Happy Holidays everyone! Going to a Christmas party tonight or have a New Year's gathering coming up? Just wanted to share two really easy last minute gift ideas I made for Country Living -- both would make great hostess gifts. The crafts were in the December issue, and the instructions for how to make them are on Country Living's website. Check 'em out:
Transform ordinary glass votives into something special by covering them with humble upholstery webbing. I got the votives for about a dollar a piece at Pier One. The webbing was only 80-cents a yard! For more details on how to cover them, check out the online instructions.

These sweet little photo pillows make a great personalized gift. I just scanned the photos onto printable fabric sheets, then turned them into pillows. Visit Country Living's website for complete instructions.
P.S. I love the vintagey photo of the two girls. The picture is of my next door neighbor and dear friend, Beth, and her sister Cheryl.
