When I opened up my holiday issue (Nov 2012) issue of House & Home Magazine I gasped at the quirky colourful beauty of a story on paper holiday decorations crafted by my good friend Sarah Hartill.
I love everything about these ideas: the simple handmade quality, the punchy colour combinations, the out-of-the-box approach to Christmas. Good job Sarah! I’m sure you’ll love them too, and you can get full DIY instructions over at houseandhome.com or by clicking here.
This poinsettia garland with pink, red and the gorgeous Farrow & Ball wallpaper is drop-dead gorgeous. For those of you who are wondering, I have a feeling that’s a Mjolk deer pelt on the bench in foreground. The brass candle stick collection is killer too.
This snowy garland is a mixture of white papers and newsprint I believe and it couldn’t be more stunning! Love it draped over an industrial bookcase.
These handmade ornaments have a decidedly modern feeling with their collage of newsprint and punchy pink glitter. Love the idea of adding colour to just the top of the newsprint ornament.
Isn’t this laurel wreath amazing?! I am totally enamoured and think this colour combination is just delish! I think that’s a velvet bow in pink against the red wreath and icy door and I just have to say hats off to you Sarah Hartill!
