Christmas Project Ideas

Christmas Project Ideas


Hey guys! Today I will keep it short and sweet because one I am super late on posting today and two I am hoping to even be able to finish this before Sophia gets too fussy. Cheerios are keeping her busy for now, haha.

Anways, there I was on Instagram (click link to follow me) and I decided to spontaneously show a quick Christmas tour (see my 2014 Christmas tree tour here). Of course my house is far from being completed and at this point I don't even know if it will be as we lost our Christmas tree lights. There just is not enough time in the day to get everything done. 

Back to the point, I was giving this mini-tour on Instastory and I realized a lot of the pieces I am using to display our Christmas decor is a DIY and I actually have tutorials for them! So the whole point of this short and sweet post is to round up a few of my tutorials (click link for more not listed) that can help you display your Christmas decor that you can also use year round.


First up, is this really cute reclaimed holder. I originally made this piece to display my necklaces but I loved it in the dining room so much that it hasn't moved. During the year, the knobs are enough to keep it from looking to simple and every year at Christmastime we use it to display our stockings since we do not have a mantel.


This project is my favorite! During the year I have a plain black and gray bow attached to it. For Halloween, I tied small pieces of black ribbon around the antlers to look like bats. And now I have a red/gold/green bow attached with red and gold ornaments hanging from the antlers.


When I first made this Display, I had Sophia's ultrasounds showcasing and during Valentine's day I added a simple printable banner (here) that I created. Once Sophia was born, I started displaying her monthly photos but temporarily for Christmastime, I am displaying the Christmas cards we are receiving.


This was a quick tutorial I whipped up for my sister's birthday movie night I hosted. Just switch out the colors to match your Christmas decor!

For being quick, it actually is a little longer than expected, haha. I hope you enjoy these projects and find inspiration or attempt to make something using one of my tutorials! If you do be sure to tag me (@stormieariel) on social media and/or use #stormiearieltutorial

Gift Guide | Father's Day Craft Ideas

Gift Guide | Father's Day Craft Ideas


Hi guys! How was ya'lls weekend? Ours was pretty relaxed, I went for my hour massage on Saturday and boy was it AMAZING!! Definitely what this mama needed. And on Sunday Anthony's parents came to visit. 

If you were around on Friday than you might have came across my Father's Day Gift Guide; well today I am sharing a roundup of Father's Day craft ideas. I only included two crafts involving hand/foot prints because while I worked in childcare some parents really didn't appreciate another hand/foot print craft. Although I personally think, they show a child's growth throughout a single year and all the years to come and I really believe these types of crafts will be treasured so dearly when that little babe or toddler is off to college or starting a family of their own. So keep that in mind if your hesitant to do crafts involving prints and maybe slip a note stating my above statement in your own way.


I unfortunately couldn't find the original source for this sweet photo but when I ran across it on Pinterest, I fell in love. First, because the photo is so adorable and made me get a lump in my throat. Secondly, Anthony and I use to play scrabble with his dad and brother when we would go visit his family and from day to day Anthony and I play Words with Friends so I think this type of picture craft would mean so much.

Gift Guide | Teacher Appreciation

Gift Guide | Teacher Appreciation


With Teacher Appreciation Week quickly approaching, I thought I would give ya'll the inside scoop of what types of gifts teachers are sure to appreciate and remember your kiddos by. These gifts are nothing fancy and most are quick and easy plus they are inexpensive.

Click the pictures to be taken to the original posts.


Tumblers

These are so cute and easy to put together. You can also get really creative to make it more fitting for your favorite teacher. Stuff the cup with candy, pens, post-its, a gift card to the teacher's favorite store, the possibilities are really endless. To make it even more unique, get the tumbler monogrammed with the teachers name or initials and maybe get it in their favorite color!


Fresh Flowers

There is nothing more beautiful than fresh flowers especially fresh flowers in a cute and creative vase. I have received flowers in a vintage milk jug, a ladybug vase, a mason jar with a jute bow; just be creative and remember it doesn't have to be extravagant!

Tip: Add a small picture of your child to the tag.


Clip Boards

I have received three personalized clip boards and they never get old! I love the thought and care each clip board has. Whether you DIY one or order one off Etsy, the teacher is sure to love it!

Tip: If you decide on the DIY route, be sure to put a finishing/protective coat after you are finished. One of the clipboards I received didn't have a protective layer so it got a little messed up.




EOS Lip Balm

I never knew what was so special about these lip balms and probably would have never owned one if I wasn't gifted with it. I loved the cute little printable that I received with the lip balm. It really made the gift so cute and much more special than just receiving the balm itself.

Tip: Have your child sign their name to make it more personal.



If you are/were a teacher, what is/was your favorite gift to receive? What made it memorable?
