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!
Check out all the details:
1. Gingham Garland
Get the how-to here!
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!!
3. Gingham Fireplace Logs
Watch the fun How-To Video Here!
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.
Oh so fabulous!
Hey Lori! Thank you for your comment. I love all the color don’t you?!! How are you decorating this year?
It’s a gingham rainbow Christmas!Love it!
Hello! Love love your IG and blog! I’m not sure how I never knew of you before (since I live in Athens Ga) but I learned of you from Page Minear’s IG and I’m so glad I did! (Except I just spent a few hours reading many of your posts and ideas…)
One quick question-one of my favorite features was your gingham Christmas ideas. On the mantle in the background of your fab photo there are two gingham paintings. The one in front with the white borders – did you paint that? If not could you share the source and artist? I could copy it but didn’t want to if it is someone’s artwork. Thank you! Jennifer Tuggle
Hello! Love, love your blog and IG!! Somehow I did not know of you before (even though I live in Athens, GA) but I learned of you from Page Minear’s IG – and i am so glad I did! (Even though I just spent several hours reading your blog and ideas…) SO great!
One quick question: the artwork on the mantle behind your fab photo in this gingham feature — did you paint that? If not, would you please share the source/artist? I love both of those paintings! I could copy it but don’t want to do that if it is someone’s artwork. Thank you!
ps: I meant the artwork in front, with the white borders.
Hey Jennifer!!! Thank you for getting lost in my work. The artist is Alexis Javier. He painted it about 10 years ago for me. He can be reached through Sulfur Studios.
