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.

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 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.
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.
What you need to make the reindeer:
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.
It is about that time to start decorating the Christmas tree. Officially in two days it is acceptable to get into the Christmas spirit, blast Christmas music and bring out all of the decorations. I started slightly early but I am just ready for Christmas time! It’s fun to decorate for and Christmas crafts are the best. These little diy mini wreath ornament were really easy to make. You can put them on the tree or make a mini wreath garland! I got all of the supplies from the dollar store.
I love giving gifts and receiving gifts for Christmas. It is always nice if the gifts have a personal touch or something handmade. Handmade gifts are great but they can be time consuming to make. You can add personal touches to gifts by wrapping them with some fun diy Christmas gift bags and tags. These cute ideas include snowflakes, reindeer, Santa and more of the Christmas classics! People will love to receive gifts with these cute wrappings. Here are some fun ideas from around the web!
Since it is November that means time to get ready for Christmas! Does everyone get ready in November or is it just me? Thanksgiving is fun but lets get real the decorations can’t compare to Christmas! Put on some Christmas music and start the Christmas decorating projects. This Christmas bow wreath is incredibly easy to make and looks really pretty. You can make it with any color of bows. Traditional red, green, or gold like I did. This wreath is on the small side, but you can make it even bigger and fuller. This one is just one row of bows. If you get a large bag of bows you can make two rows for a large wreath. The large bag of bows was $5 and I used a cake plate that I had for the base. Such an easy do it yourself project for Christmas. This would be a fun easy project to make with a group of friends.
Santa’s coming, Santa’s coming, I know him! I still love Santa and the magic that comes with Santa around Christmas. My daughter believes still and I will keep that going as long as I can. Santa brings presents so why not bring presents to others dressed up as Santa or bring some Santa “kisses”. This DIY Santa gift bags are perfect for school class gifts, gifts to friends or Christmas parties. You can get creative with what you put inside these cute gift bags! It doesn’t just have to be candy, although Hershey Kisses work well for the Santa kisses. I made easy Santa belts to go on the bags. You can use both the gift tag and Santa. You could also pick one or the other depending on your preference.
