Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Pine Cone Ornament Tutorial

I don't know when all of you put your trees up and decorating them, but I like to wait for about 10 days before Christmas. Even if you do it earlier you can still make theses really cute pine cone elves ornaments for your tree. I found them on Martha Stewart. I think I will have to make these for my grandkids. 

Happy crafting!

Kidz Korner - Popsicle Stick Christmas Trees

Kidz LOVE making and decorating for Christmas. These Popsicle Stick  Christmas Trees may need a little adult help but the little ones will have lots of fun making them and displaying them. I suggest putting their names and dates on the back and in years to come when the kidz are decorating for their own families, you can give them to them for the grands to enjoy! Pop on over to One Little Project blog for the full tutorial and variations on the decorating. Simply click on the photo above.

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Repurposed Mason Jars For Christmas

I always like all the ideas people come up with to recycle mason jars and since Thanksgiving is over and we are now having to start decorating for Christmas I thought maybe this tutorial on how to make these really pretty centerpieces from YellowBlissRoad will add to your decorating. My daughter has mason jars all over her house with different decorating ideas and they really look neat. So let's give this a try. :)

Have fun!

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Vintage Thanksgiving Table

Time to get those Thanksgiving tables decorated. Or at least think about it. LOL!. I thought I would take a look at Etsy and find some vintage items for your Thanksgiving table and bring back the yesteryear's.  

First we need a tablecloth to cover our table and pinehaven2 has this really colorful one. 

Then we need a centerpiece for our table. Cornucopia's always make a nice centerpiece for a table and TheGayDivorcee has this one.  

Candles are always good for the Thanksgiving table and you can't have a vintage Thanksgiving table with out the traditional turkey candles. :)  Check out this nice pair from JoAnntiques

And last we need to have a HUGE platter for that very large turkey you will be having. This beautiful platter from vintagerose1234 has some really pretty graphics on it you almost don't want to put the turkey on it. 

What kind of Thanksgiving table do you set? If you go all out there are a lot of really nice vintage items to use. If you are like us it is TV trays in front of the chair! LOL! Whichever it is have fun decorating.
