Hey everyone! What have you all been up to? The husband and I have been busy wrapping Christmas gifts & I wanted to show you have I have been using my free printable Christmas Tags (Found HERE), and hot glue gun snowflakes (Tutorial HERE) to help dress them up!



I bought a big giant roll of brown paper in the painters section at walmart for $7- and all our presents this year are being wrapped up in it. It's just so classic & I personally love it!

How to make Hot Glue Gun Snowflake Window Clings- an updated process!


So one of my most popular post to date (especially during Christmas) is my "Hot Glue Gun Snowflakes" (found HERE)


Originally, I glued the snowflakes right on to my windows. Some of them did peel off easily, but most of them took scrubbing to remove. With that said, and with the brilliant input of my lovely readers, I came up with a much better process that requires absolutely no clean up- every time!

Paper Owl Tutorial


Hey Everyone! Today I am sharing the last DIY taxidermy stuffed animal from June's Room.

I really wanted to do a bird for June's animal room, and my husband came up with the brilliant idea of an owl! June loves her owl & points up at it every night, saying, "Owl mommy!" I was worried that it might be too scary for a two year old to have above her bed, but apparently not for her! Haha! :)

DIY Pallet Wreath for all seasons!



 

Hey everyone! I have a fun tutorial for you today using a tool that I've been wanting to get my hands on for years: The Dremel Micro 8050! This baby is perfect for detailed carving on glass, stone, and wood. I had a pile of pallet boards just waiting to be made into something pretty. I wanted to make an "all seasons" wreath to go above my fireplace for Christmas. The fireplace part didn't work out because the short-sale we were buying fell through, but the sign turned out awesome!
