DIY Christmas.

A few days later than planned and really close to Christmas I finally got a moment with all the chaos to post about some DIY Christmas crafting I've been working on for this year. Nothing spectacular but figured I'd share.

First up ornaments.

I bought 6 plastic clear ball ornaments at Michael's and Avery & I crafted with our thrift store $1 book and some mod podge....and of course glitter!


If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this one a month or so ago

Some we ripped and rolled paper and stuck it inside with some glitter. Some we put the book pages right on the outside of the ball and rolled in glitter.



I went to my scrap fabric for my next craft. I had some festive red dot leftover from Avery's birthday banner and just tied them around vases and jars and added a glitter snowflake. A simple little touch.


Avery and I also decorated out chalkboard wall one night. I drew, she erased...it all worked out in the end.
You'll notice I removed the "A" from "eat" to tie in a Christmasy saying.


Fun tip I heard from someone else on Instagram that if you wet the chalk before writing the colors come out brighter..totally true!

Next up, my twine trees.

I bought foam cones form the craft store and with twine I already had and my trusty glue gun. I wrapped and glued around and around and around. 


You can't mess this one up people. I also started a sequin one but ran out of length...maybe I'll finish it next year.

This last one I can't take credit for but wanted to share. My cousin actually made these log reindeers a few years ago for everyone.

Just a small tree trunk cut into 2 different lengths for the head and body. Then drill holes for the legs and antlers. Use thin branches for the legs and twigs for the antlers. And if you want to get fancy tack a small tail on too!


 We'll I've got some wrapping and cleaning and cooking to do. Tomorrow I'm delivering a piece of furniture so I'll try to snag some pictures of that before it goes back home.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Merry Christmas! Your craftiness leaves me in awe, especially that you find time to do this time of the year!!! You are my hero for that simple fact!

I have one more run to the grocery and then lots of wrapping (Santa needs a bit of help in that area!) tonight so I can enjoy tomorrow with friends and family.

I hope your celebration is filled with blessings & joy!
