Though we're technically midway through December, we just loved this simple, homemade advent calendar and couldn't help but share it all the same.

Captured by Jenny Moloney, see all the details...

Garland and Wintry Wreaths from Daisy Rose Floral Design

Surrounding ourselves with all-things-pretty is what we’re all about here at SMP at Home. Though the holidays are behind us now (insert soft sobs here), it doesn't mean that our table tops should remain undecorated and our doors unwreathed (it's a verb!). Captured by the talented Jessamyn Harris, Daisy Rose is here today sharing some gorgeous wintry wreaths and...

DIY Hostess Herb Vases

With simple DIY's the likes of this one, there isn't really any excuse to show up to a party empty handed this year.

DIY Book Ornaments

Whoever said that beautiful, handmade ornaments were a thing of the past was seriously mistaken! Don't let the looks of our leatherbound book ornament fool you: it can be whipped up by anyone in no time. But our favorite part about this craft? The pages can be completely personalized to the giftee's taste. Think along the lines of a sweet quote, lyrics from a favorite shared song... or even a proposal! (Yep, we had to go there). At any rate, think about how good it'll feel to make something this...

DIY Pine Sachets

Ok, so let's take another look at that list again: there's your kid's teachers, their friend's parents, the principal, the school nurse... and then there's the ten people you'll remember just when you think you have everyone covered. What to get for all of these folks? Well, we think these DIY pine sachets are just what the doctor ordered. Literally everyone loves both the smell of pine and receiving a thoughtful, homemade gift.

DIY Crayons

Sometimes it's the simplest of projects that lend the most amount of fun. And these little gems are about as good as it gets. DIY crayons where your children's imagination can take center stage. We opted for fun alphabet letters because our 4 year old is learning to spell but you could really do anything...hearts, stars, x's and o's. All you need is a batch of old crayons in your favorite colors and a few...

Easy DIY Hand Puppets

Making your own toys teaches your kids to have fun with the simple, to the value the handmade and to love the process. All without batteries. Felt in various colors - white, ivory, black, dark brown, brown, tan, burnt orange...

DIY Tiered Wreath Centerpiece

Great DIY centerpieces can be tricky. First, you're usually crafting something that you've never attempted to make before. Second,  because it's the center of your table you don't want it to be just "so-so." Thankfully, our tiered wreath centerpiece has you covered. Despite its fancy appearance, it's super easy to recreate (we know from first-hand experience!). For those of you with champagne taste on a PBR budget, we think this is a wonderful compromise.

DIY Etched Wine Decanter

Here at Style Me Pretty, we like to consider ourselves wine connoisseurs. As you also may have guessed, we have a strong affinity for adorable DIY projects. So when our resident crafting expert suggested creating a marriage of the two for our Christmas Soiree, we (instantly) welcomed the idea with arms wide open. Love of vino aside, our etched wine decanter is ideal for the thoughtful holiday gathering. Anything that can indicate self-service to guests while simultaneously acting as a piece...

When hosting a party, especially a holiday party, you want to make sure that the ambiance is warm and inviting. This is exactly what these DIY hanging wreaths were made for. Yes, candles on their own are fantastic. But when guests see a few of these beauties hanging around your home, it'll be as if you're casually saying, "Oh, did I forget to mention that I'm an amazing hostess? Sorry about that!" When you're inevitably complimented, of course, you'll act as if it was just something you threw...
