This is BY FAR the easiest way to make an ornament wreath. I tried making one earlier in the week with glass ornaments and hot glue and let me just say… that was a big, giant nightmare. Make it easy on yourself and stick to the plastic ornaments and don’t even look at the glue. I used about 70 ornaments to make this wreath. I have about 30 of the smallest ornaments left in my package and I’m thinking about making another with just the small ones.
It’s almost September and Christmas is just right around the corner. I love when I see my Pinterest feed fill with all the different Christmas crafts. Last year I made some burlap Christmas trees after finding some for sale at my local craft store. Read how easy these are to make and how adorable they turn out. They are perfect for your sofa table, fireplace mantel or shelves when decorating for the holidays.
It is Christmas in July, right? I wanted to share these stockings I made a couple of years ago for my hubby, myself and our cats – and now that we have two new Scottie puppies I want them to have stockings as well! I went ahead and took step by step photos this time so that anyone else can make their own stockings too. I loved the elf stocking shape and could not find stockings in the store that I liked or where reasonably priced so I decided ‘Why not try to make my own?’
In honor of Valentine’s Day being a month away I am sharing a Valentine’s gift that I’ve done in the past. My, “52 Reasons Why I Love You” playing cards.
My husband is working late tonight and has been all week. I feel like I have hardly seen him! 😦 I wanted to do something special for him because he had been working so hard. I saw an idea on Pinterest about using tiny liquor bottles to tape onto skewers and placing into a basket. It’s called, “The Man’s Bouquet.” Instead of flowers or roses, they get all of their favorite things. The best part about this gift is that you can personalize it to fit your husband’s, dad’s, brother’s, friend’s favorite things.
Below is a picture of my materials. I bought a normal flower-pot (which my husband doesn’t know yet but I will be taking back to put flowers in later, I just didn’t want to get something we’d throw away after this). I also got: peanuts, grass filler, a foam disk, wooden skewers, variety of liquor bottles (small), a 5 hour energy shot, gum, beef jerky, chap stick (my husband is obsessed), and scratch offs. I also have a picture of scrapbook paper and camo-eggs in the picture but I ended up not using them. I thought it would be cute to put sweet notes or handwritten ‘coupons’ inside the eggs for him to open, but after putting this craft together there was no room for them.
