Little Drummer Boy Gift Tag::Bloggers Best 12 Days of Christmas

Little-Drummer-Boy-Printable-Gift-Tag

Hello there! I’m Laura from Inspiration for Moms and I am thrilled to be hanging with the Crafting Chicks today! I’m sharing with you an easy gift printable for the theme of twelve drummers drumming. When I think of drummers, I am reminded of one of my favorite Christmas songs…The Little Drummer Boy. So I took that song and combined it with a classic drummer boy silhouette to make some darling gift tags. These tags are a great way to add a little traditional Christmas to your special gifts. And they’re perfect if you’re up at 2 am wrapping those last minute gifts and need some very creative tags. See there, I gotcha covered! To print your own gift tags, just click on the image below and save to your computer. (When you’re ready to print, select 8×10 and two tags should easily fit on one piece of card stock.) If you’re looking for a few more Christmas crafts, my [Read More…]

Family Lacing Cards::Bloggers Best 12 Days of Christmas

lacing-cards-4-title-and-logo2

Hello, friends! I’m Kierste, the girl behind the blog Simply Kierste, and I’m delighted to be here! I adore the Crafting Chicks, and it’s so fun for me to be a part of the 12 Days of Christmas series, and share a really fun, easy, and inexpensive gift idea! We live far away from all of our family–most of them live thousands of miles away, and my sister is the closest at twelve hours away. We don’t get to see them as often as we would like, but it’s important to me that we do things to keep connected, and to help my kids know their family. I thought it would be fun to make a set of family lacing cards for my kids for Christmas a couple of years ago, and they LOVE them. I made a card for each of our siblings, and their families, and it’s so fun to have their cute faces so often. It’s a [Read More…]

Birch Wood Glitter Ornaments::Bloggers Best 12 Days of Christmas

Gold-Glitter-Ornament

Hi everyone! I’m Crystal from A Pumpkin & A Princess and I’m thrilled to be here to today! I loved the 12 days of Christmas event last year and am excited to share another project this year. For me the holidays and glitter go hand in hand. I’ve been glittering ornaments since I was 4 and I don’t think a year goes by that I don’t make some kind of glitter ornament or holiday decoration. This year I’m liking the plaid trend mixed in with a touch of gold. For the five golden rings I made these birch wood glitter ornaments. Supplies: ribbon (from Michaels) birchwood circle glue (I’m using Mod Podge) gold glitter (Martha Stewart -smokey quartz) hot glue To make the ornament I applied glue around the center of the birch wood. I wanted to leave that dark ring and used that as my guide on where to apply the glue. I then added glitter and removed any [Read More…]

Redbox-Neighbor-Gift

Hey friends and readers of the adorable Crafting Chicks!  I am Pam from Over the Big Moon and I am excited to share with you this Redbox Neighbor Gift Idea!  This idea actually came to me in the early hours of the morning, after being up all night with my daughter.  My poor Dylan girl had been screaming her head off for the previous 5 hours (her ear drum ended up bursting) and I was beyond exhausted and as I laid down I glanced at the Redbox case that was laying on my dresser and *BING* the idea hit me! Both my blog partner, Lisa, and I are busy wives, moms, bloggers, housekeepers, PTA helpers, involved in our churches, taxi drivers, etc and so we LOVE SIMPLE!  But, when the idea is simple, affordable and memorable then we have a win-win-win, which makes us beyond happy!  So, I was super excited a few weeks ago when this idea popped in my [Read More…]
