Welcome to Canvas Corp Brands’ Christmas Home Tours! We want to invite you into the homes of a few of our Crew members to see how they like to decorate and celebrate the holiday season. Everyone seems to have their own styles of decorating- vintage, woodland, modern & trendy, simple and basic, rustic, traditional, you name it! Not only do we like to decorate during the holidays, but every family has their own treasured traditions and yearly activities that they do. Let’s see what some of the Crew is up to this time of year! We will be featuring a variety of different homes, but one thing they all have in common is crafty ideas you can incorporate into you holiday decorating. We craft all year making creative projects, but many times we put all our supplies away, pull out the boxes of holiday decorations and forget to add our own personal creative style. We hope this week’s home tour will truly inspire you to be creative with your holiday decor. Our first Crew member is Alison Osborn, who sneaks in creative and decorating time every season around her full time job, family and kids. So many of these ideas are quick and simple but they look terrific, especially when added to Alison’s decor. We definitely know the little touches do make a difference.
Alison has a classic, handmade Christmas style with just the right amount of natural elements and sweet touches. “It’s the most wonderful time of the year, especially for crafters! I love decorating, party planning and making my home feel festive and fun,” says Alison. Alison decorates a variety of different spots in her home including the chandelier, dining table, fireplace and windows. In some homes the tree is the focal point and that is just perfect, with many of these ideas an option for the tree, but decorating small vignettes in around your home lets you try a few fun little projects.
“Here are some photos of my dining area. I love using Canvas Corp Burlap and Canvas as Table Runners, banners and additional decor touches. For the black and white banner, I used fabric from Canvas Corp’s Farmhouse Christmas.”
“The canvas and burlap stocking are one of my favorite items from Canvas Corp’s Christmas collection. You can even display them naturally for a classic design feel or decorate them to match your color palette. Also, every year in our house we do a Christmas countdown with our children’s Christmas books. You can find wonderful inspiration from children’s books, plus it can become a nice tradition with your family.”
“As you can tell by now, I love adding the color red to just about everything. Here are some photos of my living room decor,” mentions Alison.
“These are from the Christmas Countdown Stockings I did for Canvas Corp this year. This was one of my favorite projects.”
Each year you can add more projects to your collection so don’t worry if you are just staring this year. Make one or two and plan for next year. “One of my very first pieces I designed was this Happy Holiday Pillow using Canvas Corp’s Farmhouse Christmas. As you can see, more canvas, love it! Happy Holidays!”
