DIY Little Surprise Vials

One of my favorite purchases from Pick Your Plum  is a set of medium and large vials!  I just loves how magical they seemed. The perfect container to put something small and special in.

Well, the beautiful vials sat in the closet for months while I tried to come up with something to do with them.
Cute little surprise vials from bumblebreeblog.  #vials are from #pickyourplum. Perfect and easy to make.

When walking through a cute boutique in NorCal I saw a fun little vial with  strings and and beads hanging from the cork.  I picked it up and saw the price: $22!  I couldn’t believe it.  I knew that I could make something  just as cute for a lot less.  So that’s what I did.

My first step was to push a needle with thread through the bottom of the cork to the top.  I had to use the pliers to pull the needle out  after it got half the way through but it was surprisingly easy.  I then created the hanging items.  I thought the little heart and snow man would be super sweet.  The heart was from a little punch and the snowman came from the Lawn Fawn Winter Gifts set, it was the perfect size to fit into the vial.  🙂  I then glued the items to the bottom of the thread and placed them into the vial so that I could get the thread at the perfect length.  I then tied a knot at the top of the cork and cut it.  I thought that the snowman needed some glittery snow.

So easy and fun.  A perfect gift for friends and family and so easy to do.

Peace, Love and Joy Christmas Card

Happy Fall!

Ok, so I know that Christmas is still very far away, but I want to get a jump on making Christmas card this year.  Lawn Fawn has some great sets that they just released that I knew would make a great card.  I wanted this card to really free like all the best things of Christmas are in one place.  I used the Into the Woods set for the deer (Lawn Fawn also announced today that they have created lawn cuts for the Into the Woods set!), the santa hat comes from the Hats Off to You set, the words and trees are from Peace Joy Love and the tag is from the Winter Gifts set.
