So I mentioned the other day I was trying to do some “homemade” gifts this year. I thought I’d share a) some projects I’ve been working on b) some awesome websites I have come across lately and c) a new annual craft I’ll be doing.
So, Item A: Projects.
I have made a couple hair bow holders for two of my nieces. This one is Aubri’s. It will match her room perfectly and I can’t wait to give it to her!
I also started making this peppermint garland, except I didn’t use large circles. I found about 3-4″ wooden circles at Jo-Ann for 29cents each and bought 20 of them. It’ll still make a long garland but use more ‘peppermints.’
Tonight I came across this tutorial to re-fashion a sweater into a hat/scarf/mittens. I remembered that I had a cute Gap sweater that had some holes in it and I’d saved it hoping to find something to refashion it into. Coincidentally, it is the same sweater that Porter wore for Thanksgiving last year. Isn’t that hilarious?
I plan to give this to Hudson for Christmas. I thin he’ll love it!
