I’m kicking of a new series: Handmade Holidays to share some crafty ideas for making DIY presents this year.
First up, some festive bottle stoppers! I bought plain, unfinished bottle corks in the kitchen section at Target and colored in the stopper with a silver metallic Sharpie, followed by a light brush of glue and matching silver glitter. Once they dried all you need is a drop of super glue to hold an ornament in place on top of the stopper! These took under an hour to make, and cost less than $10 to make the whole set — I think they’d look great tied to a bottle of wine for a hostess gift during the holidays!
I am ready and willing for Fall to arrive — and on the top of my Fall wish list are tassel loafers. I found five fun pairs, all for under $50, plus a bonus pair from the Gap that are missing the tassels, but certainly not the style. Confession: I’ve already scooped up the pair from Target, and the polka dot version from the Gap — I probably need one of the pink versions next, right?
