Scrap wood trees

If you have scrap wood, even in lengths less than 11″, you can whip out these easy and beautiful scrap wood Christmas trees. Measurements for 3 sizes on the blog.

I’m part of a Facebook group called “Women in Woodworking” and today’s project was one that someone shared on that page.  I wouldn’t steal thunder, but the building plans that were posted didn’t work – the measurements were out somewhere – so I finagled a bit and came up with a […]

Updating dollar store ornaments to fit your colour scheme

Buying new ornaments can be really expensive. Today I’m showing you an inexpensive way to update dollar store ornaments to match any colour scheme.

KitKat candy sleigh

This time, there was a method to my sugar frenzy – I wanted to make KitKat […]

Simple pinecone ornaments

Simple pinecone ornaments – don’t buy new when all you need is a slight update to the old!

Last weekend I put up the main Christmas tree in the house – my beautiful 9′ Hayden Pine that I bought myself as a Christmas gift last year.

He is so beautiful all on his own, but you know I change up my Christmas tree ornaments and colours each year.  I mean, what kind of a blogger would I be if I just […]
