Season after season, the holidays sneak up on me. Except this year. Perhaps motherhood should take credit but this year I’ve been determined to beat the holidays to the punch. Crafting is one of the things I love most about this time of year and since Thanksgiving weekend gives all of us that perfect amount of downtime before the madness of December encroaches, I though I’d help jumpstart your holiday crafting as well. These doll ornaments, made of old fashioned clothespins, has been something I’ve been dying to make ever since I spotted them at Anthropologie last year. Not only are they super adorable, with their cozy scarves and colorful ensembles, these dolls are ridiculously fun to make – especially with friends!

If you’re still unsure about building your own art gallery wall, here are plenty more examples to help inspire you. Lots of you have been asking how I put the gallery wall together in my son’s room. Here is a helpful tip. Trace each frame onto kraft paper, label them and cut them out. Tape them on the wall with painter’s tape and rearrange them to your liking. Once you’re happy with the layout, then hammer in those nails and hang your art!
