(This is a re-post of a project that I have up on the Hazel & Ruby blog today.)
Happy Holidays, Hazel & Ruby fans!
I’m here today sharing a super frugal and super easy handmade gift that I made for my son. It’s a magnetic noteboard for him to put up in his room. And check out how easy it is to make.
I picked up some Star Wars magnets on the cheap around Black Friday, I had this awesome Cherry Bomb Glitter Blast spray from our friends over at Krylon, and I used the Blindside Alpha from Hazel & Ruby. My base? A cookie sheet from the dollar store!
1. Lay out letters on top of the cookie sheet. I also added an arrow from the Everyday Shapes stencil set.
2. Spray several layers of Glitter Blast until the color and coating is to your liking.
3. Allow to dry completely – (I let mine dry overnight) – and then peel off the letters.
4. Outline letters with a Sharpie.
5. Your super cheap, super easy, yet from-the-heart gift is ready to be gifted!
It’s Monday of Christmas week!
I’m almost ready. I have not baked yet. And I still have to wrap the gifts for my co-workers. And then I should be done. Should be. There’s always one more thing that gets added to the list, it seems.
Today I’ve got some cards to share. Truth be told, I only made a few cards this year. The rest were store-bought. I know. And, I didn’t send out near as many as I wanted to. So lazy. I like Valentine’s for cards better anyway
I’m back today with a couple more Christmas packages that I wrapped with scrapbooking paper and coordinating embellishments from Pebbles’ Home for Christmas collection. I would love to do more of this next year, but I would have to start even earlier than my crazy October start and I think that’s impossible. And even if I could, I wonder if the adhesive on the heavy paper would stay put if I wrapped much earlier? Hmmm…
As of this writing today, there are only 15 days, 12 hours and blah blah blah minutes until Christmas. Oh boy! Are you ready?
I have powered through wrapping and just have a few things left to wrap, and then plan the Christmas menu. It’s almost always the same, but I need to get it all written down for Christmas Eve through Christmas Day and see what things I need to pick up at the grocery store.
I’ve crafted a little bit here and there lately. I saw these decorative clips on Pinterest and wanted to make some to add to gift packaging. So I made a few using Fancy Pants Designs’ Oh, Deer! collection.
How are you coming along with your Christmas plans?
