Pinterest for Holiday Inspiration

Do you use Pinterest as a source of inspiration for all things Christmas? I’m sharing the boards I created, as well as how you can plan for the holiday season using Pinterest.

It may only be the first day of November, but I find between now and Christmas, time flies by quickly. Last year I got into the groove a little sooner than usual. As a result, I found the time to create some handmade gifts and crafts, two things I’ve wanted to do more of for a long time.

So what was different about last year? First off, my son no longer played hockey, which freed up a lot of time. Another reason is that I planned ahead. This year, I’m taking the same approach.

At the end of October, I start looking for ideas online and in magazines so I will have time to gather everything I need and still have time to put it all together. I tend to find inspiration from Better Homes and Gardens, Martha Stewart, Chatelaine, Style at Home and several blogs.

These are all fantastic, but my favourite source of inspiration at the moment is Pinterest. There, I can find all sorts of DIY, craft, decorating and gift-wrapping ideas. Currently, I have 4 boards on Pinterest related to Christmas.

Pinterest Christmas Boards

Holiday Decorating Ideas is a general board I created last year for pinning Christmas trees, tablescapes, ornaments, crafts and more ideas for decorating your home for the holiday season.

Wrap It Up is a board I created for all things to do with wrapping gifts, including printable tags, basket ideas, handmade gift wrap, gift toppers and more.

Christmas Treats is a board I use to collect recipes, including cookies, squares, candies, cakes, plus more sweet and savoury treats for the Christmas season.

Finally, All Things Christmas is a group board I created this year for some of my blogger friends and I to share our favourite holiday pins. There, you’ll find wreaths, ornaments, Christmas trees, traditions and more!

I encourage you to create a holiday board of your own to keep track of ideas for this Christmas season. I also invite you to start following mine if you haven’t already, and be sure to repin any you find inspiring. Let me know if you’ve started a Christmas board too!

Where do you find ideas and inspiration for the holidays? Have you pinned any projects or ideas on Pinterest you’re planning on tackling this season?

  1. I’m so excited to get started on Christmas projects. Last year I sewed gift bags and this year I want to try those mason jar snow globes I saw on Pinterest. Thanks for sharing your boards!

  2. Oh yes, I have a Christmas board, (and am now following you!) but I love the idea of having recipes that I really will only use at Christmas on their own board. And so far all my wrapping pins are under my gift board, might be a good idea to have their special board too. Thanks for the inspirations! And yes, I’ve already completed/working on a few Christmas gifts and decorations. Like you said, it flies by so fast.

  3. I was so inspired last year to get things festive for the season early on, and I credit that to Pinterest for sure. I love Christmas anyway, but it was just so much fun to try some of the great ideas that are out there! I’m excited to get started this year, too. The real challenge is where to start!
