I thought that this week, I would show you how to make wooden stars from scrap wood. Wooden stars are the perfect accent piece for bookshelves because you can use them any time of the year. And since we are using scrap wood to make them, you can make one for every holiday or season.
This year I am joining up with Remodelaholic and 21 other bloggers for the Remodelaholic Creative Christmas Challenge! And as my contribution to the challenge, I have created a reversible interchangeable DIY easel.
To challenge myself, I wanted to make something that a lot of people want, but add a spin to it – hence the reversible/interchangeable part. However, I didn’t stop there, I decided to also make this with no power tools. Yes, you heard me right! Absolutely no power tools.
This year, I have been making a lot of my own Christmas decorations. I wanted to have a good mix of neutral farmhouse decorations to go with my champaign gold theme. In particular, I wanted to find some wooden stars in a neutral finish. Well naturally, I am not likely to purchase something that I can make with things from my scrap wood bin. As a result, I am able to share with you how to make farmhouse style wooden stars!
When I see suggestions out there to hide presents in my underwear drawer, I have to laugh. People, underwear is no deterrent for a determined child! I guess I feel like that because, I was one of those kids that went on a scavenger hunt during the holidays to locate my presents. Actually, there were several of us, and not only did we search for the gifts, but if we found them, we would very carefully open them. Then, rewrap them to hide the evidence. Based on my experience, I can tell you that the first place that a kid is going to look is in your bedroom. So, if you need the best places to hide Christmas gifts that actually work, then read on.
Sometimes it is just not easy to shop for him. I know how you feel. I never know what to get for my husband. He doesn’t want anything. Which, I guess is good on one hand. On the other hand, I am always left scrambling around on the internet trying to find some suggestion that will bring me a light bulb moment. Since I totally understand that feeling, I am posting these 2017 Christmas Gift Ideas for Him.
