Bead Napkin Rings… From What???

Megan from Our Pinteresting Family created these lovely napkin rings for her Thanksgiving table using a most unlikely source – toilet paper rolls! I am sure TP is the last thing that comes to mind when it comes to holiday dining, but the little cardboard rolls are perfect for holding a napkin. And don’t they dress up quite nicely with brown paint and gemstone stickers?!? Your guests will never guess the rings’ humble origin {Wink}!

Decorative Golden Wishbone

Roeshel of The DIY Showoff tried her hand at working with clay for the first time to create this oversized wishbone that’s perfect for the Thanksgiving season. Roeshel’s DIY wishbone cost way less than her $58 inspiration and allows for custom sizing. From one pack of clay and one can of gold spray paint, you can make several wishbones, so Roeshel suggests making them as gifts or even as pretty package toppers.

Puffy Pom-Pom Yarn Wreath

I love a good DIY wreath, and this puffy pom-pom wreath made by Tara from Between You and Me is totally swoon-worthy! The great news is that’s also totally doable for the crafter and non-crafter alike. I absolutely adore the peppermint stick ribbon and the fact that this is a Christmas wreath that doesn’t scream Christmas. With a quick ribbon change, it could take you all the way through winter!

Jamie from That’s My Letter and Ana White have joined forces to design and create building projects that would be make great gifts this holiday season. One of their gems is this mondo-sized clipboard easel. The clip is completely functional and the board is painted with chalkboard paint so kiddos can draw on it with chalk too! How awesome is that?!? My artistic daughter would go crazy over this!

‘Give Thanks’ Thanksgiving Paper Garland

Shirley from These Moments of Mine was kicking back with her PB Kids catalog with no intention of creating anything one night. However, after spying a a cute little Christmas garland, her creative juices got flowing and had another idea. Shirley got to work creating her own harvest version of the garland using craft paper, her Silhouette, and distressing ink. Her spur-of-the-moment project is a beautiful reminder to be thankful!

Gold and White Christmas Sign

To go next to her stunning starburst mirror Christmas tree, Jen from Tatertots & Jello created a holiday sign that also reflects her gold, white, and grey color theme. Jen purchased a cheap shelf board for the sign and used her handy dandy Silhouette for the art. Believe me when I say the Silhouette makes sign-making a breeze. And, instead of $69, Jen made her sign for only $12!

Gold Leaf Metal Desk with Awesome Style

Ashley from The Handmade Home needed a desk for her family’s studio that “fit nicely, stayed organized, held a ton of stuff and had awesome style.” She found an iron and glass desk from Pottery Barn that met some of her requirements but still fell short. Ashley took matters into her own hands (and those of a welder friend) to create a larger, more modern, GOLD desk that definitely has the awesome style she craved!

Antiqued Christmas Mirror with Text

With Halloween officially behind us, it’s time to bring on the Christmas projects. I mean if Big Lots and Kmart can show Christmas commercials, we can definitely get our Christmas craft on, right? Speaking of Christmas projects, my dear friend Jen from Tatertots & Jello has already created a couple of amazing ones! I am just loving this mirror she made for the holidays by distressing it and then adding some vinyl. I’d take it hands-down over her Pottery Barn inspiration, and it was less than one-third the cost.
