Each day this week Country Living Magazine shares a glimpse into the homes of some of the top bloggers to see how these women decorate their homes for Christmas. You can follow Country Living's series throughout this week here. For creative ideas to try in your home, today I'm sharing a few ideas from two of the homes in the tour.
Blogger Lucy from Craftberry Bush shares two of my favorite ideas.
In addition to using striking red and white to decorate her flocked tree, she has come up with a creative trick for the look of furry garland - Microfiber Feather Dusters.
Remove the handles and simply insert them into the crevices and gaps in between the branches. You can find these dusters at several places, including your local Dollar store, or online at Amazon or someplace like the one found here. You'll definitely want to look for the best price.
Another creative idea from Lucy is using wrapping paper to cover books for a festive look and fun display.

It was blogger Rachel's desire, from Maison de Pax, to share a feeling of "hope" throughout her home for Christmas this year.
She wanted a vision of angels singing "Glory to God in the Highest" so she thrifted sheet music for angel wings...
...and crafted this little "in excelsis deo" sign with scrap wood.
Using an artsy font, you can print the words of a quote that is meaningful to you and your family and insert it into a frame.
Here are a few more ideas from Rachel's home. You can find the full tour here.
