Today is round two of featuring Christmas inspiration from my fellow bloggers. On Tuesday I showcased trees and decor. Today is all about Christmas crafts and recipes!

I also fell in love with the set of soft vintage Christmas printables that Serving Up Southern is offering. It’s not too late to print and display these in your home.

Patti at Hearth and Vine shares her adorable Christmas treat bags. It’d be fun to fill these with potpourri or small candies and attach them to gifts.

The final project on this list of Christmas crafts is this adorable string art from Girl, Just DIY. Except Toni didn’t use string to create her artwork – she used wire! I think it would be so much fun to decorate this tree with little charms.

CHRISTMAS RECIPES

Bring on the recipes! There are just a few, but I think you’ll find them appealing. First. I want to share my eggnog recipe that I’m making for a dessert option after Christmas dinner.

There’s also my wonderful Wintermint Ombre Cake that’s worth your time and energy!

And my Christmas trifle! This dessert is super easy to make.

I love serving my individual chocolate souffle with creme anglaise. Contrary to popular opinion, souffle really isn’t hard to make and it makes such a great impression.
