Christmas Crafting - homemade gifts


Doily Ornaments
{inspired by this}
"M" for us - everyone else got pics on both sides

Picture Block Ornaments 
{inspired by this}
Cut up wood into 2" blocks, sand, paint 2 coats, cut out 4 pics, mod podge pics to block (2 to 3 coats), install
'screw eyes' at top of block along with a little ribbon to hand - voila! I also added "2011" under the block in white puffy paint and made little dot designs on the tops. 


LOVE how these turned out...just how I envisioned

Homemade Mason Jar Granola
{recipe here}
Quart size mason jars, fabric & twine. Tags were made from pieces of a paper bag & $1 bin Christmas tag stickers

Cookies GALORE
{Pudding cookie recipe here and M&M recipe here - did not make chocolate bark pictured below}
I had these out for Christmas day, and gave them away in little gift bags for family to take home

  7. For the picture blocks, did you use pics printed on photo paper or regular paper? This looks like a cool project...I want to try it

    1. Thanks...I believe I used a glossy type of thicker paper, like cardstock.

    1. I just used a photo editor to make sure they were all cropped to be squares that were just under 2" :-)

  9. Your picture blocks is indeed admirable and impressive. Honestly, that idea doesn't come up into my mind. I'm actually thinking for a new Christmas decors and made my own craft but this one is irresistible. Great job Mejia :)

  11. Thanks a lot for the shared article. It is important to find a place to read something on the essay on violence: do not be so cruel. Especially if to take into consideration, the fact of how much cruelty and violence is out there. It makes it to where people cannot go outside locking themselves inside, living in constant fear thinking of danger.
