DIY New Year's Eve Crafts

I can’t believe that December is already here and we are dreaming up great New Year’s projects for you! Of course, I am featuring glittered projects and upcycle projects that could be enjoyed any time of the year. The best part is that you can find many of the materials for these projects at your local Goodwill Store for a fraction of the price compared to other retail stores.

Head on over to the Goodwill Tips Blog to get the scoop on these fun and festive projects to ring in the New Year!

Simplifying the Holiday Parade of Activities

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

*This post is sponsored by Ritz Crackers

Each year, I find myself coming to the topic of simplifying the holidays.  Don’t we just all wish this time of year was a little easier?  Despite my best efforts to simplify, it can feel impossible in the midst of the kid’s holiday programs, get togethers, shopping, wrapping, sending of cards, gift-giving, & holiday baking.

I don’t want to brag, but this year we really did achieve that simple holiday we have been longing for and I am partnering with Ritz to share how you can avoid the parade of endless holiday to-do’s and instead embrace a simpler holiday.

 Simplifying the Holiday Parade of Activities

Simplify the Giving of Holiday Cards

 

I love, love, love having pictures that I am in and having someone else take them for me, but we lost track of time and weren’t able to book our usual family session. Instead of not sending cards, I set my camera up on a tripod and we took our family shot by setting the timer on our camera and having me jump into the family picture.   By getting everything set up in advance before my family came outside, we were able to get our picture in a mere five minutes.  Before everyone had their coats off, I had our photos edited and cards in the mail. The best part is that we have moved our family session to the Spring, a time of year we decided was much less chaotic, and will really enjoy it all a little bit more.

I will admit that I was also was more laid back about how we did our cards this year and enlisted one of my favorite helpers to assist me in this year’s mailing. Not only was she excellent at adding our stamps and sealing the envelopes, but she also kept me on track because she was waiting for me to get those addresses on so she could do her part with them.  It gave us time to chat while we were doing them and ended up being fun instead of a holiday chore this year.

Simplify the Holiday Baking

 

This year we decided to skip the big baking day and make easy treats instead. Although I usually love holiday baking, this year I focused more on creating knitted gifts than my typical holiday treat box. Fortunately, we found a fun holiday treat that we could make that didn’t require a bit of baking, but was just as delicious. On the Ritz Holiday Parade site, we found an easy recipe for Mint Thins to create together that tasted just like one of our favorite cookie treats, but were made with Ritz Crackers, chocolate, and crushed candy canes.

It just goes to show that making holiday treats doesn’t have to be an elaborate baking day. My kids loved helping to crush (and eat!) the candy canes for our cookies and we enjoyed eating these while watching, “A Christmas Story,” this year. Yet another simple and easy tradition is born!

 Simplifying the Holiday Parade of Activities

Simplify the Gift Giving

 

I often talk about our commitment to do the Four Gift Rule, but this year we took it a step further and asked the kids if they would like to skip the presents and just take a family adventure together. We gave them lots of options for places we could take a mini-vacation to and they chose a trip to Grand Rapids, Michigan for our holiday getaway. We are so excited to take in all of the museums, holiday lights, ice skating, and see the sites of the city.

If your kids are struggling to come up with gifts this year or your home is overrun with just too much stuff, consider creating your very own, “Choose Your Own Adventure,” vacation in lieu of gifts. Not only did I have a lot less to buy this year, but I also get to spend four days with my family making incredible memories that I hope they will remember forever.

Start planning and dreaming ahead for next year though because those vacation rentals do go quickly!

 Ritz Parade Float

Focus On the Fun

 

Ritz wants to bring back the fun for the holidays and this year they have created a fun interactive Ritz Parade where you can visit the site and build your very own float. You can add up to twelve items on your float from toys, characters, celebrations, and banners. The pieces can be scaled to your desired size and placed anywhere on your float. Once it is complete, you can share your holiday float with others. It’s a fun little interactive tool that you can use to keep the kids busy while you are putting those last minute touches on those holiday festivities. Since we adopted a cat this year, we loved making a float of her for our holiday parade. I am sure this illustrates just how special she has become to all of us!

In addition, the Ritz parade allows consumers to unlock deals to help decrease the stress of gift buying! You can check out all the deals here!

Happy Holidays, friends!

Knitted Wine Bottle Hat and Scarf

Monday, December 16th, 2013

Knitted Wine Bottle Hat and Scarf from MomAdvice.com

I love sharing ideas for cute hostess gifts and today’s gift idea is a free pattern for a wine hat and scarf that you can use to adorn bottles of wine or champagne for your favorite hostess over the holiday season.

Walmart challenged me to create a New Year’s Eve craft and I immediately thought of a fun way to decorate a bottle of bubbly or wine for the holidays. I love this project so much because these are so fun to create and can be decorated in any combination of yarn colors and you can even experiment with stitches and hat toppers.

You may recall that I made knitted sweater coffee cozies for our teacher & bus driver gifts this year? I used the Red Heart Super Savers yarn and I still had some left despite wrapping all my holiday gifts in the yarn, knitting hair bows for gifts (coming soon!) and even making my yarn ball ornaments. I can’t believe how many projects you can create with just $2.47 of yarn!

I wanted to create a festive gift I could share with others when I attend our holiday gatherings this year. What is more festive than tiny hats and scarves for your wine bottles?

Knitted Wine Bottle Hat and Scarf from MomAdvice.com

Modifications Were Made to The Featured Pattern. Please Read Carefully!

I tried a few different needle sizes since the pattern said you could use a few different sizes, I recommend going with the largest size (US 8) recommended because it created the fullest scarf (the red one in the back was done on US 8 needles). There were also some interesting stitches in the pattern for the scarf and I tried it three different ways (recommended, my own way, and then a simple stockinette). I loved just simply doing a simple stockinette (knit one row, purl one row- repeating) with the US 8 needles. The scarf will curl in a bit, but I think it added more texture to the top of the bottle. You can, of course, experiment with what you think looks best though.

These tiny hats are knitted on double-pointed needles. If you haven’t tried using double-pointed needles before, this is a perfect project to try them on. You can find a few tips from me over here on needle recommendations and getting started! Don’t be scared, it is easier than you think!

I know I keep talking about my pom-pom makers, but they seriously have made me so happy this year. I bought them when we made pom-pom bouquets for our grandma (you can read my tutorial on how to use them there)  and then I completed a pom-pom marathon when I made my DIY Pom Pom Trees. I used the smallest Clover Pom-Pom maker for these tiny hats.

While you are buying it, you might as well as buy the larger size because you will be just as addicted to me as pom-pom making!

DIY Slippers With Interchangeable Fabric Flowers

Monday, December 9th, 2013

DIY Slippers With Interchangeable Fabric Flowers from MomAdvice.com.

Continuing with our theme of handmade gifts, I wanted to share this easy DIY for glamming up a pair of slippers for the holidays with some easy interchangeable fabric flowers that I created to dress-up a pair of slippers.

DIY Slippers With Interchangeable Fabric Flowers from MomAdvice.com.

Supplies List

Slippers

Large Circle Punch or Cup/Jar that you can trace to create your circles

Fabric Quarters or Scrap Fabric

1 Piece of Felt

Decorative Buttons

Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks

3/4″ Circle Heavy-Duty Magnets OR you can use Velcro circle dots (reinforced with hot glue)

DIY Slippers With Interchangeable Fabric Flowers from MomAdvice.com.

Directions:

1. Begin by cutting out nine circles of your fabric for each flower. For a pair of shoes, you will need eighteen of these circles in total.  I used a large circle punch and created my template out of scrap card stock, but you could also trace a cup to create your own template.

2. Next cut out two smaller circles of felt. I just freehanded these. You will be using these as the base of your fabric flowers.

3. For these fabric flowers, we are going to make the flower more flat than we did in my flower clips that I have a tutorial for, so they will lay nice and flat on your slippers. Begin by folding your circle in half and then half again. Add a dab of glue on the bottom and secure it to your flower. Repeat this process three more times and it will fill the base of the flower.

4. Add another layer on top of the flower, folding them as I shared above, and weaving them between the layers of the flower until it is full. If you like the look of it with just eight petals, that is okay too. You just want to make sure that the flower is filled out entirely.

5. Add a dab of glue to your button and secure it to the top of the flower. Repeat all of these steps again to make the second one for the second shoe.

DIY Slippers With Interchangeable Fabric Flowers from MomAdvice.com.

6. You can secure your fabric flowers directly on to your slippers (suggested if you are committed to your flowers), or you can add a magnet OR Velcro dots (in the sewing supplies of your craft shop) to the top of these and then secure a magnet/Velcro dot to the back of the flowers to make these interchangeable.

If making an interchangeable set with magnets, be sure to test your magnets to make sure they are attracting and select heavy-duty magnets that will really hold these flowers to your slippers.

I absolutely love these slippers and loved them so much I may have kept them for myself and now have to run out and get supplies to make more of them!

All Knitted Up: Snowflake Scarf from Purl Soho

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

Snowflake Scarf from Purl Soho

Looking for a fast and easy knit that you can mindlessly do while watching television? This easy Snowflake Scarf pattern is just the pattern for you for your holiday gift-giving this year! You won’t believe how quickly this pattern knits up!

I know that I have been getting lots of comments and emails lately about sharing my knitted gifts. I hope you spied my adorable coffee cup sweaters I knitted up for our teachers and the super cute yarn ball ornaments I made for some additional gifts this year.

Snowflake Scarf from Purl Soho Snowflake Scarf from Purl Soho Snowflake Scarf from Purl Soho

Snowflake Scarf Pattern

Pattern: Snowflake Scarf from Purl Soho (FREE!)

Needle Size: US 15″ straight needles (affiliate)

Yarn: Yarn Bee Andes Alpaca in Fog (found at Hobby Lobby). You only need three skeins (read below).

Notes: I am absolutely in love with this stitch pattern and this scarf that I knitted up for a holiday gift. There are only four rows and two of them are just knit rows, making this the easiest pattern to memorize and mindlessly knit while watching your favorite holiday shows.

I bought four skeins of the yarn, as was recommended in the pattern, but I think that adding another skein would have added a lot of unnecessary weight to this one and the three skeins created a perfect length on this scarf. It is warm, but not smothering you in layers of scarf!

I can’t recommend this pattern enough and can’t wait to make a few more for the holiday season for gifts.

I am having a VERY hard time passing this scarf on. It really is the perfect scarf. I am thankful this is an easy one to knit though so I can head right over to get more yarn and make another one for myself!

Happy knitting, friends!

Easy Yarn Ball Ornaments from MomAdvice.com

Looking for a creative gift to craft up that requires zero crafting skills and can be made in under 15 minutes. These yarn ball ornaments are the perfect gift to give for the holidays and are unbelievably easy to create for the holiday season. The best part is that it is a gift perfect for knitters, but doesn’t require knitting! If you are a knitter, like me, it is a fantastic stash-buster of a project!

Target Yarn Ball Ornament

The inspiration for this craft came from this picture of an ornament at Target that my girlfriend sent to me. I loved the idea of this ornament, but wanted to create something a little more authentic for my knitting friends. After a few trips to the craft store and some test ornaments, I am sharing with you how you can make these cute ornaments for someone you love!

Easy Yarn Ball Ornaments from MomAdvice.com

Supplies List

1 package of 2 1/2″ Styrofoam balls

Wooden Skewers

1 package 3/8″ Round Wooden Beads

Craft Glue

Wire Cutters

Ruler

Scissors

Scrap Yarn

Easy Yarn Ball Ornaments from MomAdvice.com

Easy Yarn Ball Ornaments from MomAdvice.com

Directions

1. Grab two wooden skewers and measure them to 5 inches. Using your wire cutters, clamp down and break off the top end of the skewer to create the knitting needles.

2. Dab a little craft glue on the end of the skewer and top it with the wooden bead. Make sure the top of the bead lines up with the top hole so that you no longer see it. Repeat with the other skewer and set these aside to dry.

3. Add a dab of hot glue to your Styrofoam ball and start wrapping it with yarn. Keep wrapping around and around until the yarn ball is completely covered. Add one more dab of hot glue and secure the end of the yarn to the ball. Trim to keep it flush with the ball and set aside to dry.

4. Grab your wooden knitting needles and cross them through the front of the yarn ball.

5. Trim another strand of yarn and, using an embroidery needle, loop the yarn through the top of the yarn ball. Knot it, and then slide the knot into the opposite side of the ball, tucking your knot in so it is no longer visible.

Easy Christmas Tree Cinnamon Rolls

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

Easy Christmas Tree Cinnamon Rolls from MomAdvice.com.

Ever since my children were small we have had a tradition of making a Cinnamon Roll Christmas Tree. The best part about this tradition is that it is fast to create, can be decorated by your kids, and it is something they will look forward to every year.

Easy Christmas Tree Cinnamon Rolls from MomAdvice.com. Easy Christmas Tree Cinnamon Rolls from MomAdvice.com.

There is no recipe to this one unless you are feeling ambitious and want to create some easy bread machine cinnamon rolls to make this with, which is something I love to do on Christmas morning!

Shape these into a Christmas tree shape on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake as directed on the packaging. Tint the icing green with a few drops of food coloring and let them decorate the rolls themselves.

I slide the rolls off of the hot cookie sheet and let them decorate while they are still hot, reducing the risk of burn elbows and arms by removing that hot sheet.

Easy Christmas Tree Cinnamon Rolls from MomAdvice.com. Easy Christmas Tree Cinnamon Rolls from MomAdvice.com. Easy Christmas Tree Cinnamon Rolls from MomAdvice.com.

This recipe is practically fool-proof, unless you were up with a screaming baby one night and on Christmas morning grabbed blue instead of green.

And maybe you declared it the year of the retro Christmas tree.

Maybe.

I hope you can embrace this as part of your annual holiday traditions. Be sure to check out my other ideas for Great Family Traditions to Celebrate the Holidays in a MEANINGFUL way.

Easy Burlap Wreath Tutorial

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

Easy Burlap Wreath Tutorial

I am all about beautiful and simple decorations for the holidays. Today’s tutorial is how to make a burlap wreath for the holiday season. This is a no-sew, no-glue, no-cut project that should be easy to create in about 30 minutes.

Walmart challenged me to create a DIY decorating project for the holidays and I immediately knew that I wanted to create one of those burlap wreaths that I had seen on so many other blogs. I really wanted to add a festive holiday spin to it, but one that would be easy to execute (and replicate!).

I began searching through blogs for tutorials on how to create my wreath, watched a million YouTube videos, looked at more blogs…and basically my eyes crossed and glazed over. Everyone does their wreaths differently and there is not one magic tutorial, BUT gathering those ideas, this is my version of the burlap wreath with a little holiday spin for you.

Easy Burlap Wreath Tutorial Easy Burlap Wreath Tutorial

Supplies Needed

2 Rolls of Burlap, 5 inches wide & 10 yards long (here is what I purchased)

18″ wire wreath form

1 package of mini-clothespins

2 floral holiday picks (any variety)

3-5 holiday photos printed in wallet-size

Floral wire

Scissors

Easy Burlap Wreath Tutorial

Easy Burlap Wreath Tutorial

How to Make Your Burlap Wreath

1. To begin, select a few of your favorite holiday photos that can be attached to your wreath. The pictures I picked were from our family’s epic sledding adventure that you we do each year. Send these off to the Walmart Photo Lab and have them printed in wallet-size ($.58 each).

Easy Burlap Wreath Tutorial

2. Now that you have your photos to decorate your wreath, let’s begin weaving the burlap through our wire wreath form. This is going to take a little time and practice with your first one so don’t get discouraged.

Easy Burlap Wreath TutorialBegin by folding your burlap in half, like I have shown above, and keep wrapping as we go. Select one section of the wire wreath to start in. Feed the beginning end through the wreath as shown above. Over the outer ring, under the next, over the next, and under to finish. Leave a little loose end to tuck in or you can wire it to the wreath with a little floral wire in the back. Now you have started your wreath- super easy!  This is the technique we are using throughout. I am showing it to you tightly so you can see how this will work, when you do this, you will be actually pulling out the burlap a bit to give it to that bubble effect that we are going for. 

3. Using the working end of the burlap, we are going to begin making the bubbled burlap right next to this row, within the same section of that metal wreath, but we will begin weaving in the opposite direction, continuing to pull out and bubble the burlap as we go, moving the working burlap into each section, weaving one direction than weaving the other direction.

4. When you run out of burlap (it should be when you are about halfway through covering the wreath), tuck the end towards the back and pick up where you left off. Again, you can wire these ends with a little floral wire on the back.

5. Once the entire wreath is covered, secure the final end with floral wire. Finish, by puffing up some of the folded bubbles (if desired) or you can leave them as is, if you prefer a more ruffled, rather than bubbly effect.

Easy Burlap Wreath Tutorial

6. Finish the wreath by gluing OR wiring two floral picks on the wreath. I just used a little glue, not too excessively like I usually do, so that I can remove these and switch my wreath up with the season (much like my yarn wreath that is STILL gracing my front door). Finish the wreath by attaching a few of your favorite holiday portraits with those mini-clothespins.

Easy Burlap Wreath Tutorial Once you are done, here is what the back of my wreath looked like. You can trim any of the pieces down that were wired to help your wreath lay more flush to your door.

Easy Burlap Wreath Tutorial Easy Burlap Wreath Tutorial Easy Burlap Wreath Tutorial

Isn’t she lovely? With a little less than $20 supplies and 30 minutes of your time, you truly have a beautiful wreath for your front door, to grace your mantle, or to make a wall in your home more festive. Not to mention, wouldn’t this just make the most fabulous little gift for someone you love for the holidays?

I’m madly in love with it and I hope it inspires you to dress up a door in your home!
