DIY Christmas Gift Ideas Under $10

DIY Christmas gift ideas you can make for under $10! So easy and creative! Love these!
It's almost here! Christmas is only a week away!

And I still have some gifts to find. 
Okay fine, all of them. I have to find all of them.

Somehow every year my to-do list grows like a freaky beanstalk housing a hungry giant, and I'm always left scrambling last minute for tissue paper and gift cards and some weird Nerf contraption for my little brother.

20+ DIY Christmas Ornament Wreath Ideas

20+ DIY Christmas ornament wreaths that you can make yourself! LOVE these! So many ideas!
You guys. Never have I ever been so amazed and surprised by something. After sharing this year's ornament wreath on the blog, tons of you emailed me photos of wreaths you had created inspired by that post. 

In just two weeks, I had an inbox bursting at the seams with pictures of ornament wreaths.
Imagine my inbox as Chris Farley in a little coat. And don't EVEN act like you don't know and love Tommy Boy.

How To Make a NO-SEW Christmas Tree Skirt

How to make a NO-SEW Christmas Tree Skirt for less than $10! This is so easy! LOVE!
A couple days ago, when I shared this year's Christmas Tree, the tree skirt totally stole the spotlight. I'm not mad at it though, because it's totally my favorite part of the tree, too.  So, as promised, here is the full tutorial about how I made it. It was super easy to make and required absolutely zero sewing. 
You KNOW how I feel about sewing.

How To Paint Furniture: why it's easier than you think!

A guide to painting furniture. This tutorial makes it so easy!
Last year some friends gave us a set of old dressers before they moved to the beach. The dressers were in decent shape, but definitely needed a little work.
I just knew I was the girl for the job.

And so do all my friends, which is why I've never been able to park in our garage. Not once.
You win some, you lose some.

The Tree Reveal and My Favorite Project EVER!



It's officially that time of year.
You know, the time of year where I no longer seem like a crazy person for doing nonstop Christmas projects in November. 
And I couldn't be more excited.
Virginia and December are like peas and carrots.
For lack of a better analogy.

It's also that time of year when I finally get to share our Christmas tree with you (and one of my favorite projects ever)!
