Make great decorations for Valentines's Day using Pringles Lids. They are clear so they make great decorations to hang from a chandelier, window or wall.
I always seem to have an extra bundt pan. I pick them up at the thrift store all the time. I turned this one into a candy cane striped wreath with a poinsettia in the middle and scalloped ribbon on the edges.
I am so excited to participate in this fabulous Lamps Plus / Hometalk challenge. I was provided with a beautiful fillable glass lamp, and decided to decorate it with my favorite glitter in glass ornaments and a cute snowflake bunting. These lamps are so much fun, and you can change the look of yours with ease!
Using dollhouse doors, miniature scale accents and supplies from miniatures.com, we've created a warm and inviting Elf door for the elves that might visit from the North Pole. Small doors that appear overnight help add to the wonderment of the season and allow imaginations to flourish.
**PLEASE be sure to keep small pieces and parts out of reach of little hands and paws that might be excited to touch and play with tiny pieces and parts.**
I love the look of pallet projects, and I really wanted to make a wood pallet Christmas tree this year. But, without any pallets, I had to improvise. We had an old, broken toddler bed collecting dust in the garage, and I noticed that the slats were the perfect size for this project. It sounds weird, but it worked!
I love the idea of having a host of fun holiday activities planned out for the days leading up to Christmas. The only problem is that with the hustle and bustle of the season it can be hard to carve out time for those little extras, let alone present them all together in a pretty package.
That's why I created an advent calendar that was super simple to put together. I think it's absolutely vital to make time with your family to enjoy the season. Find the time to make happy memories together that will last a lifetime. I promise you won't regret it!
It's time to start getting ready for holiday gift giving and finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list. A group of 30 bloggers (including me!) has gotten together to give you ideas that all fit in a mason jar and I'm sharing ideas for Cupcake Lovers.
No one likes hanging outdoor lights. Do they?? Especially in Northern climates? So I couldn't blame my husband when he said he was NOT going to spend hours or days hanging Christmas lights outside. So I had to get creative and find a way to do it quicker and make sure they are straight! And believe me I found a way....
I'm in the process of renovating my son's room. I put up roman shades in his room and took down the old blinds that were up. After I took the blinds down, I realized that I could make them in to a pretty cool mirror. So, that's what I did. The project ended up costing me under $7 and took a few hours of my time. I'm in love with the outcome.

Do you have an nice stack of scrap wood in the garage? I recently participated in a scrap wood challenge organized by the Sawdust Girl, Sandra. I wanted to make something with a Christmas theme and came up with the idea of building a Christmas tree shaped address sign. Follow along for steps on building one of your own.
After decorating my Christmas Mantel with fresh greenery and garden-inspired items, including a magnolia garland, I thought I'd share how to make one of these...just in time for Christmas! Just click on the link...
Let’s just admit it that we all like to receive gifts but these Christmas present pillows are just as adorable. I love wrapping presents as well and these pillows just put me in the mood even more. I have them sitting in my recliner near the Christmas tree and can’t help looking over thinking they are presents and should be under the tree.
The season is the perfect time to create in your home. Try this project by Jennifer Hadfield from Tatertots & Jello to add a little holiday spirit to your home.
I have signs of quotes all over my house. I buy them every chance I get and I especially load up on them when I can find a good sale. I’ve even made a few of my own and you can check out that tutorial here. What I didn’t have were any signs or quotes outside in my yard. Yes, I know there are other ways to decorate my yard. I could try gnomes, trolls, or even those cute little stone rabbits and frogs, but that’s just not me. I needed something that would bring a little piece of my home outside and what better time than now? All of my neighbors have their yards decorated for Christmas and they all look so nice. I’ve never really decorated the outside of my house for the holidays, besides hanging a wreath on the front door. This year I wanted to make a change, so I made this adorable little sign to go with a few other decorations. Enjoy!
It's time to start getting those Christmas gifts in order! A lot of my crafty friends love to scrapbook so I have put together a fun little gift idea that will help them with their scrapbooking and looks so pretty that you don't even need to wrap it!
Half the fun of giving a gift is wrapping it, don't you agree? There are so many fun ways to personalize it and make it unique. Like these Rustic Wrappings that are SO easy to make!
Are you thinking about decorating for Christmas yet? This is my first Holiday project so far. It is for our Rock Your Knock Off Holiday Edition Tour, where several of my favorite bloggers and I find high-end (and very over-priced) Holiday items and recreate them for a fraction of the cost.
I decided to make these cozy sweater stockings:
Hey there Friends! There's a super fun tour going on this week in Blogland called "Swap it Like it's Hot" where we head to the thrift store armed with $10 to find something that we will then mail to another creative blogger to make over. In turn we also receive a thrifty package of goods. Today I'm sharing what I received and what it looks like now!
Here is what Kimm from Reinvented sent to me:
