It's that time again! If you followed my Favorites of Halloween post, you should check these awesome posts out. Here they are, creative and beautiful ideas all under one post. (Note: they are not in order of 'favorites', they are simply compiled as I found them over the last couple of weeks!)
I'm thinking I'll do separate posts for each 10 or so I compile instead of adding to the same post each time. I would hate for you to miss any of the beautiful things I'm seeing and loving this Christmas season!! Enjoy!

I love these alter candles that The Answer is Chocolate has done now for a few holidays. Here are the Christmas ones. If I can find these at my local Dollar Tree, I plan on trying this idea. http://answerischocolate.blogspot.com/2010/11/joyeux-noel-christmas-candles.html
I love this simple idea and I love to play with glitter!! Eighteen 25 was featured on i heart naptime for this DIY project very early on and it stuck in my head.
