red holiday trucks are EVERYWHERE right now, but I still love every single one of them. This 3D paper version from Caluya Design actually looks pretty easy to assemble.
I don’t know what to say about these little Santas from Tatertots and Jello except awwww!
I’ve talked about the scrap twine that My Poppet makes before, and I love what she did with it here.
Not everyone lives where there are evergreen trees, and I love the idea of celebrating with what’s around you. Sew What Alicia shows us that even a cactus can have holiday spirit.
What I like about this wreath from Orange Bettie is that it looks like someone took a cute drawing and made it 3D.
I’ve been saying for YEARS that I’m going to try needle felting, but I keep chickening out. I think I’m intimidated by some of the complex projects I’ve seen. It looks like Think Crafts has a perfect starter project for me.
Fellow Fellow has shared this trees as gift toppers, but they’d make equally lovely ornaments.
I always enjoy a project that lets you use lots of pretty fabrics together, and this ornament from Super Mom No Cape is a perfect way to do that.
Nothing says Christmas like a gingerbread house, but this pretzel log version from Vikalinka is extra special. She has a genius (and tasty) method to avoid having to use all that royal icing to hold everything together.
I really like the festive, but non-traditional, color palette used on these printable ornaments from SamOsborneStore.
The only thing more fun than counting down to Christmas is making a method to do so. SugarHouseShop is here to get you started.
And a few extra DIY ideas from right here at Crafty Staci:
