It’s not too late to get crafty for the holidays!

Making this card wreath is easy! To create one like this, all you need is: a quilting hoop (this one is 18″ across), wooden clothespins, decorative ribbon, and hot glue.

I saw this cute idea on Martha Stewart’s website some time ago and wanted to create one of my own, so I went out to my local craft store and got busy!

Start by gluing the clothespins on in an alternate order so some cards can be displayed in the middle and some on the outside of the wreath. Next, cut the ribbon to your desired length and tie a bow to hang the wreath from.

It’s quick and easy; and it’s a great way to display your holiday cards!

example of a child's drawing...

I came across this fun website the other day, and thought I would share with you, our loyal readers!

Get this: you, or your kids, can create a drawing and this company, Carpetzz, will make a rug for you from that drawing! It sounds so fun, doesn’t it?!

This could be the perfect way to finish out a play room, child’s bathroom or bedroom. Imagine how exciting and unique it would be!
