Here’s a look at what we’re loving from around the web this week…
Take an Artful Approach to Decorating Cookies
From the delightful aroma wafting from the oven to finally consuming your carefully constructed creations, there’s nothing quite like decorating cookies for Christmas. We love this updated take on traditional frosting from Epicurious. No pristine piping here—instead, discover how to make watercolor ornaments, snowcapped letters, and ombré glitter tree cookies. Happy baking!
DIY This Incredible Winter Wonderland Scene
Channel your inner Buddy the Elf by turning your space into a winter wonderland. The method couldn’t be easier—simple paper-cutting techniques to create chain-link garlands, snowflakes, and lanterns will have you feeling like you’re back in grade-school art class. The best part? All you need is a ream of white printer paper, scissors, and glue. Call it a Christmas miracle.
Gift a Custom Cocktail Kit
Sure, wine is a perfectly wonderful gift to give and receive, but why not switch things up this year with a cocktail kit instead? This homemade hot-toddy kit from Half Baked Harvest is one of the cutest DIY gifts we’ve seen this year, and it feels as thoughtful as it is clever and delicious. Cheers!
Tour a Design Studio Decked Out for the Holidays
We’re loving designer Tammy Connor’s sophisticated Southern take on holiday office decor. Her design atelier, located in Birmingham, AL, features loads of lush greenery, classic accents, and a few cozy touches—a perfectly graceful space for meeting with clients and entertaining friends alike.
