SheKnows Home and Living Editor, Kelli Uhrich, shares her favorite inspiration from this month’s issue of Martha Stewart Living.
Inspired by martha
Each month it’s the same: My life cannot function until I’ve browsed through the pages of Martha Stewart Living. Some might call it a sickness; others, an addiction. But for me, I call it a fundamental necessity of life. And in December, I believe that it’s simply not Christmas until you’ve coveted the latest Martha Stewart craft.
With Christmas just around the corner, there’s still enough time to squeeze in a last-minute craft. My recommendation for a quick evening or weekend project would be this remarkable PVC Christmas tree wall art.
It’s a fun way to display leftover ornaments and trinkets, and it won’t break your holiday budget. All that you need to create this seasonal masterpiece are a few PVC pipes cut into rings.
Quick tips to get this look
- Choose various sizes of PVC pipe and cut them to different heights.
- Use string or tape to first outline the shape of your tree; then glue your rings in place, keeping them within the lines.
- Gather the items you would like to display, and determine your color scheme. Use spray paint as a quick way to refinish any items that don’t already match or wrapping paper to wrap small jewelry boxes for extra pieces.
- Spread your colors out in your tree, rather than clustering colors together.
Happy crafting, and happy holidays from SheKnows!
