In case you didn’t get a chance to stop by this week, here is what I shared.
While I look for my iron and start wrapping gifts, enjoy the projects in the spotlight this week.
This is seriously the best DIY toy I’ve ever seen. A custom built busy box for a little boy by Arch. The board was loving cut and rounded and then painted. Activities include switches, knobs, a clock dial and a functioning doorbell. Definitely something to treasure and keep forever.
If these little trees by JacolynMurphy don’t scream “Merry” I don’t know what does. I love miniature bottle brush trees and pompoms! Put them together and I’m swooning!
There were loads of amazing sweet treats linked up this week but I have a weakness, and I mean “can’t stop eating it if it’s around weakness” for English Toffee. The Pin Junkie shares her homemade English Toffee with us.
The smells of Christmas are wonderful and these homemade mulling spice gift jars by Homespun with Love are so pretty. Can’t you just smell the aroma of cinnamon and star anise? Heavenly.
Setting For Four shows us how to make an Adirondack Chair. I’m not quite up to chair making in my diy skills but bravo to them for making such a fantastic project. The chair looks so fantastic and cozy with the plaid pillow and pretty trimmings.
I thought this project by Agus Yornet was so unique. A table top Christmas tree made our of crocheted bottle caps. Super cute and original.
Homey Oh My blows me away again with another beautiful project. DIY clay ornaments and hand drawn designs using a Sharpie. Reminiscent of my childhood salt dough ornaments, except my salt dough ornaments weren’t gorgeous like these.
If you’re a wine drinker, here’s a fun project to use up all those wine corks. Virginia Sweet Pea cut down the corks and created this pretty snowflake ornament. The ribbon and glitter add a splash of holiday bling!
Here’s another clay ornament that I love. This one by Saraccino is just beautiful. The winter scene was created by using a reverse of a stamp and then painted it a rich blue color. Something to treasure and I love that it’s dated. Make a special ornament every year and imagine the growing collection.
In my opinion – best upcycled sweater project I’ve ever seen. Reposhture creates a tree skirt from old sweaters. To say “I love it” is an understatement. Fantastic!
Rental Revival shares her modern white Christmas tree but it’s hard to focus on the tree because her dog is so dog-gone cute!
