I LOVE decorating for Christmas! It is just one of the many reasons I love the holiday season. I came across an awesome DIY that I think you all are going to love! It adds sparkle to any mantle!

What you will need:

-100 mini lights

-1 canvas

1. Lay your canvas down on the floor or a flat surface and draw whatever pattern you want on the back of the canvas with a pencil. I chose to draw a snowflake-ish pattern on mine. Make sure you keep the pattern a little further apart to leave room for the lights. You can use an ice pick to poke the holes in the canvas where you made the pencil marks. Be careful though, ice picks are sharp suckers!

2. Poke the tip of the lights through the holes you have made in the canvas. You can secure the lights in the holes with hot glue if you want. The picture below shows what a hot mess the back of the canvas will look like, but it also shows how awesome it looks from the front! Prop this sucker up on your mantle, add some garland and a few sparkely accent pieces, and you will have the best looking mantle on the block!

            Hey girls!

            It’s half-way through November, crazy right?  This month has flown by and December is creeping up faster than we know it!  I know I’m not the only one counting down the days till Christmas and school break.  One of my favorite things about this holiday season are the Christmas parties, gift-exchanges, and family gatherings.  We all know it’s true, every girl has trouble finding the perfect party dress.  So, here’s my guide on finding the perfect holiday party dress!Chelsea Crockett - Holiday Dresses

  1. Lace is one of those everlasting trends that you can’t go wrong with.  Try finding a dress or shirt that features lacey sleeves or accents.
  2. You’ll always be sure to stand out if you rock a little sparkle.  If you go the shimmery route, make sure you keep it balanced.  Too much shine can be overbearing, so keep it at a good amount.
  3. Try sporting holiday colors.  Navy blues, dark reds, and neutrals give off a great feel of the season.
  4. Add some accessories!  Chunky necklaces are super in right now and go great with a lace dress.  Also, don’t be afraid to break out the heels and wedges to dress up your outfit.

                                                        Happy holidays!
