Wrapping Paper

Just a quick idea I heard that I love.  It's funny, cause I never had 
thought of it before, but it's such a simple thing.
      Someone suggested to find the cheapest Christmas wrapping paper that you 
could find to wrap your kid's presents in.  The reason why is, because it rips easily 
and it's made of cheap paper, so it's really loud and crinkly when they tear it open.  Which is half the fun of a present.... Opening it! So I bought some 
$1 Christmas wrap at Target in their $ bin. 
 It does all of the above. 
Great idea!
P.S., great idea for Birthday presents too!

Here's another one!


This  project is sooo cheap and can be done in 2 minutes, just like 
 the other projects.  I took an old wooden frame that wasn't being used, 
got an extra branch off of my sister's Christmas tree, added a 
 chipboard letter that I got at the scrapbook store for $.55 and tied it all 
 with a cute piece of ribbon.  You could use any letter.  I liked "S"
 because it could stand for Santa or Snow etc.  EASY! (And cheap!)  


Last Minute Ideas

I thought I would share with you a couple of last minute Christmas decor ideas that are SUPER easy in case you are having company over this Christmas and need that extra idea.

 This is my bathroom.  All I did was put a cute vinyl saying on the mirror, put a Christmas soap out, (LOVE Bath and Body Works), and go to Walmart and buy a 5 pack of flour sack towels for about $4 and roll one up, put a couple of different layers of material around it and tie it up with some cute twine.  EASY!
Also, in my bathroom, I took that same idea I had with the rolled up flour sack towel and hung one up instead.  Tied it with some material and some twine, and there you have it.  EASY!

Let me know what you think!

This is a Christmas stocking holder project I thought would be fun to do.  Even though we have a fireplace, the crafter in me wanted to make one of these.  
I still have to attach the hooks, -they are stuck on by tape,- the screws that came with the hooks were too long and went through the back of the board.  I'll post a pic once I have that done and hung up!
