  1. Gingerbread garland, via Donna Hay: How cute is this? Donna Hay provides a recipe and tutorial for this garland, so you can hang these little men anywhere in your kitchen.
  2. String lights, via Houzz: Twinkle lights over the kitchen door add just the right amount of holiday sparkle.
  3. Ornaments on a wire, via Miss Design: Hang a few ornaments from a wire strung across your kitchen window, and your new view may make washing dishes not quite so arduous.
  4. Greenery on an embroidery loop, via Under the Sycamore: Like we said last week in our wreath roundup, we love how wonderful these easy DIY wreaths look hanging in the kitchen window!
  5. Branches in vases, via Planete Deco: You may not want a full-size Christmas tree in the kitchen, but a few evergreen branches are wonderfully wintry, especially when grouped together on a window ledge or shelf.
  6. Christmas card display, via Greener Grass: Transform your kitchen cabinets into a pinboard for Christmas cards!
  7. Pinecones, via The Art of Doing Stuff: String a single pinecone around a utensil crock — so simple!
  8. A clementine and candle tray wreath, via Family Chic: Clementines are perfect (and delicious!) decorations this time of year.
