If you are doing a cookie exchange or need to do some baking for your child’s class Christmas party, these Reindeer Noses in a Mason Jar are sure to delight. I think these are adorable and so much FUN!
I have two fabulous 20 “something” nieces on my Christmas gift list. I use to find it oh so hard to buy for them. A few years ago I decided cash was the answer and this way they could buy something they really wanted.
My mission was then to find unique ways to give these gifts of money. Something a bit more fun than just money in a card. I did what most folks do when they are looking for unique and interesting ideas, I started searching the internet.
As soon as I read the poem, I knew this was the money gift idea I wanted to use.
It is simple and easy to throw together. You need, well, money, ribbon, a clear bag, some card stock to print your topper and a stapler to attach it, that’s it! A free download of the topper is available to you at the end of the post.
Today’s idea is a simple and creative way to add a little whimsy to the way you display and store wine glasses using a rusty old rake head.
With a lot of old rakes the wooden handles aren’t in the best shape and can pull off quite easily. This rake head was already pretty rusty, which I think adds to the charm. However, I did clean it off before I used it.
Here is a closer view of the rake with its lovely rusty patina. It’s hangs quite nicely with just one nail.
Glasses are hung by their stems and I added a bit of greenery and some of my old vintage ornaments.
The Christmas themed wine glasses add a bit of charm too – don’t ya think?
If you don’t want to display wine glasses, here is another cute idea. Hang stockings instead.
Another easy, simple, unique idea. Coil Spring Candle Holder.
In the small town I live in there is an event twice a year where people can put on their front lawn or on the curb side, items they no longer want and others can take what they like. After the event whatever is left over is considered heavy pickup and our local waste collectors will take it away for free.
This awesome coil spring was one of the items I picked up during that event and I debated what to do with it until I started thinking about my 12 Days of Christmas.
