Happy Wednesday! This addition of What I wore Wednesday includes 2 easy outfits as well as an awesomely easy DIY ruffled scarf tutorial. A quick and easy project that leaves you with a fun and feminine scarf for you or anybody on your gift giving list this winter. Don’t worry if you don’t sew… all you need to make this great scarf is some fabric (or an old t-shirt) and a pair of scissors. Anybody can make these and I suggest you make a few in several different colors, because you are going to love them.
The holidays are quickly approaching and I am always thinking of ways that I can help them “give” to the people that they love the most. My hope is to teach my children the importance of thinking of others this time of the year, and that the simplest gifts are often the most precious to the people that love them most. This year we are making personalized mugs that include the kids handwriting and something that they love to do with that family member on it. Dollar store mugs turn into a sweet sentiment and a special personalized gift for the kids to give this Christmas.
Here is a quick trick I use around the holidays to transform framed pictures into temporary holiday decorations. Making those framed pictures fit in with your holiday decor is super simple, and it takes just minutes to transform them to fit the season. Pieces of fabric inserted into a frame can be as simple or festive as you like and make a big impact without a lot of money or time. You can then add window clings, or wall decals to make your frame sparkle and shine with Christmas flare without damaging the glass. It is a totally temporary solution for the holidays, super inexpensive, and easy too!
I officially have two kids and school, and I love the idea of them helping make little gifts to give the kids in their class during the holiday season. I like the idea of them making something that they can give that is simple, and inexpensive, and most importantly gives them the experience of giving! These little Reindeer noses treat bags are as adorable as can be and are not only fun to make, but fun for the kids to give as well. Some free printables, small gift bags and whoppers candies make this gift kid friendly and fun!
