Thanks to The Bouqs for sponsoring today’s post. All opinions are 100% my own. I adore fresh flowers! Don’t you?

I am excited to share these adorable DIY Wood Slice Coasters today for my 25 days of Christmas Series!
I have two confessions to make. 1. I love, love, love the new trend of using branches 2. I originally planned on making a wreath but it got so cold that I didn’t get all my slices cut from my logs and I am hating the cold too much to go out and do it now! <—True Story!
So I did manage to get a few slices when I was “testing” out my project idea when it was warmer. Note to self…just cut them ALL next time! Moving on. I used my Ryobi Compound Miter Saw and sliced a log into four nice slices. You can also buy these but I just used some actual logs!
I wanted to personalized them so I dug in my stash and pulled out some alphabet stencils and my DecoArt Americana Black Paint and a foam brush!
When stenciling them, be sure to dab off the excess paint from your foam brush before stenciling.

Today I have a Snowflake Christmas Tree Handmade Card Idea to share. I know that photo Holiday Cards are a fan favorite and personally mine as well but sometimes you also need a holiday card to attach to a gift for someone who you may not know on very personal basis…like your kid’s Karate Instructor or Swim Teacher or Bus Driver. This card is so easy to make and you can also make it larger scale as a piece of wall art!
- Snowflake Punch
- Green Scrapbook Paper
- Red Scrapbook Paper
- Yellow Scrapbook Paper
- Brown Scrapbook Paper
- Card Blanks or Cardstock to make some cards
Your scrapbook paper can be patterned or solid! Your choice! Mix it up! Use what you have! Get creative! :)
First things first…get punching! Start with Green…you need the most of those. A few red and 1 yellow (or gold) and 1 brown.
I have partnered with Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores to bring you my matching hat, scarf & mittens tutorial! This is a fabulous handmade gift idea that will be sure to keep your recipient warm and cozy this holiday season!
Isn’t my baby sister purrttty? She’s the best model ever!
So I have to ask a question…Anyone else LOVE fabric? I mean, I am a total beginner sewist and even before I got my sewing machine…I LOVED FABRIC! My favorite thing to do is browse all the awesome fabrics at Jo-Ann’s. Even better…the remnant rack! I love, love, love the remnant rack! Would you believe me that I made these mittens, scarf and hat from a remnant of fleece I picked up?
Jo-Ann’s has tons and tons of choices for fleece. I also picked up some for a cute toddler knot blanket that I will share soon! Here is how I made my matching set!
2/3 yard of fleece in your favorite color or pattern
