101 Days of Christmas: Wrapping Paper Bows

Who needs store-bought bows with so many handmade bows to choose from? I first heard of making wrapping paper bows when Amanda from OhAmanda.com posted her gift wrap bows tutorial a few years ago, but it wasn't until this year that I got around to trying them for myself. I'm not sure why I waited…

101 Days of Christmas: Dried Orange Pomander

I love both the look of these pomanders and their delicious scent. And as promised, burlap is making an appearance once again in this project -- I told you I was obsessed! I first heard the term "orange pomander" in a historical novel about a sweets shop in London during the plague, and last year…

101 Days of Christmas: Knit Candy Cane Scarf

After I finished Jackson's Santa hat, I knew I wanted to try making a scarf. The fluffy red and white yarn I used were so pretty together that I couldn't resist making a candy cane scarf out of them! This is super easy, although it takes a bit longer than a hat just because of…

Gifts in a jar like this cranberry-orange quick bread mix are a lot of fun, and you can make them even more festive with these printable jar lid inserts, which slip right between the lid and band on a canning jar. {Or, if you're using repurposed jars and lids, try these covered jar lids instead!}…

101 Days of Christmas: Knit Baby Santa Hat

Over the summer, my girls became obsessed with fiber crafts -- knitting, crocheting, embroidering, cross-stitching, etc. My mom got our 6-year-old a set of round looms so that she could participate, and she quickly knit her first hat. She used the child size hat loom, leaving the baby size unused, and I couldn't wait to…

101 Days of Christmas: DIY Photo Canvases

DIY projects that come with a "simple and easy" promise don't always deliver, but I have to say that this project may be my favorite ever because it was not only simple and easy (truly!) but also turned out amazingly well. Photo canvases are such a fun home decor trend -- and we have given…

101 Days of Christmas: Felt Star Wand

I absolutely love felt projects because there are so many possibilities, and it is so, so, so easy to work with! This felt star was actually a gift for our second daughter on her third birthday, but we just recently came across it again (hence the crooked bow!). Our four-year-old was so excited to find…

101 Days of Christmas: Printable Treat Bag Tags

I love to package various homemade treats in cellophane treat bags. They're much less expensive than cookie tins, looks festive, easy to prepare and transport large batches, etc. My packaging usually includes a pretty ribbon tied around the bag and curled -- often with a hanging gift tag added -- but this year I wanted…
