My love for this old wooden fence part has grown deeper my friends….I made this with it…and this…and now this Christmas sign! I only I had three pieces of my picket fence left over.Three projects for this little $6 fence part:)! I shared on Instagram last weekend when I was in the process in the garage. I absolutely adore how this sign came out….and look…it’s snowing in my family room:) Love picmonkey:)

Who knew that you could have so much fun with nuts?? (yes, that was the first sentence that came to my mind…and you know that I type like I talk…so I had to go with it…) carry on…. My friends at Diamond Nuts challenged me this holiday season to share some fun crafts that feature their nuts. I made those super cute votive that I told you about last week….and this week I wanted to share a fun Thanksgiving craft to keep the kiddos busy:)
Just spread out the materials and let the kids make a few….grandparents love these!
Hey yall! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. I have had this project finished for awhile now….but I realized that I never share it with you! I was looking to add a bit of color to the kitchen window and this simple no sew valance popped into my mind. I wanted something that I could change out from time to time…maybe swapping the fabric out during different seasons. This is an easy project that you can pull together in about an hour.
Oh my…blogland is a blaze with Christmas already….I’m not quite there yet. There are a few commitments I have that require me to post Holiday ideas earlier than I would like….but for the most part I try to live in the current season…and right now it is all turkey talk. I love Thanksgiving….it has always been a favorite holiday in our house. I partnered up this holiday season with Diamond Nuts to come up with some unique ways to craft with the whole nuts. I will be posting a few more this month. All of them are great kid activities when you have extra kiddos in the house. A fun way to spend a little bit of time together:)
This Votive candle would be so pretty dressed up on a Thanksgiving table. Make several and place them down the table….scatter a few pumpkins and squashes, whole cheastnuts…some dried leaves…and your table is done!
Remember awhile back I told you about a charity playhouse that I helped design? There were a few fun projects that I created for the playhouse that I never got around to sharing with you. The sign for the front of the train station was made with some scrap pine wood and my printer. I wanted to show you how you can make a sign without a fancy vinyl printer….just a bit of tracing and a sharpie:)
This sign just takes a bit of time….but it was really easy to make. Here is how I did it….
