Christmas Crafts

It's here... CHRISTMAS... but it's only December 1st.

I decided to prep for the holidays early!

I went ahead and went to JoAnn Fabrics as they were having a mega sale (50-70% off) of Christmas items over Thanksgiving weekend and the week before.

I purchased a bunch of classic silver bulbs, as well as some blue and gold bulbs.
Those are the colors of my church, but they also are just beautiful compliments of color, especially in a jar, Mason Jars, to be exact.

I found the Mason jars online on Craigslist... a steal! And I took ribbon to wrap around the top. Wahla... they look beautiful and elegant.

I also made a Christmas wreath for less than $10. I was inspired to make one after I went into a dozen different stores looking for a pretty wreath and COULD NOT believe the prices for the most simple wreath. So I decided to make my own!! This is all I used:

  • 1 wreath
  • Box of small bulbs from the dollar store (or even ikea maybe) - still super cheap $1.50
  • some little silver glittered holiday pieces ($0.79)
  • left over tulle I had in my basement
  • hot glue and hot glue gun

It turned out beautiful and I have it on my front door!!

This is how I bring in the holiday festivities!
