Wrapped Candy Cane Ornaments...

Here's another easy DIY ornament idea to add a little fun to your Christmas tree….candy canes wrapped with yarn or twine! I had a box of candy canes that I put on the tree last year and stored them away with the decorations. When I opened the box, they didn't look so good. I needed more ornaments for the tree I'm doing with the red, gray and natural colors, so I thought…why not use the yarn I had from the other projects and cover the candy canes?

Here's how they turned out!!

No Sew Burlap Silverware Place Setting Holder…

Hi everyone! The holidays are upon us and I've been getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Most all of our family functions have a large number of people, so I always serve the food buffet style. The table leading up to the food has a stack of plates and a basket of place setting/silverware holders. I try to do something with the silverware that's easy, so each guest can just grab and go…they'll have a napkin and the utensils all in one.

Here is my latest project…it's shown here on a plate, but mine are usually in a basket filled to the brim. At the time I was taking the pictures, I hadn't finished all the holders.. so I'll update this post when my holders are filled and ready to go!

This is a no sew project, so great for anyone to make…

Kitchen Towel Wall Hanging...

This past weekend, I shared a tutorial to make a quick sew pillow from a kitchen towel. You can click HERE to see that post and the instructions. In that post, I said I would share another idea for making a wall hanging from the other kitchen towels that I purchased.

Here it is and it is so simple…little or no sewing at all.

Perfect and inexpensive wall hanging to fill in those little areas around your house just crying for a little color or something Chrismassy.
