Dollar Tree Christmas 2019 | 35 Christmas DIYs

Feb 25, 2020
Hello my crafty DIY girls, today I've put together the ultimate playlist of all my DIYs I've made during the month of November and December, so grab your craft scissors in hand and your hot glue and let's get crafting! . I'm going to jump right into the first craft that's meant for your front door. I'm going to take these supplies that I picked up from the Dollar Tree. Start by removing all of the Candice fabric from the frames. Now these frames are high quality thick. pieces of wood, which is why I decided to use them. Lots of people have always been trying to figure out how to create a window sash out of popsicle sticks and all kinds of crazy stuff, but this is the fastest way to make a beautiful farmhouse window sash, so it will take two of the ends and glue them together and then repeat it on the other two and then once you've got those blue ones together you'll glue the middle one to each other so now I'm going to have four pieces glued together and to make it a bit more strong because you know it's still hot glue you're going to flip it over and take some popsicle sticks and glue them at the seams this will make it really tough and strong without it breaking or falling apart on you if you just drop it then it'll take a little bit of brown paint and water and thin it down to create a wood stain now you don't have to do this if you're planning on painting it white which is what you'll see me do next but I want you to see that if you're more of a wood loving person the MA dera, this is also a very nice option.

I just wanted you to see that if you take a little bit of brown paint and a little bit of water it makes it look like a stained old piece of wood because I want mine to be white and I love the white color painted on things my husband he makes fun of me all the time because i am always bringing things into our house and painting them white i am going to take a little bit of this pai nt with a small brush and lightly apply it because i still want the wood grain to show through.

I really love the rusty farmhouse look but I also love the weathered paint look so I'm just going to lightly brush it all over my frame and then once I'm done painting it I'll set it aside and I'll let it dry and move on elsewhere. Don't forget to flip around your frame at different angles so you don't miss painting one side, that happens to me all the time, now you're going to take your wreath and I picked this up from the floral section, it wasn't in the Christmas decorations, you'll have to go to it. section and you will find all kinds of reefs that they have there.

I took a photo that had pinecones and a cotton stem and the stems from the Christmas

tree

and cut it all apart, as well as the vine that I picked up from Hobby Lobby. I've had a box with leaves for a long time. I thought the different green textures would look really nice on this wreath. Once I have all my greenery glued in place, I'm going to add some color and that cotton stem. I think this looks so nice and natural and more real than fake, you know what I mean then? I'm going to add my berries and my cotton stem and I think at this point it looks so stinky make sure you hot glue everything in place just because it keeps a nice look in the long run especially when you pack things upstairs when I'm done Christmas, things can get squashed and broken, now you're going to take the two birds you pick up from the Dollar Tree and pop their little clips on their butts, right? i need these just because we are going to be gluing them in place so give your birds a nice dollop of hot glue then place them where you would like them to be and i think this looks so cute it looks like they have their own little nest inside this wreath and fun enough every winter we perform Usually have a couple of birds lay eggs in our wreath at the front door and then to finish off the wreath you'll take a piece of twine, two of the jingle bells, there's 12 in a pack so you can use them for other things but I'm going to just take two of them and tie them to the end of a string this will allow them to hang nice and look really pretty and then you'll just drape them over the bottom of your wreath and hot glue it in place and let it sit for a minute now if you miss that burlap ribbon at the bottom I decided to remove it last so just ignore it its there but to hold your crown rona to her window frame you're going to take a piece of twine you're going to run it through the back you don't want to see it from the front so just make sure you go down the back of the wreath and then you're going to tie it to the window frame window and then to make sure it stays nice and secure you're going to cut some scissors off that extra twine so you don't see it coming out the front and hot glue it in place now to make a hanger on top you're going to take some twine I use a thick twine that I twisted from the Dollar Tree rope and then just add a loop.

I'm so excited to share with you all when I found out that they had these two different glassware that fit perfectly together. I knew I wanted to make a vintage lantern what you are going to do to start is take some black paint and with the mason jar that has a handle you are going to go over it only once, you don't need to go over it more than once because you are going to do a little bit of distress in just a few minutes, so you're going to paint it all black and then you're going to take a little bit of white and a little bit of that black and mix it up and you're done.
I'll just keep adding layers of this gray color and this will make it look more like a metal and as you keep nging it and brushing it, you'll have a paper towel next to you so you can keep wiping up the paint if you get too much on it and just keep going tapping it and getting lighter tones as you go, I love it. this technique and i find this is so therapeutic when i do it once you get it all set and dry you are going to go ahead and take some e6000 no one talks about it but this really smells so be careful when you are working with it add a little of e6000 around the base of this vase and then attach it directly to the handle jar. the excess don't use a paper towel because it will just get stuck and then you'll have a big mess on your hands, then you'll add a ribbon around it with a simple bow and then you'll take a few extra pieces of ribbon with little dovetails on the end and glue them to the side up and down so it looks like you have a very big thick beautiful ribbon.
Here I am again with that beaded Gartland. I'm going to circle it once and twist it into place. I love these things because you can twist the ends on your finger and it looks so cute you could stop here but I like things to overlap so I'm going to take this really pretty pine pick that has some snow on it and put it on her place and I will help. Secure it further with this beaded garland. I'm going to take it and twist it so it stays in place without falling off. keep it in place and then I'm going to take some berries from that same spike that I used on the Evergreen and I'm going to sneak it in from behind and glue it all in place now I don't know why I lost the loop footage but I added the loop to it however I can see and I also added a pineapple now after I finished everything I decided I wanted it to look a little nicer so I found this little plate that is also in the same places they keep the vases and frames at the Dollar Tree and it I added to the background with a little more ease once. it's glued and dried in place you're going to take some more of that paint and just to stress it out just like you did with the base below we're going to make some more clam toppers for my glam girls you're going to take pearls from the

dollar

tree

, they have different sizes there and a little bit of wire.
I used two strands of wire and the way I strung my beads was very simple. First I went with the wires together, pulled on a little bead, then opened them up and put on. a large bead on a wire reattach the wires and reattach a small bead doing this allows the beads to snap into place without shifting once you place it inside your ornament and it looks so pretty and elegant you can see here that the larger beads stay in place because I use those small beads, then when you're done stringing the beads, you'll go ahead and take the wire and place it inside your clear trim.
I think this is very fancy and pretty and it's the simplest thing to do and it's really fun to thread these beads once you have everything in you're going to take your cap to your ornament put that back on and we're going to give it a little more glamour so I took a little Mod Podge just because I like it I put it all over the top of the ornament and now I'm going to sprinkle glitter all over so I first did a sugar glitter making sure to dust it lightly then decided to go back and add A little more of this Mod Podge all over the top of the topper to make it look like Frost had settled all over once I put the sugar glitter on I came back with a thicker glitter which I loved I got this glitter from Target Simply I think it's so pretty they have a lot of different colors on t their chunkier chunky glitter and then I also used it to smear the sides a little bit and then to make it a little more fancy I took a thin white ribbon that you can pick up on the Dollar Tree I didn't tie it I just wrapped it using some hot glue and set it in place and repeated the process twice so four strands would fall down then I took the lace ribbon they have at the Dollar Tree tied a bow and I hot glued it on and yes. after everyone's requests there will be a lasso video soon the next one is the easiest DIY Oh guys I'm so excited to share this one when I saw you guys come out with these at Christmas I just knew I wanted to turn this into a farmhouse DIY so I took off this cheesy silver tinsel garland that was on it and if you have this cone that is perfect now the gap between the jump rings is too wide for what we're going to be. doing so I'm going to take some of this string and again this chamber e of the String on the Dollar Tree I just untwisted it and it gave me three thick pieces of string so I'm going to cut that piece off and glue it in place and you can see that I'm making smaller jump ring sections that will allow me to be able to hit something on it at another time and when you do, you'll be sure to go between the other two, the bottom one and also. like the one on top and make sure you glue them in place well so there is no structural issue and it will fall apart over time once you have glued them in place you will see you are ready for the next step so you're going to take some drop cloth.
I bought a huge, huge, huge drop cloth at Home Depot and then over time I've been tearing it up and using it for my DIYs so you're going to take your tree. and you're going to figure out how wide you want your strips to be and once you do that, you're going to make a cut in the fabric and you're just going to rip it all the way down. I love doing it this way because it frays the edges and saves me from having to do that work myself, it actually speeds up the process you're going to take. those strips of fabric you're going to pinch the end and this is to create a nice crease at the beginning and you're just going to hot glue it in place now we're going to make a ruffle around this tree and i'm going to show you how to do that it's the easiest thing to create a flyer, but in case you don't know, I'm going to walk you through the steps at first, so first what you're going to do is create a line of hot glue, pull it down, press it into place and then you're going to do a hot glue bead and you'll also want to make sure you're reaching the bottom and again no bald spots so now apply a small bead of glue pull it back push it down into place let it dry for a second and then done. ng to pull back that fabric so you can put your next line of glue so it just goes back and forth between line dot line dot and then you'll create the ruffle with no problem when you get to the end of that first section of the ring.
I jump, you're going to take your fabric, you're going to take your scissors and you're going to cut it because you don't need any of that extra and then you're just going to take the end of that fabric and you're going to flip it over and hot glue it in place, so like I'm doing here you're going to fold it down and I'll show you one more time just in case you missed it and to make sure it stays in place I've decided to just put some hot glue on it fold it under and then I'm going Gonna put some hot glue on the starting points and then I'm going to heat glue it in place and now you're done around your first row and it's just going to move all the way up now to make sure the bottom p stay in place and won't look weird over time.
I'm just going to glue little pieces here and there where the crease is in the back to glue it in place. when you get to the top and after you've gone all the way around you'll just complete that last bit and the top if you noticed i was pinching the fabric to make sure it's nice and smooth the fabric towards the top gets less and less just because there's less surface area to have to go around so it's really not that complicated, just keep goingtearing it up like I'm doing here now that you have it all covered in fabric you can technically decorate you could leave it like that with just the fabric if that's your style and you like it or you can add a little flare on top which is more my style like this I'm going to add some of the photos that I just cut into little bits and I'm going to add a nice glitter bow, I just think these photos are so pretty and I can't wait to show you what I'm going to do with them.
Now raise your hand if you can't stand stickers that just won't come off. tell you right now that when stickers break like this for barcodes it's simply because the company is trying to cut it down all they have to do is pay a couple cents more and have the nicest stickers on the bottom so this drives me crazy once you get that label off or if you don't just go ahead and add some red paint to your jars giving it a nice coat all around and then let it dry it will do that to all three jars and while it's they're drying and you set them aside then you're going to move on to ripping some more strips or if you've already done them then you're good to go and just wait for the jars to dry I'm going to fray them some more and just pull out a few of those fibers and then I'll just heat g Take them around the jar now I did something like this for a fall video I did a couple months ago where I wrote falls on them but this one is going to be fun and it's going to be so pretty I can't wait to to show you what the O seems to be in the middle so when you get to the end you'll just fold that over and glue it in place and then once your jar is ready you'll move on to the other two now use a pencil and just draw on your J and your Y and make sure you line up your jars so the letters are even and consistent this is the easiest part girls you are going to go right over the J with your sharpie and then remember we are not going to do the O because I have something planned for the O and the best part about it is there's no drying time it's just right away you're going to take one of these garland ties and you're going to cut his hair because from now on it's a little too much thick so that it can be used for a mini wreath, so you're going to take your scissors and just go down the wreath leaving some greenery and just snip off a bunch of that excess, then push that out of the way.
It's funny because it stuck to my hands and to the table, like magnetized, you're going to spin around to create your little mini crown, you're going to test the size before you cut it, and then once you have it in place, you're going to cut it to size and then keep folding it until you get the perfect shape you want. I wanted more of a long o than a short and plump rounded one. Kind of a look just because it's going to match the J and you better know Rey ended up looking like this. we all love it so you'll add some hot glue and put it in your jar and then you'll add some cute little berries and trim any of that greenery that might be a little naughty that maybe you missed at first grab some foam squares You can also pick them up from the Dollar Tree, cut them to size and add a light.
Put some hot glue on the bottom of each one and then tuck them in nice and snug so they don't come loose. This will allow you to place all of your picks without there being any issues with them. falling and moving on you then cut out those three picks I showed you earlier and place them inside your jars creating a really pretty look for your holiday tables or entryway where ever you decide to plan on using these jars and then to finish the look I'm going to take some of this Kingham tape I bought at Walmart.
I love this tape. It's over in your craft section and I'm just going to make a bow and it still looks a bit Plain Jane so I decided. to take a button and really finish the look there is something about adding a little button to the inside of a bow that makes me so happy every time i do it i always love the way it looks and then here is the finished look if you're enjoying this video don't forget to hit the subscribe button because 2020 is going to be my best DIY year ever but now Dollar Tree carries this rope and I love it when they find out that if you untwist it it thins out the thickness of the rope and a one piece is perfect for the consistency of Wrapping these candy canes you can pick them up too so I went through the end and frayed the string a bit to cover it up put a line of hot glue then started wrapping around your candy cane maybe where you are I'm working with hot glue, you're going to see me behind my finger in just a second.
I put my finger right on it Heidi but I know we all have those moments so be careful when you're working with the hot glue once you get to the end you're going to put some hot glue right on the tip and work again very carefully and cautiously look at how I twisted it all the way into a circle and then I'm going to cut it out put some hot glue on it make sure it's not too hot and then press that string right into place to decorate this candy cane and so it will look a little more special i took these berries that were on a flower stem and just pulled out what i didn't need so i could get a little more coverage for the hot glue i put i put down a piece of greenery i got from the green twist ties they also sell at the

dollar

tree and then I just glued on the berries which made it look so adorable then to finish the look I decided to tie a ribbon and I just think this looks so cute indo and this ribbon didn't come from the Dollar Tree, but they have a lot of Christmas ribbon options there.
I also decided to add a button to my button collection. Can you tell I like to collect them with some hot glue and a button on it completes the look once you have your canvases set up you will take your washi tape and create large letters on the canvas. Now I find that this thickness of washi tape is just the perfect one to be able to create these that you don't have t If you worry about having a Cricut or having to paint perfectly, just rub the washi tape really well, it will stay in place and then you can paint it now.
I recommend that you use your washi tape to paint away from the tape as you can see I'm doing here when you paint towards it no matter how nice the tape is it can still get under it because it's a liquid so you'll see I'm removing my first coat of paint and then once it dried I went over it again two more times to make sure the paint was really consistent and even across the canvas once the paint is dry you are ready to go ahead and remove the lettering , you can see that my canvases were still a bit wet, but I couldn't wait anywhere.
I wanted to see what it looked like and I went ahead and picked it up. I recommend being patient, not like I did here, but the longer you let it dry. Less chance of paint getting under but it's not that cool, can you imagine all the possibilities of words and things you can do to this sign? Then when the paint is really dry, take some string, you'll cut pieces of string along each side of the letter. I took some hot glue and tapped my twine into it and then continued around the other sides of the letters, then once you're done circling around your letters you'll take your canvases and make sure they're all right. they all face the right direction because you'll be gluing them in place to create the sign so what i like to do i took my washi tape it's the perfect thickness and put it between the two canvases then used two pieces. of twine I went ahead and put them in place blocking them so they can hang on the wall when I put up my banner.
Hot glue is a little tricky in this area because you can burn your fingers so I like to use a popsicle stick so I can make sure I didn't have a problem burning my finger and then I'll continue to past my sign between each locked joint , so everything is perfectly spaced and hanging on the wall it doesn't have any weird hanging issues you don't have to use a staple gun but I used a staple gun just because I felt it would hold it in place a little better over time You know things can slip and fall when you're dealing with heat glue, but you don't have to because in the next step, when you take a piece of felt, cut it out, and put it on the back, it'll really lock everything in place, plus it has a very nice finish look and then on top. of the canvas, this is the top of the entrance.
I went ahead and put a longer piece to hang on the sign, then when you flip it over you'll see you're ready to put your oh I took it on. my Dollar Tree bead Garland and I created a bigger oh so I could put it in there and it looks so pretty all together and then to make it even prettier I took some more yarn and tied a bow and put it right on the bottom you could use just a regular traditional ribbon but I had this fabric on hand and loved it so much I went over my head and made a bow so I could put it on top of my sign leave a comment below to let me know if you'd like to make a video on bows because I really love making fabric bows and I always get people asking me about them so let me know if you want to see a video on that in the future then to make sure the bow is there nice and nice, first I place a small piece of felt. i attached with the strap i created earlier to hang my sign and then i took the hot glue and made sure everything was in place i cut the back of that fabric and there you have the finished sign we are taking their big

christmas

baubles that they i got at the dollar tree and i'm going to grab some fabric you can use any type of c fabric so if you don't have one of those little farms you can choose another type of fabric but i thought it would look really nice with this fabric tan and it's very simple to make this topper you're going to take a strip of hot glue run it over the topper rub it in place cut it at the top where the stem of the topper is and then continue going around until you've completely covered your topper now I will say that before I did the hot glue I tried it with Mod Podge and friends don't do that, it was so messy huh?
Glue is much easier to do so it's really a Pinterest fail if you try to use Mod Podge drop cloth I think it looks a bit dirty and old. I really liked the hot glue version, so once you've covered your embellishment with the drop cloth, then it's going to take some of that string we used. before and you're just going to wrap that golden part to the top of the stem of th The garnish you're going to go around and hide that golden a little bit because it looks really pretty like that and then I'm going to take the Mod Podge again and I'm going to add a little to two leaves to create a bit of greenery on top of this ornament, so I use every bit of these flowers.
I even use the wire sometimes when I need them. Never throw away your supplies because there is always something you can do with them. I'm going to rub this Mod Podge all over the trim, add a bit of glitter to it, and then make it look like the frost has settled on these leaves. a little bit so they don't stick out funny when you do that allow it to crinkle up and then it looks just as beautiful as if it were naturally on a branch and then use some more of those little balls of glitter that I picked up from the Dollar Tree I put on it a dollop of hot glue to six or seven of them and then i repeated that two more times to create that berry look they are a little hard to work with so if you have craft tweezers i wouldn't recommend this because it would prevent you from burning your finger , but if not you can't use your fingers like I'm using here because I'm crazy about this tape you don't have to add it but I love how it looked so I went ahead and added two strips of this tape. and i noticed i cut them i noticed i cut them in a dovetail shape on the bottom and on the top which will allow them to sit nice on top and look very pretty on the bottom next craft on What we're going to go through is a bird's nest and these and the supplies I picked up from the Dollar Tree.
I loved these little birds and knew right away that I wanted to make them as the winning birds' love nests. I don't know, so I picked up this styrofoam. shape is such an odd shape but i started thinking about what the bigger base would look like f or a bird nest so i took some really thick jute twine they have at the dollar tree they wrapped it around the base twice and then flipped it over and then they coiled it into a spiral at the bottom of the birds nest now this is going to create a very nice final look when done and where it looks like it is a quality craft from the store I like to try to make my crafts look as good as more store bought possible rather than look like i made this at home for a fun project but if you want to skip this step you can make a bundle of this the twine worked great for everything and i didn't have to buy a second one so , once you're done twisting around the bottom, you'll move to the top and circle a layer on top and warm. paste all that in place, now comes the next part, whichit's the messiest part, it's going to take all these little fibers that you might pick up from the dollar tree and keep putting hot glue on it and massaging it. instead the more you squeeze them and interlock your finger It's just turning it around, it helps it not ride up a little better.
You'll see me doing it a lot at this stage and then you'll just keep hot gluing them until you get to all the way. all and then on top i took a bunch and put it around in a circle so that way and you see i'm massaging it all into place so that way when i hot glue it it's already in its shape and I don't have to worry about trying to block it from each other so it doesn't fall apart and it looks better quality like this and then once you have a bunch of Hot Glue on there go put it on and then massage it into the other pieces that are already there helping to fix everything in place.
Now you can see that there's still that part in the middle, so I just put a little more hot glue on it. there and I took the last of the loose fibers that I had there and tucked them in then go ahead and take your bird I put the first one just because I wanted it to be able to be the guide for everything that I tucked into the nest and just put that little bird I think this one it's the girl bird because the cardinal birds that are girls are actually have brown on them the red birds are actually the boy birds we learned that when we moved to Missouri once you have your bird on I'm going to take it off a bit of ribbon at the bottom I thought this looks really pretty and farmhouse like that I wrapped it in ribbon tied another really cute bow and then put it in that seam so you can't see it and it looks nice and done and then you can move to your little tree like forest scene.
I don't know what to call it but you'll see in just a second obviously the ribbon is optional but I think it looks so pretty when it has a ribbon on it. I'm just a fan of ties. The next part here is that tree like forest that I was talking about. I'm going to have some pineapple. s some leaves that were on this twig that I got from the Dollar Tree and then I'm going to lightly brush them with white paint and glitter and that makes it look more frosty like it's a winter home decorating project because you know this is for Christmas and then it's very simple to make things look like frost and snow on them just take some white paint and just dab it up and add some glitter once it's all dry you're ready to assemble it and this depends really from your own eye and whatever you think looks good I put my first sprig on that garland stem and then put my bird on and then just built from there to complete that whole look once you have everything in place let it dry and you will have some really lovely new

christmas

bird nests.
First print out the printable I've provided in the link below and once you're done and it's on a nice piece of cardstock, you're going to cut out the little sheet. for music paper now i like to use a thick cardstock but basically you can use whatever paper you have on hand then when you've cut it out you're going to take some hot glue and you're going to put a little bead on top, make sure you leave a spot at the top with the white cardstock so you can have enough room to put the popsicle stick there and also at the bottom, but the side of the sheet of paper is going to be clipped very close to the musical notes, then once the hot glue has dried you will take a pair of scissors and cut the ends so they are not rounded and fit the music paper nicely you will go ahead and place that on the bottom as well and again repeat the process of just cutting that stick once the front is done you'll flip it over and do the exact same thing on the back of your topper when you get to the top of the topper, although you're going to take a little pe small piece of twine and you're going to hot glue it first you're going to cut it to the desired length you want and then go ahead and hot glue it in place so it's nice and snug.
Out of these, you can give them as a Christmas ornament to the friends you care about and love, and the good thing is that you can even make your favorite Christmas carol song. I think this is the sweetest and easiest project to be able to give. someone for Christmas then to add a little more farmhouse style to it I'm going to take some brown paint with white water so it becomes more of a stain rather than a paint because I want the wood of the popsicle sticks still shows. I'm going to brush it lightly and make sure it absorbs into the wood.
It's a really easy process and it dries really fast. Then, once it's all dry, it's ready to hang on your Christmas tree. Can you imagine? all the fun things you can do with this ornament this next When I saw these snowman ornaments I thought they were so cute I wanted to make them into a wreath so I picked up several of them and then besides this bright red ribbon I they had at the dollar tree I. i noticed they were the perfect width to sneak under the berries on the snowman's hat so i could help him carry it around the back and tie it to the wreath shape, so once that I did that and put that first guy in place and hot glued the back of him so he wouldn't slide or move.
I went ahead and made all the other snowmen and you can see here that hot glueing them in place is the best thing to keep them from moving on you, so I took some of this mesh garland ribbon. I forget what this is called I always forget but I took it and brought it in the middle pieces and then folded it over so I did it twice to create a really puffy looking bow and then the Dollar Tree has these twist bows really cool garland i thought t was so clever. I hadn't seen them before and I really love them.
In fact, I want to go back and pick up a few more because they came in handy for craft projects. I went ahead and took that twist hello and then just twist it into that loop once you've gone all the way making them in the desired places go ahead and get your Christmas balls which you can also pick up from the dollar tree and then you'll stick them in the places to help. again fill in your crown and hide that crown shape around the back of your crown and you can add as many or as few as you want but I knew I wanted to add some pineapples so I didn't do as many because I thought the pineapples would make it look very cute too then to fill out the crown a bit more I took a little more of that garland twist and just went over a few more places where I noticed it needed more fluff and more filler and it just made it look really cool once you got it all over the road With that, ok these cones they don't sell at dollar tree but you can find them at your local park when you go for a walk especially this time of year because they start to drop if your cones are closed there are all kinds of tips . online where you can put them in your oven to help them open up and kill any germs or bacteria we've had them forever so i've been keeping them in bags and they were already open so i glued mine in place and then this is the fun part.
I think about this whole project. I took some white paint and went over the pine cones and twisty Christmas tree wrappers they sell at the Dollar Tree and lightly tapped everything to make it look like there was snow. i settled on this wreath and then you can sprinkle on some glitter as you go if you want glitter yes and if not white paint looks pretty too and then you're going to take the white paint as well and i went over the edge of the snowman from her hat and the top of the hat just to make it look all cohesive and it looks like she's in the snow and then this garland of ribbons was from the dollar tree too.
I love this tape so much that it's a bit messy when you work with it because it has a thick sheen to it. on it and it can fall off as you move it but it's so pretty it's in a ribbon shape so I loved it so I tied a bow on myself and then tied it to the bottom of my crown and I used another one of those bows from twisted garlands so i can keep it in place and here is the finished look please like this video because it helps my channel and means a lot to me. to work into a wool snowflake the reason I love doing this is because you can make your snowflakes much bigger in size and design you can do whatever you want with popsicle sticks so i decided to go with a really simple pattern just to show you how to make them i took five popsicle sticks i brought them to the center in a star point and then i took a few little bits that i just cut with my scissors and glued them together now its better to glue both sides because as they can see it's a little flimsy when you only glue one side so I flipped it over to make sure all the pieces if they're loose they're in place and then I'm going to take two more pieces of cut out popsicle sticks and include them and now it's going to be really tough and ready for you to thread everywhere.
I also wanted to add some little bursts on top of the popsicle sticks to make them look even more like a snowflake because from now on it just looks like a star and then you'll notice I put a little popsicle burst stem on one side and then I went through the bottom like that so it doesn't get too bulky on one side and it just works better that way after you're done with all of that you're going to take your yarn and then you're going to start wrapping your snowflake now this is kind of silly doing this so this is a cool thing to do while watching a movie wrap up a bunch of sections put on some hot glue wrap some more put some more hot glue on and just you do this so it's nice and secure and has a nice finished look when you're done and things don't move or shift over time when you start to get to the top of the snowflake you'll just want to r slow down a bit to make sure you get the ends covered my sleeve but overall i think this looks great once it's all done when you get to the end of a snowflake stem you'll be back down the snowflake and then you'll work your way up to the next stem and when you're done this is the complete look, the next DIY is a bit more labor intensive but really fun to try if you don't already have a little house for your nativity scene so what i did is i took my tallest trim which was my wise man and figured out the roofline at the center point and how tall and wide i needed the rear skirting to be once i had everything measured i took my exacto knife and i cut now we are going to figure out the sides of the house or the manger and you are going to take another piece of foam string and you are going to create your cut lines and then you are going to cut those as well and you will need two of those one for each side of the walls and then once have all the lines in place again you're going to just cut them now we're going to work on the roof we're going to go to the highest point and then have a little bit of a hangover and that'll let us know how long we need that piece and then we're going to decide also what thickness we want it to be.
I want it to be the same thickness but a bit of hangover from my side walls, then go ahead and cut as well. I'm going to have a printable link down below with the full size of my manger scene so you can cut them out and figure out the dimensions you need without having to d or all here and maybe miss one so if you want to do this there will be a printable link below, what you're going to do is take the thickest popsicle stick you pick up on the dollar. Tree and you're going to need two packs of these and you're going to cut off the rounded parts that you don't want because we want to create that wooden back wall and then once you have the top and I cut the bottom off, you're just going to hot glue them together in place along the back wall of your manger and once you have everything hot glued in place you're going to work on the top so now what you're going to do is take the popsicle stick you're going to leave it, you're going to flip it, mark it, and then cut it, and you'll keep doing it so you get the correct measurements all the way around.
I found this part so much fun to do. It took me a little while to do it just because you're cut. making popsicle sticks and gluing them into place, but the total time it took me to get all the way through this whole board was about 20 minutes and like I said, I had a lot of fun doing it. I put on some music and enjoyed working on this project. It's so much fun to have something like this in your house because it's a memory forever. and I'm going to show you girls how to build this really sturdy so that it lasts forever, then after you're done making the popsicle sticks on one side, you're going to take some fabric or whatever fabric you have on hand and you're going to glue it Hot glue the back.
Now I'm just hot gluing straight on and then I flip it over and I'm going to use my scissors to cut and get that nice clean line without worrying about cutting it wrong. either cut too small or have to create a pattern it's not necessary I just use my scissors and cut like this now we're going to work on figuring out the walls so we're going to takemore popsicle sticks and we're going to create that cut line again and then just hot glue it in place. and you're going to do that on both sides on the inside side of the house and on the outside side of the house this is going to create a real store bought finish and anyone who sees this will assume you bought it from a store once it's done covered both sides like this we'll have a nice finished piece you'll take your thinner popsicle stick cut the rounded parts off again and then hot glue it now because they're not long enough you'll need to have an extra piece on there and you're just going to measure it and cut off the excess you don't need to give. it has a nice finished look and you're only going to do this on one side you're not going to do this on both sides because the other one is going to go to the main back wall now that you have everything glued down he's going to go ahead and add his side wall to the back wall , make sure you use a lot of hot glue hold it in place and give it time to dry and then use some backing glue on the inside parts of the wall to make sure it's there nice and sturdy then you'll take another popsicle stick thick and it will stick it to the back wall just like I'm doing here connecting to the side wall this will be a great support piece for your walls so there are no issues with it chipping over time and just pushing it down into your place and allow it to dry and again you'll notice it's too short to go all the way through so you'll have to repeat that step of creating a smaller piece there now for the roof we'll just do the inside of the roof and not the outside inside and you can see here I put my popsicle sticks on and then once you've finished them remember you're not going to do the top of those you're going to go ahead and hot glue the roof to the little house make sure you use a lot of hot glue so that really stays in place and doesn't have a problem over time and then once you have it all hot glued it's going to take a little more hot glue on the inside put a long line of hot glue use a stick of extra ice cream and smear it into place, make sure you do because it doesn't make it look clumpy and store bought again and it will do it on the sides too, basically anywhere there's a seam.
To do that, now take some brown paint and go over the top of the little ceiling. You're going to paint a nice thick coat of brown paint. It doesn't have to be super perfect and you only need one layer. this and this is basically to help hide any white that might show up when we put the spanish moss on top so now you're going to use the hot glue and you're going to keep pressing down on this moss greenery material. i forgot what this is called but again this comes from dollar laurel and you will keep adding it to your desired look now i wanted to have a lot on my roof.
I thought it would look really nice to have a bunch in there, so I'm just adding more and more hot glue and more of this stuff and hopefully when you're pulling it out. out of the bag it actually comes in woven strips you almost have to remove the excess you don't want or you can even cut it off and then you just keep massaging it into place to make sure it doesn't show up over time once you've got all the way across the ceiling , you're going to go ahead and cut his hair this appears to be the haircut video because we also cut hair to our topiaries but you're going to go ahead and cut the hair to the roof line as well if there's anything pending or if I didn't want it to look the way it did.
I think cutting it rather than pulling it is the best method so we're going to work on darkening the wooden sticks so I just took some brown paint and some water and watered them down and I'm going to go over it several times to make sure it has a really nice wood look we want it to look rustic not too dark because I feel like that will take away from the beauty of the little figurines that are going to go inside it so I double checked it with my paint brown and I water washed it to give it the look I was going for once it's all painted and dry then you're going to work on the base and we didn't cut this out earlier because I wanted to be able to make sure I had a correct base size that would actually make it stand up and it would look great on a table so once I cut my piece down to the length and width I wanted then I took some hot glue and some more of my drop cloth and just glued it down and then flipped it over and then i threw that fabric over nice and tight and hot glue it in place once i did that i took my scissors and i cut around the sides and then to finish off that seam line i put some hot glue on the core of the phone and then I just pulled it up and put it all in place.
I wanted the edges to look a bit rough so it worked perfect when I did it that way. Now what we want to do is take our scissors and create two strip holes because we want to. the actual foam core will be touching each other when we put the walls up this will make it stay really strong without it breaking down and having problems then use another one of those long strips of hot glue backing and just take your hot glue with the stick of trowel and rub it down and then to finish the back do the same thing add some hot glue then press everything down in place allowing everything to dry folks this project cost me five bucks.
I think everyone should try it. to make one are so much fun, I know it takes a lot of work, but I love how it turned out. Taking a strip of red felt fabric, you are going to create a scalloped edge on one side and the other side will now be flat. i have been making these flower s for years and friends i never make my scallops perfect so don't be afraid as you cut this they don't have to be perfect the thickness of this flower is only a little less than an inch so once you you've got it all cut out you'll take a blob of hot glue and start rolling it you'll notice as I roll it what makes the flower look even prettier is that you pinched the fabric as you roll it you don't want the scallops they line up perfectly on top of each other as you work your way in because then it just looks like a bunch of scallops, you want them to be off-center from each other and then at the end you're just going to bring that tail in and rough out the flower.
I always like to squash it and play with the petals to fluff it up here comes the gland part of this little rose this little flower I am I'm going to take some hot glue and just drop a pearl I got from the dollar tree now you can skip that part if this is not your thing but I thought it was so pretty it looks like the frost had settled on this rose so I'm going to have some Mod Podge and then I'm going to have some sugar glitter and I'm going to sprinkle it all over and when it dries it looks like glass, it's the prettiest thing ever and now I'm going to move on to my little holly leaves.
I'm going to take a piece of green fabric and fold it in half so I don't have to do this twice and then I'm creating little scallops by turning my scissors to the outside so there are three holes on each side as you can see here and then once I've cut them up I'm going to put a little bit of Mod Podge on them too and a little more of that glittery sugar all over them because I think it looks really pretty now the next part it's been around forever it's nothing new but I love pinwheels and what I'm going to do is take a piece of text paper out of a dictionary and I'm creating a zigzag fold from one side to the other and I tell it all the way to the end and then I'm just going to glue the sides, ends, push it down and it's a pleated pinwheel, which will be the cutest thing in this trim.
I'm going to take that modge podge one more time put it on the edges dip it in that glitter then add it to a dollar tree snowflake these come in a pack of three at dollar tree so these toppers are super cheap to make them so beautiful when he bulks them up and puts them up in the trees and then once I get my pleated pinwheel down I smoothed it out a bit because I also love that rough look it has that more farmhouse feel put some more hot glue on it and add it to my flower and my leaves to make the leaves stand up a little better I like to put a little blob of hot glue on the stem part pinch it and for whatever reason it makes it stand up a little better and then the finishing touch , I am going to tie a king a bow and place it at the bottom of the ornament I think this makes it look so elegant as a country house.
I love this ornament so much. I'm going to take these three Christmas ornaments that you can get at the Dollar Tree. I'm going to cut the little string that's on top of them. because we're not going to need that once you've cut them all, so you're going to take your sticks that you're also going to get from the Dollar Tree and you're going to insert them into the bottom of the first one, some of the noses can come off of these, so make sure you secure some hot glue on them just to make sure they don't come off in the future and then you're going to take your scissors and you're going to cut some off that toothpick so you don't have to go as far down on the next snowman once you have them in place you'll take some hot glue and make sure the bar doesn't slide off any more oils just stay nice and snug in place until the last nomen it's actually going to cut the bottom of his butt that way so that it sits flat on our little surface that we're going to create in a few minutes once you've cut it and you know it's nice and flat you're going to take another stick and this is going to go in on top from the head piece of that snowman and then to the butt of the other two snowmen and then he's going to hot glue them in place. turning out so cute already very whimsical and cute for Christmas so you're going to take a piece of foam board and I'm a four by four inch square I take your exacto knife and cut a little hole in the bottom of that bracket and the the The reason why you're going to do this is going to help the dowel say and look good when you glue it all in place and once you have all your little snowman on your stand you're going to take some Mod Podge and You're going to take these little snow globes everywhere they go, but it's j It's so cute and it was so much fun making it.
Now I'm going to create a little box around it instead of having a sandbox which will be a snow box. Cut off the ends of the popsicle sticks that you don't need. add some hot glue and then place them around all four sides of your little square base, this will help all those snowballs stay in and you won't have any problems with them coming off in the future. before but I really like to create DIYs that have a great quality because you know it just makes it look more store bought so after I've gone through all four sides I like to take some extra hot glue and I'm going to put them on crack all those corners inside the box that way so they're really secure now this is the fun part you'll just take a little more hot glue and keep filling everything inside that box. building those snow globes the hot glue will keep them in place for the long haul and then you just keep putting it back on the plate repeating it over and over again to give it that nice finished look.
I'm going to take this shiny ribbon from the Dollar Tree too. All of these supplies come from the Dollar Tree and I'm going to put it up. Right around the bottom of the box, these little jars are in the kitchen section. I love that they have a small handle. It's like a mini version of a mason jar. the snow again that came from the dollar tree, you're going to take one of the trees, add some hot glue to it, push it towards the back of the jar and make sure you don't make it to the bottom, you're going to leave the jar flat side you are going to place your tree where you would like it to be and then you are going to take some glue put the glue first and then put the deer and keep in mind the glue dries quite quickly because you are placing it on glass it tends to dry more quick but this will save you from burning your fingers trying to put the deer legs in and tuck it in once you have the deer in place hot glue the back of its leg and then I'm going to take these little foam balls , watch out, they go everywhere, but they're really pretty when you use them in decorations and then some of this crushed snowflake and you're going to put it inside your jar and then add some. of hot glue to the lid and twist it and do it quickly because it can dry fast which will help it stay in place, then I took a string, went around the handle, tied a simple knot at the top and then held it up. to make sure it will hang in the right place.
I didn't want the string to be in the wrong place before I hot glued it. I want it to look centered when I hang it on my tree and then as you can see. I'm just hot gluing everything in place and then to finish the look I'm going to add another cute gingham bow. The nutcracker ornament is super profitable. I'm going to take five popsicle sticks with some black paint and paint half of the popsicle sticks with black paint. This will be the top of the hat. painting them to make sure thedistance you're painting down isn't too far from where your face is going to be and then make sure you paint around the sides as well so it's nicely covered then for the brim of your hat I'm going to take another popsicle stick and just cut the rounded parts and make sure it's the right length for her hat and because my tree is going to be a green tree I'm using the color green but you can paint this any color you want so while the paint dries I'm going to go and move on to make his face, now i'm going to use a sharpie marker to start initially, but you'll see in a moment. i am going to come back with paint and i regret doing it this way because friends i should have waited for the green popsicle stick to dry so i can glue the sticks on and instead you can see it is moving so be patient and make sure the paint dries before drawing on the mustache and eyebrows. how it's shifting I think I was struggling a bit with this and as I went along I kept thinking I should have been patient and waited for the green to stick and dry then once the club was dry I was able to add it and hold it all in place and proceed to the next part, which will be the back.
I flipped it over and took two more sticks just to help stabilize it so it's a nice, strong quality ornament rather than looking like you. I did a craft project in a house. I like my embellishments and DIYs to look really well done so when I flipped it over and the hot glue held in place with these sticks I went ahead and took some of that black paint and double checked it like I said and i just filled in some of those spots that i missed due to the sticks moving around and i should have been patient then at the bottom of their eyebrows you are going to make two lines and this is going to be where you draw their eyeballs with the paint i took the back of my brush because I liked the thickness of that and I felt like it was more control than my brush bristles and I only did two whites of her eyes so I'm going straight to the line it's almost even a half circle not a full circle and then for his mouth i took some red paint and drew a line down at the bottom and you'll see i'm going to flip my brush over again.
In fact, I use the back of my brush all the time when I'm painting for small areas that are a little tricky that brushes won't let me in, so as it dries, I went over to his nose, took the end of a stick of palette and I put it right where the mustache is between his eyes and he set it in place and then when the paint was still drying it wasn't done yet I moved on to the feather on top of his hat so again I'm using green for our house and these feathers also came from the dollar tree a huge pack of them had all kinds of colors inside of them so it was really fun choosing the one that would work best for my house decor I took a bottom blob of hot glue this time it's a bigger portion so that the pearl when you push it in the glue is going to push around this pearl because I want to give it a little bit of glam not too crazy.
I'm going to take some really chunky chunky glitter that I found at Target that I loved and I'm going to just drizzle that on that spot of that hot glue so it makes her hat look a little fancy now going back to her face I did the blue on one part of her eyeballs and then i took little white dots and added them to the eyeballs and then on her teeth i made little white teeth this is my favorite part for sure on this ornament i took so my fluffy fabric now i bought this on Joanne's but you could go to the Dollar Tree where they have their towels and pick up one of their towels this will work really well on this part for you and on the back I glued them first then put a bead of glue then wrap it around the front of her face.
These nutcrackers are so cute and you can make them all different colors to match your tree and decor and then on top so you can hang them. I'm just going to take some yarn that I also got from the Dollar Tree and you're going to hot glue it in place this next DIY that I'm dying to show you all so here's the scoop on these trees from the Dollar Tree they look so tiny, but I'm going to show you how to make them look fuller without using the long garlands. I'm actually going to take two of the trees and join them together so first what you're going to do is I'm going to take some wood and you don't have to do that but I really like the wood base that you're going to get this piece of plastic and then you're going to take all the bristles and you're going to flatten them out to the side like that so if you lay it down on the table you obviously could tell there were no branches going that way here's a thanks to my friend Jessica for measuring and mixing.
She did a video a couple weeks ago where she took the bristles and lowered them to make them look more like a pine tree instead of a Christmas tree and it completely blew my mind, so after watching her do that, I had this idea: yeah I take two of them flatten them out and then zip tie them together so now that I have it all flat and you can see it's flat. Now I'm going to take the other tree, put them together and tie them up now you don't have to use a garland to wrap it up and it just makes it look so full and beautiful now we can leave it like that or we can take it a step further and I'm actually going to put this little tree together I've done a lot of th That one I'm going to put them all over my house now for that wooden base you're just going to drill some holes and then fill it with hot glue but again you don't have to do this you can actually reattach the stand on one of the stems of that tree and it works just as well so once I have everything hot glued in place I'm going to move on to flocking so here's the scoop on flocking.
I tried it with paint and then I also tried it just flocking alone. I found that it looked very pretty if you lightly added paint to the branches of the tree and then flocked it. Actually, I don't have that. I didn't think to film it for some reason but it looks so cute when you paint the branches first and then group it now grouping is really easy. I'm going to link below where I bought my flock but you basically wet your tree and then spray it and I'd recommend using a spoon because my hands got really dirty real quick once you were done bunching your tre If you're just going to grab your bottle of spray and spray it a couple more times to set the glue that's inside the flocking and seal it to the tree for our next ornament, we're going to take this flat circle ornament. and you are going to put some paint inside I think this is the best idea because you can use any color you want and customize your ornaments to the style of your Christmas trees once you have all the paint inside then you are going to take a tissue paper or a washcloth or whatever and you're going to get the excess paint off the top that way so it helps it dry faster then go ahead and put the top back on and take this burlap ribbon that they sell at the Dollar Tree is in their floral section where they have a lot of their other ribbons and you're going to cut a smaller strip to make it fit better on the ottoman that you're going to take some hot glue and just glue it all in place so it stays put and once you've gone ne all the way around the whole embellishment then you're going to move on to this really pretty thing i fell in love with it the second i saw it this bead garland they have it comes in white and it comes in red and I decided to go with red since e'm going with a Christmas farmhouse look and then you'll just add some hot glue and double wrap it, you could just go around it once, but I love the double wrap look, I felt like it.
It just looks fuller and more substantial that instead of doing a single turn when you get to the end of doing two turns, you're going to take the piece that you left dangling a little bit and where you stop and you're just going to twist the trim in about two circles and then bring those wires down now you could leave it like this where it just has a set of little stem legs going down or you can thicken it up a bit more which is what I'll do so I'll take this smaller piece that sits over to the left and I'm going to fold that in half and twist the ends up just like I did on this other part that I wrapped around the topper and glued in place.
I feel like doing it, that makes it look a lot. Filler and Store Bought Once you've hot glued it in place, grab some tape. I picked up this tape at Walmart. He had a really nice reel and I loved it so you'll be seeing it a lot. in my videos this season now for this embellishment you're going to take another one of those paper pinwheels a little bit of glitter and some Mod Podge and I'm going to use the thicker chunky glitter this time I really want to glam this up . to take my pleated pinwheel and just dab it on the modge podge this is my favorite way to do it so I don't have to get the brushes dirty or my fingers really dirty and then I'm going to take that glitter and just tap it inside and get a nice coverage of glitter on this paper pinwheel and then once that's done, I'm going to take my Dollar Tree snowflake.
This snowflake comes with five snowflakes in the package so this is even more cost effective and super cheap to make this embellishment and then once I have a good amount of hot glue I'm going to leave that little circle, ok? doesn't it look so pretty? Guys I love this one so much now you're going to take my printable again and this time you're going to take this circle and you're going to cut it around the edges it doesn't have to be perfect don't worry about handing it free if you have a punch that will work too , but you're going to take some more of that modge podge and this time instead of you chorus glitter, I actually decided to use the sugar glitter. tapped my little picture of these little carols right inside and then tapped and hot glued it in p lace and then this is the special part of the trim.
I've never seen anyone do this on an ornament before and I thought it would be so much fun, so I took a strip of this cardstock that says come and check it out, we're super religious. in our house so our Christmas theme is really centered around the birth of the Savior so I'm going to take this strip of paper and I'm going to twist the ends like it's scrolling up on that quote and then I'm going to do it in the other one so I'm going to go in the opposite direction by just scrolling it up and then once it's scrolled up I'm going to roughen the paper a little bit to make sure it's a little wavy and sticky. right on the topper so it looks like a small rolled up piece of paper.
The next project we're going to work on is more supplies from the Dollar Tree, except for these little trees. I pick them up on Amazon and link to them. next she's going to take the lid off the jar and then we're going to use this jolly Christmas ornaments there's four to a pack but we only need one for today you're going to cut that little string they have in there and then we're going to start hot gluing our trees first, so i had it hard. time reaching all the way to the back and if you do too you can take a pair of scissors and then push them down into place.
I decided to put two trees towards the back and then the Merry Christmas sign in the middle and then a tree in the Front now if you missed it this is also on the playlist which I am going to link to below. I made a much smaller version of this and they are a little different as a Christmas ornament and they are the cutest ornaments to make. to give people as gifts besides this one this is such a cute smoothie jar and it keeps the kids super entertained because you can put all kinds of goodies inside it once I have the Merry Christmas in place and the others two trees in the back i went ahead and hot glued them my tree in the front and so this is the really fun and super easy thing to do you are going to take some snow off the dollar tree this is just little pieces of plastic crushed and then you're going to take the foam balls pour as much as you want desire and then you're going to hot glue the lid on so I put the lid on first and then I hot glue the neck of the jar and then I screwed it into place and this will keep it from coming off I'm going to take a clear plastic bauble ball that's been removed from the top so I can hold it with my finger inside, it makes it easier to work with and then you're going to choose the color yarn that you I'd like to and you're just going to keep putting drops of hot glue on it and then you're going to keep wrapping your thread and this won't take a lot of time.
I really enjoyed doing this a lot. I thought this was so much fun to do and the more you keep wrapping it your goal is to avoid anywhere you can see the ornament you want to be covered d and completely with the ball so you'll see that I, you know, I'll take my momentum, I'll get in a circle and then I'll stop and change direction and put a piece of hot glue back on and then keep wrapping it again until I'm sure I've covered all those stitches when you get there then you'll cut the thread and then you'll just touch that piece and make sure that it stays in place.
The next part is super fun and whimsical you are going to take toothpicks from the Dollar Tree. I'm going to take two for the embellishment and then have this beaded red berry floralat the dollar tree. I took out two of these little balls that they have on. some hot glue and then i took that end of the popsicle stick and stuck it in the berry now you'll notice when you pull them out the red comes out so i'm going to get some red paint sure everything is painted right i decided to paint too the top of the embellishment just because I thought ugh it would be really cute to go with the knitting needles so once it was dry I took my knitting needles and dipped them into the yarn and hot glued them in place and added the top on these are all of our supplies that we're going to use today from the dollar tree we're making a topiary christmas decoration so you're going to take the golden ball and you're going to cut that little stem that the ornament can hang from and create a hole big enough for a dowel stick that you are also collecting from the dollar tree and hot glue it in place then move on to the clear trim removing the wire that is on the top cap, hot glue it or heat in place and then use your scissors. to push down into one of the holes creating a hole big enough for another one of those little sticks and then you're going to hot glue it in place once it's all dried and it's nice and sturdy you're going to move to the side Opposite of the gold ball using your scissors poke a hole and then clamp to make it a little larger for the size you need for your stick and then snap them together and glue in place as they continue to dry for a few more minutes.
I'm going to move on to making the actual container that they're going down in is just some foam that you pick up from the dollar section and a glass container and then you use the garland that they have at the Dollar Tree that you're going to roll up and glue with hot glue on this garland that's only a dollar for 15 feet and i used two of them one for each ball and the reason i did that is because you really want it to be nice and thick and lush and look store bought, so take your time. this one and just keep rolling it around putting a blob of hot glue on it and then pull it back on and keep pulling things back so that way you don't have any issues with it looking flat or funny and not looking store bought once you do. you got it all rolled up so you're going to take your scissors and give it a haircut watch out this is super messy you can see it on my face which i think is super messy just because these things go everywhere but the look and the The results will be so beautiful that it will be worth it once you finish cutting it. then I'm going to take some fabric of your choice.
I'm using a drop cloth and then you're just going to glue the four sides first and then at the corners you're going to fold it into place and pull the whole thing up nice and tight at the neck and then I took a little bit of this burlap ribbon that they also have on the Dollar Tree in its floral section and you're just going to tie a little knot and make sure you move it around so it looks it's desirable to you and then hot glue on some greenery and a flower city knit now for this next embellishment Miriam kept calling to this mistletoe and we're going to go with that so these are your supplies that you're going to need all Dollar Tree wine except for this nifty little box h stem that I cut from a vine that I have in my house all year you're going to take two pieces of twine and you're going to thread them through one on each of those bells and tie them off at the center point and you're going to do this for both bells because we're going to have them hang together but the trick is you want one hang a little longer than the other, so I recommend cutting a piece. of twine that's maybe 11 inches long and then one that's nine inches long so you can see that they're off center and then you'll hold them in your hand and make sure you have your location hold that twine don't let go, wrap it around your finger one time and pull all those fibers from the end of the twine through the hole and tie your knot and then once you've done that you'll just take your scissors and cut away the excess because you don't need any of that stuff extras, it'll just make it look messy if you just leave it there once you have that in place and you cut, then you'll take the rattles and pull them apart to have that center point where the knot is and then I love these things.
I have been using them all through the holiday decorating season. These are just garland ties and you can pick them up at the Dollar Tree and there's a ton inside a package. Be careful though when you cut them they make a mess so go ahead and cut them. a little bit of that and then you're going to hot glue it right at the center point and you're going to fold it over and then hopefully this will show up nice on camera but I'm just going to twist it because we want it to be rolled up there all together so it's nice and comfortable and this is why Marian keeps saying they look like mistletoe she's going to cut her hair a little bit on top because again these things can get a little crazy and bushy sometimes and now we're going to take a little piece of twine because we need our hanging point again for our tree or if you want to hang this over your door how cute it could be you're just going to make your little bow and then here's that bead garland again you Girls love this bead garland so much I can't even express how much I love it so I'm going to put some hot glue on it and then I'm going to flip it to the front and then I'll do a little twist and it just helps everything stay put. u place very well and there's nothing wrong with it falling off over time before I twisted it I took my little boxwood stalk right here and removed the top two first and then I'm going to sneak that beaded garland right under and I'm going to do a little twist and a little twist and this is going to hold everything so nicely in place and it's never going to fall apart on you and it's going to last for many years and then at the end of that beaded garland I'm going to take that and just twist it t to create a little bit about the look of the cube I just like the way it looks I don't know it's just me personally and then once you've twisted them you'll finish the look with a little bit of white curtsy and it looks so lovely ready to kiss the people under it you're going to take some clothespins from the dollar tree lift up your springs and reattach the two flat sides once you've done that eight times you're going to be ready to put together a snowflake now this pack of clothespins can make big snowflakes and it's just the prettiest thing there is so the farmhouse is so pretty then you'll take them at their little flat corners and glue them together like this I like to hold them for about five seconds before they release to make sure the hot glue has dried in place once you have done four of them and they all fit together you will do it one more time exactly the same step then once you have another set of four glued then you are going to put a good amount of hot glue in the center part of the circle and then offset them and glue them together then to finish the look so you can hang it up you are going to take some twine and glue it in place now you can leave these woods raw or you can paint them, aren't they so pretty this next DIY?
I found the inspiration on Pinterest and wanted to try it out so you can recreate it yourself because I thought it was so cute I took two 2x4 blocks, one was a little taller than the other, one was 12 inches tall and the other was 9 inches wide tall and then I'm going to paint with green and actually pink and you could make it red but I loved the inspiration photo where I had pink and I thought it looked really cute because you can add the red and it makes it look like I don't know, really pretty, so once you've got the green and the pink painted, you're then going to go to the top on the other side and paint 1/4 black and that goes to the Hat on the Nutcracker and repeat the process on the pink , then you'll need to mix orange and white to get a nice peach color for the Nutcracker's face and then you're just going to flip the sides and the front you won't need to go around the back because that's going to be covered in hair technically you don't even need to go to sides but then again i like to make things look store bought so i thought ok let me do it anyway plus i really like to paint once they are all dry you are going to take that bright red tape again from the Dollar Tree and now you're going to circle the top of the Nutcracker Hat. the trick is you want to make sure you show a little bit of that black paint because it will make it look like the brim of his hat, so I'm going to take some really thin white ribbon that I also bought at the Dollar Tree and cut them small so they they fit.
I don't have the exact measurement on this one but you're going to create four of those hot glue in place and then you're going to move on to the hair on the Nutcracker now you're going to take some of this car cleaning cloth that you can get in the aisle section dollar tree cards cut a strip and then you go to work hot gluing around the nutcracker. just keep going around when I get to the end, I'll make sure to go around and then fold the whole thing over like this and hot glue it in place.
This fabric is super fuzzy and fluffy so it's really great for nutcracker hair and his little goatee then I added some buttons I had on hand you can use whatever you want on this some little sparkly pieces some buttons what you want from Brad, add it now. you're going to move to the face first you're going to draw a line for the forehead area and then you're going down the nose e which is a rectangular shape at that stage you're ready to move on to his mustache it goes right under his nose and just lets you you'll make sure the tips of that mustache are curved because it's so stinky it's cute.
I love the little mustaches on my nutcrackers. Then for his mouth, it's just a round-edged rectangle just below his moustache. Then for his eyes. I use the back of my brush all the time to make circles. I like it a lot better. It is very easy to do so. so I'm just going to add a little bit of white just below the brow line so it can help me line up where I want the eyeballs to be, then I move on to doing the teeth on the back of my brush as well. I just got a little bit there and then slowly did the lines of the teeth now to help the eye hold a little bit longer he's going to take his thin brush and just go right under the whites of the eyes and with the back of the brush again make two dots for the eyes now I wanted a I added a bit more fluff on the face of the nutcrackers so I took another piece of the fabric and rolled it up as you can see here and glued it in place then using red I'm going to do her cheeks rosy and then to add a little more texture and pattern to it because as of now it's pretty simple.
I took some of the ski and tape I picked up from Walmart and then wrapped it around the top of the hat. I do not forget it. the eyebrows actually I almost forgot about the eyebrows and filming them and then I thought it looks kind of funny something was missing and then I realized oh wait the eyebrows when you're done with the eyebrows then you're going to do one last thing. you are going to create a line between the teeth to make it look like a nutcracker. I'm going to take this canvas art that you see all the time in your thrift stores.
I ended up getting this 25 percent off, so it was even cheaper than $6 and the crazy thing is, this time there was a time when it was $100, especially when you know when it's done for me to have MDF. I thought it was so crazy that they charged a hundred bucks for it anyway. Now we're going to go and move on to our dollar tree. supplies. I'm going to use two different types of stickers, some key tags, and these little buckets that we often don't know what to do with, other than party favors. You're going to take your white paint and go over one side of the canvas you don't need to cover all of this it's just going to be this size here once you have it all painted white set it aside and let it dry then take those twenty five buckets of them and you're going to take out the handle that's on it with a pair of pliers then you take the key tags and you're going to take 25 of those as well and you remove all the metal circles that are on the key tags you take those letters number decals and you are going to number them from 1 to 25 now these decals don't have the best adhesive on the back of them and so the best way to keep them for the long term is to take some Mod Podge and just you will go over each one making sure they are sealed well and will not peel off in the future once the white paint is dry you will take your letters and center them on your art canvas, do not glue them all the way down, just tap on the top piece is to make sure d e that they're spaced out nicely so if you need to move some things around you can do that and then once you get them the way you like you'll push them all down now comes the next part which is the stinkiest part, you are going outside don't do it inside with your spray paint and you are going to go over it with several coats of red spray paint this will take a little bit of time to dry so once you do take it inside and remove the paper on the back that way, it will expose all the wood and you will be able to seewhat are you working with when you start to take your stickers to reveal the white underneath that you painted in the beginning stages of this project you may have a little paint here and there lifting a bit if that's the case grab a brush that won't its precious to you spray some spray paint in a plastic bag then with that brush you can touch up those spots no problem now i love the way it looks you dont have to do it but i thought it was so beautiful.
I took some white paint and it didn't have to be perfect. I just ran the edges with little white streaks so it would have that whimsical candy cane look once all your paint is done. it's dry then you'll take your little cubes and use some washi tape to create a drilling guide so that way you don't drill wrong or crooked take your washi tape and cross three strips and then place on your little cubes uncover your space take a pencil and mark w here you're going to be drilling and then with a drill bit you're going to go through your canvas now you don't want to go through your table so you're going to have to put down some kind of cutting mat or you can go out into your garage if you have a table work but I don't have that so I'm using my craft table and I'm just laying down a mat so it will catch the drill if it accidentally hits the table then grab a ruler and it's going to line up that top drill and go all the way to the end of your line because the number is odd you're not going to have exactly the same number even though in three rows in the middle row there will be two fewer buckets than the top and bottom just repeat the same process and drill through all those marks so you know where to put your buckets and it won't splinter the wood go ahead remove the washi tape and it's left with all the drilled holes now the bucket has two different sides where the handles are i don't want the one with the seam line you'll want to take your labels and with some green yarn that I picked up from the dollar tree as well, you'll hot glue it in place and then tie a cute little bow so that everything stays in place and then to make sure the bow doesn't get tied up, just take a little of hot glue and apply it to the top and bottom and that way it will stay forever. he's going to get his drill and screws and just screw all twenty five cubes into place it's so much fun to put them in and as he put more and more cubes in i loved how it looked once he had all his cubes drilled and in your place then you are going to fill the buckets with all kinds of cute goodies now i am using tissue paper that i picked up from target because i like the way they look and you are going to fill each bucket with that tissue paper now the year past i had a free printable there are actually two of them one tha has bible scripture verses and one that has service projects so if you are interested in those i will link them below but they are free you can download and make them with your family during the holiday season.
I love making advent calendars as much as I do. You're going to take that tissue paper and you're going to cut out a nice size square. I'd say it's an 8 by 8 that will fit in these cubes. You're going to fill that. tissue paper with the printouts I gave you for free and some sweet little treats inside each bucket, you're going to take five popsicle sticks, space them evenly apart and then you're going to take a sixth and do it at an angle to create a line of ceiling, these will slide around a bit because you're not hot-gluing them in place and then you're just going to create pencil lines so you know where to cut off the excess you don't need. we're going to have two shorter two taller and then the ick paddle stitch that's in the center point you're not cutting it at all once you've cut all that stuff you're ready to move on to assembly and I just use my scissors because I found it's easier to cut them this way now hot glue popsicle sticks when you put them on wood they dry very fast so I recommend doing only one dot at a time it will make your project look so much better without have glue dry and things will lie flat and even then, I'm doing them one at a time.
First I did the outer walls, then I did this center point, and then I'm doing the middle sticks. I don't know what to call them but basically the middle Mills and then just make it really strong and tough. I'm going to reinforce the back with some more hot glue and then another popsicle stick. going to work on the roof line take a popsicle stick and place it on top create the little line you need and then you will place them on top of each other and trace it and I like to do it this way because we will join these mitered edges and we want to make sure we have a perfect seamless mitered edge so you can see that when you lay them next to each other they will be the same size and then when you flip it and mirror the image it creates a line of roof so I'm going to just add that hot glue real quick and lay the roof line down so it doesn't dry out and make sure to leave enough room for both roof lines at the top tip to meet at the center stick if you have any excess be sure to clean remove it if it is cool enough to the touch; if not you can use a popsicle stick to clean up any excess glue that spills once you have them in place you will flip it over and then add two more of those mitered corners to the roof lines to the other side so that be really strong and sturdy and again look like store bought now i want t to make it look even stronger and more durable and pretty so i'm going to add some hot glue to the bottom making sure to fill any of those little holes and this is great if you plan on painting it but make sure you just wipe up any excess glue with an extra popsicle stick now i decided to paint mine with some brown paint and thinned it down to create a more of a stained look rather than a paint look solid pigmented let's go ahead and move on to the star I'm terrible at drawing stars so I like to make the star solid and then cutting it out is so much easier than int try to create your five points yourself.
I really struggle with that, so I'm going to add whatever color paint. have some light colored handy and I'm going to sprinkle some glitter on it because why don't we want our star to shine for baby Jesus? Once you've done that you're going to set it aside to dry and then you're going to take some twine and some hot glue and you're going to create your little loop to be able to hang your ornament on your tree, it's really simple, You're just going to put some hot glue on the top spout and it's just going to squeeze in between those popsicle sticks and then you can add your start on top.
I'm so excited about this next embellishment. I know it might not be everyone's favorite but I love these because I love the farmhouse style so again I'm going to create a large star stencil out of some computer paper and I'm going to keep drawing until I i like the way the dots look but like i said i basically did that solid line star look and then i'm going to keep fattening them up to make them look the right way because even hand drawing these lines stars i suck at that too as well that I'm fattening it up again and then I'm going to cut it out and this will become the template for my next embellishment and I love these because they're really big in size as you can see they're about eight and a half inches wide because because I'm using all the sheet of paper once you've cut all of that out then you'll lay it on top of three layers of fabric and I'm using a white burlap just wait I think this is so pretty you can embellish anything you want but y o I had a very simple look on mine because I feel like my tree is already going to be so heavy with the toppers and I love how big this is going to be on my tree so go ahead. and pin it to your three pieces of fabric and once you cut it all out you are ready to put it together and this will be the reason we needed three pieces, the first two stars will be glued on top of each one. another one and then the third one, I'll show you in a minute what it's for now because you're working on fabric you have a little bit more time to work with hot glue so go ahead and go all the way around. of your edges and then you're going to take that second extra star and place it right on top of it once you've got that ll glued in place you're ready to move on to the next part go ahead and add some more hot glue but this time where there's my hand I'm not going to glue that part because we're going to be stuffing these stars and it's going to be these cute little squish two stars that are burlap to put on your tree I think they're so cute now you want to be able to hang it so go ahead and add a little loop of twine on the top and then drop that star down now you're going to take some batting and you're just going to push that in and then to finish the look you're going to seal the last of that fabric with hot glue again you can embellish them as much as you want but I really loved the simple look the simplicity because I think they're pretty on their own for our next project you're going to pick one of these gift boxes I think they're meant for v no the samba house doesn't drink wine but i knew i wanted to use this for something else it was the perfect height so i went ahead and spray painted it once it was all spray painted i gathered these other supplies some buttons a ribbon, this adorable little dollar tree hat, it's actually an ornament and I just cut the ribbon at the top and then you I'm going to go ahead and hot glue it to the top of the box where you can remove the lid once have it in place.
Take one of the photos they have of the Dollar Tree and just dissolve it. and start gluing things that you think look pretty, so I added this green pine stem and also this pine cone. I thought they looked really cute on top. I warn you folks that this tape is very dangerous to work with when it comes to hot glue, so if you're going to be doing this as a family project, just know to use popsicle sticks to help push the tape down into place because it's a bit thin. glittery mesh all over and it will burn your fingers it will go right through that mesh and make you really sick so keep that in mind when working with this tape but it is so shiny and pretty love it especially because the box it's so sharp. and Jenna white, so you'll see me here working with a popsicle stick because it works best to push this ribbon down into place, then you'll take some of this bead garland that they also have at the Dollar Tree, I love it.
I feel like I'm using it in every video and they have it in gold, white and red. I'm sorry someone said silver, but I haven't seen it in silver, so if you've seen it in silver, maybe that's an option. so you're going to go ahead and just place the tails of the bows in the positions you like and then you're going to hot glue a little bit of them, not quite, you just want to help add some height and some depth to your tape and then get some hot glue and put on those darling buttons now i had enough buttons to make three on her tummy and two on her eyes but then when it came time for the smaller buttons i couldn't find them and decided i was going to do it yourself and I'll show you. in a second, now we're going to work on his nose.
I took a piece of this burlap ribbon they have in their flower section at the Dollar Tree and then folded it over and added hot glue. I'm absolutely thickening that once it's nice and sturdy I'm going to cut it into a carrot shape. I really love the texture of this and I think it's so lovely for his nose once you've cut it all out and it's ready to go then you're going to take some orange paint and just tap on top of that burlap now i'm using my finger because i feel like this isn't going to let it get too dirty i don't want it to be crazy orange i just want it to be slightly orange which you know and understand is her nose and then you go to a hot glue instead and i pointed the nose down because i wanted it not to bump when opening the box, so keep that in mind, ok, let's go back to those little buttons.
I found some small buttons in my kit. a scrapbook button kit i got years ago and will paint them black once i have them painted. I can go ahead and add the face, but first, while they're drying, I decided to add a very pretty red bow. with that same tape and then I was able to do her little smile so I went ahead and made little hot glue dots and then added her smile and here it is all finished. I'm not the creator of this next idea but I've seen them everywhere online and I wanted to make my own version of them because I think they're so pretty and I wanted to add them to my tree so again all these supplies come from the Dollar Tree , except for the fabric and the box with stems that came out of a vine and for starters you're going to take some twine you're going I'm going to cut the existing gold hanging ribbon that was on these Dollar Tree ornaments and now you're just going to make one with a little of string to obtain the correct measure.
You are going to place the ornament on the fabric. You are going to throw your cloth to one sideso you know how wide it should be cut and then you can look into the eyes folding it knowing you're going to need this sigh now this ornament that i picked up from the dollar tree is a five an inch ball but the fabric that i'm going to cut is going to make bigger than that. I'm going to use a fourteen inch wide square, so to hot glue it you're going to put one dot at a time because again we're working with plastic and hot glue and it dries really fast.
I'm just gluing these four corners on the flat sides first and then where the points are the peaks. I'm going to pull them out and just keep working and pleating and gluing it in place like this and you're going to continue around all four sides, making sure that everything is really tight or taut, as Martha Stewart likes to say. once everything is nice and snug there and glued down then you're going to take more surprise surprise out of the white garland feet and I'm going to hot glue them into place. First I put a little dot in there that I actually forgot to show. that and then I'm going to keep twisting it and pulling it nice and tight down to where the little nub is where you put that thread earlier allowing it to hold in there nice and tight and then just some more hot glue twisting the whole thing into its place and then you are ready to embellish this ornament a little more, so here I am again with my little boxwood leaves.
I think they are so pretty. I love how they look at Christmas then I have two of them there. I'm going to twist that. down in place making sure it locks in real good because these things that try to stick them into the fabric naturally don't want to stay they're too bulky and the materials just don't know they don't want to lock into each other and then I'm going to take some of these little berries that I picked from the dollar tree. I didn't show it, I forgot to show that part, but I also twisted it and then once they were all hot glued and twisted. instead I took the ends of my beaded garland and once again on this ornament like I did the other one, I just twisted it on my finger and then cut it into cubes, stretched it out a bit and then shaped it into the shape I wanted and then to finish the look I added a bow to the trims and voila it's beautiful the next trim is a whimsical farmhouse trim. take these thicker popsicle sticks and cut off the rounded edges because you won't need that once you've done 2/3 popsicle sticks then you'll take another popsicle stick and cut two small pieces and hot glue them in place this it will help make it stronger and not fall apart then you take some brown paint and thin it down to create a stain that you will see every time you thin the paint it allows the wood to flake off and it looks so nice once it's painted all over and you're letting it dry set it aside and you're going to move on to these little letters that they have at Dollar Tree you can get this in their craft section they carry these supplies and this Moss this also comes from their floral section you're going going to take the letters J oh why to spell joy and then you're going to hot glue all over the top wooden surface don't burn your fingers because it's close to the edges once you've got a nice layer flat a out of moss you're going to take your J and just put it right get into the moss and then use your scissors to cut off any excess that's left hanging and that's going to create a really nice look on these letters almost like a topiary and then you're just going to take some twine they also have in their craft section glue some hot glue in place and then glue the letters to the barn and door.
I decided to make a simple knot, first I cut off the excess and then tied a bow and then hot glued it in place. I think this embellishment is so cute and it's really simple to make so once you're done let that side dry hot glue on a small piece of twine for the handle the supplies you'll need are three large red balls from the Dollar Tree and then these three decoration items that you can pick up for a dollar each now when I found out that I could cut these decorations up I knew right away that I wanted to turn this into a parachute so I could have these three little items of Santa the reindeer and the penguin to be parachuting off my roofs for is really simple just take a pair of scissors and you are going to poke a hole in it and then you are going to cut in a circle you want to keep the part that has the actual hanging part on the part top that way you can use that later to hang your decoration so you'll take your sharpie marker and now create scallops but you'll want to find the seam line on the ornament it should be really nte easy to see and then on that initial line of stitching you're going to create scallops going the other way you're going to do four between each line of stitching so you'll see me do one and then two three and then the last one, I'm going back to the line of stitch four and the reason you do that is because you're going to want four on one side and four on the other side so you have an even number and then you're also going to do four on the back of the trim once you've gone all the way through the path with your sharpie marker and you've created After you cut these scallops, you'll then take your scissors and cut at the end points where the scallops meet and just cut them very easily.
This plastic is very, very easy to cut and then it goes. to take your scissors and just slowly and carefully work around that arc and then you'll just repeat that going around the other one until they're all cut and done. I really had a lot of fun making this and I think even kids could do this if you want to DIY with your grandkids or even kids at home. room or just put something a little special in your room once you have cut it out it still looks a little too plain so I decided to take some white paint and then you are going to surround the trim and this is the reason why you needed eight scallops because when you're done you're going g to have four white triangles and I'm just going to say triangles you'll have four white scalloped triangles and then four red scalloped triangles so when you're circling take your time don't rush and figure out I wanted two coats of white paint I could even do three if I really wanted it to be like a crisp solid white there's something about this red spray paint on these balls that peeks through so I recommend doing two or three coats of paint white, then once it's all dry and you like the way it looks, you can leave it like that or you can make it a little fancier.
I'm going to take some glitter and decorate this and make it a little more special, but first let's not forget the bottom side, so you're going to take some of the red paint that you have on hand and then you're going to quickly paint the inside now again I liked two coats of red paint because I felt like it covered it better I'm always a fan of having a good paint ng job to make it look like quality decoration rather than something we spread wide so let it dry on the bottom and then with a little bit of Mod Podge it's going to take a really thick amount and go over just the white part of the parachute once you've got that on then you're going to take some glitter and just sprinkle it all over covering it nicely and then do the other four sides and this is what it looks like when it's all done set it aside to really let it dry and as she goes over and picks up her three little figurines and she's going to twist them until the bottom breaks .
I talked about this before my other DIY videos, but I love this rope because you can use it at this thickness or once you have three cuts, you'll need three of these. Once you've cut them, you can take them and unscrew them. so they're not as thick but it's still a nice piece of thick string and I just think this is the best way I can use this string now what you're going to do is take two of those strings and you're going to take your little figurine and right where their hands are because all their hands are up like they already want to parachute you are going to hot glue both arms your string now make sure you make the string the same length so when you hang it Santa is not leaning crooked on the parachute and then all you have to do is line the string up to her armpits and then pull it all the way up even if she has a present it's not going to change the dimensions of how she hangs and moves on the parachute so when the top of your parachute is dry, go ahead and grab a nice green bow.
I picked up that tape from the Dollar Tree and then on the other hand, it's going to take a little bit of hot glue and from one corner to the other corner. make sure you have the right direction with your bow, not to get your bow to end up crooked or on its side you'll add a thick line of hot glue and then just glue those strings in place and then to make sure they're really secure take a little more hot glue and go over. now i put a lot on them because i really wanted it to be in there strong and not come off over time and to clean up your project add some red paint to hide the hot glue i was nervous about this one but i've been wanting to give it a try i saw this wire and i've I've seen wire-shaped ornaments before and I thought, man, that's got to be like pennies and nickels to make it, so I picked up a wire from the Dollar Tree.
I don't remember the gauge but it's definitely a thicker gauge and wire and you can tell just by looking at it that it's really thick but it holds its shape very well and it's not hard to work with so what you're going to do is take your wire doesn't cut a piece because you don't know how big you're going to need it to be just because I was kinda free h And doing this but I weaved back and forth and my gap was about two inches on my weave so I weaved up and then down and each stitch is about two inches long and you'll need five of those because we're going to cut off the excess let's see how I left a little bit hanging at the end there and on the other side you also want to have a little bit more so you can once you've finished forming your item you can twist the end parts together so we're actually making a star if it's not noticeable because there are five dots and at this point I was a bit nervous because I was thinking holy smoke this is a mess i cant even do stars freehand what am i doing with the wire? but i kept the faith and kept going that last extra piece i folded it and suddenly it became a star friends i wrestle with the stars if i can do this you can do this so all you gonna do is keep working there around it looks like a star and then there you have it now at this point it still looks a bit difficult until the next part again I dreamed this in my head I thought it would be so pretty I took some strips of drop cloth and someone asked if you had to have drop cloth it can actually take an old sheet and do this too but create some strips using drop cloth or an old sheet or whatever fabric you have on hand that you like and then you just wrap it around that metal the edges of the wires and then you know what when you get to those corners you're just going to work the fabric, turn it the way you feel, go with the flow, feel the trim to win with it and then when you get to the end, go It's going to flap the last piece and then hot glue it into place and look, can you believe this was such a mess at first?
I was losing faith and look, it turned into something so cool and then you. We're going to create a hanging twine loop at the top and then add a little b. now folks i don't know about you but i love this whole result and i think it's so lovely and it costs next to nothing to make it's crazy to think that storage went to such lengths for these metal shaped ornaments for the next ornament you're going to grab a towel from the car aisle at the dollar tree you're going to take these little wooden sock ornaments and some red paint now you can use these ornaments for a bunch of different things that i've seen people use them for garland and i think that It's also very pretty, but we're going to use them as decorations for what they were intended to be used for.
I'm going to take some red paint and once again thin it down so the wood grain can come through. I feel like anytime you can tell the wood grain look looks more farmhouse than compared to traditional so I painted one side when I first made this and I regret that so just a little tip paint both sides, you'll love it so much more if you do. paint both sides because you can have the Either way in front of your stockings on your tree once you've painted them all red you'll let them dry really because you want them not to go to the next part by accident take the fabric you picked up . from the car section this is just a car drying towel but I love that it has a little fluff on it so it's perfect for these stockings you're going to measure how thick you need to go around the top of your stocking. cut a long strip now before you glue it take some yarn and fold it in half and hot glue it in place this will allow you to be able to hang it once you know how to glue it Next you're going to take some more hot glue and then just you're going to take that cloth and wrap it all the way around now you can just leave it like that but i realizedwhich when I turned around you can see the wood jump through the top and bottom sides where it goes down to the trunk so I decided to add some hot glue on top just a little bead and then pinched it in place so that really look like a stocking and then you're going to do that again on the lower sides where the boot meets the fabric this just completes the look and makes it look more store bought now you can leave it like that with just the red and white but again i think it would be so cute if i added a little flair to it so i took this stem of the dollar tree cut a leaf pinched it into place and added a berry did you make it the whole video?
I hope you have been inspired and ready to create this holiday season. Find out what was your favorite DIY I made this holiday season and until the next episode, goodbye home girls.
