DiY Liquid Hand Soap {Handmade Holidays}

Image

This year I am beyond thrilled to introduce you to a revamped series here at LWSL called Handmade Holidays!  In past years I have shared my own holiday gift ideas, but this year I thought it would be fun to get some inspiration elsewhere.  I asked eight of my favorite up-and-coming bloggers to share a [...]

DiY Fabric Covered Tray

Image

For the past month or so I've been working on a little office project that I can't wait to share with you.  I've never had my own work space before and it has been so fun to create a room that is all my own.  Of course, since it is not quite finished yet, you'll [...]

DiY American Girl Doll Bed {and Armoire}, Part 2

Image

I've been avoiding this post for weeks now, partially because it was Christmas and things got crazy, but mostly because this "DiY tutorial" is going to be SO LAME that I'm afraid you'll all start throwing things at me through the computer screen. It's not that it turned out poorly; the end result turned was [...]

Easy-to-Sew Pajama Pants

Image

One of our very favorite Christmas traditions is staying in our pajamas all day on Christmas Day--even right through Christmas dinner.  While we don't usually get new ones every year, it has been a few years since our last set, so I decided that this year, in the spirit of our handmade holiday, I would [...]

Vintage Freezer Paper Bleach T-Shirts

Image

It is relatively easy to find handmade gift ideas for women and kids, but guys and teenagers are a different story altogether.  Every Christmas I send a small gift to each of my 13 nieces and nephews.  (I wrote about this tradition last year when my nephew sent me this touching thank you letter.) While [...]

DIY Felt Snowball Ornament

Image

These little felt snowballs are super fun to make.  I used my sewing machine to do most of the sewing, but if you don't own one you could probably do the whole thing by hand with only slightly more effort.   These ornaments look beautiful hanging on the tree, but they make a great gift [...]

Homemade Rainbow Sparkle Playdoh

Image

 I wanted to come up with a small gift for the kids in my Sunday School class as well as a few other kiddos on my list, and I thought little rainbow packs of homemade playdoh would be really fun.   The girls and I always enjoy making it but we usually just stick to [...]

DiY Chalkboard Coaster Set

Image

Can you tell we have been feeling a little crafty around here lately?  The girls and I have been working on so many projects that I hardly know where to start, but I figured I better get going on sharing some of our gift ideas so that y'all can get started on them too! These [...]

DiY American Girl Doll Bed, Part 1

Image

 Can you keep a secret?  I'm counting on the fact that my daughter Maggie doesn't read this blog, but I am so excited about her gift from Santa this year that I think I might explode if I try to keep it all bottled up.  So shhhhhhhhhhhh! Every family "does" Santa a little differently which [...]

Felt “Paper” Chain Garland {DiY}

Image

I think I might have a slight felt problem.  I love it almost as much as I love ModPodge, and so far this year it has played a starring role in many a Christmas decoration.  But seriously folks, what's not to love?  It is super cheap (only $0.20 a sheet when it goes on sale), [...]

30 Minute Felt Appliquéd Burlap Pillow {DiY}

Image

 Much to Husband's chagrin, I insist on filling our sofas with pretty throw pillows.  And despite how many times a day I am forced to rearrange, re-fluff, and pick them up off the floor, I refuse to give in.  I love them.  Without them, the room just doesn't feel finished. I wanted some pretty new [...]

I have been wanting to make an [...]
