Made With Love: DIY Eco Chic Stocking Stuffers

    The countdown to Christmas begins now! The 12 days of an Eco Chic Christmas is back! The next 12 days will be dedicated to eco friendly Christmas ideas, from homemade decorations to your eco friendly holiday gift guide. Today I am sharing with you Made With Love: 5 DIY Eco Chic Stocking Stuffers.  We may live on an island, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have stockings. 1. Cookie Monster! Sugar Cookies are a must for Christmas- well at least in this household.  On Christmas Eve, my sister and I have a tradition, we have a Christmas movie marathon starting  with How the Grinch Stole Christmas, while eating sugar cookies.  For that loved one in your family or bestie who has a sweet tooth this is an easy and fun holiday gift idea. I am allergic to both milk and gluten- not fun.  However, I have found a way to  have my cookies and eat them too.  These cookies were made from scratch in a fashion… I found a sugar cookie mix at Kirks …

Glisten. Glitter. Glow.

  The countdown to Thanksgiving Day has begun! Did I mention it is my favorite holiday of all time?  I love the idea of dedicating a day to gratitude and thanks.  It’s been a rainy day, so I put on some Christmas tunes and started making some eco friendly Thanksgiving decorations. Glisten. A plate of thanksgiving.  I spray painted a plastic plate, which I picked up from the dollar aisle at Foster’s Food Fair.  I printed out my thanksgiving message which came from a Pinterest inspired project, my bestie Michelle sent me. Follow the directions for some transfer paper, with a sticky adhesive.  Voila! Glitter.   An easy way to repurpose and reuse pine cones for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, is to sprinkle some glitter on to add a little sparkle. The pine cones were placed in a glass jar, for display and then glitter was added.  After the holidays, the glitter will be easy to pour out and store for future use. Glow. I have fallen in love with LED lights, battery operated style! The …

Melted Snowman

Even though Christmas is now officially over, I would still like to share a fun and festive way to repurpose wine bottles.  I love to reuse them as chic water bottles.  For my Christmas Eve dinner party, I borrowed this idea from one of my best friends.  For tags I used business cards, and ribbon I had left over from previous Christmases.  What’s great is the tags can easily be used next Christmas. With love, xo

DIY: Eco Chic Photo Canvas

This Christmas, I am attempting to make more homemade gifts.  For your friends and family who love photos, a fun and easy project is transferring a photo onto a canvas.  After researching this on Pinterest (which has a wealth of information for DIY projects) I tried out a few different methods.  After some trial and error I finally found a method which worked for me.  For my photo transfer onto canvas, I choose one of my favorite photos of my mother and I which was taken on one of her birthdays.  Yep, the camera got me when my eyes were closed.  Nonetheless, I love this photo. What You Will Need  Canvas, photo, mod podge, paintbrush, and ribbon -which is optional- Easy Steps To Follow Step 1. Paint the canvas with mod podge Step 2. Paint the back of the photo and then carefully place the photo onto the canvas. Step 3. Add a couple of layers of mod podge over the photo.  This creates a protective seal. It will look like this.       …
