DIY holiday decor
We’re kicking off this festive time of year with a Handmade Holiday blog hop featuring some of our favorite makers and designers to see how they celebrate the season across the globe. It might be snowing at our Berlin, Germany factory, but our friends in Australia are hitting the beaches for the holidays — and they’ve got DIY projects to prove it!
Each day we’ll update this post so you can see what everyone is making and find out how to recreate the projects at home. You can even join the fun by following #sfholidayhop and tagging your handmade holiday projects on your favorite social channel!
Today we’re starting things off right here with a DIY project from community favorite and a familiar face to the blog, Ceri Staziker, aka CeriGwen. Keep reading to see how Ceri is celebrating Christmas with her family using a customized advent calendar printed on Kona® Cotton Ultra. She may have even left a little gift so you can customize your own calendar!

My kids and I usually make some kind of handmade ornament every year at Christmas. Little painted green trees with clothespin bases and glued-on sequins were one year’s project. Then there was the year of the silver pipe cleaner circles with plastic pony beads threaded onto them, among other sweet decorations. Many such handmade ornaments cover our tree and house at Christmas time and I love thinking about years past when we bring the ornament boxes down from the attic and crack them open each December.
