I wanted to add a little shiny to my office with Christmas decorations! I came up with a few easy ways to make sparkly wreaths that are super easy to make. With a few simple steps I whipped these wreaths up in minutes. Of course I did it while listening to Christmas music and now my office has a festive sparkly look. You can’t be grumpy while looking at sparkly Christmas wreaths, that’s a fact. I used a few things from the dollar store, Walmart, and Target. I’m a work with what you got kind of gal but you could get most of these things from any of these stores. In fact you could get this kind of look all from the dollar store. I just like to have excuses to hit up all of my favorite crafty spots and of course the dollar store at Target. Now lets get down to the fun part shall we?!
One of my favorite things about Christmas is the cookies! I usually love to bake Christmas cookies with my Mom and Grandma. This year we have so many occasions that need treats. I wanted to find an easy no bake way to make some simple Christmas treats. I made these easy wreath Christmas cookies and trees too! I got store bought cookies. Bakery cookies from your local grocery store can taste just as good as homemade! Buy sugar cookies for decorating. You can make your own buttercream frosting for decorating or just buy the fun red and green tubes.
For my hot cocoa bar, I had big plans! However, life has been a bit hectic for me lately and the time I had planned to make a hot cocoa bar just wasn’t there. My daughter still wanted to have some cocoa and I put together this crazy easy hot cocoa bar in a few seconds. I used my daughters folding table and some Christmas stuff that we have collected this Christmas season. It is day 7 of the 12 days of Christmas and these 12 days are just flying by! I can’t wait to see the hot coca fun everyone has in store for today!
They never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games but this Christmas I am making lots of games for Rudolph to play. I have ten fun Reindeer game ideas to play. All of them are easy and for a range of ages. Everyone can join in on the fun and games this Christmas. My family enjoys Christmas games at our Christmas Eve party but we are probably due for some new games. Some of these are made up from my own random thoughts and others are inspired by games I’ve seen in the past.
Welcome to the third annual 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!
Stop by every day from December first through the twelfth for new ideas you can use to make your season brighter!
I have become more and more fond of the dollar store over my crafting years. It is amazing how many projects I have been able to find all of the supplies for at the dollar store. That is the closest place to me that has crafty supplies. Then my next stop is usually Walmart. To get to a full on craft store I have a bit to drive so I usually save that for special supplies. Luckily the dollar store has me covered and I have been stopping there on the daily for Christmas stuff. Just kidding….kind of. I made these adorable fairy garden ornaments all from a few dollar store supplies. They were really, really easy to make and have such a pretty whimsical feel. I’ve seen all kinds of fairy gardens but never in ornament form. It was time for a fairy garden ornament!
This is one of those Christmas projects I thought of last minute, winged it, and they turned out super cute! Sometimes I plan and plan, then the project turns out like crap. Other times I get in the zone, improvise, and something good comes out of it. I was having a Christmas Day of crafting, Christmas music, pjs, and eating Christmas cookies with my daughter. We came up with these fun sparkly Christmas party food toppers made out of pipe cleaners. We made reindeer, Christmas trees, and snowflakes oh my. I’m going to show how to make the little snowflakes. The trees are super easy and the reindeers are the hardest but oh so cute. All in all it is an easy shiny and fun craft. Really great for making with kids. So I have pictures for the snowflakes, the trees you can figure out from the instructions but the reindeer I made a video and I just need to figure out how to upload that to give you the whole tutorial of how to make them. Overall they are all easy peasy to make!
If you’ve visited my blog you know I am all about easy projects! Easy crafts, easy party ideas, easy desserts, and easy foods. That’s just how I roll and now it is how I reindeer roll. I made these easy reindeer rolls for a simple party food for a crowd. They are super cute and seriously the easiest to make. Okay, I didn’t actually make anything I more decorated some store bought rolls. This time of year is filled with holiday parties and there isn’t always time to make all the food and do all of the things. Make it easy on yourself and still get something cute. You can make home made rolls or use store bought.
Here in sunny Florida we don’t get any snow. That is why I am extra excited for these snowman snack cups! My snow comes in marshmallow form and decorations. For day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas I made these adorable little snowman cups you can use them for drinks or snacks. They are really simple to make and turned out just adorable. They would be cute for a kids party or kids class treats. Adults would love them too! My daughter kind of helped to make them. Ok she mostly listened to Christmas music, chatted with me, and ate marshmallows while I made them but it was fun quality time. We had a quality time Christmas Day and it was the best! Crafts, snacks, Christmas music, a Christmas parade, night time hot chocolate, and Christmas lights. We had a Christmas binge and it was the best time ever!
Merry Christmas all! One of my favorite Christmas traditions is watching my favorite Christmas movies. Today I will be showing you some fun Christmas movie quote printables for a fun Christmas movie night. I picked a couple of my favorites because I couldn’t pick just one. I did narrow it down to my top three! The top three are…drum roll….. Elf, Christmas Vacation, and Home Alone. These are my favorite Christmas movies of all time. I also like to throw in some Hallmark Christmas movies to watch! They are so incredibly cheesy it is amazing. Nothing like a warm and fuzzy Christmas movie. My favorite Christmas movies I love because they make me laugh for completely different reasons. The childlike fun of Elf on one end and the funny family dynamics of Christmas Vacation. I’ve already watched Elf now on to the next one.
