DIY It - Candy Surprise Ball Advent Calendar

Surprise balls are my new obsession. I love that I can easily create them into any shape that I want. And they just so happen to yield themselves perfectly to an advent calendar. Last week I shared how to make ornament surprise balls, and this week I'm sharing how to make them look like sweet treats! Included in each ball is a note for a holiday themed activity and a little special treat that goes along with the activity. My kids are going to flip when December 1st hits and they get to start opening these!

DIY It - Ombré Flower Vases

This post is sponsored by Walmart. All ideas, opinions, and styling are my own. Thank you so much for supporting the brands that keep the crafts coming!

When my friends at Walmart reached out about working with their amazing fresh everyday floral bouquets, I was ecstatic! Not everyday do you have someone wanting to send you bouquets of flowers! I love fresh flowers, but usually don't splurge for them so that I can save that money for other things. But what I love about the Walmart everyday bouquets are that not only are they a great value, but they can easily be split up to create several arrangements that can be spread all over your home. So you really only need one to fill your whole home with floral beauty! But all those arrangements means that you will need vases. Not to worry, I am going to share my super budget friendly way to make your own ombré flower vases so that you can put a flower arrangement in every room. Or gift them to friends. It is the season of giving after all!

Paint It - Memphis Design Ornaments

You all loved the Memphis design pumpkins I painted for Halloween, so of course I had to do a Christmas version! The black and white graphic prints of iconic Memphis design worked so well with Halloween, but I didn't think it would translate that well into my holiday color palate. So I softened up the color palate a bit and swapped the black for navy and, well, they turned out just amazing!

Decorate It - Large Colorful Reindeer Balloons

I usually am not one to think of balloons when it comes to the holidays, but after last years balloon garland tree, I now want to incorporate them into every holiday party. To give the balloons a little extra holiday flair, I turned to my trusty vinyl cutter and created the cutest large colorful reindeer balloons ever! These cam together super easily, so much so that I didn't end up taking any process photos! But no fear, I am going to walk you through the tutorial.
