(DIY) Pumpkin Stacks (placecard/name holders)






I wanted to blog about these place holders because after all Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. These little pumpkin stacks are festive, easy to make, and a conversational piece. I don't have a diy picture tutorial for these however, I will do my best to explain how I made them. You can tell by looking at the photos there are pretty much explanatory.

Items: you will need are haystacks bought @ the hobby store.
Glue gun w/sticks, festive buttons, leaves, pumpkin garland, name tags, and tooth picks.

Dirctions:
Glue the leaves to the back of the haystacks, then place your buttons or arrange your garland to suit your look. Glue then on well. (hay+glue=HOT!)
Glue name tags to the top of the toothpicks, insert toothpicks into haystack.

DIY ( Washi tape headband ) Joyeux Noel





This washi tape headband is wrapped with a festive glow and finish off with a holiday bow. With it's uniqueness this is the accessory you have been looking for. I will show you how to decorate your very own washi tape headband.









Items you wlll need:

1 Headband 1 1/2 wide (bone white)
4 strands of washi tape (design of your choice) 16" long 15mm wide
1 Glue w/gun
1/2 yard of ribbon for the bow



Start by wrapping your washi tape over the bottom like so. This will help secure your tape from moving and keep it covered. Wrap your washi tape up and around your headband.... add another color and repeat.  







                                                       ....don't forget to cover underneath.

DIY (8" mini latter) Leap of Faith




I make these mini latter's as gifts for my family and friends. This mini latter fits perfect in my Christmas village. I have it displayed next to the tree in the middle of town. My "Leap of Hope" fits perfect in my dollhouse. I have it displayed next to the sewing room. Both mini latter's stand about 8" tall. 




Items you will need:

1  Latter
2  Stands of String beads 13" inch each  (your choice of style) 
1  Glue gun w/sticks 
2 different wrapping papers mini squares (cut to fit) 
13" ribbon of your choice
1 1" Styrofoam square shape 
1 1/2" Styrofoam square shape 



Start off by working from the top down.  Glue your first bead under the top of the latter. Then weave the string in and out of the latter. Glue the last of the sting under the later on the bottom plank.   

Work both sides. 




Try and make it look festive for whatever occasion it is. 






Cut your Styrofoam squares to shape and fit the top of your latter.




                                                      Wrap each one using different paper.



With the smaller one on top glue them together. 
Tie one bow around both.



Glue the gifts to the top of the latter. 


I would add snow or glitter where needed.
