Blog Hop #3 Highlights “Christmas Gifts and Ornaments for $10 Or Less”

Woohoo! Bonnie from A Wee Meenit and I have some really great projects to share with you this morning from Blog Hop #3 “Christmas Gifts and Ornaments for $10 or Less”.  All of the highlights that have been chosen  have great tutorials and pictures so YOU can make them also.

Stevie from Garden Therapy shared how to make these amazing Beeswax Flower Mason Jar Candles.

I would LOVE to receive a gift like this.
I have always been a bit intimidated about making candles,
but after reading Stevie’s tutorial I think I could do it!

Brandy from Gluesticks shared with us how to make Etched Gift Jars.

I think these are so cute.
I was always looking for something to do for teachers (when my kids were little).
Especially something they could use over and over again.

I’m picking a third feature because Bonnie did (although my reasoning isn’t as good as her’s…ha!).

Shirley from These Moments of Mine made this adorable Embroider Hoop Ornament.  I just love this!

Think of the possibilities with these!
You could paint the hoop, add different embellishments, AND different fabric.
Great job Shirley!

Now, you all have to head over to Bonnie’s Blog – A Wee Meenit and check out her sweater pillows and stockings she has been making.  She has done a fabulous job and you will be INSPIRED.  I guarantee it!

Take it away Bonnie!

I am so excited to share some of the projects that were linked up last week. I have truly gotten a lot of ideas and inspiration along with some great instructions and tutorials on how to achieve them!

My first choice I had to go with the Glittering Musical Ornament from Salt Tree. I love the idea of reusing a music box found in an old unwanted object, and reusing it in something to have on your tree year after year! And who doesn’t love the prospect of using Mod Podge and Glitter?!

LOVE this!!
Next up is the adorable Melted Snowman Tutorial from Flexible Dreams. I have a soft spot for Snowmen, having collected them for so long. I am going to make gift tags with them as well as share them with my Girl Scout Troop, I CAN NOT WAIT! The tutorial looks soooo easy!

This week I am sneaking in another pick because I love this one so much too!! It is the Anthropology Inspired Brushed Lace Cardigan from Two Butterflies! Since I have just ventured into the sewing world recently, I can appreciate this so much more! I love when someone can just look at an object and say ‘I can make that’ cause it usually turns out better as is the case with this one!!

 I have had so much fun hosting this Blog Hop with Mandy over at the Project Queen! If you haven’t checked out her blog, you need to. She is so very talented and one of my first real Blogging friends!!

Bonnie and I would love it if you would grab our button, paste it onto your blog and help us spread the word!
