This post has been sponsored by Diamond Nuts. I have been compensated for my time and efforts writing this post. All ideas, photos, and errors are 100% mine:) I have shared with you 2 other fun and innovative ways to use those fabulous Diamond Nuts (a votive holder and an ornament)….here is my last project for this campaign. These creative napkin rings make use of those whole walnut shells. You will just need a few other household items to create these one of a kind rings for your holiday table. A few fresh sprigs of every green or holly for color and your table is festive in a flash!
I have used the cheapo cedar fence parts before….long time ago when I made a art piece for my friend Patti. They are really affordable…possibilities are endless for small craft projects or large ones like this! I will show you the rest of the porch on Wednesday….but before I get to editing all those pics I wanted to share with you this very large Christmas sign that cost just under $10! An easy afternoon project too…would be such a nice gift to give too. I painted mine in candy cane stripes….but obviously you are only limited by your imagination. GO crazy I say! Here is how I put mine together and finished it to look a bit aged…
So….dang it’s hard to get out of pj’s after you’ve been in them for 5 days am I right?!?! Goodness we had a fabulously lazy Thanksgiving weekend. I love it when nothing is on the calendar and we can just chill….and chill we did. We decorated and baked and watched movies (A Gift Wrapped Christmas on Lifetime is a front runner right now for the sappiest and cutest Holiday movie…but of course time will tell..) Ahhhh….it was so much fun. Back to reality…sort of…hubs and I leave for the beach on Wednesday for a little R&R….excited to see the beach:)
You know I am a sucker for a good party favor….I have done several in the past. I like to switch it up a bit:) Found this easy recipe for beer bread and some cool local brew bottles….a crowd pleaser too with the men and ladies;) These would make great neighbor gifts too…for not much cash:) I even did all the hard work for you and made you a printable to print out and attach:) I’m so nice….
Hey all! Y’all still eatin and nappin? We are…and lovin it:) Wanted to pop in to share this printable for you to whip up a meaningful Advent calendar this weekend. Just print out the list (may want to enlarge a bit to make cutting easier:)….cut up the tasks….and put in 25 little envelopes or bags. I just taped up some squares of giftwrap and put in a few little candies along with the act for the day. No need to number them….just put them in a bowl and let the kids open one each day (and don’t stress…if you want to save up the acts for a weekend do it!) Have a Christ filled Advent this year doing good the whole month long:)
