Holiday Crafting

So I won't comment how it's been nearly a year since my last post. Between moving, remodeling my kitchen (among other projects), and new baby coming, I've been a little preoccupied. I have done some projects though and wanted to at least record that. Most of my ideas came from Pintrest (of course, right?). I made a collection of holiday craft items for my sister-in-law's Christmas present: The first was wood painted black with silver vinyl on two sides - one for Halloween and one for Christmas:
This is a 4th of July (pottery-barn inspired) banner I used from another lovely sister-in-law's blog :
Her pictures are much better - you can see them HERE And then these JOY letters were cardboard letters (found at Joanns), covered in a printable music print found HERE:
Then with the extra burlap I had from the banner, I made another thanksgiving banner: This was actually the EASIEST project of all.... All I did was cut the burlap, glue it to twine, and then put letters/designs printed on the Silhouette adhesive cardstock. The cardstock sticks amazingly well to the burlap. Seriously - it took me a half hour to put it all together. MY kind of project!
