Since I’ve barely started my Christmas shopping, I really shouldn’t be thinking ahead to how I’m going to wrap the gifts. But that’s the mind of a crafty procrastinator! You may remember how over the summer I shared how to make these scrapbook paper gift bags on Tatertots and Jello. With prime gift-giving season upon us, […]

These handpainted Christmas gift tags are an adorable way to mark those special presents from Santa under the tree. I first shared this project last year on the DecoArt blog, but it was so cute, I didn’t want you to miss it. It was the perfect thing to share for this month’s Celebrations of Home seasonal roundup […]

I know one super fan who is going to completely geek out over this Boba Fett Star Wars sign. In my son’s mind, no character is cooler than Boba Fett, the bounty hunter who captured Han Solo in The Empire Strikes Back. Come on — he has a jet pack! And he’s so tough Darth […]

These personalized whiskey glasses are the perfect handmade gift for your BFF or partner in crime. You could buy a set for $40 or make a knockoff version for much less, including the cost of your craft supplies. I’m sharing a simple tutorial to make these glasses today as part of the 5th Annual Handmade Holidays […]

Goldtones pair really well with the vintage, eclectic decor I have throughout my house, especially in our vintage meets modern living room. So when I saw the Gold Stag Decoupage Paper from DecoArt, I knew I had to find […]

I have the Midas touch. It seems I can’t touch anything without wanting to make it gold or silver or copper… My friend, Sara, from Major Hoff Takes a Wife challenged a bunch of bloggers to see what we could make with liquid gilding. This stuff. Precious metal in a bottle. You can find a link […]

I’ve been batting this project around in my head for a while now. I’m glad I finally stepped up to the plate and got it done, because this simple DIY is a home run! Sorry…there’s something about sports that makes me lapse into cliches! Maybe I have a calling as a sportswriter. I’ve been wanting to […]

It’s time for another fun, kid-friendly Minecraft craft. Kids love slap bracelets, especially when they’re decorated to look like a creeper from Minecraft. Since these are made with duct tape, you can create a DIY slap bracelet featuring any kind of mob or custom skin you like. You just need to have the right color […]
