The Power of Pink
Pink is a soft and festive shade that can bring a touch of antique glamour to Christmas decorations. This tinsel tree from Grandin Road is a replica of one of Martha's own trees. Vintage ornaments add pops of color. Glittered reindeer graze on the mantle, which is framed by sparkling silver wreaths from The Home Depot.

White is a wonderfully wintery color to incorporate into holiday decor. Our white feather tree is decorated with ornaments from the Martha Stewart Collection, only at Macy's, and ribbon from Masterstroke Canada. A glittered ball tree topper from our editorial director of crafts, Hannah Milman, completes the display. Martha Stewart Living icicle lights from The Home Depot hang above the staircase.

Our kitchen shelving is transformed for the holidays using colorful mat board from Blick Art Supplies.
To give your shelving a seasonal update, simply choose mat board in a color to match your decor and cut to the dimensions of the back of your shelving unit. Empty and remove shelves, place mat board against back wall, and replace shelves. You can also wrap the mat board with decorative paper (such as wrapping paper) or fabric for a different look. The pieces can be saved and reused from season to season.

Natural Birch Wall
Birch bark shingles framed by glittered sweetgum wreaths give the craft room a warm, woodland feel. Reindeer figurines from Grandin Road add a playful touch.
To re-create our birch wall, cut a piece of Homasote fiberboard to the dimensions of the wall you'd like to cover. Cut sheets of birch bark (available from Jamali Garden) in half to make birch shingles. Beginning at the bottom of the board, use a staple gun and long, heavy-duty staples to attach shingles in a row, end to end. Continue creating rows up to top of board, staggering and overlapping birch as you would shingles. Fit board against wall; use temporary adhesive hanging strips to hold in place, if necessary.
