Are you all ready for a Christmas Blog Hop? Blog Hop you say? You want to know the difference between a linky party and a blog hop? (If you don’t know what it is, don’t feel bad, I just learned the difference a few weeks ago).
A Link Party: when you join a linky party and you share your project, it gets posted only on the blog that you shared/linked it to.
A Blog Hop: when you join a blog hop, and you share your project, it automatically gets posted on all of the blogs that have joined the blog hop.
I’m teaming up with Bonnie from A Wee Meenit to bring you The Christmas Gift and Ornaments Under $10 or Less Blog Hop! Bonnie is a very talented lady and I’m so excited to be part of this party with her!
So, when you link up your gift or ornament (has to be $10 or less) it will show up on Project Queen and A Wee Meenit. Not bad huh?
This party will run from November 10-December 10. A new party will begin every Wednesday and will end the following Monday. Bonnie and I will choose our favorite project for that week. The 2 projects that are chosen will be highlighted on both of or blogs.
Here are the rules:
1. No Etsy shops or business giveaways.
2. Please only link up handmade ORNAMENTS or a handmade GIFT you would give someone for Christmas that would cost $10 or less.
3. Please visit two others who have linked up.
4. Please, please cut and paste the button for this party somewhere IN YOUR POST.
Before we get this party started, I asked Bonnie from A Wee Meenit to show us what she made for under $10.
“Take it away Bonnie!”
So for my Christmas gift of under $10 I decided to make a pillow.
I know there have been tons of tutorials out there in blog-land for these, but I never had enough guts to try it myself!
Here is the equation:
EPOXY + CHRYSTAL + SUCCULENT + DIRT + PLANTING POT = ?
COST = $3.50
Can you guess?
Most plants will need some sort of drainage. The good thing about succulents is they don’t need a whole lot of water and they don’t need a whole lot of drainage – so no worries about holes in the bottom of the pot. Another good thing about succulents? It’s hard to kill them!
1. Attach your candle stick holder to the pot with a high strength 5 minute (or quick dry) Epoxy. I purchased mine at Michael’s.
2. Plant your succulent.
That’s it folks!!! An easy and healthy Christmas gift for under $10.
How cute would this be sitting in a kitchen window?
We can’t wait to see what you share with us!!!
Let’s get this party started…
