Sequins, Ornaments & Coffee. I am not sure which one I love more which is why I usually combine the three together. It would be nice if coffee cream came in some sorta glitter form that dissolved slowly while sipping away. I mean I somehow find glitter and sequins hibernating in all corners of my house and studio so I just dust around them. Not really but that gives me a few ideas. Come see how I glittered candle jars, totally perfect for that last minute Christmas present.

*Sequined floors (I am sure resin would love to live on top of that)… I literally googled this and found NOTHING. That my dear is pretty disappointing. Which means something drastic needs to happen ASAP. Stay tuned.

*Sequined walls (Maybe just one accent wall, right?) I did find this tutorial which makes me feel super giddy inside. This could work.

You get the hint. Sequins for life. I recently did a post for I Love to Create and I felt my inner Liberace come out. I did have the new Lorde soundtrack playing so I am not sure if I am living in two different worlds but either way it worked. Click on the link at the bottom to get to the full tutorial.
glitter ornaments These are also the perfect gift for that ornament exchange party you will are going to! What? You have no idea what this means? Get a group together and everyone make a homemade ornament then everyone gets a pretty freaking cool homemade gift. You will have two choices at that point to actually put it up on your tree or “re-gift” it, haha!   sequin ornaments

cake toppers
It’s all about DIY today and boy have I got some fun cake toppers for you.

Look, I like balls. I like them so much that I made my own version of “Cake Ball’s.” I know you are probably shaking your head right about now. If you are not I will for you. 

The other night I was sitting in my studio thinking of cute things to add to the top of a cake. The first things that came to my mind was BALLS.

Let’s get started.

YOUWILLNEED Wooden Sticks | Small Christmas Ornaments | Brushes | Paint | Glue Gun | Bakers Twine

The first thing you will do is paint the paint sticks white. I am using a normal crafting brush for this step.

Next you will get this snazzy little Martha Stewart paint brush. It’s like two brushes in one!

black and white sticks

I grabbed these “balls” last year at Tar-Jay and they are perfect. P.S. Make sure you take the tip off of the ornament. Paint that sucker all black. I had to put about 3 coats on them before I was happy.

This is how they will turn out. I am actually really shocked at how shiny they became after they were completely dry.

When they are done I put a little dab of hot glue on the tip of wooden stick and stuck it inside the ornament. Just hold it for a second till it’s dry.

Put a little hot glue around the tip of ornament then wrap twine around it.


balloon toppers I am so happy with the way they turned out! I know that I did them black but you could do them pink, purple or just leave them the color of the ornament.

Another idea is to do different size ornaments.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Make sure to have fun with your balls… ending




If you are looking for a easy way to decorate for Valentines day then look no further because I have an affordable tutorial for you using pink Christmas ornaments. I think  it’s hard to decorate for each holiday for the simple fact that it can get pretty expensive. Remember supermarket sweep? I used to love that show. When I am in the craft store just browsing I always go strait to the sale isles. Why? Because there is no way I will spend the full price on things when I will end up change the whole appearance anyway. So back to supermarket sweep, I always pretend I am on that show and will give myself 10 minutes in those isles, NO matter how many isles there are. Being crafty sometimes means thinking on your toes and usually you think of how you can use an item within the first 5 seconds of looking at it. Trust that first thought. It’s usually the best one.

I love after Christmas sales, especially when things are 80% off. I try to not go until it’s that low. I figure if something good is already gone I will never know, haha. Plus I  tell myself that whatever is left it’s up to me to use it in another creative way. That’s exactly what I did with the ornaments in this craft. The box was originally 5.00 and I paid .50 for them. I think that is a good deal! I bought big ones and small ones. You never know when you will need extra balls.
(insert quirky smirk and head shaking)


Isn’t this wreath so cute!


*Christmas Balls
*Martha Stewart Designer Paper Pad
*Circle Punch
*Martha Stewart Stickers

You can order all the items above from one spot, just click on the link.


Are you swooning over everything I used? I love anything glittery and pink, it always puts me in a fabu-loso mood.


K, the first thing you will do is get a piece of paper and draw out a heart or print one. You can click HERE to download the one I used. Glue each one together. Wait till the glue is dry before you move on to the next spot.


I bought these paper doilies from Freds in the birthday party isle. For a pack of 24 it was $1.00. Booyah, you know I grabbed all 45. Fold a doily like an accordion then set to the side.


Punch out a circle. I swear when you do one you will want to keep on, it’s addicting.


Now is the time you will glue your paper doily onto your wreath, wherever you want to put it. Add your punch out in the middle of doily.


I wrapped a little twine around my punch out then placed a cute cupcake sticker in the middle.


So it’s that simple. What I like the most about this is I can keep a fun pink heart up all year round. I hope you enjoyed learning how to make a heart wreath out of ornaments. What is your favorite holiday to decorate for? I’d love to know, let me know in the comment section.

Happy {Happy} hump day Jaderbugs! I absolutely could not wait to share this tutorial with you. I know everyone is scrambling around getting things prepared just perfectly for Christmas and if you are like me then you like to give homemade gifts. Boy {or girl} do I have the easiest homemade ornament you could ever make today. See below, these cutsie patootsie little snowmen {or women} with their furry hats on, bedazzled ear muffs and a happy smile? Wait, there is not smile…. BUT, I know they are smiling because wouldn’t you if you looked this cute..

Let’s get started.


*Glass Ornaments
*Glue Gun
*Feather Boa

The first thing you will do is put a lil hot glue on the top of the ornament like I did below.

Carefully start wrapping your feather boa around the ornament. You can go as low or as high as you can with feather boa. This is meant to look like furry little hat.
{Surely not the kind of hat you would wear in Louisiana at this time, ahah}

You can see the eyes are just some little jewelry beads. The good thing is you can decorate your eyes in any way! You can put any bead, jewel or just draw it on. Wait did I mention paint? Yeah, you can paint too… (saying that with my shoulders back 🙂
I used large inexpensive jewels for the ears, this will represent the “ear muffs.”

 It’s really that simple! How you think someone will feel getting this baby in a cute little box for Christmas!!!
