A Re-Purposed Christmas

There's so many wonderful things about Christmas, but I have to say that this season is a great reason to let your creativity take off!

My favorite thing to do is to reuse things we have, like those peanut butter jars and fill them with home baked cookies to give as gifts. I hot glued the material and ribbon on the top and glued on this adorable label I downloaded from a blog I found last year (but unfortunately don't remember what blog it was!)

One of my friends is starting a new business and reusing materials to make these gorgeous head ties.

I love these 'Scrabble coasters' I pinned on Pinterest.
Here's another Pinterest idea that I copied for our youngest's teacher.
Hope you're inspired to make your gift-giving efforts special this year! Have a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and safe New Year!


  1. I love the scrabble tile place mat so clever :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  2. I'm a words with friends/scrabble addict so I'm loving the scrabble coaster. what's your friend's business name. I'd love to check out her headbands. They're adorable.

  3. Gena, she doesn't have a website yet...I hope to be helping her with that in the near future, then I'll let you know!

  4. I love the cookie jar, what a great idea.
