Celebrating San Antonio with a Fiesta Inspired Christmas Tree


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Google Fiber. All opinions are 100% mine.

Fiesta themed Christmas tree inspired by San Antonio's Fiesta!

Introducing the fiesta-themed Christmas tree that is now making my office extra merry and bright! This color-packed tree was inspired by San Antonio, my home for the past four years. I have fallen in love with the vibrant city, its welcoming community, and its unique culture. So when Google Fiber asked me to share how San Antonio inspires me to #MakeTheInternet festive, I knew I wanted to capture the festiveness of the city and its love for all things fiesta! Here's to making the internet more festive this holiday season!

DIY Metallic Pinecone and Acorn Wreath

Paint pinecones and acorns in a variety of glittery metallics for this glam Christmas wreath idea!

I couldn't let Christmas pass me by without making one new wreath this year! For my latest wreath for Oriental Trading's Fun365.com site,  I paired natural pinecones and acorns with shiny metallic gold, silver, and copper paint and glitter. The result is both rustic and glam at the same time. I love how it looks paired with some of my winter woodland animals and feather trees.

Read on for more closeup pictures of these pretty painted pinecones!

The possibilities for mason jar crafts are endless and I welcomed the opportunity to push my creativity to create a one-of-a-kind gift.
