Holiday Gifts

I was pleasantly surprised to find some time to craft this holiday season. I went from thinking I would barely have time to send cards, to spending a week straight crafting ornaments and gifts.

Here are 3 handmade gift ideas for this holiday season!

1. Get ready for holiday parties! Dress up a bottle of champagne or wine in holiday spirit by crocheting a santa hat and scarf.

2. Mini Christmas sweater ornaments.

Sweaters

Snowman

3. Ice Skate Ornaments. These could also double as invites for an ice skating party!

Beary Happy Birthday

 

For a friend’s birthday at work we did a bear theme for her desk decorations. I was in charge of making the beehives and bees. After two days of paper mache and a failed attempt, I realized it was much much much easier to use paper lanterns.

Supplies needed: Yellow or orange lanterns, light orange streamers, craft glue, yellow craft pom poms, black pipe cleaners, and small googly eyes.

SuppliesFollow the ridges of the lantern to glue the streamers. I found it easier to cut the streamers into pieces beforehand.

StreamersTo assemble the bees use the black pipe cleaner to create stripes, and glue on the googly eyes. I glued the bees to the streamers, and used pins to hold the bees while the glue dried.

BeesAnd there you have it, a beary cool beehive!

hiveAnd..the birthday is not complete without a giant bear.

Confetti Birthday

I just don’t think you can go wrong with bright colors or confetti. Combining the two makes for a great birthday setup!

Confetti Banner

I used different sized hole punches to make( yes- make!) the confetti. Decorate the top of each flag with different colors and sizes.

Confetti Circles

I used the Marta Stewart circle cutter to make the larger circles for the hanging confetti.

Circles

Birthday confetti plus diamonds! Blue diamonds found here.

Another successful birthday celebration! I have a feeling these decorations will stay up for quite some time 🙂

Easter Egg Decorating

I’m excited to share today’s craft for Easter egg decorating because it’s so simple! Great results & little effort! Win-win! I have so many plastic Easter eggs, and although they come in pretty Spring colors, they need some excitement!

Easter

Used for this craft: plain plastic eggs. The ombre ones are from Target 🙂

MarthaGlitter

Assortment of Martha Stewart glitter.

Pearls

Recollections adhesive pearls.

Tape

The best part about this- no glue! This double sided scrapbooking tape is the best thing since sliced bread.

Remove the tape backing and sprinkle glitter over. Brush off the excess glitter.

Again- no glue! I used a variety of adhesive pearls and gems.

GlitterTape

Another option is Recollections glitter tape. I use a lot of these for scrapbooking and they look great wrapped around the eggs.

These eggs will look great in a basket of Easter grass or in a vase for a centerpiece. The plastic eggs I bought have holes at the top and the first thing that came to mind was stringing them together for a banner. So many possibilites!

Hoppy Easter!

Colorful Birthday Card

One of my favorite things to do is make cards- whether it’s for holidays, birthdays, thank yous or just because. Over time my scrapbook supplies have taken over my craft room, but you can never have too much! Once I found coordinating stickers, the rest of the card was made from miscellaneous colorful paper scraps.

Double up the circles, then glue to the cardstock. Arrange all the circles on the card before adding the stickers.
