Wicked Wisteria Halloween Wreath

affiliate

I’m fighting another allergy/head cold attack and I found day-time cold medicine to be oddly motivational. I didn’t have the wherewithal to make step by step tutorial for this one but I’ll walk you through it. Someday I might even figure out how to make a video and put together a start-to-finish of my creative fiddling. I think the drooping flowers and cheeky crows are perfect for Halloween but the muted purple and cream flowers would be a perfect for the rest of fall as well.

Protect your wooden cutting boards, bowls and spoon with food safe DIY wood conditioning cream
I’ve been noticing my wooden spoons getting sadder and sadder. We don’t run them through the dishwasher, which can do some serious damage to wood, but eventually hand washing will take it’s toll. I’d seen quite a few wood conditioning creams online (ok, on Pinterest) but they all required mineral oil.

Hand Painted Holiday Magnets

Jazz up your fridge with hand painted Holiday Magnets made from wooden craft store ornaments

My fridge was looking a little neglected this season, we collect magnets from all the places we visit but none of them really say ‘Christmas’. Besides it was time to clear out the clutter of expired coupons and calender magnets from 3 years ago anyway. On my craft store travels I picked up three three packs of wooden ornaments from Michael’s to make these holiday magnets. My favorite is the little reindeer with his gold antlers.

Combine luxurious suede paper, cheerful foil striped paper and a festive metallic frame for a HO HO HO Holiday Sign

We’re giving lots of photos as gifts this year. I was in Micheal’s checking out the frame sales when I found this metallic red frame (there were a few other colors and some with glitter but we stay away from that lest we have another Disco Baby incident). After a quick stop at in the scrapbook paper aisle I headed to check out with this holiday sign in my mind. Yes, for once, something actually turned out like I had imagined!

Use an vinyl stencil and looking glass spray paint to craft a winter deer mirror perfect to reflect the twinkling holiday lights
I’ve had this idea rolling around in my head to make photo mats with Krylon Looking Glass spray paint since last winter, I even bought the spray paint I just never quite figured out what I wanted to do. When I was looking around the Silhouette Design Store and I found this stunning deer and snowflake silhouette. The stubborn wheels in my head started turning and I came up with this idea!
