Reader Favorites...The Best of 2015

Happy New Year!  It's time for a new beginning and another year! However, I always like to take a look back over the previous year to see which posts were the most popular...just to give me an idea of what you, my readers, like to see here at Confessions of a Plate Addict! are my top ten posts...the best of 2015! 

Although this one was actually published at the end of 2014, this project got more views than any other in DIY DOLLAR TREE SNOW VILLAGE! It definitely heads the list of easy and inexpensive projects, too!

Coming in at number two was another super easy and inexpensive NO-SEW FABRIC WREATH! All you have to do is tie it!

Another no-sew project was my BURLAP easy little addition to your fall décor!

Coming in at number four...another version of my "just tie it" fabric STARS AND STRIPES BURLAP WREATH...perfect for those patriotic holidays!

Number five was done in cooperation with Hometalk...with over 20 RESTORATION HARDWARE INSPIRED PROJECTS all in one place, including a few of my own!

I teamed up with a group of my fellow francophiles for our Country French Design series. My tips for styling SHELVES...COUNTRY FRENCH STYLE came in at number six! 

Another post from the same series came in at number best tips for DECORATING WITH VINTAGE FRENCH IMAGES! And, as always, the free graphics are included with each of the projects!

And it came as no surprise that yet another post from our Country French Design series ranked number eight...FIVE WAYS TO BRING PROVENCE INTO YOUR HOME...a how-to guide for adding the warm, sunny look of Provence to your décor!

Number nine was another project with a patriotic STARS & STRIPES RAG BALL FILLER! It's another hit that is easy and inexpensive!

And finally, coming in at number ten, TEN WAYS TO GET A HEAD START ON FALL, my favorite season!

 And Baby Kitty says to stay tuned because we have lots of easy and inexpensive projects planned for 2016 as well plus more ideas for adding that Country French look on a budget!

I would like to also take this opportunity to thank each of you, my readers, for the love and support that you bring to my blog each day! Without you, none of this would be possible! So I am wishing a happy and healthy New Year to each one of you and looking forward to spending more time with you in 2016!

  4. Debbie, these are all amazing projects. I've pinned this for future reference - thank you, and Happy New Year.

  5. Good Afternoon, Debbie, snow village was number one for us- When I showed your DIY Dollar Tree Village to my dear wonderful husband (DWH), out to the store he went and purchased 12 different houses that sat all summer in the garage. Well, he spray painted them white in December. The search was on for additional snow of some kind for the roofs. Not an easy task, as the stores had sold out of what they use on the village houses by the time we started looking. So far DWH has used clear nail polish (mine) and sprinkled glitter on it, but still does not show up well. I want more "umph" so think maybe I will re-glitter using Mod Podge like you. Just a beautiful display with the little trees all around. Judy C in NC

  9. Loved looking back at all of your great projects! My favorite was the burlap pumpkins (and your sweater/shirt pumpkins) - I made 10 or 12 of them of all types of fabrics to use in my fall decorating. I am planning to make more in the coming year to share with friends! Looking forward to more great projects in the year ahead. Blessings to you and happy new year!
