Over the next 12 Days you can look forward to posts that will include easy, elegant and inexpensive decorating ideas, craft ideas and gift ideas.
I’m starting off with this adorable Mini Hat Ornament.
I first saw it on Pinterest via goodknits.com. They are so easy and cute you’ll want to make lots before Christmas.
Here are the supplies you’ll need:
2. Toilet paper or paper towel tube
3. Pencil or pen
4. Measuring tape or ruler
To begin, flatten out your toilet paper tube. With your ruler measure sections that are 3/4 of an inch wide. Use your pen to mark the width and then with your scissors make your cuts.
Then measure and cut yarn strands approximately 12 inches long (I used about 40 strands per hat).
Next slip the loop from one strand of yarn through your paper tube. Loop it around the two ends and pull tight. Keep going all the way around the tube. Make sure you have enough strands to cover the paper but don’t squish the yarn too closely together.
I’ve always had a thing for serving trays. I’ve collected a lot of them over the years and have used them on many occasions. When I saw this one in a free box at a yard sale I knew instantly what I was going to do with it.
I wanted a chalkboard message board for my recently reorganized office/craft space (more on that in future post).
I think my favorite part of owning vintage cast iron frying pans is the fact they connect us to the past. For me, they bring back memories, especially of my dad cooking bacon and eggs for everyone in a big ol’ cast iron frying pan whenever we visited the cabin. He still has that pan and he still uses it.
We scored this rusty cast iron frying pan at an auction not long ago for a song because most people thought it wasn’t worth anything. The hubs knew he could revive it 🙂
