A Very Repurposed DIY Christmas....Part Two





I know, I know friends...this post is VERY late. Blogging about Christmas in JANUARY?? Seriously?


I apologize. 



I took a much needed vacay. I celebrated my 37th birthday on the beach. 


Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic.




It.  Was.  Phenomenal.
And VERY much needed.


But, back to the real world....



Since I gave out the other DIY gifts that I made for my friends AFTER New Years, I had to post on those gifts quite late.



For 2 of my besties, I gave some of my children's blocks that I had repurposed.


I received these blocks for free from a daycare that was getting rid of them. 


Omigoodness, my boys are SO small here!!





Maybe I shouldn't advertise that I got them for free, since my girlies may read this... ;)



Anyhoo, similar to the picture that I made for my sister with the words of her 3 favourite things, 



I did the same for them.




Here was my process:





painting the wood




adding the wording










Hopefully, they loved them. 



I also gave them some Christmas wall decor that was handmade that I purchased. I fell in love with the detailing, and maybe I will take on something like them for next year??


Maybe if I start now.... ;)



Here are my purchased handmade items:






I love that you could use repurposed wood pieces and scrap pieces of fabric to make these.Add some twigs and some paint, and voila! Beautiful handmade wall decor.



Although I'm late, I really do hope that you all had a very blessed holiday season and are looking forward to this new year with as much enthusiasm and optimism as I am.




Peace, friends.
