I'm here to share my crafts and DIY projects. Why? As our lives become busier with time , you tend to settle for the quick 'n' easy solution slowly transforming your life and home into an impersonal space. A few DIY touches here and there will make the big difference, you won't need complicated tools to work through my posts, it's an every day blog for the every day person
Christmas is just around the corner and i am done with all the decorating so now we celebrate! Just last week a few friends of mine hosted a fabulous Christmas girls night in, each one of us had to make a Christmas inspired dish . The issue was that i have a cooking handicap so i planned a crafting project instead . Here are some of the pictures from that night
We made a Christmas wish jar using mason jars, magazine cut outs, glue, mod podge and white tissue paper.
This was inspired by the Fashion Collection Candles craft from last year, click here to see
The girls started off by making magazine cut outs of their Christmas must haves
This is Christmas craft #2 and it's by far my favorite. Although i'm really excited and proud of the upcoming posts , this one is special because it came out of desperation!
After several failed attempts at making a unique star for our tree , i gave up and went shopping for one. Sadly yet luckily nothing caught my eye and out of the blue i got this silly idea to make a sign that says "Star" . I ran it by my husband who thought it was genius so i guess I'm lucky he's a fan!
What i used:
Start with a cardboard cut out. It can be any shape you want except a star. I found the circle to be the easiest shape to hang at the tip of the tree
Spray it with chalkboard paint and allow it to dry very well. Don't use a hair dryer, let it air dry for best results
I chose to write Star in 3 languages : English, French and Italian.
Other ideas would be to make one that says "Star Here" or "I am a Star"
And since it's chalk, you can even make a daily Christmas countdown
