12 Days of Christmas DIY Giveaway Day 9: Upcycled Gift Box!

  ***UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Lena! Thanks for entering everyone. Be sure you enter all the other giveaways that are live while you still can!*** Well it's time to take a break from decorations and get in the gift giving mood. Last year's Pillow Box gift card holder inspired this years "Upcycled Gift Box". Don't forget to enter to win your very own at the end of the post. Growing up there was a long running joke (and still is) that you never believe the box your gift comes wrapped in. If our gift really was reflected on the label on the box, I would have gotten so many boxes of Cheerios and Shredded Wheat over the years that my pantry would STILL be stocked to...

12 Days of Christmas DIY Giveaway Day 8: FAUX Mercury Glass Ornaments

  ***UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Michael! Thanks for entering everyone. Be sure you enter all the other giveaways that are live while you still can!*** I know, I know, "Another Ornaments? Is this the 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments?" but I just couldn't help it. This project ended up SO different from how I first planned it months ago. I had the clear glass bulbs, the pricey mirror spray paint and the best of intentions. Well things took a very quick and swift change in direction. The more I thought about it, and especially after reading the spray paint instructions, I thought about it and decided against my original thought of painting the inside of the bulb. Authentic mercury glass often has a bit of a...

12 Days of Christmas DIY Giveaway Day 5: Angel Wing Ornaments!

  ***UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Falon! Thanks for entering everyone. Be sure you enter all the other giveaways that are live while you still can!*** Day 1 of our 12 Days of Christmas DIY Giveaway was an ornament so, 4 days later seems like a good time to squeeze another ornament in and I'm sure it won't be the last before this week is done. Angel wings are kinda trending right now and for good reason. They're different, they're elegant and give interest to your decor. It's only fitting that as we celebrate the birth of Jesus and the host of angels who harked his arrival that we sneak a little representation for them in there. The Nativity scene has their angel, why limit the...

But Fear not, I'll show you how I got there. First grab your supplies: For the roses I cut 3½" wide strips of burlap from selvage to selvage (across the full width of the burlap). I took that strip and cut it in half so that I...

  ***UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Cindy! Thanks for entering everyone. Be sure you enter all the other giveaways that are live while you still can!*** Hello, and welcome to day three, or as I like to call it. The easy day craft. When some people "Deck the Halls" they do it to the 9's and go all out. Some people just put up a tree. I like to think of myself sitting somewhere in the middle. The hubbs has an Aunt who would go all out this time of the year to the point that she even had a seasonal shower curtain complete with snowman. The bathroom is typically a place reserved for "private business" and the thought of decorating never crossed my...
