My Crafty Christmas

Whew! It has been a busy month. I feel like I haven't had much time be creative. But I thought I would share a few of the Christmas projects I have been working on this month. I will post the links I used down below.

1. Mercury Glass Christmas Trees

I found a few glass Christmas Trees as the DI and decided to try my hand at DIY Mercury Glass. I found it harder to work with than I thought.

2. Chalk Board Prints

I have been enjoying the Chalk Board craze. I found some cute printables on Pinterest to add to my frames. I even made one of my very own. I don't have file hosting set up or I would share it. Maybe sometime soon I will finally get that set up.

3. Christmas Gift Labels

I saw some really cool photo gift tags on-line. They have a few different types to choose from. I am a cheapskate and didn't want to spend the money so I made my own version in Photoshop. I let Benson color on the wrapping paper. I only put these on the gifts for the Grandmas

4. DIY Anthropologie inspired snow globe

I have been waiting a while to try these out. I found my bottle brush trees at the Dollar store so they aren't the best quality. 


5. Neighbor Gifts

I had a really hard time deciding what to do for neighbor gifts this year. Luckily Pinterest came to the rescue again. I made my own tags and used the Print and Cut feature on my new Silhouette machine. It is really pretty cool.

6. Dr. Who Snowflake
And just for fun I made a Dr Who Snowflake for my nerdy brother-in-law. I made a cut file and had my Silhouette do all the hard work.
