Succulent Wreath and Hedgescapes!

 I am a fan of fake plants because I seem to kill them regularly. If I had a giant mansion with lots of property, I'd do it right and put in a labyrinth. I'd want a big windy maze for spooks and a giant monster in the center. ~ But really, hedges can be quite wonderful for privacy and easy to maintain. Great for fences or borders. Check out Hedgescapes Flame retardant, easy to care for and they wont fade...and super great for drought prone areas! Check out these Hedges  They have artificial grass, flower walls, topiaries and more!  I love this wreath.  It's so thick I can use it as a centerpiece with my cake stand, lights and a candle.

Vintage Christmas Charm Necklace

 Vintage Christmas Charm Necklace! This is a fabulous craft for tweens or teens to make. They are a great handmade gift too, and they are oh, so cute! I received lots of goodies from Oriental Trading. They have everything you need for crafting, parties and holidays. You will need:   Necklace Chains   Christmas charms (I got the vintage Santa charms, snowflakes and cookie cutter)   Jump rings   Jewelry Pliers  My 12 year old was thrilled to make a handmade gift for her friends! She divided up the charms and made 6 necklaces.  The charms are darling! I love the look of all these silvertone charms together. Then it is simple work. Use the pliers to slide open a jump ring and hook it on a chain. Then tighten the jump ring.  Each necklace has 5 or 6 charms and looks darling! Perfect for wearing all December long!  I love the Vintage Santa charms and the delicate snowflakes! This is a great craft to help older children feel success while crafting! Orient

Sparkly Ornament Christmas Wreath!

 Sparkly Ornament Christmas Wreath!  I love decorating for the holidays!  I love wreaths packed with ornaments! I started with a lit pine greenery wreath.  I used ornaments, glitter flowers and gold ribbon. Also wire and pliers.  I made a big bow with the ribbon (using this tutorial) Then wired it onto the wreath. And wrapped the ribbon around the wreath.  Then I used the wire to tie the glitter flowers onto the wreath.  And then hooked on tons of bright colored ornaments with wire!  Hang it up and plug it in! I love a giant lit up wreath on the porch! Check out these wreaths too! Lots of fun holiday ideas! Joy Holiday Wreath Glamorous Gold Swirl Wreath! Chevron Star Wreath Sandwich Bag Wreath!

Christmas Tablescape!

I love decorating with black and white! It can look fabulous for any holiday with just a couple different elements! I received lots of these goodies from Oriental Trading! They are the perfect spot for all your wedding, holiday and party needs!  Plus they have lots of high quality craft and art supplies, jewelry and lots of fun novelties and fun for kids! Here's what I used: Gold lanterns Black tissue balls Red Metal Lanterns DIY Stars Black and White Table Runner Black Taffeta tablecloth Jar with Lid Black and White Candy The DIY stars I used for place settings. I spray painted them gold and let them dry. Then used a razor knife and cut a slit in the center of the star. Then write a place card on cardstock and insert it in the slit. They stand up straight and look darling! I used little fairy lights to add a glow to the table. The damask plates are my favorite, I've had them for years. Oriental Trading has fun black and white party supp
