    Wow, Julie, you have an amazingly awesome stash of fabulous Christmas projects. I was just looking through them and I can’t pick a favorite but I know where to come if I’m looking for some thrifty inspiration.

  15. Gwen says:

    Not only can “Redhead Decorate” but she certainly can “Brain” quite a lot of ideas. I am so inspired by your site and your clever ideas. I just rediscovered you last week; I think I came across you last year, but did not save your site or connect, then, POOF!, your info was gone. How could I forget the great website Domain name? Thankfully, I came across your site through one of the project groups you take part in. I think I have rediscovered those sites, as well. I have been enjoying touring your pages and signed up for a newsletter subscription, now I won’t miss anything ’cause I have a reminder. Thanks for sharing your stuff.

    • Julie says:

      I am so happy to have you here, Gwen!! Just in time for the holiday tour coming up at the end of the month. Welcome back!!

  16. Kristin says:

    So many awesome ideas! I was pinning away! I don’t think I can choose a favorite!

  17. Kristi says:

    So many fabulous ideas, my friend. But, you’ll ALWAYS be the queen of the tablescape. Your holiday ones are my faves! xoxo, Kristi

  19. Diana Raymond says:

    Hi Julie,
    I love all of your decorating you’ve inspired me in so many ways in decorating my own home.
    I love all of your photos that you post showing us all of your remodeling to your family photos including your mom and dad.

    Have a Merry Christmas
    Diana

  20. tracey A says:

    Wow! You have some GREAT ideas! I like Recycled Christmas Light Ornament, and your cat staring at the balls on the table!

  21. Betsy Phillips says:

    The gumdrop tree is adorable! This will be a fun project to make with my 5 year old grandson.

  22. Cindy Meisenheimer says:

    I already follow you on all of those social media sites. I love ALL of your ideas. I have done a Faux wood burning fireplace just like yours. I bought it for my mother. It stopped working and then she passed away. I knew there had to be something I could use it for. So I did pretty much exactly what you did and it now sits on my huge wrap around front porch between two gliders. At Christmas time I fancy the area up with Christmas stuff, oversized Christmas balls, some greenery and it looks really cute. Thank you for the idea!

  23. Nancy says:

    Julie your ideas are inspiring me to look at what I already have and using it in an different way, the lanterns simply filled with ornaments and lights are so festive and easy decorating.

  24. Doris says:

    I like many things but I guess because my parents are elderly and there seems to be many kids this year, I like the DIY Gift Wrap because you can write a sentiment to each person you give a gift.

  25. Sandra Baker says:

    Hello! I love all your ideas and can’t wait for your newsletter to come. I’m only on Facebook, nothing else. My favorites are: the ornament name card holder, the elegant mantle display, the olive wreath appetizer tray (I also made one out of grapes). Thank you so much for the opportunity to win the gift card! Christmas blessings to you and your family!

  26. Lyndi Forehand says:

    OMG! The Dollar store tablescape is my fave! But, I also like the outdoor decorating, too! Decisions, decisions….❤️

  27. carol bittner says:

    Love the faux wood burning fireplace. Have been keeping my eye out for somebody’s trash, to make it my treasure!! Thanks Julie

  28. ColleenB.~Tx. says:

    All of them are such great and easy projects but that rustic Thrift Store Pallet Christmas Tree I absolutely love.

  29. Bette` says:

    Merry Christmas Julie & Family:
    This is so great that a Canadian could possibly win your contest.
    Sooo many crafts, I love them all, especially the ornament for Rick, “You Light Up My Life”. I am going to try and make one for my Joe. I also love what you do to all the trees. The outdoor deco is fun, I like your shutter snowmen family as well.
    Hope you are all safe and not too cold. We don’t have snow in B.C. yet, I’m sure it’s coming.
    Let’s hope for a better 2021.
    Cheers, Bette

  30. Linda Dreher says:

    Thrift store wreath makeover with bows ( made this one last year)
    Ceramic tile reusable gift tags (great idea)
    Dollar store Christmas tree candles (looks simple to make)
    Wood shutter snowman family (really want to try this one)
    Mini tree stump place card holders (so cute, great idea)

    Can’t wait to try these new ones.
    Merry Christmas!

  31. Cate says:

    I LOVE gold mantle, the peppermint candle, the stuffed lanterns, the doodle bench, the crib mattress spring, and the no paper wrap. Really, they’re all such great ideas and the spring off more ideas. Love what you do Ms Redhead! Thanks for all the inspiration and fun. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

  32. Sandra Smith says:

    Hello, Julie! You are one of the busiest decorators I know! You’ve amassed an incredible # of fine thrifty Christmas ideas. Is it okay if I have a ‘tie’? I love the ornament filled lanterns and the autographed bench is so unique and memorable. I also love the frosted candle, but, hey—I must stop! Have a wonderful Christmas and more hopeful and positive 2021 for us all. Best, Sandra

  33. Janet K Simmer says:

    Love, love the thrift store mantle it is gorgeous! Closely followed by the frozen wreath, it is cool. I like the name holders also

  34. melody says:

    Hi Julie. I loved the $ Store cookie tray. Long time subscriber to your newsletter. Follow you on Pinterest and Facebook. I am not on Instagram. Have a Merry Christmas.

  35. Nancy Walden says:

    I love the “snowball” tree. My 8-year-old great-granddaughter would have a good time putting cotton balls on the tree. I also love how you suspended the red star from the ceiling! I’m going to keep an eye out for similar stars so I do that next year!

  36. Karen Lewis says:

    I love, love the crib springs tree!! So cute and could be used inside or outside!

  37. Love Love Love the ornament filled lanterns!

  38. Marcia Defreese says:

    I’ve gotta do the ornament stuffed lanterns. I love lanterns and have several medium-large ones with battery-operated “FO” candles. 😉

  39. Marcia Defreese says:

    Forgot to add that I’m a long-time subscriber already and I don’t do Insta. Thanks!

  40. Susanne says:

    I love the gumdrop tree!

  41. Amanda says:

    This is so hard to choose which one of these 25 stand out to me the most. I absolutely love the small stump and Christmas ball place card holder, the wood shutter snowman family and the white candles with the Christmas trees on them. The place card holder is so unique, i have never seen anything like this so I would have to say it stands out the
    Most. I love your channel and the Thrifty Style team. Y’all are amazing and have the beat ideas and projects for DIYers. Merry Christmas to you and your families from my family!🙏🏻⛄️🌲🦌🤶🏻🎅🏻🕯🎄and blessing for the upcoming New Year!❤️😘

  42. Kim Jung says:

    I really like the Sweater Trees. This will be a fun project with my granddaughter. We might even try our hand at Sweater Angels.

  43. Irene says:

    This is so hard to choose which one of these 25 stand out to me the most. Love the ornament filled lanterns and the white candles with the Christmas trees!!

  44. Andrea says:

    The Christmas place card holders is my favorite. I like adding a bit of wood to my otherwise industrial/chic decorating.

  45. Michelle Lyle says:

    I love the idea of the repurposed Christmas light bulb s in an ornament!!
    I’m not on Instagram.

  46. Kathie says:

    The ☃️⛄⛄ family. Hard finding inexpensive shudders now.

  47. Nancy Harrington says:

    I really like the wooden family all decked out in there scarfs and hats

  48. I love the upside down Santa! I actually remember this from many years ago, and it was a forgotten craft until I saw yours!

  49. Barbara Warner says:

    Julie,
    There’s no doubt “Redhead Can Decorate!” I made the Dollar Tree Christmas candles last yr and I have purchased supplies to make the Epsom salts/Crushed Peppermint frosted candles for this Christmas. I love the olive wreath you made and my whole family loves olives, so I can see that as a great piece on our Christmas sideboard. I also have the supplies on hand to make the “mini tree stump placecard holders.” You are truly a gem.
    Keep up the great work and Merry Christmas.
    Barbara
