It’s that time of year again. I’m sure you’ve already heard the Christmas music and everyone in your neighborhood has probably decked out their homes with lights and decorations by now. If you can’t tell, I’m just getting around to the little bit of holiday decorating I do every year.
This adorable chalkboard sign is just the beginning. I like to DIY my holiday decorations, if you hadn’t already guessed. Typically, I make my decorations and then give them away because I don’t want to store them away for a year. Read the whole post
This post is part of The Craft Challenge. You can read more about it here.
This month the theme for the craft challenge is Thanksgiving/Christmas crafts. For this theme I chose to make Christmas stocking stuffer gift bags. You know, for the little things that suck to wrap, like chapstick, money, food, hand sanitizer, etc. That sort of stuff would be perfect to wrap up in a cute little gift bag like this.
You will only need a few materials and probably won’t spend more than half an hour on these (unless you have a ton of people to gift to). Read the whole post
Christmas is almost here and I’m betting there are a few of you who haven’t put all of your decorations on your tree yet. If not, you should make these glitter Christmas ball ornaments. It’s a super easy DIY project and you can even do it with your kids. You’re going to have a big glitter mess with, or without them, so you should just enjoy the bonding experience. If you let them pour the glitter in and shake it up, they’ll love it! Read the whole post
Some people are really hard to buy Christmas gifts for. There is one such person on my list this year and I’ve scoured the internet looking for a good idea. Nothing.
Later, while sulking on Pinterest I found this really great recipe for candied pecans on Paint Chips and Frosting (it’s a neat blog so take some time to check it out if you head over there). If you know me, you know that I’ll only cook if I have to so, naturally, I was a little apprehensive about trying to make these. Read the whole post
I’ve always hated buying people gift cards. It’s not that dislike receiving them, but it’s like saying I really have no idea what you like so here’s a gift card. If that person is important enough for you to buy something for, then you should have an idea of what they enjoy. Soooo I’m here to help you out.
Everyone likes a DIY project that’s cheap and easy. I don’t think it gets any easier than this. This cute DIY snowman magnet took no more than 5 minutes to make (excluding drying time) and costed less than $1. How’s that for do-it-yourself Christmas decor?

All of these materials can be bought at the Dollar Store.
Every year, my family and I make a Christmas Wish List on Amazon so that we can actually buy each other gifts that we want rather than guessing. I’m all about it, but I know that some people enjoy buying what they think their parents or significant other would like.
For those of you who are looking for Christmas gift ideas, I like to help you out. Over the past few months I’ve been compiling gifts ideas into a wish list on Etsy so that I can share them with you here. Read the whole post
It doesn’t look like it, but these Christmas tree earrings were actually very easy to make. They would make a nice last-minute gift idea for some of the ladies of your list that you have yet to buy for. Granted, it is a seasonal idea, but you could turn them into ornaments as well, if you made them larger. These are probably about 2 inches tall.
