{project 50} #01 Framed Rustic Christmas Tree

It’s Christmas eve! And here is my Christmas “tree”. 🙂

For this project, I reused an old frame and repainted it white. I have attached a jute string, shaping it like a Christmas tree.

Then I just added some Christmas ornaments, keeping it simple and clean. I also tried using the red fabric poinsettia as a topper.

Here’s to wishing you all a Merry Christmas! Cheers! 🙂




{project 50} #02 Poinsettia Wreath

Two more days until Christmas! 🙂

I have made this mini wreath from fabric poinsettias and a plastic lid of a bucket of chicken. *giggle*

To cover up the middle section of this piece, I printed a Christmas quote and placed it within the petals of the flowers.

Not bad for an easy-to-do mini wreath, right? 🙂


{project 50} #03 Christmas Wall Ornaments


Only three days until Christmas! I am sharing here another easy-to-do project to use as your wall decor.

First thing to do is make templates of ornament shapes using cardboard (I used cereal & cookie boxes here):

Then trace them at the back of a variety of Christmas gift wrappers (old or new ones), cut and paste them on your walls like wallpaper.

I used a silver non-permanent marker as “strings” for the wall ornaments.

I hope you like them. One more tip: to remove the wall ornaments just soak them with warm water using a rug, let it sit for a couple of minutes then wipe them off the walls.

See you here again soon! 🙂



{project 50} #04 Stamped Gift Wrappers

Four more days until Christmas! I bet we’re all busy wrapping our gifts at this time. This easy-to-do project is going to be a life saver when your wrapping and packaging papers run out. 😉

I am recycling these department store packaging papers from buying lots of stuff for gift-giving. Bring out the stamp pads and stamp collection and stamp, stamp, stamp away! 🙂

Come back here for more 50 Days till Christmas crafting projects!



{project 50} #05 Leathered Accessories

Welcome back to my 50 Days till Christmas projects! This is another recycling & repurposing project and the end products are a great addition to your gift-giving ideas.

I used an old leather wallet & a cardboard template of a feather, which I have drawn previously.

Just trace the template to the leather, cut with a sharp pair of scissors, then add some attachments, charms & findings like chains, dog tag necklace, key holder rings, lobster hooks, etc.

 And you will have something like these:


I’ll see you back here again! 🙂



{project 50} #06 Paper Christmas Garland

Hello again and welcome back to my 50 Days till Christmas projects! 🙂

I have given this particular garland to my son’s class adviser to use it as an addition to their Christmas decorations at school.

You can already string together these circles for a simple garland OR

write your Christmas message like so:

{project 50} #07 Recycled Paper Flowers (no. 2)

For my next easy-to-do project, I have made another batch of paper flowers using brown grocery bags.

Since I do not have my own circular and decorative punchers yet (about 1 inch in diameter and bigger) I draw my circles using a cardboard template then cut the circles away with regular and decorative pairs of scissors. If you have those circular and decorative punchers that I am talking about, good for you! 🙂

Next thing to do is fold the circles to make triangular ones then glue them together. I glued smaller paper circles for the middle part of the paper flowers. You can also glue some buttons, if you prefer.

Use the paper flowers as a gift topper when using printed gift wrappers.

Come back here again for another 50 Days till Christmas project! 🙂
