hello hello. i am back with more cute DIYs for Holiday gift giving! If you missed project one you can see it right here.
(thanks so much katie! i definitely want to make one of these for my special man.)
3. Crafty Mini Holiday Tree by Holly Sarah
You can purchase little pine trees at your local florist or grocery store, for a very reasonable price. Usually $4-$9 (the one I got was already sprayed with silver glitter, how cute!) You can easily "spruce" it up (hehe) with some craft supplies that you have kicking around! I decided to hang buttons from the branches using thread, and crochet a simple chain garland with white yarn to go around it. I topped the tree with a black velvet ribbon bow, and voila! It's sure to bring a smile, and brighten the day of the recipient.
Other ideas for decorating your mini tree:
- paper cut snowflakes
- ribbon garland
- hand cut felt shapes
- baked sculpey figures
- the possibilities are endless!
I hope everyone has a fabulous Christmas season... and Happy Hollydays!
4. Painted Vintage Owl by Elsie
Vintage owls made of wood or porcelain are easy to find at local thrift shops, flea markets or on Etsy. When you are shopping for one be sure to check it thoroughly for cracks and chips. These cute accessories can be easily modernized with spray paint (on porcelain) or acrylic paint (on wood). Create one or a little collection as a fun home decor gift.
The above example is a wall hanging piece like these...
5. Felt Oven Mitt by Emma
[for full instructions look here.] SO cute!
here's a sneak peek at my mini wreath from my next post...
ps. Style School is close to capacity (selling like pancakes, if you will...). However, Leigh-Ann and I have decided to keep registration open until Christmas because we've received so many e-mails about people wanting to give & receive the class as a gift (yay!). We think the class makes a great gift too, so if you purchase a spot (or if someone purchases one for you) before Christmas we are now including a cute gift certificate that you can print out so you have something to actually wrap & give! After Christmas registration will be closed, so please don't delay if you have your heart set on a spot. We won't repeat this class. We have full info about Style School here. Or you can contact Leigh-Ann with questions (or if you've already purchased the class as a gift you can request a gift certificate print out!) LA (AT) redvelvetart.com Thanks!
