Cookie Cutter Artwork

Jess, from A Smith of All Trades, tells about how some pre-holiday organizing piad off:  “We were going through old cookie cutters last year to donate the ones we never use anymore, when my mom found a set that belonged to her mom. They never got used anymore, but she couldn’t part with them.”

Smart Jess took them and turned them into super cute art for her kitchen that she displays proudly at Christmas.  It’s very cute, and even reminds me of some of my own mom’s cookie cutters!

You can see how Jess made this neat project at A Smith of All Trades.

Baseball Bat Table

 Ashley from A to Being Creations has a pretty cool Christmas gift rule. All of the family gifts have to be homemade. Ashley sought out her "junk I need to do something with pile" for inspiration. She was hit with an idea for her nephews and grabbed three baseball bats from the pile.


Ashley used old PVC joint she had left over from a bathroom renovation to attach the bats and make a nightstand. To complete the look, she covered the joint with burlap and old baseballs. Ashley even scored a wooden serving tray for ten cents that was perfect for the top. This is so creative and will be an awesome addition to her nephews’ sports-themed bedroom!
