Bust your stash to make these cute little house ornaments for your Christmas tree. Minki’s Work Table made these sweet ornaments, and I love the clever way that she used an envelope as her house pattern. Her house ornaments are made from felt, but you could really use any medium or heavy weight fabric for these. Denim or corduroy would look nice for the house, especially if you choose cheery contrasting scraps to make the doors, windows, etc.

Autie at iCandy Handmade shows you how she converted a pattern for pretty paper pinwheels into a fabric pinwheel project.

I feel like despite making sure I had everything ready for my son’s first day back, I was still scrambling that morning. In case you need a little bit of help like I did, here are some DIY organization tricks to help you and your kids get the school year on track.
Cute mobiles are such a fun way to deck out your nursery, but they can be pretty pricey. When we were doing my son’s space-themed nursery, I kept seeing mobiles in the $50-$60 range! No, thank you! Moonfrye shows you how to make a cute, simple mobile out of felt and driftwood.
