Handmade Gifts for 12 Weeks of Christmas

This week at Red Writing's is all about hand-crafted gifts for Christmas. And it's time to get busy - only 50 Days till Christmas!
This pink and green arrangement is one I put together in a vintage sugar bowl. I am about to list this arrangement on my website, so if you are interested in it, let me know.

The next arrangement is done in copper and silver - two of my favorite colors. I have this in my sitting room right now. Either of these little arrangements could be used on a dinner table, buffet, coffee table, built-ins, etc. This copper and silver arrangement is done in a silver-plate tea caddy. Anything silver catches my eye! If you haven't ever tried making your own arrangements, you should give it a try! It's very fun to do.

To see more hand-crafted Christmas, go to Red Writing's - there are some great ideas there!

I will be starting a series on Holiday Tables tomorrow. Please check back in a few times each week - I have some beautiful tables to show you - you will get some wonderful ideas!

Hi Shannon! Thanks for stopping by my DIY Soap blog! I love your handcrafted floral arrangements and your christmasy blog! I've volunteered to do my sisters flowers for her weddings, (including centerpieces for the tables), so I'm going to keep watching how you do these and learn from you! :)

I am interested in both of those (if I can afford them) They are gorgeous and would absolutely fit two people on my Christmas list. Really, really gorgeous.

I love the marriage of old or unique things with arrangments. You create lovely things. Sea Witch
