Twelve Days of Christmas - Day Nine!

Our two-week blog hop with Xyron, Design Memory Craft for Faber-Castell and Creative Imaginations is almost over - but I can't think of a better way to distract me from my turkey preparation than some fun DIY gift ideas! Today Ann Corbiere-Scott has three fabulous projects to share AND step-by-step instructions to complete each one!  Thanks Ann!

Creating your own canvas home decor is so popular - and I love Ann's idea of creating a winter themed canvas for the holiday season.

Looking for an inexpensive gift idea that will brighten any child's Christmas?  How about an up-cycled jar filled with their favorite candy?

Now...I have NEVER seen one of these before - but I am SUPER excited to make one, and we happen to have an empty plastic bottle in our recycling bin! An up-cycled soda bottle mailer - what a fantastic idea for mailing smaller/more fragile gifts this season.

Head on over to Ann's blog for supply lists and instructions on how to complete these fun projects on your own. Have you been loving the projects you've seen over the last two weeks?  Then Design Memory Craft by Faber-Castell has a Cyber Monday treat for you!  Check out their blog for the great deal they will be offering their online customers.  Happy Shopping!
