We've turned to everyone's favorite purveyor of vintage/indie/handmade/craftastic goodness for some holiday decorating inspiration... That lovable juggernaut, Etsy! There's a treasure trove to be found there, you can decorate your whole house from top to bottom, find the perfect holiday card, buy ALL of your gifts, the stockings, the wrapping paper, ornaments and even the tree!!
Let's start with the front door and the Christmas wreath.
We found this beautiful custom handmade wreath at Wild Ridge Design. The one above is a grapevine wreath featuring pip berries and scented oil. If you're looking for a fun retro vibe, look no further than Hester, Maude & Nancy. They create heirloom quality Christmas wreaths and decor from antique ornaments.
Next up we have some deer! What's that you say? Your mantle is missing that something special? When in doubt, put a deer on it! Our favorite is this Ceramic White Deer Vase by Near And Deer.
Or this Vintage Brass Mid-Century Reindeer found at Rust Belt Threads.
These amazing white ceramic mugs come from Barceramics. The hooves are covered in pure gold! These amazing cups are 100% handmade in Poland.
We found some very cool Hanukkah pieces this year by Studio Armadillo out of Israel. The first is a beautiful modern ceramic dreidel, it also doubles as a bud vase making it useful all year round.
We also went crazy for their gorgeous origami inspired menorahs.
This pretty mint and gold garland comes from Transparent Es Decor in Spain.
We found these super fun modern Scandanavian inspired stockings at Beek in Portland, Oregon.
We're crazy for this set of vintage, yet completely contemporary, snowy mountain landscape wrapping paper by Normans Printery.
There are so many fantastic hand-made and vintage ornaments on Etsy that it was hard to narrow down our selection, but here are some of our favorites.
These exquisite white and gold geometric ornaments are on trend this year. We found them at Loop Design Studio, located in Israel.
Who can resist the charm of these Mid Century Colorful Glass Christmas Ball Ornaments? The Vintage Road 2 Retro has an enormous array of vintage goodness just waiting to fill your heart with Christmas nostalgia.
And last but not least, we have the Christmas tree. Sure, it would be very hard to give up having that Christmasy pine smell that a real tree provides, but these trees are making us think twice.
If you're looking to keep Christmas really simple this year, look no further than Cardboard Christmas in Estonia. This pared-down tree is made of 100% natural recycled cardboard, it stores flat and can be used again and again, year after year.
This tree makes our hipster hearts very happy! Better yet, it comes to us right from San Francisco from ReTree Joy. Its clean, open design allows you to see all those great Etsy Christmas ornaments you've just purchased.
Well that about wraps up this epic Etsy post... We could go on and on (quite literally forever) about the holiday magic going on at Etsy, but you should go see it for yourself! There is still enough time to ship...
P.S. They even have gift cards!
