Hi everyone! I’m Stephanie from SomewhatSimple.com and I am excited to be here today!

Today I’m sharing a fun stocking printable that will add a festive touch to your Christmas decor! Take a look:

christmas-engineer-print

Just print it + frame it and enjoy it the entire Christmas season!

Are you guys familiar with Engineer prints that you can get suuuuuuuper cheap from online office supply stores? It is my new favorite way to print oversized black and white printables for CHEAP! Here is how to do it:

Christmas Stocking Engineer Print

First, you’ll need to download the free printable by clicking HERE.

SUPPLIES:

  • stocking print (download from the link above)
  • frame (head to Hobby Lobby and use a coupon! 🙂 )

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Print a HUGE engineer print from your favorite online office supply store. We like Staples, so we’ll show you how to do it on their site! Go to Staples.com >>Shop by Category >>Copy & Print >>Engineering Prints.
  2. Select the size you’d like. (I always do the 18×36 since it is a standard frame size and it is easy to find frames without having them custom made.) An 18×36 print at Staples is only $3.59 AND it’s often ready the same day or next-day!
  3. Once you have your print, frame it and admire how pretty (and affordable!) your new piece of Christmas decor is!

VARIATION:

Instead of spending money on a frame, use some painters tape to tape these prints to your wall. You’d be surprised how nice they look in a collage! Give it a try!

Aren’t those so much fun?!

I’m sharing this fun Felt Christmas Tree Kids Craft on the Oriental Trading blog, Create Fun.

Felt Christmas Tree

I find myself looking for ways to keep my girls busy during winter break from school. They always want to do a craft project. It nice to find projects that they can do without much supervision. Then I can get my Christmas list finished while they are busy and not using electronics.

Felt Christmas Tree Kids Craft

I think that felt is a great medium for kids to use. It’s soft and forgiving and easy to cute and glue on.

Most of the supplies are probably already in your craft stash. Just start looking and I’m sure you’ll be able to find a lot of different supplies that will make your kids happy and keep them crafting.

The best part is that your kids can make these to giveaway for grandparent or neighbor gifts. A gift that will be treasured for years.

I like to serve this with a side of french bread and green salad.

This recipe makes a lot for my family of five, so I will make 2 pans and freeze one. I’ve include the instructions for that in the recipe.

Instead of freezing, you could take the extra meal to someone else. Everyone loves to have dinner made for them.

DIY Faux Fur Christmas Stockings

DIY Faux Fur Christmas Stockings

Hi there! I’m Lydi from Lydi Out Loud  and I’m so excited to be here today sharing my Easy DIY Faux Fur Christmas Stockings with you!

These Christmas stockings were a happy accident that were born from a big cleaning fail turned major crafting win… more on that later.  I’ve been loving all of the white faux fur Christmas stockings around but I couldn’t justify buying another pair of new stockings (apparently it’s a compulsion I have!) so I decided to make my own knock off faux fur Christmas stockings. The pair of stockings cost $4 and about 10 minutes to make (including glue gun heating time). That’s my kind of craft friends!

To start, I bought a couple of Christmas stockings at Dollar Tree and cut off the front cuff (but I will hold on to those cute pom-pom’s for a later date!)

Now back to that cleaning fail… I recently discovered that “faux” swiffers from the dollar store do not do a good job of dusting at all, but they make perfect faux fur! 2 boxes covered 2 stockings. I simply pulled them apart and gave them a good stretch so they covered more stocking real estate.

Generic dusters make great faux fur!

Then I hot glued my “faux” faux fur onto the Christmas stockings. Once all of the faux fur is in place, I kind of “teased” it… think of doing your hair for an 80s themed party. 😉

I fell in love with this plaid ribbon from Michael’s so I decided to use it to make a cuff for my Christmas stockings. I wrapped it around the top of the stocking and attached with hot glue.

And that’s it… easy, breezy and furry!

Use this Free Printable Stocking Template for a cute and easy gift idea for kids. Attach a candy cane using tape and you're done!

Hello there!  This is Katie from The Casual Craftlete blog.  Today, I am excited to share a free printable stocking template and a cute gift idea to go along with the printable.  I was trying to come up with a simple and inexpensive gift idea for my daughter to make for her friends at school.  I just love this adorable stocking with a candy.  Everyone loves candy and this gift idea is perfect for the holiday season.

Use this Free Printable Stocking Template for a cute and easy gift idea for kids. Attach a candy cane using tape and you're done!

I am a big fan of paper crafts and pretty paper pads.  Paper is so easy to use and the endless patterns and colors are customizable to any holiday.  This year I am really loving the whimsical, non-traditional colors.  My daughter’s favorite color is pink so this paper pad is just perfect for her and her little friends.

Here are the supplies you will need to make a stocking and candy cane gift:

  • Scrapbook Paper or Cardstock
  • Free Printable Stocking Template – you can download and print below
  • Washi Tape
  • Scissors
  • Candy Cane

Instructions:

Start by printing the stockings.  There are two stockings per page.  Each stocking is sized to fit perfectly on a piece of 6 x 6 inch scrapbook paper.  All printable by The Casual Craftlete are for personal use only.

Use this Free Printable Stocking Template for a cute and easy gift idea for kids. Attach a candy cane using tape and you're done!

DOWNLOAD STOCKING TEMPLATE HERE

  1. Cut out stockings using a pair of scissors.
  2. Trace the cut-out stockings on a piece of 6 x 6 inch scrapbook paper or cardstock.
  3. Place a candy cane in the center of the stocking.
  4. Use a piece of washi tape or tape to adhere the candy cane to the stocking.

It’s as easy as that!  OR you could put a piece of scrapbook paper into your computer printer and print the stocking that way.  It will eliminate step 2 above.

Use this Free Printable Stocking Template for a cute and easy gift idea for kids. Attach a candy cane using tape and you're done!

This Free Printable Stocking Template can be used for the gift idea I shared with you today or you can use them however you like.  The stocking would be a cute banner, advent calendar, and more.

Use this Free Printable Stocking Template for a cute and easy gift idea for kids. Attach a candy cane using tape and you're done!

Thank you for letting me share my stocking template and gift idea.  I hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Hello Crafting Chicks! I’m Michelle of Michelle Lea Creative. It’s that amazing time of year of holiday cheer and Christmas Tree Printables!!!

I don’t know about you all but I love to decorate every square inch of our home with Christmas joy. This year we are in a tighter space in our rental home. Our normal 4 or so trees (yes I may have a problem!) won’t really fit and I’m extremely sad about that… but it just means that I have to make the outside Clark Griswold worthy. Since I can’t go as crazy inside, I’m getting a little creative. I decided to combine my graphic design skills and creativeness to make this cute little free Christmas Tree printable… and it’s multipurpose!!  This tree is the perfect piece of joy for those of you in little spaces, with drab office cubicles or a safe and disposable decoration for the kiddos rooms.

tree-title

I have designed 12 different holiday cards to be displayed in the shape of a tree.

You can see the cascading number of cards to form the shape of the tree. Start with one at the top. There are no rules about which card needs to be on the top. You will technically only need 11 of the cards, but I wanted to give you the option to pick your favorites.

I also decided to use them to decorate my favorite boxwood and chicken wire wreath! Seriously the options are endless… project life, package decorations, framed holiday decor!

image3

Click HERE to download your cards, or click on the image below.

This will take you to dropbox. You need to fully download the files before you print them. You can use your home printer or take them to your local print shop. For the purposes of making a tree, you will want to use a thicker cardstock to make them more stable on the wall.

Michelle Lea Creative Christmas Tree Printable

I hope that you all enjoy these pretty little cards and I hope that you share some of your projects with me! Join me over on my blog and follow me on instagram! It’s my favorite.

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-6-48-23-amWe are thrilled to be a part of the Light the World campaign this December. It’s a simple way to spread the Light of Christ throughout the world this month.

The Savior has taught us that He is the light of the world. (John 8:12) However, He has also taught us that we are to be the light of the world! (Matthew 5:14) So how do we do this? The answer is simple, by doing as He did and serving daily.

Every day leading up to Christmas we (you!) can focus on a different Christ-like behavior and spread His light throughout the world.

 

Day 6

Day 6 is “Jesus Read the Scriptures and So Can You”

2017 Scripture Reading Chart

One way we can share in our scripture reading is to have regular family scripture study. This is our fifth year offering a scripture reading chart, but if this is your first year joining us let me explain a little in how these charts are set up.

2017 Mutual Themed Scripture Chart

Obviously, every day has a date you can mark off when you read. Every week has a heart, which is to keep track of Family Home Evenings and the bottom has months for temple attendance.

If you would like to start today and not wait for January 1st, you can find the 2016 version here.

This is our family’s first year using the chart for the entire year. I printed off a big 16×20″ poster of it at Sam’s Club and we have it hanging in the hall outside our children’s bedrooms and we read every night before bed. The kids get excited to put the stickers on and we have only missed once this whole year! Not every night is perfect, but we have been perfect about reading every night.

Scripture Chart 2017

Jolyn from Have Joy Designs created this years scripture reading chart. We’re offering the Mutual Themed version below and you can find a Primary Themed version on her site.

Holiday Festive Clothing for kids with Gymboree. This clothing guide will help you pick the perfect outfits for your kids this holiday season.

Holiday Festive Clothing for Kids with Gymboree

Being mother’s, we have 10 adorable children between the three of us, we understand the struggle to have your kids looking picture perfect for those Holiday pictures. Sometimes it is hard to find cute, age appropriate clothing for your kids. It’s even harder if you want them to follow a color scheme and for them to look cute for a special occasion.

But we have found the answer for you. We love Gymboree clothing for our kids, not just because they are durable and wash up so well, but because they are adorable and have great matching color schemes.

 

Since Christmas is on a Sunday this year we each wanted our children to have some great outfits that would look great but also be affordable and last. We feel in love with the Festive Family looks and were excited to try out our picks.
Holiday Festive Clothing for Kids with Gymboree Jamie chose these looks for her 4 kids.  We love how they coordinate…and love the pops of teal, blue and black.

Her girls love dressing up and looking fancy.  We love all of the accessories.  Headbands, mini purses, coats, and sweaters to add to your dressy outfits.  Those faux fur scarves are amazing…so cute, warm and soft!

The boys looks handsome in plaid shirts and sweaters . The tweed pants and hats are so sharp looking!

Moms are so busy!  Especially around the holidays.  We love being able to go to one store and find all of the coordinating outfits for the holidays.

Check out the outfits that we picked.cc-gym-collage-christmascc-gym-kids-3

Since Becky has 3 girls, the fancy factor was through the roof.

She let each of her girls choose the outfit that they wanted. The sparkles and glitter on the dresses, tights, shoes, and purses, made these girls happy.
