Growing up my mom would make Easter baskets for me and my brother. She went to great lengths to create those baskets and would always make them more than a basket full of candy. It wasn’t unusual for me to find slippers or crafting supplies in my basket and my brother to find socks or drum sticks. Every year the baskets felt special and unique, and they always brought smiles to our faces.

It’s not secret that I have a thing for paper products, especially beautiful wrapping paper. And over the years, I’ve used decorative paper for so many things other that wrapping gifts, like lining drawers or framing it to create artwork.
The trend of wrapping paper as art has become a popular design trend as of late and because it’s so inexpensive and there are so many great papers on the market, I think wrapping paper as art will stay a hot trend.
Just popping in today with another easy and fun holiday craft.
I love putting candy in my family’s Christmas stockings. We won’t all be together this Christmas and since I’m having to ship gifts to my brother and his family, I decided instead of sending stockings I’d come up with another way to gift them their favorite candy treats.
A trip to the Container Store and Cracker Barrel and I was ready to make these fun Christmas Candy Tubes.
How To Make Candy Tubes:Supplies: Small mailing tubes from Container Store / Decorative Scrapbook Paper / Double Sided Tape / Yarn / Candy & Snacks How to: Cut your scrapbook paper to fit around your mailing tube and then attach the paper to the tube using double-sided tape. Make yarn Pom Pom’s (two for each tube) using this method. Punch a hole in the center of the plastic end caps for each tube. Insert the long ends of your pom-pom ties through the holes in the cap and tie to secure. Insert your favorite candy! These candy tubes are a fun gift idea that you can give to anyone and they’d make great party favors at your holiday party or Christmas dinner. Happy Crafting! linking to:
One of the things I love to do most around the holidays is to craft a few new decorative pieces for my home. And I love trying new products so when the opportunity came up to partner with Royal Design Studios I jumped at it.
One of the new collections they have this year was designed by the creative and talented blogger Jennifer Rizzo. The collection includes 16 unique designs and two of the stencils were the perfect jumping off point for my latest holiday project…
Even though I haven’t finished decorating for Christmas, I’ve been burning one of my favorite pine scented Christmas candles for a couple of weeks now.
The Balsam & Cedar candle from Yankee Candle may smell great but it misses the mark when it comes to fitting in with my holiday decor.
I’m super excited today because today’s the big day. It’s the first day of 30 DAYS OF HOLIDAYS with ConfettiStyle!
