Gift Tags

You can never have enough gift tags around the holidays! These were pretty straightforward with some cute stamps that were from Honolulu, Hawaii. Santa and the shaka, relaxing on the beach after a busy holiday season. Colored in Copic markers and the tags were recycled ribbon from Pier1.

Sand Dollar Ornament

I am working on a mini Christmas tree for my bathroom with a beach theme and have been having the hardest time finding suitable ornaments to go on it. Guess I have to make them myself! I found some small sand dollars at Hobby Lobby and made a rosette made from a map page. Added gold glitter to edges and some cording and it's ready to hang.

Darth Vader Tree

Inspired by the numerous Darth Vader Christmas trees that I have seen on Pinterest. Thanks for the inspiration/idea to whomever thought of this first! We have been collecting Hallmark Star Wars ornaments since 1997, usually purchasing a couple a year, so this collection has been a while in the making and always brings us joy. The mask was Billy's when he was younger and the buttons and voices still work! I used a black cape from our Halloween costume stash and got a yard and a half of matching black satiny fabric from Joann's to continue the cape effect and cover the table, as a tree skirt. May the Force Be With You!
