Custom Bible Cover

How is your holiday season so far? Ours is great but busy, busy. I have not forgotten about the blog. It is just much farther on my to-do list right now. I have been so busy with different crafty things. BUT, I cannot show them to you because they are all presents. Bummer. Expect to see a ton of things here, after Christmas.

Until then, I wanted to show you a custom Etsy order I did. One of my goals has been to work on more bible covers for the shop. It is one item that is looked at often, but I only have one. I want to make more color choices, and I hope to soon. This the bible cover that was requested, and I think it turned out cute.

I can't wait to have some free time (Ha, ha) and make some more.
I hope to make the Christmas pillow, I have had in my head for weeks, this afternoon. But we shall see, there are so many things I wanted to do for Christmas, but there is just not enough time. I know next year to start way early on all of my projects!

Rasta Hat

As with the other teen beanie I made, My friend's daughter wanted a beanie also. She wanted rasta colors, with no black and long braids. It is not my favorite, but I also do not have a teenagers style. Hope she likes it!

Ornament Wreath

I am sure you have seen about 200 of these on the web, but I wanted one, so I did. I saw one at Pier One had one for at least $30, it was all red and beautiful, but mine cost $9, so ha!
Here is a link to the original wreath that others, better than me, have copied.

I used one wire hanger, glue gun, a ton of dollar store ornaments, and ribbon.
First step is to hot glue all of your ornament tops to the ornament itself so that it will not fall off. This is time consuming but worth it, and it will ensure your wreath lasts.
Next, make your wire hanger into a circular shape and make it ready for putting on your ornaments.
Put all of your ornaments on. I used 8 tubes of various sizes of dollar store ornaments. I would guess it took maybe 75 or more. The wreath is bigger, so you could use less and make a smaller wreath. As you put the ornaments on they will settle in place and start to hide the wire hanger.
Once you have them all on you can carefully close the hanger by wrapping one end around the other. This can be hard, other wise you could glue or tape the ends together, and hide it with a ribbon.
I added a ribbon, and hung it nicely on my door. It is so thick that with the storm door, the door barely closes, but it works, and I love it. Now I just need to find more time to make all the other Christmas things I want to make! Merry Christmas to all, I hope you are having a blessed holiday season.
