Christmas comes but once a year so I have to share ANOTHER dark Christmas tree from a reader — even though we already showed one gothy purple one! Whatever. I really doubt you guys are going to complain that we have too many AWESOME VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS PHOTOS.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of crafts posts.
I'd love to get some ideas for non-Christmas-holiday decorations. DIY would be especially treasured. Something more winter solstice-based…or really just not anything overly Santa Claus/presents/Christian-centered.
I am really awful at bringing details together, and I would love some offbeat advice!
FESTIVUS IS THIS WEEKEND! It's my household's most-anticipated party of the year. We drink mulled wine, air our grievances with each other, perform feats of strength, eat donuts, and then all guests must wrestle my husband before they may leave. It all happens in the cold aura of the Festivus Pole.
This is how you build a pole. The right way. All these supplies are available at your local hardware store — and they'll be cheaper than Amazon, so use this list for familiarity or the odd bit you can't find in town.
Like many cat parents, I have brought home a number of toys for my little guys…only to see them left untouched.
I abandoned purchased toys and now look for items around the house. The cats love twist-ties, the hair elastics, glasses of water, etc., but this usually translates into a display of trash all over the floor.
Any ideas for homemade toys — beyond tying stuff to string — that don't look like trash?

I have a lot of craft stuff. No, seriously, I have a LOT of craft stuff. I'm also a person who needs her ton of craft supplies to be organized and displayed attractively! Hey, I'm a complicated girl.
"Our space is great. There aren't really many challenges with the structure of it." Says the girl who built a bed in a closet. That's just the first reason you'll love this home tour.
We said a quick goodbye, but the "squealing" sound he made when I cut into him with my Dremel will haunt my dreams. Sorry, dude, but I think it was for the greater good.
