Add some vintage vibes to your holiday décor with these DIY vintage Santa paper pinwheels!

If Christmas is your favorite holiday, you are going to love the décor project. These DIY vintage Santa paper pinwheels are super easy to make and add a fun pop of color and design to any room in your home. I chose a Santa stamp from Rubberstamps.com to add to the center of my festive pinwheel. I love the design of the Santa stamp since it definitely has a vintage feel, which paired perfectly with my solid and polka dot cardstock!

Check out the full video tutorial below to see how you can make DIY vintage Santa paper pinwheels!

Supplies:

Step 1: Trim 4 sheets of patterned paper down to 4”.

Step 2: Add 1-inch score lines across the entire strip of paper. Repeat on the remaining 3 sheets.

Step 3: Accordion fold the entire strip paper. Repeat on the remaining 3 sheets.

Step 4: Add hot glue to the end of one strip of paper and glue another strip to it. Repeat with the other 2 strips.

Step 5: Flip the ends up to form a circle. Then, glue the two ends together.

Step 6: Place a small bowl on a piece of white paper and trace around it.

Step 7: Add the Santa stamp to the acrylic block and go over it with black ink.

Step 8: Stamp in the center of the circle and cut it out.

Step 9: Press down on the center of the ring of paper to form a pinwheel. Place a heavy object in the center to hold it down (I used my bowl).

Step 10: Add hot glue to the back of the stamped circle, place it in the center of the pinwheel, and press down.

Step 11: Cut out another circle, add hot glue on the back, place it on the back center of the pinwheel, and press down.

Now, all you need to do is add some tape or 3M strips to the back of these DIY vintage Santa paper pinwheels and hang them up on the wall! You can also customize them to match your own holiday style whether it’s classic red and green or more trendy colors like pink and blue. This technique can also be carried over to other holidays and celebrations, so be sure to sure to check out all of the stamp options fromRubberstamps.com!

DIY Feelin’ Lucky Stamped Shamrock Frame

Bring some green into your home with this DIY Feelin’ Lucky Stamped Shamrock Frame!

It’s that time of year to get your home dressed up in green in preparation for March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day!  Since we could all use a little extra luck in our lives I thought it would be fun to create a shadowbox full of shamrocks.  I grabbed the shamrock stamp and 2 different green inks from Rubberstamps.com.   I had so much fun making and cutting out the shamrocks for my frame that I ended up making a few more to tape to my wall for an extra bit o’ luck! 

Check out the full video tutorial below to see how you can make your own DIY Feelin’ Lucky Stamped Shamrock Frame!

Supplies:

Step 1: Stamp numerous shamrocks using both green inks

Step 2: Use scissors to cut out each shamrock, making sure to leave a white border.

Step 3: Place the back of the frame on top of the white cardstock, trace around it, and cut it out.

Step 4: Use a Cricut cutting machine to cut out “Feelin’ Lucky”.  You’ll want it to be 4 inches wide.

Step 5: Place a piece of transfer tape on top of the vinyl, rub it with your finger, and slowly peel it off.  The vinyl design will come up with the transfer tape.

Step 6:  Lay the transfer tape on top of the cardstock, rub over it with your finger or a card, and slowly peel off the transfer tape.

Step 7:  Add a foam square to the back of a shamrock and place it on the cardstock.  Continue adding foam squares to the back of the shamrocks and layer them.  Alternate both green colors.

No matter your skill level, this DIY Feelin’ Lucky Stamped Shamrock Frame is the perfect décor piece to display in your home.  Take it down after St. Patrick’s Day, or leave it up all year round for a little bit of luck every day!

Make the bag as sweet as the treat with these playful DIY stamped Valentine’s Day treat bags!

I’m not sure how it happened, but Valentine’s Day has become one of my favorite holidays!  I love creating cute décor from heart tassel garland to festive pillows.  With my twins in pre-school I now get to send them with sweets and treats to pass out to their classmates during holidays.  I feel like I have been waiting to do this all my life!!!

With Christmas being officially over and Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I wanted to get a head start on the goody bags for my kids’ classmates.  I wanted to create something simple, yet cute.   When I saw the heart carved tree stamp from Rubberstamps.com. I wanted it to be the focal point of my treat bags since it’s so darn cute!  I also used their “Happy Valentine’s Day” stamps to add even more detail!  Check out the full video tutorial below to see how simple it is to make your own DIY stamped Valentine’s Day treat bags!

Supplies:

Step 1: Place the heart carved tree stamp on to the 4×4 acrylic block.

Step 2: Cover the stamp with brown pigment ink.

Step 3: Stamp the white treat bag.  Let the ink dry.

Step 4: Snip the inside of the heart on the treat bag and cut it out.

Step 5: Cut a ½” strip of gold glitter and pink cardstock.

Step 6: Cut both strips the width of the white treat bag.

Step 7: Add the “Happy Valentine’s Day” stamp to the 2X2 acrylic block, add black ink, and stamp the center of the pink strip of paper.

Step 8: Cut notches out of one end on both strips of paper.

Step 9: Peel off a small piece of double-sided tape and add it to the right side of the pink strip, peel off the liner, and place it on the gold strip so it’s at an angle.

Step 10: Add double-sided tape to the back of the gold strip, peel off the liner, and then add it the bottom of the white treat bag.

Step 11: Add a double-sided tape to the back of the pink strip, peel off the liner, and press it down on the treat bag.

Step 12: Add candy to the inside of a clear treat bag and place it inside of the white treat bag.

Step 13: Fold down the top of the treat bag and secure to the back with a piece of double-sided tape.

What’s great about this DIY stamped Valentine’s Day treat bag is you can add whatever you want to the inside.  You could add festive M&M’s like I did, or you could do a candy-free idea and add stickers or other small toys.  These treat bags are 100% customizable!

DIY “Believe” Framed Christmas Photo

Last year when I was out with my family, Evelyn spotted Santa in a store across the street from where we were walking. She wanted to go over and check things out. As we walked over, Santa saw us coming and came to the window. He knelt down to say “hi” to Evelyn. I was able to quickly grab my photo and capture a magical picture of the two of them.

When it comes to candy, I have a bit of a problem.  I’m obsessed with all things sweet and sugary!  I’ve never met a piece of candy I don’t like.  Since I’m obsessed with all candy, you better believe I was super pumped to find out there’s a day dedicated to celebrating candy in all of it’s forms.  National Candy Day falls 4 days after Halloween, which means the candy celebrations continues on! Yippee!

I love hosting parties, but hate all of the extra cups that collect.  Why is it that people can never manage to keep track of their water bottles, cups, and wine glasses?!  It never fails that at the end of the night every room in my house becomes a cup/glass graveyard!
