DIY Tropical Drink Sleeves

Making this winter bright and tropical continues with these fun coffee or hot drink sleeves! I’m feeling all tropical and beachy while inside with the heat on. Fill these up with my colorful hot chocolate. Then you will have some bright drinks and cups. These could be really fun for coffee at a tropical brunch! Then top the drinks with whipped cream and colorful sprinkles. Plus the tropical vibes go great with colorful Christmas lights for easy decor in the winter. I just couldn’t wait until the heat to make some tropical fun. By the time summer comes around I will probably be making things in fall colors.

Tropical Drink Koozies DIY

Continuing on with my brightening up winter week! Lets make winter bright with some diy tropical drink koozies. You can use these for year round but they are fun to use for winter to make sure your hands don’t freeze while enjoying a cool beverage. As a kid I loved all things tropical and beachy. I had a tropical themed Bat Mitzvah party. My parents were also known for doing luau styled parties. That is why I am loving all the tropical vibes parties. Flamingos and pineapples are some of my favorites. They are also right on trend. You can make these for everyday use, gifts and parties. Plus, these were super easy to make with the Spellbinders Platinum 6 and these tropical die collection. I’m going to decorate my desk all tropical with these dies. Flamingo pens are a must!

I have a scarf obsession. They dress up boring winter clothes and are an easy way to accessorize. My scarfs include tons of colors and patterns. I also have a gold elephant one that I love. I made this simple infinity scarf from the dollar section at target into an owl scarf. It’s cute because the owl looks like it’s tucked into┬áthe scarf like a nest. Anyone can make this diy no sew owl scarf! It literally takes no crafty skill to make this owl scarf. Just a couple simple instructions.

Owl hat DIY

I love winter time and getting all bundled up. In Phoenix it doesn’t get cold to the point where you can’t leave the house but you definitely need to be bundled up. I also love winter hats! I’ve seen the adorable animal hats that people crochet or sew. Crocheting and sewing are way above my crafty skill level. One day when I have some extra time maybe I will learn how to crochet. For now I will stick to the easier way. I found some solid color hats from the dollar section at target. They were a couple dollars. Then you add a felt owl and it is an adorable owl hat. I made this one for me but you can also make them for kids. For my daughter I will add in some bright colors to match her rainbow colored wardrobe. I made this peek a who owl hat(get it, peek a boo peak a who) in minutes.

Toy jar snow globe

My daughter loves little tiny toys. Luckily they are cheap and she gets a lot of use out of them. The only problem is over time we have accumulated a ton of them. I wanted to find another use for them. With my love of snow globes at the moment I thought it would be cute to turn them into glitter toy snow globes. You can add snow in too with the glitter, just snow or just glitter. We have a ton of my little pony toys. We also have an excessive amount of Star Wars toys. You can use any little toys. Those little surprise bag toys are great for make toy snow globes.

Snow Globe Cups

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.

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?!

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.
