Pinterest is definitely a DIY-ers dream.
Were I not a procrastinator, I would have been able to make many more of the beautiful, simple things I pinned this season.
But one of them really grabbed me and I had to try it since I had all the stuff.
The original pin is here, and this is my version.
The circle behind them is shimmery white cardstock, and it's hanging with white twine. The star is cut with the Stars #2 die from Silver Glimmer paper. I painted them with Apple Barrel Paints. There are a bunch of different shapes of old fashioned clothespins you can find in bulk, like these.
I love the simplicity of the symbols. So sweet.
I hope you're in that phase of the holidays where you are enjoying some of your hard work and preparation!
This afternoon, we are kicking off a week of Christmas vacation with the second annual wrapping party at my sister's. We provide wrapping paper, tape, bows, ribbon, tables, music and food, a DIY tag craft table and assistance for the neighbors so that everyone can wrap presents in a relaxing setting where they don't have to hide gifts from the kids or do it after everyone is in bed. It's a really, fun, festive little thing we started last year and everyone loved it, so it's year two!
I guess I should go prep the tags, eh?
A gift without a tag is just downright primitive. :)
Oh - speaking of primitive, how about the instinct to soothe a crying baby? Even cats have it. This video is amazing - shared by my friend Karol. If you don't see a video player, click here to watch.
