A Few Christmas Crafts

Have done a few new Christmas decor crafts this month. I made this Round Glitter piece for my Mom. I ordered the 12" rounds from Amazon. Used a Dollar Tree gift bag for the center and then glittered the edges. Sealed it with a spray sealer.

I like to make small projects using scrap 2x4 pieces. This little tree is just painted and the I Mod Podge scrapbook papers to the front.

These 2 sided blocks are so fun to make. This one will have Happy Thanksgiving on the reverse side.

This is one of favorite wine bottle projects I have done so far. I spray painted them white and then added vinyl letters (cut with the Cricut). I then spray painted them with the brown and orange paint. After they dried for about an hour I took off the vinyl letters.  Added some twine and this is the final project. LOVE THEM! Another simple and quick craft project.

Had to try doing a couple of the painted pumpkins. After a little 'hunt and search' for some cheap foam pumpkins, this is the final result. The splattered one I used an old toothbrush. Did this in my bathroom sink ... not a brilliant idea. Next time I will take it outside. The dotted one I just took a small dabber foam brush (not sure of that is what is called). They turned out cute and diffidently one of a kind. Another quick and simple craft project for this impatient crafter.

Got the inspiration for these cute pumpkin blocks from Pinterest.
Had an old piece of a 4x4 that I cut into 3 different sizes. Painted them orange and added a design to each. Glued on some craft leaves for a little more color.
I had some old sink knobs that I painted brown and glued to the top for the stems. Added some twine with a little bling at the end. Love how they turned out. Another simple and quick upcycled craft.

First Day of School

This was the first day of school sign I made for the Grandbaby. I used an 8x10 canvas sheet. I used vinyl where you write the information, this way we can use an erasable marker and use it again next year.

Baby Announcement Board

I made this hanging baby announcement board for a friend of mine. Her theme was 'Up Up and Away'
It turned out so wonderful.

Coffee Mugs

Tic Tac Toe

Here is a simple Tic Tac Toe game for the kiddos. I used a metal tray that I picked up at the Dollar Tree. I used washi tape to make the lines. Cut the shapes out of felt scraps. Added a little bling to the x's.

Onesies for the Babies

Here are a few of the onesies I made for a few new babies the past months.

2 Sided Block Decor

This is my first 2 sided block decor I did. It turned out great. 

Wooden Block Messages

Here a couple of wooden blocks I made with simple messages on them. They are painted and then distressed a little bit.

Simple Pillow Cover

For this project, I converted a canvas tote bag into a pillow. I cut off the strap and applied a cute little couple using HTV Vinyl. Added velcro to the top edge for easy removal to wash the cover.

Sonny and Cher

Love how this one turned out. A tribute to Sonny and Cher....You Got Me Babe.
I covered a canvas board with a sheet of thin metal. The letters are vinyl and I trimmed the edges with some black nails.
It is about 12 x30

Patriotic Decor

Yeah, I know this is a little late putting this new project up. I have been falling behind again....
This is on a canvas panel about 12x15. Just used vinyl and sealed it.

Canvas Wall Decor for Baby

I made these sweet little wall decor for the nursery. They are on a 6x6 canvas with vinyl and then coated with a sealer.
