Homemade Christmas gifts

I did a few different projects this week for friends/coworkers for Christmas.  Here are the pics of them.  Enjoy!

Coasters I made with tissue paper!

Found an old frame from thrift store and painted, put pulls on the ends and painted the glass with chalkboard paint.  I'm addicted to chalkboard paint!!!!

YUM! Found recipe on pinterest.  It's small pretzels, rolos (I bought the mini ones so you don't have to peel all the foil off.  Put in oven at 350 degrees for 4 minutes.  You can put m&ms on top!  :)

I also made homemade lip gloss!  I found that recipe as well on Pinterest.  Beeswax, coconut oil and peppermint essential oil!  Easy and fun to make!

I'm back!

So 3 months later and I'm back to crafting.  I was super busy with teaching during the day and going to night school for my pre-reqs in nursing.  Good news....I got in to the accelerated nursing program here so I'm excited about that!  So I will be crafting the night away until June!  :)  Here are a couple things I did this weekend for Christmas.  I will be making Christmas gifts throughout the week so I will put some pics up next weekend. 
Enjoy your week!  See you soon!
I used some tissue paper I bought a couple years ago and mod podged them onto Home Depot tiles then sprayed with protective enamel.

glued dollar tree candle holders and bowl/plate onto them.  Then spray painted (the plastic Krylon spray paint is really good and quick drying)

Made some Christmas cards for friends and family.  :)
