Mini Elf Hats


Holiday Head Accessories

As I was absentmindedly scrolling through Pinterest last weekend, I spotted an adorable mini Santa hat on a headband.

I thought it would be fun to make mini holiday hats for our family (at least for the ladies) this Christmas. In less than half an hour, I had whipped up my own version with materials I had on hand.

I used punchy red paper and bold blue pom poms. Since these mini hats aren’t red and white, they’re not exactly Santa hats… more like elf hats.

Read on for more pictures & a link to the tutorial.

The Secret Is Out

Our lab (work) has an annual Secret Santa gift exchange. The lab is mostly girls, but probability was not working in my favor, and I drew a guy’s name.

I had NO IDEA what to buy a guy. Then I remembered I pinned {here} a cute gumball jar by Crafty Soccer Mom featured at Bacon Time. It was very cleverly repurposed from a terracotta planter.

What would we all do without Pinterest?

I ended up seeing a bunch of tutorials for terracotta pot gumball jars. Read on for yet another one!
