DIY Holiday Photo Crafts & Decor - #PintheHalls

If you are a regular here, you know we love to get crafty. The Lil Divas regularly get crafty all on their own as there is always a ready supply of paper, tape, scissors, glue etc within their reach. They love to draw, create books, make paper dolls, build doll houses and write stories with elaborate illustrations.

We really enjoy making our own holiday ornaments and decorations during the Christmas season. With each passing year our tree is slowly being overtaken by homemade ornaments versus those have been store bought. It is wonderful. Our Christmas tree is filled with not only ornaments but many wonderful memories of moments spent creating them together.

I mentioned in a previous post that this year we are participating in the Pin the Halls program sponsored by HP and Snapfish. I am beyond excited to be participating in this program as it has gifted us with some amazing products like the HP ENVY TouchSmart Ultrabook x4 that has allowed us to easily keep in touch with friends and family and create some fabulous holiday decorations using HP's Creative Studio.

The Lil Divas love using Fresh Paint. They have created countless holiday themed drawings that we turned into cards and gift tags for relatives and friends. The touch screen makes it so easy to paint and draw right on the screen.

I was able to make some fun photo creations using HP's Creative Studio . It is so easy to use and there are many fun and creative projects to choose from. My favorite was the snowflake photo ornament. I printed a bunch of different photo snowflakes and tied them together to create a garland which I used to decorate our long banister leading to the second floor. 

I even used a few of them as gift tags on presents for family. They turned out so cute. I can't wait for everyone to see them. 

The HP Creative Studio has tons of great printables including postcards, ornaments, photo cubes, mini books, photo collage frame templates and more. This is something I will be making lots of use of in the future.

Don't forget to enter our giveaway for the HP ENVY 120 e-All-in-One printer and be sure to check out my DIY Holiday Crafts & Home Decor Pinterest Board and the HP Create Pinterest Board for even more ideas.

Have fun getting creative,
