Christmas with Martha – Tons of Great DIY Decorating Ideas

Make a festive DIY ornament Christmas tree!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the Martha Stewart offices many times but this Christmas event was so much fun that I had to share with you.

So many fun, colorful and festive Christmas ideas that Martha made right in front of us and it was streamed live on Facebook (you can even see me in the video asking Martha her favorite hostess gift to bring to a party).

Don’t miss the end of the post where I’ve rounded up my favorites and if you see something you like, you can shop the look.

Here are some of my fave Martha Stewart Christmas decorating ideas…

Martha Stewart Christmas workshop - so many creative DIY ideas

The kissing balls were so cute.  Just cover a styrofoam ball in shatter resistant ornaments and voila.  Or you can buy a pre-made ball here.

It was a real JOY to be there and loved the glittery berry wreath and festive stockings.

I am in love with these huge metal bows and need one for my front door (comes in silver too).  

Use a giant red metal bow in place of a Christmas wreath on the front door!

Love this little DIY Christmas village wreath.

I was asked to craft along with Martha! My bow making skills can’t compare to hers but hey, I’m a work in progress.

So many Christmas cookies!

I had fun with old friends, met some new ones and was inspired to run home and deck my own halls.

  2. I love your blogs but can’t get it enlarged enough to easily read it. What can I do – it comes in at about 3″ wide and only takes up about 1/4 of my screen.
