Something Old, Something New - Day Four!

Day Four of our Something Old, Something New Design Team challenge is about hats and holidays and home decor - we hope these projects inspire you as much as they've inspired us!

Xyron makes creating your own home decor a ton of fun - and Van Nguyen shows us just that!  She took this embellished lampshade idea:

and created a darling lampshade for her son's nursery using just a few supplies - and on her blog she shows you how to make your own!

Angela Ploegman gives you three makeovers in one!  She took this house luminary (one of her projects previously posted on

and actually "re-skinned" it to turn it in to a Christmas luminary!  On her blog today she shares instructions as well as two other house luminaries with us.

Clearly our designers were in a holiday mood this week - Sharon Callis was inspired by this princess hat:

to create this fabulous witch's hat centerpiece!  On her blog she gives you step by step instructions for creating your own - I know you are going to save this idea for Halloween!

We can't talk about the holidays without New Year's Eve - and Denise Hahn took this NYE project idea:

and created a fun, sparkly tiara that you might not want to wait until December 31st to wear!  Head on over to her blog for a great tutorial!

Don't forget to check out yesterday's blog post for a chance to win a Xyron 2.5" create-a-sticker...and stay tuned tomorrow for even more chances! Happy Thursday everybody!
