12 Days of Christmas Blog Challenge: Day 7

For today's challenge, I'm going to nibble off Ty's  of posting things I wish I could make!! One or two I am sure I could manage, though! I'm not original at all when it comes to the crafty stuff, but I love to get ideas from all of you!!

My sister actually gave me this idea when we were all back home this weekend for Thanksgiving. She had all the kids running around picking up acorns to put in a dish she has as a candle holder - I think it should look something like this:
I don't know if she planned to put the cranberries in hers, but I really like the color variety of this one!!

I actually have a plain green wreath at home & every year I re-decorate it and place it on my mantle with a wreath holder I got from my sisters. I don't hot glue or wire anything in place b/c when I take down my decorations I pull everything out of it b/c I know I'll want something different the next year.

I would love to be able to put together something like this beautiful wreath, though - I love the music paper ribbon!

But the one thing I look for every year is a great way to display my Christmas cards. I could buy a holder (there are tons of cute ones out there), but would much rather come up with a creative DIY version instead! Maybe something like this"

One year I did recycle all my cards from previous years & made ornaments like these - they were actually fun to make!
