Pins I’ve Been Lovin’ Christmas Edition
Christmas is by far my favourite time of the year if you haven’t already guessed, there’s not one single thing I don’t like about, I don’t even mind the cold. I always go all out, every December, I decorate every room, have a special Christmas CD for the car and even make my own Christmas candles to sell which makes my house smell amazing! I’m even more excited this year because I’ve been able to share it all with you!
If you saw my last ‘Pins I’ve Been Loving’ you’ll know how obsessed I am with Pinterest, I love it even more at Christmas because the pins get me so excited! There’s thousands of inspirational posts, gift ideas, food ideas and so so much more, plus, it’s an amazing way to share everyone’s amazing work. I’ve been having a good ol’ rummage through so I’m going to share quite a lot of them with you, be prepared, this is a big post!
The first thing that I went look for was treat inspiration, although I won’t have that much time on my hands I am planning on baking quite a few things. I’ve some amazing recipes that have led me to some amazing food/baking bloggers.
The first recipe I stumbled across is a very very popular one. Debbie from onelittleproject.com shared a recipe to make these gorgeous Christmas Tree Brownies last year and I’ve had my eyes on them ever since! Debbie also has quite a few Christmas inspired recipes on her blog so make sure to take a look for a bit of inspiration – here
I actually hate mince pies myself, but I will be baking them for the family, so I had a quick search for a recipe and these definitely looked the best. I’ve never made mince pies myself before so this ‘just easy recipe‘ sounded quite appealing. This of course led me to another amazing blogger, Louise from justeasyrecipes.co.za; who has some absolutely stunning posts.
I also came across these adorable Bitesized Gingerbread Houses that I really really want to make, I doubt that I’ll have the time hah, but I just couldn’t leave these gorgeous things out. Here is the recipe if your interested in making these, there’s also a downloadable template I believe to help you shape your houses.
I also managed to find some adorable Christmas Cupcakes; I just couldn’t do this post without adding some. While I was searching through this pins site (there are so many amazing cupcake recipes on there!) I came across Bree’s Christmas Light Cupcakes post – which I’ve now already wrote the ingredients down for – Bree shares some incredible posts on her blog – Bakedbree.com – and I am now obsessed.
Next I went looking for DIY decoration ideas. Pinterest is an amazing place to find inspiration and let me tell you, I found some. I also came across quite a few stunning pins that just make me feel soo festive!
I came across this beautiful DIY Santa & Reindeer garland that is one of the most simple DIYS I have ever seen. I had a quick search and found Lexys blog, theproperblog.com where she has shared exactly how to make it yourself, she has also shared the free printables to make it easier, which you can find on this post
Then I came across Kellys pin, which is an unbelievable Fish Bowl Snowman that I need to do so so bad, it just looks incredible. I went on to find her how to post, which also includes a youtube video quickly showing you how Kelly put this snowman together. It looks a bit complicated but it is definitely not and I really hope I can quickly get my hands on everything to make this! Kelly has sooo many Christmas DIYS, you definitely need to have a nosey at her blog – smartschoolhouse.com
Alifya, from Alifyalifestyle.com shared 2 beautiful DIYs on her blog this month and they are amazing! Firstly she shared some amazing things to do with jars to make them all Christmassy – post here & then a cute little Christmas house – post here
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without games would it? I always get the traditional games out, but this year I might step it up a bit, so I had a quick search and found way too many ideas that I just won’t have the time to prepare but I found a few that are easy to get sorted.
The first thing I spotted will be perfect for the kids, which is, Chocolate Christmas Bingo with free printables! Here’s Diana’s amazing post!
I then spotted something else that would be perfect for the kids on the run up to Christmas, this elf activity pack which is free to download on this post!
I also came across these Christmas song Pictionary cards, which gave me such a good idea to create my own with all the things our family love about Christmas & I am so excited!
The last thing I had a look for was wrapping inspiration, I am a sucker for going over the top with presents even though all the paper is going to get ripped off & thrown away, I just can’t help myself! Of course, I found some unbelievable ideas.
