DIY Christmas Accessories

easy christmas crafts

Looking for easy Christmas crafts or a last minute accessory to go with that awesome holiday T you’re rocking? This morning my oldest daughter had to wear an “ugly sweater” to school (which by the way was NOT ugly. It was totally cute — clearly she didn’t get the memo that you don’t find ugly sweaters at Kohl’s. How about a thrift store darling?).

Anyway, we whipped up this fun jingle bell bracelet in 30 seconds. Super simple!

Our supplies: Ribbon we had on hand and these jingle bells I had picked up at Target. That’s it! We simply tied the bells (they are in cluster of 3′s) onto the ribbon and then tied the ribbon on her wrist.

She topped off her ugly-ish sweater ensemble with this cute bow. She just super glued a traditional bow to an old hair clip. Love that she has her own DIY style.

I love this girl.

Have a great weekend friends — I’m sure it will be full of Christmas cheer!

DIY Party Favors

I love a good party favor. What a better way to end a party than to send your happy guests home with a little something to remind them of your event? Party favors do not have to be extravagant. In fact, I think the best ones are of the homemade and DIY variety. Simple is nice. Don’t you think?

This week I’m sharing simple DIY party favors over on the SCJohnson.com blog. These favors are so easy that even your little ones can  help you make them. Here’s a peek:

FREE Holiday Printables with HP

This week is all about last minute holiday prep (are you in this same boat?). One way to add some quick style to your holiday season is by incorporating holiday printables. What I love about printables is that they are an easy (and often free) way to give some style to your table setting, food display or gift wrapping. Simply print and you’re ready to go — simple! Look at this darling table setting by The Party Dress.

The addition of a simple printable name tag puts the finishing touches on the tablescape. I suggest using printable name cards (like the ones shown here) to direct guests to their seats. Place them on the napkin, directly on the plate or even attach them to the  chair backs. Be creative!

 

Download these FREE holiday printables from The Party Dress here. There are several holiday printable you can incorporate. Like these straw flags (perfect for holiday cocktails!).

And these gift tags that are perfect for holiday favors and gifts.

For more FREE holiday printables, see these cute milk & cookies printables  I shared last week.

 

 

This holiday season, let loved ones know how much you care. Use your favorite photos to create something personalized and unique for everyone on your list. Make it memorable. Make it meaningful. Make it matter. Go to hp.com/holiday for inspiration and ideas.
