Where's My Hot Glue Gun?!?!

I've been crafting up a storm this holiday season.  AND LOVING IT, I might add.

The holidays are the perfect excuse for me to fire up the trusty hot glue gun (my first favorite crafting accessory, closely followed by the product I mentioned in this post).  But don't worry, I'm an EOC -- an equal opportunity crafter -- and I would never shun the likes of other great crafting materials, like spray adhesive, pipe cleaners, and of course the trusty ol' needle & thread.  Wanna see what I've been working on?

Project #1:
Fun fabric-covered stud earrings for my Etsy site.  They're posted now - click right over!

Prepalicious Fabric Earrings

Snowball Fabric Earrings

Project #2:
Converting a dollar store placemat into a fun metallic holiday pillow.  Tutorial coming!


.... and after!

Project #3:
Creating beautiful large matchboxes just begging to be kept out for display.  Another upcoming tutorial!

This project will set you back less than $1.

Striking, right?  (Sorry, couldn't help it)

Project 4:
Using Martha Stewart for some gift labeling inspiration.

My first attempt - not so perfect, but moms like that.  :)

This one's for the sister.

What have you been crafting this season?  Please send me links to any projects you may have blogged about, I'd love to see!


  1. I love the gift wrap idea using the pipe cleaners!

  2. The Martha name tags are amazing, love that idea!

  3. Love all your projects April! I'm glad that I'm not the only one addicted to my glue gun :)
