Custom Easter Basket by ConfettiStyle (20) copy

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.

Framed Gift Wrap

source

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.

DIY Candy Tube by ConfettiStyle4

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!

DIY Mug Wrap by ConfettiStyle4

Is there anything better than a steaming cup of  hot chocolate with a swirl of whip cream and chocolate sprinkles during the cold weather months?

A cup of spiced tea comes close in my book but I prefer hot chocolate when I relaxing at the end of a long day.

8 Christmas Door Basket with Royal Design Studio Stencils

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.

You probably know Royal Design Studio from their amazing collection of home decor and decorating stencils, but may not know that they also have a wonderful selection of holiday design stencils.

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…

Christmas 2014

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.

Balsam and Cedar

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 in the process of putting together our Thanksgiving table and one of the elements I wanted to include was Glitter Stripe Taper Candles.  I usually burn pillar candles as part of any table setting I create but I love the look of taper candles as part of the centerpiece.
