DIY Mini Wreath Piñatas

Mini piñatas?  Yes, please!  I just about wet myself (Just kidding. Maybe.) when I saw that We R Memory Keepers was releasing DIY mini piñata kits.  I got a chance to play with the circle piñata kit and, with the holidays in mind, thought I would alter the boxes a bit to create DIY Mini Wreath Piñatas.

These DIY Mini Wreath Piñatas are perfect for parties, gifts, or home décor!

DIY Crepe Paper Poinsettia

I love making paper flowers! I have been a huge fan of crepe paper flowers for the longest time, but only recently started making my own flowers and patterns.  I am super excited to share my first DIY crepe paper poinsettia pattern with you today!  

Luxurious, easy to work with, and hard to wreck, crepe paper is the ideal medium for making paper flowers and plants.  It stretches and bends in ways that make leaves and petals look extra lifelike.  This DIY Crepe Paper Poinsettia plant will make your home come alive at the holidays for years to come.

Mini Embroidery Hoop Wreath Ornaments

I love making handmade Christmas ornaments.  I look forward to adding to our collection each year.  Embroidery hoop ornaments are my favorite type of ornament to make because they just ooze handmade charm (in a good way).  My Christmas tree may not be color coordinated or matchy-matchy, but it sure does bring back a lot of sweet Christmas memories.

Stamp a Scene with Paper Piecing

Even with the start of school this week, I am still dreaming of a relaxing tropical vacation.  Sigh.  Since a trip to far off isles isn't in my near future, I'll keep living vicariously through card making for now.

Monkey Thanks a Bunch Banana Gift Tag

I craft a good game, but I am a gift giving slacker.  I have so much fun putting together fun paper-crafted gift ideas, but they rarely leave my craft room.  I think I have finally come up with a simple gift idea that requires minimum effort.  Have a look...
