Clearly I’m inspired by Palm Springs and eras past and my decorating style is best described as vintage-modern. So today I’d like to share 10 genius vintage-modern Christmas decorating ideas I’ve come across that have knocked my socks off, plus a few favorites from Christmases past that I’ve had fun creating. Enjoy!
1. A Palm Springs Gingerbread House by Laura Gummerman for A Beautiful Mess (my head nearly exploded!)
2. How darling is this DIY Christmas tree wall hanging by Hank & Hunt?
3. Adorable DIY giant ornament balloons by Kelly at Studio DIY!
4. Glam-tails courtesy of paper straws + a fancy brooch and the mad mind of Mrs. Lilien!
5. Joy knocked it out of the park with this DIY pineapple gift wrap for odd-shaped objects.
6. The perfect DIY Christmas tree for small spaces by Almost Makes Perfect.
7. These DIY marzipan tree cake toppers by Jordan are so sweet.
