Monday, December 26th, 2011

Greetings all, I hope you’re enjoying your time off with friends and family.  We’re coming down to the last few days of the year, and that means it’s roundup time!  Looking back, I narrowed it down to a list of fifteen of my favorite DIY projects from 2011.  Here they are in chronological order, follow the links for the full story.

DIY Wine Bottle Gift Bags

Monday, December 5th, 2011

We had one of the best weekends ever.  Christmas tree?  Check.  Gift list nearly complete?  Check.  Christmas tunes party playlist?  Check.  Trip to the movies?  Check.  We saw the new Muppets movie, so cute!  It brought back memories of watching the show as a child, I confess I was nodding my head back and forth to the Muppets Show theme…”it’s time to put on music, it’s time to light the lights…”

Today is a great day, as we kick off  the Holiday Home Parties, and today Layla is hosting table decor.  I hosted a tablescape contest last week (announcing the winners soon!) so I thought I’d create something for the host or hostess you can make and give that they’d be proud to place on their  table!  The best news is these wine bags can be made with scraps of fabric you have leftover from other projects. They’re easy to make and a great way to personalize a gift of wine or bubbly.
