Ruffle Christmas Gift Tag

We are a plaid/flannel family. I wear and love it. Micah’s whole wardrobe is mostly comprised of it and now our boys are starting to love it, too! So when I saw that Target was all about the plaid this year I was thrilled! They really brought it home with plaid tissue paper. Yes, tissue paper like the stuff you put in gift bags. Of course just putting some in a gift bag is fab but I wanted to go for divine..

Grab your sewing machine and let's make some Christmas Gift Tags!

Pardon me while I toot my own horn…toot! Toot! But these are Christmas tag perfection!

NOEL Christmas Pillow Set

I love Christmas Carols and have been known to sneak listen to them even before Halloween {shhh…don’t tell!} so when I was invited to join this group of AUH-MAZING bloggers in the challenge of creating a Holiday Song Inspired Project, I was thrilled! Let me show you how I created my NOEL Christmas Pillow Set!

To start you’ll need 2 plain pillow covers.

I sewed mine out of a drop cloth but you could easily purchase a plain cover at most stores that sell home décor. I put a plastic grocery sack inside of each of my covers to keep the paint from bleeding through to the back.

Next, I designed my NOEL Christmas Pillow Set in my Cricut Design Space. {Font BEBAS NEUE & Crown in Cake Basics Collection}

Then I used my Cricut Explore to cut out a vinyl stencil.

I used transfer tape to place my stencil onto my pillow covers.

Ready for paint!

I used a stencil brush and some Martha Stewart craft paint {I love that you can use this stuff on anything!} in both Titanium and Green Gold. I think I may layer another darker shade of gold on top of this green gold to get a more bold gold. I’ll keep ya posted! {Follow me on Instagram and Facebook to catch the update!}

While the paint was still wet, I gently peeled up stencil.

Once the paint was dry I popped them onto their pillows and they were ready to go! I love my new NOEL Christmas Pillow Set!
