Time is up! It’s the day before Christmas, and I sure hope you all have finished all your holiday shopping. If you have not, I would not want to trade places with you. I have a feeling those stores are going to be crazy, and very congested. Hopefully you can just relax and spend sometime at home with your family and friends. If you have some spare time, and would like to do something creative then your in luck. Try creating this Martini Glass and Ornaments Centerpiece. Toast the holidays with a bright and blinged out centerpiece that will be the talk of the table. This would be a great addition to have at your Christmas dinner tomorrow. This craft was designed by, Julie Lewis. Click here to see how this was created.
The clock is winding down, with only 4 days to go til the big day there is still plenty of time to get in the holiday spirit. A great way to get in the spirit is decorating your Christmas tress. Many of you have done this already probably, however I have heard that many decorate their trees in the days leading up to Christmas. In case you are looking to add some more ornaments to your tree, try creating these Vintage Ornaments. Julie Lewis designed these vintage ornaments. Aren’t these ornaments so unique and cute? All you need is some FolkArt paint, and Mod Podge. Click here to learn how to create these crafty ornaments.
I am sure that you all are well aware that not every gift you give needs to be bought from the mall. Many people are hand-making their gifts to give to their loved ones. Over the years I have received some beautifully crafted gifts that completely blew me away, from how nice they were. There are several different gifts you can make, but in case you are looking for a simple yet chic gift to give, try these Ribbon Ornaments. Ornaments make a great gift, because they can be used for many years to come. Handmade ornaments can also hold sentimental value, which make them priceless. Create these Ribbon Ornaments by using Gallery Glass. Click here to see how these were made.
