When it comes to sharing DIY posts, we’re often asked to share crafts that are kid-friendly, but still with our usually creativity and style. Immediately, we thought of making traditional birdseed ornaments. But it wouldn’t be a Jojotastic DIY without putting a twist on them… and in typical fashion, I couldn’t stop with just one idea — I had to give you three! When it comes to DIY tutorials, I’m a big fan of anything that is multi-purpose and eco-friendly — and these birdseed ornaments hit ALL the right notes.

What did you think of Joanna’s holiday tablescape yesterday? Personally, I love the festive simplicity of it. The holidays always come with so much bling and sparkle, sometimes it’s nice to embrace a palette cleanser and tone things down, ya know? I think there’s so much beauty in that. Today, I am sharing a foraged evergreen centerpiece tutorial that’s so simple and easy to recreate. With Joanna’s Scandinavian woodland Christmas theme in mind, I knew the primary goal was to have our centerpiece be a little reflection of the forest. After all, here in the PNW, that isn’t hard to achieve! In fact, all of the greenery we used was foraged, except for the juniper.

I’m changing things up on you guys and sharing my Christmas tablescape first! Usually, I like to share the floral centerpiece DIY first, then build to the full tablescape the next day. But for my holiday table this year, the two posts go hand in hand! Sarah designed the centerpiece, I set the table around that, then she added the final details. I loved styling a table this year and feel like that really comes across in how festive and cozy it feels.

My Ultimate Guide to The Best Stocking Stuffers

To me, stocking stuffers are a tricky thing… I hate the idea of giving a gift that someone doesn’t really need in order to simply fill a stocking. That feels so wasteful to me and the antithesis of my goals to reduce the waste in our home. Instead, I always brainstorm stocking stuffer ideas that are desirable, fun, and budget-friendly. This year I thought it would be fun to share my favorites with you!
