Trend: Honeycomb Berry Wreath DIY
It’s time to decorate for the holidays and I’m so excited. I’ve been making so many Christmas crafts and this one is a new favorite! My honeycomb berry wreath looks so lovely hanging in my house and it’s easy to craft. Check out the tutorial below to make this for your holiday home.
- 10 pack of 4 inch pretty shaped mint honeycombs
- 20 pack of 3 inch round mint honeycomb balls
- 16 inch foam wreath
- 1 roll of light blue crepe paper
- about 40 T-pins
- 1 pipe cleaner (to hang the wreath)
- 1 pack of small red pom poms
- hot glue
Step 1: Secure one end of the crepe paper to the back of the foam wreath with a t-pin. Continue to wrap the crepe paper around the whole wreath. When you’ve reached the end, secure the end piece with another t-pin.
Step 2: Grab the pipe cleaner and secure a loop around the wreath (so you can hang the wreath). Secure the pipe cleaner with a t-pin to keep it from moving around.
Step 3: Let’s start to add the “leaves”, a.k.a. the honeycombs. I suggest cutting some honeycombs in half, to add variety to the wreath. Push the t-pin through the cardboard portion of the honeycomb, then push the pin and honeycomb into the wreath. Tip: don’t open up all the honeycombs at once. Do it as you go along (you might want more cut in half).
Step 4: Continue to add more honeycombs around the wreath until the whole this is covered. Tip: You don’t have to cover the sides and back of the wreath. Just the portion of the wreath you can see in the front.
Step 5: Glue the red pom poms randomly around the wreath.
You’re done! Hang this pretty wreath indoors (it won’t last outdoors) and enjoy the holiday! If you need some more wreath inspiration, check out my Unexpected Wreath DIY Ideas right here.

It is almost time for turkey, pumpkin pie, and egg nog. Can you believe it?! We are closing in on the holiday season, friends, and it is a great time to keep your eyes peeled for fun pieces that can become part of your holiday decor and tablescapes. Before you can start collecting take some time to figure out who you want to be this holiday. For some of you this may be obvious. Maybe your are hollywood regency through and through and this style is clear throughout your home. Perhaps some of you enjoy taking a bit of a departure from your everyday decor during the holidays or when you throw a sweet soiree. Either way having a general direction in mind will keep your eye focused when you hit the antique markets, thrift stores, or ebay!
This concept certainly has a feminine edge so make sure you’ve got a nice scotch handy for the boys in your life! Think the softer side of holiday colors if you want to go pretty to the max. Soft pink and minty greens and muted gold accents. Balance out these soft tones with deep burgundy, deep jewel toned teals, and warm leathery browns. Bring in some soft texture with these sweet throw pillows. Chose pieces that whisper ladylike. Beautiful crystal barware and a lace inspired table runner will do the trick.
Is sleek and clean where you like to hang your hat? Keep your party modern and chic with lots of black and white with hints of metallic. This look is a great place to mix those metallics. Keep layering and patterns minimal and let the repetition of black and white and textures lead the way. I LOVE a good white out when it comes to holiday styling!
I just love the easy “I woke up like this” feeling of a bohemian home. This look feels as though it has been collected over a lifetime. To achieve this look you can not shy away from color and pattern. Layer, layer, and layer some more! Be sure you have an easy going organic element. Keep arrangements light hearted and not over worked.

Happy Valentine’s Day (a day early)! If you’re like me, you’ve already spent way too much time thinking about what you want to wear for your special night–as well as the thought that red is really not your color. But I’m here to prove you wrong! I’ve rounded up a list of some outstanding outfits that all revolve around bold reds!
Every woman needs a good blazer. Dress up a casual outfit with a bright red blazer like this one on Wendy’s Lookbook for a look that grabs the attention of everyone nearby. Wear along with a cute pair of pumps and some dark skinny jeans and you’ll be looking stunning all night long.
I like the simplicity of this red top I spotted on Lunchpails and Lipstick. This statement shirt is the perfect piece for the women out there who need a little less complication in their lives. Plus side: you’ll look gorgeous.
I love this red skirt on Pink Peonies. Find a matching hue of red lipstick and you’re in business. The best part about this flawless ensemble? It’ll go with almost any top you already have in your closet!
Already have your Valentine’s Day outfit picked out but looking to add a cute twist? These heart elbow patches I found scrolling through A Southern Drawl take this sweater from great to glamorous! And that tulle skirt? Adorable.
And lastly, red and pink are BFFs in the color world. While two bright colors might seem intimidating, don’t be scared off! This cute outfit on Gal Meets Glam takes the best of both worlds and puts them into one fabulous outfit! You’ll look amazing, don’t worry.
Have a happy happy Valentine’s Day, Style Spotters! Whether you’re out with you sweetie or rocking it with your girlfriends for a fun night on the town, look amazing doing it!
February! It’s that time of year again, folks. Amid all the flowers, fancy dinner dates, candy hearts and cards, it’s easy to get lost in the formalities of Valentine’s Day–and forget that the best way to spend it is loving on all those special people in your life. To help you celebrate, I found some awesome DIY ideas to make this year’s day of love the sweetest one yet.
As a hopeless romantic, I actually love reading through all of the cheesy Hallmark cards. Even so, I can never seem to find the perfect one. This year, stop worrying about finding a card that encapsulates all you want to say to your special someone–make your own instead. Look at these cute DIY card ideas from Delightfully, Kristi for some inspiration!
If you want to spruce up your space this Valentine’s Day, take a look at this gorgeous star burst wall art from Lia Griffith. Super easy, super chic, and pretty enough to keep up all year if you want, this bright addition is sure to surprise your sweetie!
And finally, finding the perfect gift for your special someone is only half the battle–add a whole new “WOW” factor with these DIY gift wrap tutorials I found on The House That Lars Built. Love, love, love it!
Enjoy the week! If you try any of these cuties, I’d love to hear how they turn out!
Hello Style Spotters! I hope the holiday season is in full swing for you all, and that you’ve got time planned to spend with family and friends! If you’re like me, you haven’t even started thinking about gifts or decorating or all those holiday shenanigans yet–and that’s ok. I’ve pulled together a few last-minute options for you to take a look at.
I love this simple copper card tree holder tutorial from The Nest. It’s perfect for showing off all the cute cards you receive this holiday season while adding extra Christmas cheer to your home at the same time.
I have a horrible track record with mittens. It seems like the day after I get them, they get lost. For the mitten-losers out there, try this adorable sew-your-own tutorial from A Beautiful Mess. Find an old sweater and start sewing! Hopefully you won’t lose your handiwork (Terrible pun intended. Bear with me).
Last minute holiday party? Look no further. Try this awesome Colorful DIY Christmas Party guide from Paper & Stitch. Go wild with bright colors or tame with more traditional red’s and green’s. Either way, you’ll have a room your guests will be sure to remember!
And there you have it! Enjoy the holidays, friends! See you next year!
