Elf Snacks Gift Jar

| Christmas, Holidays

Adorable Elf Snacks I’m sure the elves are already busy making toys! Do they make them year round? Well this has to be their busiest time of year and they deserve some sweet elf snacks. Plus, your friends and family also deserve elf snacks. I made these simple holiday treats and gift jar that make the perfect easy food gift. I used mini marshmallows dipped in chocolate to make small enough treats for an elf. Plus, you can’t feel guilty about eating sweets when they are in tiny bites like this. That is just a fact! I was originally going to make little sugar cookies for elf snacks but it was hard to get good cookies that were tiny enough for elves. These chocolate covered mini marshmallows are waaaayyy easier to make than cookies and the perfect little treats. I made elf printables for the jar you can use some or all of them on a jar of elf snacks. What you need for the jars: mason jars green paint(optional) tape scissors ELF PRINTABLES and white card stock paper For the elf marshmallow snacks: mini marshmallows melting candy wafers or candy melts in red, green, or white(2 colors are good for the sizzling on top) sprinkles in any holiday colors read more

Fairy Garden Ornaments

In the spring I always love to make fairy gardens. I thought it might be fun to bring some of the fairy garden magic into Christmas. I love making my own ornaments and adding new ones to the tree each year. Over the years I have gotten a bit of a collection and these fairy garden ornaments are the perfect addition to my collection. I made these with the help of a few dollar store materials. When I saw their Christmas decorations out I went a little crazy and snatched up a bunch of the fun ornaments and things before they run out! You can also find supplies online. Don’t you just love shopping in pajamas?! Especially with a kid sometimes it is difficult to find time to run out and get things for craft projects. I love how these ornaments turned out! The butterflies on the outside make it look like they are flying away or the butterfly is carrying the garden. It’s whimsical and beyond easy to make. read more

DIY Unicorn Ornament

Are you all ready for Christmas? Yes, I know it’s not even Halloween or Thanksgiving but Christmas is my favorite craft time of year. The best thing about these DIY Unicorn Ornaments is that you can hang these up year round. Unicorns are cute for kids rooms and really any occasion. I might have to hang some of these cuties in my office. It has kind of a unicorn vibe anyways. I used a few simple materials from Dollar Tree to get this cute look with faux flowers, gems, and gold pipe cleaners to make a sparkly cute unicorn ornament. Anyone can make these and they are cute for kids to help out with the stick on gems and drawing the face. Although, leave the hot gluing up to the professionals. read more

Snow Globe Cups

| Christmas, DIY

Snow Globe Drink Cups

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas and this time of year is also the time for holiday cocktails! It’s fun to make specialty cocktails but typically I am more of just a wine gal. I found a fun way to dress up any type of holiday drink. These are cranberry drinks but you can put any types of drinks in these adorable snow globe cups! I did a wine glass one and a shot glass type cup. Let me tell you I love them so much I will be using that wine glass all year round. That’s not much a stretch for me because I use my Elf coffee cup year round too. It’s just more fun to drink out of festive cups. These snow globe cups are also really fun DIY gifts to hand out to friends. read more

Snow Globe Serving Tray

| Christmas, Decorations, DIY

Snow Globe Serving Tray for parties

Christmas party season is starting and man am I excited! I love a good Christmas party and lots of Christmas party food. I don’t typically cook the food but I can help make it look all cute to serve. For fall I made these fun Pumpkin Serving Trays that were a hit. I thought it would be fun to make serving trays for Christmas parties too. I have been loving all of the snow globe ideas this season. I probably spent an hour on Pinterest looking at ideas. Although spending an hour on Pinterest is a typical day for me. This DIY Snow Globe Serving Tray can be made mostly with dollar store materials and a few from the craft store. I also had left over snow and trees to decorate my place. You can use these trays for home decorations as well, they’d be cute with a snow village on top! I may have made a wee bit of a mess with the snow but that just adds to the snowy look, right?! read more

Santa cupcakes with buttercream frosting

Ho ho ho Merry Christmas! Santa is coming soon and let me tell you we are excited in my house. My daughter loves Santa and this time of year. She wants to visit Santa every day and look at Christmas lights every night. We can’t see Santa every day but I have lots of holiday goodness planned this month. I think I get almost as excited as her. Especially when it comes to making Christmas treats I love coming up with fun ideas. We made these Santa cupcakes and some penguin cupcakes. Two of my daughters favorite things Santa and Penguins. I really love these Santa cupcakes and how easy they were to make. I did the beards but the rest my 5 year old could help out with. read more

Christmas Table Setting

| Christmas, Decorations, DIY

Present table setting

Christmas is a hectic time with celebrations and wrapping presents. That doesn’t mean you can’t still have a cute and easy Christmas table setting for Christmas parties or Christmas day. If you are wrapping presents anyways might as well wrap the whole table too to make a pretty and easy Christmas table. This is fun for gift wrapping parties, cookie parties and parties with kids. This Christmas table setting was really easy to make and looks super cute. I added a bunch of bows in the middle for a table runner but you could add one bow in the middle and ribbon. This is a good use too of extra wrapping paper. read more

Christmas Wine Gifts

Santa wines

For the kids I have candy canes and for the adults I have dressed up wine bottles! These are fun for parties or to hand out to friends for gifts. You can’t go wrong with the gift of wine. I decorated little bottles but you can do the same thing for larger bottles of wine. Santa’s helpers might need a little wine around the holidays. You can serve these for holiday parties or bring them to a holiday party for a host gift. Make the Santa or reindeer wines.

Candy Cane Snowmen

| Candy, Christmas, DIY

Snowman candy canes

I always want to hand out little gifts for the holidays. I’m not usually a candy cane person but you have to have a candy cane around Christmas! I found these Starburst candy canes and had to try them out. They are tasty and they look really cute as snowmen! Candy cane snowmen are even cuter than the candy cane reindeer. They are fun to hand out to friends or in kids classes. Dress them up with a little scarf or ear muffs! Some I made with faces, others without, either way I think they look adorable. read more
