I was going to schedule this post for Monday, but it occurred to me that today is Saturday, the day when most people actually have time to do DIYs, and a lot of people are stuck inside due to nasty weather today, soooooo...here are a few good ways to pass the time and make cute things.
Christmas tree dollhouse. I love everything about it.
crocheted string of Christmas lights is the best thing ever. (I really want to make this at some point. I probably won't have time until after the holiday rush is over, but I would happily hang this year-round, so I'm not bothered that it might be after the holidays for me.)
reindeer tutorial is perfect should you find yourself trapped at home today without any craft supplies (the horror!). All you need are a couple of toilet paper rolls, some tape, and paint or markers. This one would be good for kids to help out with too.
this awesome video tutorial for soda can ornaments...another good one if you have few craft supplies on hand because all you need are a couple of empty soda cans and paper clips or wire. We aren't really soda drinkers, but I might raid my neighbors recycling bin for this one. There are a lot of bright and pretty cans this time of year.
I haven't done any DIYs (nope, not a single one) since my Halloween bat garland. But I'm going to rectify that soon because I really miss playing around with new materials. And I think one of the best ways to get new ideas for future projects is to experiment and make stuff that you don't usually make.
My plans for the day include packing up orders, wrapping presents, and possibly making a few new things for the shop while watching a Christmas movie or two. What are you guys up to?
