Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Upcycle Those Christmas Gifts

I know Christmas is getting close, but there is still time for a few of those last minute gift items. Why not do a little bit something different this time and give an upcycled gift to that special person. Let's jump on over to Etsy and see what we can find. 

Do you know someone who likes to grow their own herbs? If so, PottingShedCreations has this really neat idea of recycling wine bottles. 

Need something for the "computer geek" of yours? Take a look at this hard drive clock from pixelthis! I thought man what a different idea. LOL!

How about a recycled pair of corduroy pants. I know you have that person that needs a new hobo bag. BagsByMiller has this one available.

And who couldn't use another pair of mittens. Especially if that person lives in the north country like I do. Always have to have my mittens on. SewingAtTen made these out of an old wool sweater. Pretty good idea.  

Lot of nice recycled and upcycled gifts available. 

Happy shopping!

Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: Mason Jar Crafts

I know that decorating with Mason Jars are all the rage now or at least it seems so. Even though it wasn't that long ago I was still using them to can veggies. LOL! So I went on the hunt to get some ideas for you that we can use Mason Jars to decorate for Christmas. 

So I found this blog at Styletic.com that has several different ideas of how to use Mason Jars for Christmas decorating. There are links to several sites that gives you instructions on how to do the DIY project so why not check some of them out. There is still lots of time left to add these to your decorating. :)

Have fun decorating!
