outdoor carpet christmas tree...

Oh my goodness, how much
fun is this Christmas Tree?

We purchased some outdoor carpeting
from the giant carpet rolls at Home Depot.  
It was only $3.95, and you could
make so many!

We grabbed a straight edge and a Sharpie.

Next we drew our tree on the back.

Then we cut it out.

We used a scrap of trim for the trunk.

You could leave it plain....

or add a string of battery
powered lights.

The carpet will hold up in the elements
and the texture is perfect for a tree!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

simply thankful...

If you are looking to simplify your Thanksgiving
decorations, then this idea is for you!

The letters at the craft stores are meant
to be painted, decoupaged, covered 
with fabric or glitter...well let's buck
the system and keep them naked :-)

 So simple!

Happy Thanksgiving!

personalized aprons...

How much fun would it be to have
personalized aprons for all of your
little Thanksgiving helpers?

 We picked up this cute

 It's always difficult to decide which cute 
Hazel & Ruby font to use, but we 

Simply apply the lettering and use a sponge
brush with acrylic paint.

Super easy and super cute!
Happy crafting!

thanksgiving kids table...


This is such a fun table for your kids.
We used craft paper instead of a table cloth...
it's perfect to color on!


 Turn the pumpkin on its side.
Use a screwdriver to make holes
for the crayons.


We hot glued on a little face.


We promise it will be a hit!

christmas countdown...

 How cute is this advent calendar?
We are in love with the Oh Deer

 It was difficult to narrow down all the
cute choices for our tree.

We taped it right on to the wall.

The presents were created by using 
these super cute cards and envelopes

Are you as excited as we are about
Talk about useful!

 After the paint dries, 
write your activity for that day.

We wanted to create an advent calendar 
with fun seasonal ideas for families.

Tape the gifts under the tree.


You could leave the tree plain,
but why would you when
you have these cute options :-)

Happy Holidays!

embellished thermos...

Hi Friends! Check us out today at Hazel & Ruby 
with this simple project. It would make
 a perfect holiday gift.

We started with this cute (and inexpensive)
thermos from IKEA.

We are in love with the new holiday 
This set has so many seasonal options.

This beautiful snowflake
fit perfectly.

We sponged on some red acrylic paint.

Remove the mask and allow time to dry.

Such a simple and useful gift!
Warmest wishes!

plastic pumpkin repurpose...

These covered plastic pumpkins would
be perfect for gift giving or storage.

We ended up multiple pumpkins this Halloween,
so we thought it would be fun to repurpose them.

We used some fabric scraps and 
hot glued them on.

So easy!

Perfectly precious pumpkins for your 
 own little pumpkins!

instant artwork...

 It's funny how just adding a frame 
can add importance to any area.

We started with Hazel & Ruby's 

We sprayed a sheet of white paper with
Imagine Crafts. Next we scribbled
around the letters with the 

 The ink is AMAZING!
It puddles and pools and
dries really thick.

Such great texture.

Perfect reminder for me to read more
(really it should just say "turn off The
Real Housewives of New Jersey").
Happy Crafting!
