Well 2020 sure wasn’t what any of us expected. It’s been an interesting, strange, challenging, reflective and creative year for me.
During my reflective period I was thinking about what I wanted to do for my 12 Days of Christmas 2020 from A WandafulThing. I decided to go back to the roots of why I started this blog to begin with, to share my love of making, baking, creating and decorating. Over the next four weeks I will share some simple, easy and budget friendly ideas just in time for the holidays.
Be sure to subscribe to the blog so you don’t miss a single day or idea. Day One is scheduled for Monday, November 09, 2020.
Here is a recap with links to all the WandafulThings that were ‘Pinterest’ inspired I created last year (2019).
2019 recap – 12 Days of Christmas Pinterest Inspired
Wow, I cannot believe this will be my 6th year in a row bringing you 12 Days of Christmas from A WandafulThing. This year I am going to be making 12 crafts that are Pinterest Inspired – meaning, I’m going to search Pinterest and pick 12 items to make. I will link the inspiration post to my post and you can judge whether it was a pass or a fail.
Stay tuned, I cannot wait to show you all the fabulous things I’ll be making this year.
Here is a recap with links to all the Wandaful Things I created last year (2018). If you didn’t get a chance to see what I did last year it was all about crafts that could be made in 30 minutes or under.
Here is a recap of the 12 Days of Christmas 2018 :
Wow, I cannot believe this will be my 5th year in a row bringing you 12 Days of Christmas from A WandafulThing. I’m excited this year as all the crafts can be made in under 30 minutes.
Some of my posts will be about items you can make with the help of your Cricut Machine but don’t be disheartened if you don’t have one as I’ll give you alternate ways to do the crafts.
So stay tuned, I cannot wait to show you all the fabulous things I’ll be making this year.
Here is a recap with links to all the Wandaful Things I created last year (2017). If you didn’t get a chance to see what I did last year it was all about vintage items as Christmas presents, take a look…
Welcome to A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas – Day 10
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 10 and this gift falls into the “gifted” category. A bottle brush snow globe. This is not a new idea as it has been trending on Pinterest, YouTube and all over the internet not just this year but it seems in past years. There are many variations on this idea and I decided to use a mason jar as my globe (no surprise as everyone knows how much I love mason jars). This gift was so easy to pull together and took a total of five minutes.
I found a little set of fake mini lights in my craft stash and decided to string them on the bottle brush tree before I glued the tree to the lid. Just add fake snow and it’s done!
I think it is really cute and I’m not sure I want to give this gift away. For the moment it is sitting on a shelf in my living room. Maybe it’s Merry Christmas to me??
I invite you to come back and see what Day 11 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).
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.
