Corky Christmas Ornaments!

Categories: Christmas, Crafts, Featured, Holidays, Ornament, SeasonalTags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , Author:

I hate throwing away the corks from wine and champagne bottles in hopes that we’ll end up doing something with them. But we never do. Alberto is beginning to question my cork hoarding obsession. Just before he was ready to throw them out, I came up with the idea to make Christmas ornaments! Since we’re visiting our nieces and nephews for the holidays, why not make them with the kids? We left the knife cutting to the adults, but the kids can do everything else. It’s going to be our new holiday tradition! Read more →

It’s been a very busy year for us. Between moving (twice!), settling in, and unpacking (twice!), we thought we were doing well by putting up the Christmas decorations during Thanksgiving weekend. We’ve been enjoying our new place with all of our three Christmas trees when suddenly we realized that we never made a wreath for the front door! Big oops! Read more →

Wood Shingle Christmas Tree

Categories: Christmas, Crafts, Featured, Holidays, TableTags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , Author:

We host Christmas dinner at our house every year. (Well, I host while Alberto cooks. You definitely don’t want to eat my cooking!) This year we wanted something special for the center of the table. We kept tossing around ideas, but nothing really seemed right. So to help us with our inspiration, we headed down to the basement to see what we could find. (Weird, I know, but it seems to work for us!)

We were rummaging through when we saw a bundle of wooden shingles left over from when we had the house painted a few years ago. Immediately, Alberto said “Christmas tree!” and just as quickly, I said “Of course!” (Don’t try to figure out how we do this, it just is…) Read more →

Blue Jean Christmas Ornaments

Categories: Christmas, Crafts, Holidays, OrnamentTags: , , , , , Author:

We have several pairs of old blue jeans that I just can’t seem to bring myself to throw out. They’re very worn out, but I just hate throwing away all of that fabric. So they continue to sit upstairs in a pile. Until this past weekend… Read more →

Christmas Bow Wreaths

Categories: Christmas, Crafts, Holidays, WreathsTags: , , , , , Author:

Many of you know that Alberto and I love making wreaths…and the holiday season always gives us a good excuse to make new ones for the house. We came up with the idea of using Christmas gift bows a few years back and decided to revisit them while walking through our local market and found bags full of them. They were all so shiny and colorful that we couldn’t resist…now, all we needed was a few styrofoam wreaths and the glue guns, of course! Read more →

Teddy Bear Christmas Ornaments

Categories: Christmas, Crafts, Decor, Holidays, OrnamentTags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , Author:

After our recent visit from our family, we wanted to make something for our nieces and nephews for Christmas.  Our original intent was to make teddy bears for our nieces with some of the leftover fabric from other projects.  We didn’t quite get to that, but we still liked the idea.  So Alberto suggested that we make ornaments for them.  That way, they will always have them at Christmas.   Read more →
