Festive Gourd Ornaments and Baubles

I am having way too much fun playing with gourds and I just have to share!

      - I decorated the two larger gourds in the background last winter and I have enjoyed them so much I decided to make a couple tiny ornaments using the same designs.

       - I had one little gourd that just begged and begged to be a snowman! 

       - During the past year, I tried my hand at drying  a bunch of those colorful, knobby, little gourds we see in every fall produce display.  And I found a very simple way to make them very festive!

Making Wheat Stars and Festive Photo Frames!

This started out to be a tutorial to show you how to make wheat stars. And then I got this idea that they could be used as wheat star frames for photos of your kids, pets or favorite relatives!  And then I got to playing around with fabrics and... well I am getting ahead of my self!

Let's start with making the wheat star!

Antonio's Gift - How to Make Pressed Fall Leaves Into Sparkly Ornaments

Antonio gave me these beautiful leaves the day I went to his house to teach him to make fall leaf candles.  And since they make perfect Christmas tree ornaments, I just had to share!

I love how children can teach you things you would have never thought of making or doing. We started the afternoon together making fall leaf candles.  I had also brought along red, blue and silver glitter so Antonio and his sister, Sophia, could decorate pine cones.

Sharing a new Advent Calendar

I have been wanting to make this giant Advent Calendar for almost 10 years!   10 YEARS!  How many of you have had projects on the back burner that long???

Martha started it all with her Advent Calendar using Christmas cards as the scenes behind the windows. I have been smitten with the idea ever since! I started collecting beautiful Christmas cards right away!
