Welcome to day two of 25 Days of Christmas! To see day one, click here. And to follow along on the interactive advent calendar, click here.25-Days-BannerI can’t believe that December is here and we are already two days into our advent calendar. This is my most favorite time of the year! And, I’m so excited to be a part of this wonderful count down to Christmas.

I’m sharing my winter wreath today! It’s the perfect addition to Christmas decor that will transition nicely into winter. So here goes.

DIY Faux Fur Winter Wreath

Fur Wreath

Supplies needed:

Straw wreath (got mine at a yard sale for .50! yay)

Glue gun and glue sticks

Faux fur (about 1/4  yard)

Ribbon
quick winter wreathSo the directions here are really simple. Lay out your faux fur in strips about 8 inches wide.fur winter wreath

 Lay your wreath on top of the strip of fur with the fur facing down. Fold the fur around the wreath and glue to the wreath back side of the wreath. You’ll need to snip the fur every inch or so to make sure the fur lays flat on the wreath. Once you’ve glued the first piece onto the wreath cut another strip about eight inches wide to complete the next section. Be sure to get the seams lined up as best as you can. They don’t have to be perfect because once you fluff up the fur you won’t see the seam.

I’m going with a silver and gold color scheme this year so I decided on a gold ribbon. Keep in mind that you can always change out the ribbon when you transition your wreath from Christmas/holiday to winter wreath.

Don’t forget that is this a 25 day affair with some wonderfully talented ladies!  You’ll have to check the advent calendar tomorrow to see day three!

Washi Tape Holiday Wall Hanging

I hope you guys aren’t sick of holiday crafts yet! Because I have a really fun one today. This one costs me absolutely nothing because I had everything on hand. Aren’t those the best kind of projects?

Feast your eyes on my old frame turned holiday wall hanging!

I’ve had this frame for ages. I can’t recall where it came from. Maybe Goodwill. It used to be black before it got the spray paint treatment a few months ago. I love spray paint by the way. If I don’t like something anymore it gets a coat of paint and it’s brand new.

Anyway, after my Washi Tape Gift Tags, I wanted to find some more uses for my washi tape this season and I thought it would be perfect to turn this frame into a festive wall hanging.

To create this little wall hanging, I simply taped washi tape to all four sides of the frame. Then I hung these mini ornaments (don’t you love that glittery one?) by hot glueing bakers twine to the back of the frame. Lastly, I hot glued a little piece of ribbon to the top for hanging.

I love this project because I had all the supplies here at home. And, when the season’s over – I can easily peel off the washi tape, and the hot glue off the back and it becomes a frame again. How cool is that?

And here it is hanging on my wall. What do you think?

[DIY] Dec. 25 Canvas Pillow

It’s non stop Christmas around here. Miss P and I are having a blast. I’ve been working on so many decor projects that I’ve totally slacked on my homemade gifts. Anybody else? Luckily today’s project is so quick and easy that it takes no time to whip up. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve seen a sneak peek of this canvas pillow. Well today, I’m going to show you how to make one of your own!

I have been wanting to try out some heat transfer paper for the longest time now. Thanks to the black friday deal I was able to nab some at a decent price. When it arrived I took it out of the box right away and immediately got started on this pillow!

Supplies:

1/4 y. canvas fabric and coordinating thread  (The pillow measures only 12×12 so it doesn’t take up much fabric at all.)

scissors

pillow stuffing

black heat transfer material

stencil

Start by cutting two squares approximately 12×12 in. Since you aren’t fitting a pillow form, the size can be as big or as small as you’d like, just be sure to cut your squares the same size.

Cut and place your heat transfer material onto fabric according to your package directions.

Once the transfer has been ironed on, you are ready to sew. With right sides facing together, sew edges leaving a small gap at the bottom to stuff. After the pillow is stuffed you can either do a blind stitch to close your gap or use your sewing machine. I used my sewing machine.

That’s it! Now you have a lovely holiday pillow to adorn your sofa with! So festive right?
