DIY a Simple Farmhouse Style Christmas Ornament


So do you remember my cutesy red trucks hauling Christmas tree's mini ornaments that I used in making these fun ornaments? ♡



Well I had some leftover so I decided to use them in another ornament diy.

Isn't this cute?


I had some plastic clear ornaments that are actually in half, and you simply decorate and
snap them together..  so I decided to try to place the mini truck ornament inside.




So I used a drop of e6000 on each end of the truck ornament and set it inside half of the larger
clear ornament making sure it was facing the right way of course. 😉
Then I just left it alone to dry.


Then I placed the front and back of the clear ornament together, tied a small piece of twine through
the hole for a hanger, and I went ahead and added a white bow just because I thought it was cute.







What a fun addition to our farmhouse style themed Tree.
I do love that little red truck. :0)


These clear ornaments are so fun to create your own ornament designs!
Can do so much with them.. place keepsakes inside, notes, photo's, small trinkets,  just so fun
to have on hand.  (great to use for a fun kids ornament project too)

If interested in picking some up I used this size, & you can find them here!

Stocking Stuffers for the Furbabies

While we like to stuff the stockings for Christmas for our family,
we also have a Stocking for our fur babies to enjoy so I decided to share
a few idea's for the fur family members.

If you don't already have a stocking, I ran across these paw shaped stockings.
So cute.




For the puppy dogs
A new pet bed is a fun gift idea:


                          


My little Gracie likes her blanket as well, and these look adorable. (come in pink or blue)
                                                           

For the stockings, toys are always included..

(the kind of toys that you place an empty water bottle inside are a hit at my house)



Crinkle Toys are a fun one:


                                            


Squeaker Toys (no stuffing) :0)







Rope Toys





Treats are a fun addition, whether they are homemade or purchased.




                                                                  





For the Kitties:
They like their toys too.

This set of toys looks like a fun mix. 
(has good reviews as well)



   

Cute cat bed idea's:                        
                                         







Another fun item might be a toy box to contain all their fun toys!

                                              


I am thinking I need to pick up one of those striped totes to corral all the toys..
so cute!




A few other idea's might be:

- shampoo / conditioner
- sweater
- hair bows for the longer haired fur babies
- new collar / harness
- new leash
- new dishes
- treat jar




So what are your favorite gifts to give for your fur family?

(*please note these are idea's that I would purchase for our personal fur family,
 each pet is different and it is up to you to determine what items are appropriate for your pets)

Go To Stocking Stuffers for the young adults

We have a tradition in our home of opening up our stockings on Christmas Eve.
It also usually involves silly string and a hilarious silly string fight.
It is something my husband and I started with our kids when they were
little and we have done that pretty much forever.

Searching for some fun stocking stuffer style gifts I thought I would share my
Go To Stocking Stuffer Fave's and include a few Inexpensive Gifts that would
also work in a stocking.   Our kids are now in their early 20's so this is
geared more towards young adults, and the young at heart adults. 😜





I had to include this little bluetooth speaker because I just picked it up for myself.
I was searching for a bluetooth speaker to use when working that I could take with me
outdoors etc. when I am not wanting to use headphones/ear buds and I am really quite
impressed with this little gem.   It is definitely going on the list.
It would make a great gift but also fits easily in a stocking.
It had great reviews, says it is waterproof which is a nice feature,
and comes in a lot of fun colors.  I chose the red.  😉





Snacks are always on the stocking stuffer list!
I like to buy them in packages like these:


                    


I always add in some candy as well.. gotta have candy canes etc.

However I am personally avoiding sugar right now (keto) so I will probably
look for a keto friendly desert to make, or I may just decide to have a splurge day.
We will see. 😉


Other items I usually include in stockings are the practical kind.
The kind of gifts that are not quite as fun but always nice to get!
Toothpaste, floss, body wash, new shower loofah, 
and of course lip balm makes the cut.


                      


Socks are another great practical gift to include.


                                                 


a manicure set could be a fun idea:


                                                    


To Go Tumblers are always a good one,
Who doesn't love a new to go mug.

I am totally crushing on this seafoam green one!


                            

Some other fun idea's:



                                          


  • Gift Cards (favorite coffee shop etc.)
  • Gloves
  • Hat / Scarf
  • Makeup
  • Hair accessories
  • Christmas Ornament (write the year on it somewhere as a fun keepsake)
  • Deck of Cards
  • Movie / CD
  • Fruit


What are some of your favorite go to's for Stockings?


- TinaH


             (can't forget the fur family and I will be putting together a list for them as well)
