Most of the holiday projects you see in magazines and blogs are a load of reindeer crap. Many are 1) impossible to do, 2) wouldn’t look good in a real-world home, 3) incredibly time consuming or 4) just impractical.

So what are you going to do to make your home festive? I’ve scoured the pages of said publications to find projects that are beautiful and do-able.
