Holiday Weekend!

Friday, July 1st, 2011

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend ahead and for those of you celebrating the 4th of July, may you have a fun and safe weekend! I don’t have any major plans but I hope to get some R&R and hopefully a little sun if it ever decides to show up here.

With a few days before the holiday I thought I’d do a round up of some of my favorite crafts I’ve seen lately. Hope you enjoy!

Creature Comforts Fabric Dessert Flags, Two Shades of Pink Mason Jar “Sippy Cups”, Packagery Paper Button Garland

With only a few days left before Christmas, my list of projects that I can realistically complete in time is dwindling down. Luckily, the ever talented and generous Amy, of Eat. Drink. Chic., has created some very charming DIY crafts just in time. These projects are easy enough to make with the limited time left and yet you’ll look like you spent loads of cash and time with these beauties. Be sure to click over to Eat.Drink.Chic. and download each of these projects for yourself.

I wanted to wrap up Five Days of Felt with another one of my D.I.Y projects. These stiched ornaments are easy, fun to make, and if I don’t say so myself, look pretty charming!

All you need to do is cut out ornaments shapes (you can create your own or download my shapes here) from the felt then stitch patterns to your hearts content! I used a sewing machine but I think using embroidery thread and stitching by hand would look just as good. In addition to ornaments, these would be nice gift toppers too! The sky’s the limit as to what you can do, so have fun and happy crafting!

Circus Themed Christmas!

As much as Twig & Thistle is for all of you it’s also a journal of sorts for myself. It’s a place that I can collect all the things I spot and don’t ever want to forget. This project in particular is just that. I saw this over on Design Sponge last week and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since.

Inspired by Adam & Halli’s circus themed wedding (also a MUST see!) Emily and team from Once Wed created this fantastically charming circus inspired christmas decor. Truth be told, I have been putting off decorating my own tree in hopes that they’ll share the instructions for that beautiful yellow tree topper! Everything from the whimsical ornaments to the genius use of straws – it’s all just so over-the-top cute! See all the pictures here and download the ornaments and poster as well!

Stay tuned, I have an exclusive holiday card by Maddy of The Inspired Bride to share later today….
