Traffic Jam Weekend Link Party #303

Happy Thanksgiving! I am so glad you’re here to share with us here on Traffic Jam Weekend Link Party at the start of the holiday season. Before we get to this week’s features and the party, let me share what’s gone on on the blog over the past week.

Last week I shared a tutorial for upcycling a Dollar Tree snowman into a farmhouse Christmas JOY sign, and this week I made no sew fabric Christmas trees using the same fabric. Can you believe that Dollar Tree has this adorable farmhouse style fabric?

Christmas fabric trees: no sew, 4 in front of JOY farmhouse sign.

I made this beautiful ornament wreath from $3 worth of ornaments from Dollar Tree. It matches the decor I’ve made over the past month for my master bathroom. Hopefully in the next couple of years I’ll make enough blush, gold, and white decor to theme my living room around. You may remember these pieces that I made that match: 2′ Christmas peace sign and DIY metal tag ornaments. Mine match the wreath, but you can customize all of these pieces to match your Christmas decor.

Finally I created four versions of a free printable letter to Santa. You can print them and your children can write out their Christmas wish list.

I have a special set of those Christmas wish lists coming that are elegant and flirty for your husband and you. Make sure you don’t miss them or my other Christmas tutorials that are scheduled by entering your email address below. You’ll get an email when I add a new post.
