We might be heading towards the middle of December, but that’s still half a month to get your inner Martha Stewart on (minus the insider trading, of course) if you haven’t done so already. Here are some of my favorite DIYS and ideas for adding holiday cheer to your home from all around the wonderful world we call the web. And if you are not religious or Christian, don’t despair. I am not either but I still like to think of the holiday season as a general time to cozy up inside with loved ones, who may or may not celebrate Christmas themselves, and get festive. Enjoy!

001: decorating small spaces for christmas
002: small changes to make your home that much more festive this winter
003: kid friendly unique diy projects for tree trimming
004: two minimalist approachs to decorating 1 and two
005: Dried citrus ornament DIY – planning on trying this one myself
006:b Just hanging up a holiday garland increases the festive feeling twofold
007: Spruce up your laptop’s wallpaper with Wonder Forest’s holiday Nordic desktop and bring holiday cheer with you everyhwere – even at work

  • I’m all about Wonder Forest’s wallpaper but for some reason everytime I change it, it just goes back to the standard one. It’s pretty annoying.

      Thanks Sophie, and of course – do you have a portfolio that I could look at? If you are in Berlin, just send an email my way: [email protected] :)

  • Fabulous picks! I’m in the same boat as you with not being religious but using the holidays as an excuse to spend time with family and friends. (Not that we should need an “excuse” for these things, but unfortunately sometimes we do…)
