Happy Easter! Bunny Ornaments

For those of you celebrating Easter today, I hope that you are having a wonderful holiday!

I wanted to share a quick Easter craft project. I few weeks ago I found these little bunny ornaments at a dollar store. The ornaments came in a package with primary color paints, but I set aside the paints in the package and used some acrylic craft paints that I had on hand to paint the rabbits. Continue reading

DIY Christmas Ornaments: Plastic Utensil Snowflakes

Hi, I hope that everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving this past week had a wonderful holiday! I had a fun holiday spending time with family and cooking up a storm in the Atlanta area. My husband was in charge of making macaroni and cheese, potato salad, and stuffing and I was responsible for red velvet cupcakes, sweet potato dinner rolls, and sweet potato cinnamon breakfast rolls (for the morning after Thanksgiving). We also helped my father-in-law brine a turkey. The turkey ended up being the one of the best turkeys that I have ever had, which is saying a lot because I generally dislike turkey and fill up on sides on Thanksgiving.

Although I have been posting Christmas ornaments and crafts for a couple of weeks now, now that Thanksgiving is over I am in full Christmas craft mode! Today I am excited to be visiting Allison at A Glimpse Inside Blog.

I hope that you’ll stop by Allison’s blog to see how I transformed silver colored plastic utensils from Thanksgiving dinner into snowflake Christmas tree ornaments.

DIY Ornaments: Salt Dough Hummingbirds

During the summer, my mother enjoys watching the hummingbirds outside of her kitchen window.  She always seems a bit sad when it is time to put away the feeder for the winter and looks forward to the birds return in the spring.  For the holidays, I thought I’d bring her a little early cheer and make her a couple of hummingbird ornaments for her tree.

DIY Christmas Ornaments: Clothespin Stars

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am thankful to be able to spend the day with family and friends.

This week has gotten away from me. Jaime and I have been busy getting ready to host Thanksgiving, but now that the harvest rolls, sweet potato pies, red velvet cupcakes, pumpkin bread, and sweet potato casserole have been made, I wanted to post a quick project — clothespin star Christmas ornaments.

DIY Christmas Ornaments: String or Twine Balls

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  I made some more Christmas ornaments this past weekend that I am excited to share with you today.  These string covered ornaments were easy to make and came together fairly quickly.  I made six ornaments in less than two hours while watching TV.  These probably would have come together even faster, if I had not kept getting sucked into the shows.

Twine OrnamentsThis is the third post in my DIY Christmas Ornaments series.  So if you are just tuning in and missed my earlier ornament posts, here are the links to my clothespin reindeer and salt dough snowflakes.  I have quite a few additional ornaments that I am looking forward to sharing with you in the next couple of weeks.  To make sure that you don’t miss any of my DIY ornament posts, please consider subscribing to my blog by clicking on the envelope icon to the right and entering your email address or following me on Pinterest.
