I love the nostalgic feeling of gingham and knew I wanted to use it in a fun holiday decor this season, so I decided to embrace it AND blow it out. With this gingham-inspired holiday decor, more was more! And, the modern/exposed brick environment help take this over the top “country” to an over the top “chic” design!

2. Gingham Stockings
Hand made from scraps of fabric and one old pair of pants with a seahorse embroidered on them which made for a super cute stocking. And don’t forget that fabric scraps also make a great pom pom!!

4. Gingham Ornaments
So simple! First a length of rick rack is pinned into a styrofoam ball, then scraps of gingham fabric leftover from making garland are attached to the ball using modge podge. Allow to dry and hang!

5. Gingham Tied Branches
There needed to be a little height in the corner to balance the height of the tree, so a few birch branches were wrapped in sections with gingham fabric and  leaned up against the wall. I love them!!!

6. Holiday Gift Wrap
Check out spoonflower for just about any wrapping paper you can imagine! It’s a slightly thicker paper than I typically like to wrap with, but the colors are perfection…so I deal.

I’m so in love with this gingham-inspired Christmas! Everything that decorated the tree was made by hand and with lots of fun and love.
