Garland has become something we can use all year round. From birthday banners to wedding flair, it’s a great way to add a creative element to your home and event decor!

For this DIY we are stringing together a winter tree garland that you can leave up the entire season.

White with gold accents create a neutral, yet inviting color scheme that will pair well with your existing holiday decorations. It’s all about creating pieces you can use and reuse, time and time again!

You will need:

White and Gold acrylic paint

Twine

Thick cardboard or craft wood (You can find this at most craft stores)

Gold Glitter

 

Step One: Cut your cardboard or craft wood into 10 trees. Here is a stencil you can print: Free Tree Stencil

Step Two: Cut a slit up the bottom of five trees and a slit down the top of five trees.

For the five trees that have the slit on the top, punch two holes, this is where you will feed in your twine later.

Step Three: Paint your trees white

Step Four: Let it dry

Step Five: Brush your gold paint across each tree in various spots, there’s no wrong way to do this, so have fun!

Step Six: Add glitter (we love lots of glitter!)

Step Seven: Feed your twine & hang it up!

We’ve teamed up with California Country Gal to bring you a delicious holiday table favorite! Her company specializes in starch free, grain free bread mixes, and other auto-immune friendly treats.

Check out her website here: California Country Gal

I always make a ton of cranberry sauce for the holidays because it keeps well, takes minutes to make and is so easy to do there’s just no reason to buy canned.  BUT when I’m a lazy gal, opening a can works here too.  The raw (enzyme rich!) ingredients in this salad make it delightfully refreshing and even better the next day for breakfast.

CHIA CRANBERRY SALAD

Serves 10-12

INGREDIENTS

Sweetener to equal 1 cup sugar.  I used 1 cup erythritol

1 cup organic sour cream

2 tablespoons Mamma Chia organic chia seeds

2/3 teaspoon organic cinnamon

  1. Line a jello mold or large bowl with plastic wrap or coat with mild tasting oil or cooking spray.
  2. In a small saucepan, stir together the erythritol and gelatin.
  3. Slowly stir in the cherry juice. Warm and stir over low heat until dissolved.  Set aside to cool.
  4. Chop and de-seed the orange and put into your blender.
  5. Add half the cranberries to the blender.
  6. When the juice/gelatin mixture is cooled a bit, add to the blender and blend until the orange is in small pieces.
  7. Add the rest of the cranberries and pulse to chop, set aside.
  8. In a large bowl stir together the rest of the ingredients.
  9. Stir in the contents of the blender until well combined.
  10. Pour into the prepared bowl or mold and refrigerate until set, about 3 hours.

This delightful breakfast for chia-mpions will be sure to fill your hungry belly! Thanks to one of our favorite vegetarian Instagrammers groundedgoddesskitchen for showing us how to create these scrumptious Vegan Buckwheat Pomegranate Pancakes – a chia-licious breakfast recipe for every soul to enjoy!

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I love making this buckwheat pancake recipe on weekends and adding whatever I have on hand. This time, I added pomegranate seeds, unsweetened coconut, raw almond butter and an extra dash of cinnamon. They’re hearty but light and not too sweet. I hope you’ll love them as much as I do!

INGREDIENTS:  (Recipe serves 1 – feel free to double or triple if making for others.)

For Batter:

  • 1/3 cup buckwheat flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp Mamma Chia Organic Black Chia Seeds
  • 1 scoop vanilla plant based protein powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • Nutmeg, to taste
  • Cinnamon, to taste

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Simply mix the listed ingredients together to create your batter, letting it sit for 3-5 minutes while your non-stick skillet is warming up.
  2. Once non-stick skillet is warm, add your batter and cook for 2-3 minutes. Make sure to add the banana slices in before flipping. You’ll know they’re ready to flip once bubbling and the bottom edges start to brown. After cooking for another minute or so (once flipped), they’re ready!

Enjoy!

Mamma Chia Holiday BottlesMamma Chia Holiday Bottles

Have your very own winter wonderland in your home this year with these DIY recycled Mamma Chia bottles. You can create this magical piece with any of our beverage bottles (we used our Chia Energy and Chia Vitality Beverage bottles) to dazzle your guests this holiday season. This inexpensive DIY project will bring joy and peace to your home, as well as, Mamma Earth.

Mamma Chia Holiday Bottles

What you need:

  • 1 Can of Primer
  • All-Purpose Spray Adhesive (we used Aleene’s Tacky Spray)
  • Newspaper
  • Epsom Salt
  • 3 Empty Mamma Chia Bottles
  • Holiday Picks (any holiday stems of your choice)

Extra Décor:

  • Silver Plate/Tray
  • Votive Candles
  • Ornaments

Instructions:

  1. Peel the label off the bottle.  No need to worry about the sticky residue left behind the primer will cover it.
  2. Protect your surface with newspaper and begin to spray each glass bottle evenly with primer. Spray at least 2-3 layers to make sure bottle is evenly coated, waiting until bottles are completely dry before adding a new layer. (We recommend to do this part outside)
  3. Spread out a thick layer of Epsom salt onto a sheet of newspaper. Spray one bottle at a time with tacky spray and immediately roll it across the Epsom salt until satisfied with the frosted layer. Repeat the remaining bottles.
  4. Arrange your holiday picks into the bottles anyway you wish.
  5. Optional: Place bottles onto a silver plate/tray and add any extra décor that appeals to you. Sprinkle a dash of Epson salt around the tray and enjoy!
