12 Days of Christmas

A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 9

                Welcome to A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas – Day 9

I am thrilled to be able to bring you A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas for the 4th year in a row. I’m excited as this year the theme of all of my posts will be about thrifted, gifted (diy) and vintage items and ideas that you can give for Christmas presents.

I love today’s clipart, those 9 ladies dancing made me smile.  Maybe if you give someone a gift similar to today’s gift maybe they will dance around too.

Today is Day 9 and this gift falls into the “thrifted” and “gifted” category. This gift is great for anybody on your list that loves to BBQ (no matter what the weather). I bought the never used/never worn apron at a thrift store and found the”new” BBQ brushes at a yard sale for $0.25 each in the summer.  The tag on each brush has a recipe for homemade BBQ sauce, which I planned on making but ran out of time, so I included a bottle of  our “go to” bottled BBQ sauce which is by Cattle Boyz and we use it in lots of our recipes, not just when we BBQ.

A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 8

                                    A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 8

Welcome to Day 8 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2017.  I am so glad you are here.  If you have been following along for the 12 Days of Christmas 2017 posts you know that the theme of my 12 posts are about either thrifted, gifted or vintage  Christmas presents that I am giving this year.

I have a friend who is crazy for angels, all shapes and sizes, as a matter of fact she just purchased and is displaying a 6ft wire light up angel for her front lawn.  I am going to help her add to her angel collection with this lovely vintage Lenox angel Christmas ball ornament that lights up.  It can be used as a tabletop decoration or hung on the tree.

I had purchased this in July and had tucked it away for her for Christmas.  I didn’t even realize it lit up until I pulled it out to wrap it. I think she is lovely, don’t you?

It’s been a great deal of fun preparing for this event, and I can’t wait to show you what the next Wandaful Thing  is – be sure to come back for Day 9.

A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 7

                Welcome to A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas – Day 7

I am thrilled to be able to bring you A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas for the 4th year in a row. I’m excited as this year the theme of all of my posts will be about thrifted, gifted (diy) and vintage items as Christmas presents.

Today is Day 7 and this gift falls into the “thrifted” and “gifted” category. This gift is for my mother, who is the great grandmother to my daughter’s three children. A beautiful boy who is 2 and a half and a set of twins 4 months old. This gift was actually the one that cost the least amount of money but I am sure it will be the one most treasured, especially for a person who doesn’t really need anything.

I found two very similar photo frames at Goodwill for $2.00 and a small wooden plaque for $0.50.  I soaked the top of the plaque with a wet rag and the paper picture peeled right off.

 

I printed and cut two pictures to fit into the frames and printed, cut and mod podged the third picture onto the little wooden plaque. 

I just know Great Nanny Louise is going to love this present. I smiled the whole time I was putting it together. Three adorable faces we all love.

I invite you to come back and see what Day 8 brings.

Thrifted, gifted and vintage gifts are A WandafulThing, unique and one of a kind.

Here is a recap with links to what’s happened so far and links to all the Wandaful Things I created last year (2016).

A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 5

                                    A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 

Welcome to Day 5 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2017. I’m honored to say that I’ve had loyal readers who have been with me since the beginning and look forward to what theme and  ideas I come up with year to year.

Day 5 is an interesting and unique twist on a hostess gift. I always make a point to bring a gift to the host/hostess when I am invited into their home. I also try to be creative with my gift and/or presentation of the gift.  I found this gorgeous Mont Royale Cardinal Collection vintage crystal ice bucket at Salvation Army (under $5.00), value $50-85 (win win).

A small poinsettia is also a nice hostess gift.  I don’t usually like the plain green pot they come in, so I wrapped it in a piece of decomesh (yes I love the stuff because it is so versatile) and I used the ice bucket as the way to present it.  I think it looks great and it’s actually two gifts in one.

It’s been a great deal of fun preparing for this event, and I can’t wait to show you what the next Wandaful Thing  is – be sure to come back for Day 6.

Here is a recap from days 1-5 along with links to all the Wandaful Things I created last year (2016).

A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 4

                Welcome to A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas – Day4

I am thrilled to be able to bring you A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas for the 4th year in a row. I’m excited as this year the theme of all of my posts will be about thrifted, gifted (diy) and vintage items as Christmas presents.

Today is Day 4 and this gift falls into the “thrifted” category.

I found two  large apothecary jars at an Estate Sale this year and knew they would make great gifts.  I was attracted to the “Shine A Light” on the front of the jar. One of the jars got some twigs, fake snow and silver balls and the other some fake snow and a candle.

I saw a very similar idea at IKEA this year with twigs and balls in a large clear jar.

I know these will look great in their new homes. I hope the recipients feel the same way. I cannot wait for you to come back and see what Day 5 brings.

Thrifted, gifted and vintage gifts are A WandafulThing, unique and one of a kind.
