The holiday season is now upon us and for many of us, it's that time of the year when we decorate our homes with cheer and festive flair. As we gather in our homes with friends and family to create new memories, we enjoy surrounding ourselves with our favorite holiday decorations and scents of the season.

What scent reminds you of the holidays? Is it the smell of spruce? Apple cinnamon? or vanilla? Your favorite holiday scents can help bring joy into your home during this joyous season. The smell of a pine tree lets me know that the holidays have arrived and it's time to celebrate traditions with those I love. The scent of spruce invokes many great childhood memories. I'm taken back to my childhood when my family and I would visit a tree lot to pick out our tree to bring home and decorate it together.

It's been many years since we've had a real Christmas tree in our home for the holidays. The first thing I missed was the amazing smell of pine. Every year before the holidays officially arrive I stock up candles and air fresheners that contain that pine scent that I love so much. Holiday scents are an easy and inexpensive way to decorate the inside of your home.


While on my recent grocery shopping trip to HEB, I was easily able to purchase some of my favorite holiday scent from Glade®. With many different products options to select from when it came to these festive scents, I was able to bring the scent of the holidays home.


I made this cute and decorate holiday trees to place alongside my candles. This craft was simple and fun. I love holiday scrapbook paper but often have no way of displaying it within my home. This craft allowed me to use some of my pretty holiday paper to help decorate my home with.


What you need:
  • Triangle/Tree shapes wood blocks (I was able to find this set of 3 at my local craft store. If you're unable to locate them, you can always head to your local hardware store and have them cut some plywood or wood into the shapes you desire)
  • Holiday scrapbooking paper.
  • Cutting tool - scissors, rotary cutter, craft knife.
  • Adhesive - Glue, glue sticks, mod podge.
  • Embellishments - stickers, glitter, rhinestones.
Instructions:
  1. Cut paper into 1-inch or 1/2-inch strips.
  2. Adhere paper onto wood.
  3. Cut off any overlapping paper.
  4. Add embellishments.
