Who doesn’t love candy, I sure do! I picked up some red sparkly felt a while ago at the craft store, it adds the perfect shine to this peppermint candy ornament. This ornament is fun with or without the green pin-stripe. The peppermint candy pattern is simple, and as always it is easier to use if printed on cardstock. The instructions are on the pattern. Enjoy your homemade Christmas ornament.
I saw this stacked felt Christmas tree on a friend’s tree last year. I thought it was so cute, I had to make one for my tree. The method is very simple, descending felt circles, stacked and sewn together. The work is a little bit tedious, but the outcome is worth it!
On the second day of Christmas hertoolbelt sent to you, a sweater owl and a mini-mitten on a wooden tree.
I love making cute little owls. I help out my friends at Capo and Stubs with the hand stitching on their cool owl earmuffs. This owl ornament is made from old recycled sweaters and felt. The back is scrap fur I had. If you don’t have these items, the owls are still so cute made from felt, and/or regular material.
Sing with me: On the first day of Christmas Hertoolbelt sent to you, a pair of mittens for a little wooden tree.
For each day of Christmas I’ll be posting an ornament for a cute wooden wall Christmas Tree (knock off from West Elm)
My friend, Jenny Frame has been making these woolen mittens for years. She was featured on a local TV show Studio 5. She also makes super cool ear muffs; you can see them at her store on etsy, capoandstubs.
Don’t you just love this time of year? Fall is in the air, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Tom Turkey is here to help you celebrate. This craft is great because it is versatile to adapt to whatever scrap materials you have around. Here is the pattern and how I put it together.
Do you love necklaces but have a hard time keeping them organized, untangled, and visible. Ya, me too! I love all of the jewelry display boards, frames, displays, etc but they take up so much space. This is a great solution because there is almost always space behind shirts/hanging pants in your closet, why not use it.
I saw this Halloween Witch idea at Swiss Days in Midway, Ut this summer. The witch was definitely my favorite Halloween decoration I saw. I wish I would’ve written down the booth name, so I could link to their witch, because it was cuter, with a lime green boa. I had fun making this witch, and I know you’ll enjoy it too. Here is a tutorial and template.
Replacing an old outdated light fixture can really give new ‘light’ to a space. My garage light fixtures never really did a great job at putting off much useful light, and then they began to rust. Luckily I saw these cute LED fixtures at Costco for $39.99 (I also saw them at Home Depot for $59.99 with a $20 mail in
rebate). Replacing light fixture is fairly easy and shouldn’t take much time.
For all of you handy peeps out there, do you ever find that you are making projects/crafts for family and friends and never keep one for yourself? I do that all of the time. My sister found this jewelry display board at iheartorganizing.blogspot.com that she wanted me to make. I’m happy to say that I still have one hanging in my closet!!! Here are plans for a simple frame that will create a space between the decorative grate and the wall, so your earrings can hang easily.
I started seeing these photo display boards a few years ago at a craft fair. Of course, they had to be next years Christmas projects, and they were a hit. Here are the plans for my version. There is a short and a tall board plan.
