Hazelnut Christmas Ornament: Kids Holiday Craft

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:)

No sew interchangeable window valance

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.

Chestnut Votive Holder: Fall Craft

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!

DIY “reclaimed wood” on Kitchen Island

This is a sponsored post. The kind folks at True Value have asked me to share a DIY project with you. I have been compensated for my time and efforts.

I told you that I have been working with the homeowner that bought one of the houses in Norton Commons that I helped design. Before the house had a contract we had envisioned this kitchen to be very modern farmhouse (in traditional “Tracie” style;). We wanted a mix of old and new….modern but yet soft and lived in.  My thought for the large island in the center was to make it look like it has been old piece of furniture that we reclaimed to be the kitchen island.

Barn Door TV Cabinet above Mantle

I wanted to continue our discussion from last Thursday about our TV cabinet. As I told you last week….we really wanted to cover it up (actually I really wanted to cover it up;) We hired this one out because it was just a little bit more detailed than we were comfortable with …plus the trim carpenter that we worked with already had some really great barn wood. He was also able to find some original barn door hinges too.  Everything came off of a barn that was about a hundred years old…it is just the coolest….
