Yesterday, I told you about my holiday crafting plans… guess I need to get the supplies before I can get started, huh?
Tomorrow is Cyber Monday, and it’s a great time to go shopping for crafting supplies because many of your favorite online shops are offering special deals! Consumer Crafts.com is offering 30% off your entire purchase, plus free shipping this Monday! Score!
So, let’s plan my shopping list, shall we?
Felt Christmas Ornaments
I’m planning on making a set of felt Christmas ornaments using this tutorial from Bugs and Fishes:
Aren’t they lovely?
I’ve never really worked with felt in a serious way before… so I don’t have a felt stash! (*gasp*)
But, I’ll need lots of different colors for this project, so I’m happy that I discovered the felt scrap pack:
This way, I’ll get lots of felt colors in one pack!
I’ll also need a skinny grograin ribbon and embroidery thread.
Rose Hair Barrettes
I’m making a set of rose hair barrettes using this tutorial from Purl Bee.
The barrettes use snap on hair clips as their base:
The clips are then are covered with a felt cover and rose. I’m glad I found a source for the hair clips… my local craft stores don’t carry them!
I don’t know about you… but I don’t like buying wrapping paper. A lot of the paper in the stores looks sorta… well, cheap.
Fortunately, making your own wrapping paper is easy! Just take some brown paper (I have a roll of kraft paper, but you can use brown paper bags) and stamp holiday designs on it! A nice Christmas-y color of ink will ensure it looks fabulous!
I haven’t picked my design yet, but I’m checking out this pinterest board for inspiration… so many great ideas!
