Easy Burlap Christmas Trees

I wanted a few more handmade trees to go with the ones I made last week, so I decided to use some of the one material I have coming out of my ears – burlap. I have an absolute crap-ton of the stuff left over from my cousin’s wedding shower, and it’s too late to…

Easy Yarn & Glitter Trees

When I was a kid, my mom went all-out decorating for Christmas. I remember we’d go to school in the morning and return in the afternoon to an absolute winter wonderland. As we grew older, we’d tease her that “Santa barfed” all over the house, but we not-so-secretly loved how amazing everything looked. When my…

DIY Santa Hat Door Hanging

Even though this is a Christmas decoration, I want to make it clear that there is still a LOT of Turkey Respect in our house. This week the kids and I are making all the clichéd handprint turkey crafts and it’s going to be awesome. But I’m also looking ahead to the winter holidays because I think these…

They also went above and beyond this month, taking care of an unexpected problem in a way that made me so…

Making A Wyldstyle Costume

Not long after Annabel saw The Lego Movie she declared she wanted to be Wyldstyle for Halloween. Since the movie came out in February, I didn’t think that would actually happen. But here we are, a few weeks before Halloween, and she’s still firmly insisting on Wyldstyle. I started looking for costumes from The Lego Movie…

DIY Pumpkin Candlesticks

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to look at all of the fun Halloween decorations at different stores. Last week I was checking out an especially elaborate haunted table display when I spotted something pretty – a pair of glittery pumpkins on candlesticks. Unfortunately, when I asked about them,…
