Wouldn't this make a fabulous winter chandelier? This is a product and snowflakes are laser cut but I think it can be DIYed easily. Snowflakes can be cut from paper, I found some  free snowflakes patterns at Design my home and fishing or nylon thread can be used to hang them.

Why don't diy some with your pet pic?

These DIY Tin can lanterns are  beautiful and inexpensive summer lights but I think they are also appropriate for Christmas.

Light carpet by Imu design
This is by far my favorite xmas decoration idea, a crochet light carpet! It looks like a giant crochet doilie! It can live also outside Christmas but  is easier to find the light tubes in shops in this time of the year. I can't wait to crochet light tubes! We can also make different shapes with the tube.


Oh Christmas! The house feels warm and inviting in this time of the year. I always look for unique ideas to enrich my collection of Christmas decorations. I don't know the origin of the Christmas madness that makes us want transform the house, invite friends over and sing along but I like it. I confess, maybe Santa's house is a little sober than mine at Christmas. Get inspired and overstuff the house.

Love the variation of the pine cone with the neon pink. I remember doing it as a kid to look like snow but this is a fabulous modern twist.
