my project file...

I have been on a DIY project kick lately. Blog world is wonderful at such a time as this...take a peek at what I have been looking to do...{keep in mind, none of these are my photos...not yet anyway!}

#1. Advent Calendar

I love the idea of having a doll that can be dressed up in a piece of clothing each day for 24 days. This one runs around $90 (crazy), but a great idea none-the-less!


Another idea is to have a giant doll and have 24 pockets on her. I LOVE this idea, and we have this huge life size groovy girl doll that I could make a Christmas dress for, and we'd be set!



#2. Anything with ornaments


this wreath is made with with a wire hanger and ornaments. You can make one for ANY time of the year! LOVE IT



This would be perfect for Christmas!

Ornament trees are next on my list! just look what can be done with a little hot glue and some elbow grease?




or even a topiary....



3. paper wreath

this one is made with a styrofoam wreath, and strips of gathered paper!


4. Pom poms

these would be just perfect for birthday parties! Take 8 pieces of tissue paper, and do some folding and tie them up, and this is what happens!


5. fabric pumpkins

this will be on my list for next year....cute little pumpkins made out of fun fabric! Soo easy!!!


What is on YOUR DIY list???

We have one of the advent calendar dolls! My mom found a huge rag doll at a thrift shop and put a dress together for it and sent it our way. Here is my blog post about it from last year. The kids just LOVE it! (our pockets are rather large since there are four goodies in each one)
