  14. Lycinda Yount says:

    Follower for a long time. Love the boas! I can see one of the old time glamour girls standing one hand on her hip and in tne other foo long cigarette holder. Actually, so many cute things, impossible to have a favorite.

  23. Michele says:

    This was a hard choice to make! However, I chose the peppermint vase thing because I think I’d stand a better chance of getting it right. I’ve made similar vases before, quite successfully, depite my short-csomings (age, arthritis, etc. plus I’m not very good at handwork.)

    You do beautiful work!!

  24. Talitha Weight says:

    I already subscribe to your newsletter. I like the cookie tray project and the cotton ball “snowballs” on the tree.

  30. Sarah Thompson says:

    The thrift store wreath is my favorite go to for Christmas decorating. I will always reuse or recycle rather than buying new. It is my signature of decorating.

  31. elizabeth miller says:

    The dollar store table setting.

    Speaking of which I followed you on Pinterest, and already get your newsletter. I’m not on Facebook or Instagram though.

  43. Tina Voyles says:

    Oh , They are so neat! But I really like the frosted peppermint candle🎄

  44. Lisa Erin Amos says:

    I’m REALLY digging that faux wood fireplace (I took numerous years of French—I can relate to getting a chuckle when friends pronounce it “fawx)!” We live in Central Florida and this would be the perfect holiday touch for those disappointing Florida weather moments that bring us a warm Christmas (I’m a native—I’m allowed to be disappointed, lol)! Now…if I could just find a good price on an electric fireplace! This small one would be perfect for our little cottage! Thanks for the idea.

  45. Debra says:

  49. Lisa Babs says:

    The Dollar Store olive wreath appetizer plate was totally adorable. I’m going to keep that in mind when we entertain again.

    I was already subscribed to the newsletter and Facebook group. I just followed Instagram, I’m just not on Pinterest anymore, so I didn’t folllow on there (I don’t even know my password for that site anymore).

  50. Mary Gardner says:

    I really like the repurposed crib mattress Christmas tree.

  51. Lisa says:

  52. Debbie Welchert says:

    What a lot of affordable decorations to make this year. I’m loving the Gumdrop Tree and the Upside Down Santa Claus the most. I can’t wait to get stared.

  53. Julie, I love them all, but I really like the wood snowman family. I just made a round-rock snowman. After gluing the 3 round rocks together, I used a sharpie to make the face and buttons. Thanks for your wonderful inspiration! Margaret

  54. Cathy Philipps says:

  65. Deb Townley says:

    I have a thing for snowmen! Love your wood ones! Not on Instagram but everything else I am!!!

  66. Dawn Monzu says:

    Well…I looked through all of the ideas (great ones by the way!) and my favorite one is the very first one! The Gumdrop Tree is something that I’d love to make with my granddaughters! Of course, I suppose the hardest part is keeping enough gumdrops to make the tree. Happy Holidays!

  67. kathy Wallace says:

    There are so many wonderful ideas, it is hard to chose just one. I think I love the Christmas tree candles and the snow ball tree. So cute!

  68. Martha Cook says:

    ombre ornament rainbow reminds me me of the rainbow glassware that you’ve done previously. I also have a wide range of glass in all colors that I set in front of a window. Now I’m going to begin hunting for glass ornaments so that I can recreate it again! Love your inspirations.

  69. Dotty Strickland says:

    I like the dollar store cookie tray/stand.

  87. Miriam says:

    I love the Thrift Store Pallet Christmas Tree! Am attempting one myself.

  88. Lisa Green says:

    I really liked the gumdrop tree. My daughter (and her family) moved to Florida. So I’m going to mail the supplies to my grandkids, so we can make them together over face time.Thanks for sharing your ideas. I only have Facebook and Pinterest.

  89. Nancy K. says:

    Long-time subscriber here. My favorite thing is your Christmas cat(s). Do you have three cats or is that the same adorable, curious cat three times? As for my favorite project, that’s a tough one. The ice wreath is very creative and beautiful, and looks like a good project to do with children, so that would be my choice, if I HAD to choose just one. I don’t have Instagram or Facebook and I am relieved to see that some of your other readers don’t have them either. Sometimes I feel like The Lone Luddite. I enjoy your blog so much; thank you for brightening up our days.

  90. Cindy M says:

    I follow you everywhere and on everything!! I love your house, especially that kitchen! I’m sure that I can’t settle on just one thing that I love. The Feather boa is gorgeous. Wish I had a staircase! I think I’m going to have to make the peppermint frosted candle holder, the upside down santa vase and the pallet christmas tree next week when I’m off work! Sadly I won’t be doing a tablescape this year. I’m sanding and refinishing hardwood floors in our dining room! Maybe next year?

  91. Jodi Diamond says:

    To be honest, I love all the ideas! The one that stands out to me most is the thrift store sweater trees. I actually have several sweaters myself that would be the perfect candidates for this project, and will be trying this shortly!

  92. Angela Carrera says:

    LOVE all that you do (for years!!) now I have made one snowman from a shutter but the family is the best!!! thank you and happy holidays!!!

  93. Dale Langlois says:

    The gumdrop tree, I plan on making it with my daughter when she visits before Christmas!

  94. LORENA KEECH says:

    The Peppermint frosted candle is adorable. I will pot it on my “to-do” list for next season.

  95. Stephanie says:

    The gumdrop Christmas tree has to be my favorite!! It totally reminds me of my Grandfather & it doesn’t get better than that!! Thank you 🤓

  96. Kathie says:

    Love the snowman ☃️ family. Getting hard to buy old shutters I’ll have to try in the spring.

  97. Dotty Strickland says:

    I am partial to the cookie 3 tier server.

  98. Susan Skidmore says:

    I love your cotton ball idea and the floating star very clever!! Very Pretty Tree/

    I love the ornament filled lanterns! They are beautiful and make such a pretty display.

  105. I love your snowman family-so sweet! I have a special love for snowmen. This year I made a snowman using 3 small round stones glued together, painted white, and with face and buttons painted on with a sharpie. I follow you on Pinterest. You always have the best ideas.

  106. Karen Glover says:

    Hello, my favorite is the wooden snowman family it’s very creative reminds me of my family. Love it 💕💕💕

  107. Cherry Utley says:

    Love so many but the snowman pallet is great. It can go thru the rest of the winter months on the porch. I think I’m a member of the FB group but can’t tell 🤷‍♀️. I’m a redhead too, so when I ran across your newsletter years ago, i knew I would love it!

  108. Kim Gibson says:

    The faux wood burning fireplace is a winner!!!

  109. Rita Ramirez says:

    The mantle is my favorite; however, my daughter is potty training her 2 year old boys so I made a small gumdrop tree. When they potty on the toilet they get to pick three gumdrops off the tree! The incentive is amazing! One of them asked “Gigi what do I get if I poop on the toilet?” I had to add Hershey kisses. Love everything about Redhead can decorate. Simple and innovative ideas I would have never thought of! Merry Christmas and let’s hope for a healthy, Happy New Year for all!

  110. Lindsey Whiteley says:

    i really like the ombre ornament rainbow. But I don’t know if I have a place in my house to put it.

  111. lynn says:

    I copied the ornament filled lantern!
    And I can’t wait to make the Apricot Pockets!

  112. Deb Townley says:

    Love the Glamorous Christmas Mantel!! Do pretty! Sorry I’m not on Instagram 😜
