DIY Ornaments + Holiday Craft Link Party

Monday, December 12th, 2011

Hello everyone, I look forward to this party every year, and I’m so glad you’re here.  We’re continuing along with the Holiday Home Link Parties, and today is all about crafts!  For the occasion, I created two simple DIY ornaments, one with a little glitz, the other more rustic and natural.  Here’s the first ornament I made this past weekend, a mini mirrored starburst. These are easy to create with just a few supplies from the craft and grocery store.

Paper Winter Tree

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

It was a crafty weekend around here, and here’s one of the sweet projects I finished up yesterday: a paper winter tree created with cardstock and cupcake liners. It reminds me of a combination between those bottle brush trees and all the coffee filter crafts we’ve seen this past year.

These are so inexpensive to create, and you can make them any height you want, tall ones from poster board and smaller ones with cardstock.

Supply list : white paper cupcake liners (I used 50 jumbo liners from Safeway for $1.50), white 12 x 12” cardstock or poster board, clear packaging tape (not shown), hot glue gun, and mini ornaments (I used a $1 gold grape flourish and pulled it apart).
