The Best Ugly Sweater Party

December 18, 2013
Every year our favorite part of Christmas is getting our friends together for our anual Ugly Sweater party! And this year I think was my favorite. I (Sara) have been REALLY into planning parties, this year topping off as some of the best. So I was really excited about all the details of this party. 
Enjoy a look at the party!

 12 Days of Christmas DIY | Day 9 >>>

Day 9 of our 12 days of Christmas DIY is a wooden deer door plaque.
 
If you can't tell, we are a little obsessed with deer around here, especially at Christmas time! So when we saw this deep plaque at Michael's for cheap we swooped it right up!
First we painted the antlers in a brilliant gold color and of course added some gold glitter too.
Next we stained the bottom half.
Then we drew on a chalk #2, since it would be going on our front door.
Since the plaque already had twine attached, we just tied it onto our front door wreath and hung it on the door! A simple project that adds a little more personality to our front porch.

12 Days of Christmas DIY | Day 8 >>>

You can do this project with pieces from a palette or do like we did and gather up some scrap wood that was lying around our parent's garages of various lengths and widths. Make sure you have one piece that is tall and will be the trunk of the tree.
Next lay out the pieces in the form of a tree. Make sure everything is straight and even on both sides.
Then secure the various pieces together using a hammer and nails.
We wanted to make this the focal point of our front porch display this year, so we added a star, some branches and pinecones from our evergreen tree and a few other rustic Christmas items and ta-da! We have a great unique display for the season!

12 Days of Christmas DIY | Day 7 >>>

December 2, 2013
Day 7 of our 12 days of Christmas DIY is a glitter CHRISTMAS banner.

 
We bought some cheap (they were $1 each at our craft store) chip board letters and used
 some glitter and then glued some twine on the back for a easy and fun banner.

We first tried to use this glitter "paint" first. But the coverage for this project was too light.



And now we have a nice pop of christmas in our bathroom.
