Crafty Christmas

For the past two Christmas's I have done several crafts for my Mom and sister. I enjoy spending time crafting, and I feel like I can make their gifts more personal! This is not to say I did not also go out and buy some things off their Christmas list for them!

Last week I wrote about the letter H I made out of wine corks for my mom for Christmas last year. This year I knew more wine cork crafts were in order!

For my mom I spelled out the word FAMILY in wooden letters I bought from Hobby Lobby and then hot glued away the wine corks on.

I decided then to do my sisters initials in wine corks as well. I think it will be a nice little accent to her kitchen or living room!

This year I really wanted to do something with wine bottles. My first plan of wrapping them in string was a huge fail. So plan B came up.

I painted the bottles and then stenciled on designs. The colors are perfect for our living room and kitchen area and I loved how they turned out.

My last craft that I did was personalize coffee mugs for Mattie. She told us a while back that she didn't have many coffee mugs. I bought basic ones from Target, used paint pens for dishware, and decorated the way I wanted. They were very simple but I liked the end result!

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
