Glittered Arrows

It's time to deck the halls with boughs of holly! Fa la la la la, la la la la!

I'm (very) excited to share my first Holiday video with you for the 2015 Christmas season.



What's really great about this tutorial is it isn't specifically "Holiday". These Glittered arrows would be great anytime of year in many different ways.  I think they would be great as a banner or garland, they would look fantastic framed, or you can use them as I am in this video: as ornaments and gift tags.


Whatever you choose to do with your arrows, I hope you have a great time making them, and don't forget to show me what you do with them! Hashtag your pics with #MakeherCreativeLiving (my brand name), or @LizMathews83.
 






As promised, here is a download-able sheet with lots of arrow points and tails ready to be cut and assembled :)

Fall Glitter Tree DIY



I've posted what will be the last of my Fall themed videos for the season! The tutorial for Fall Glitter Trees is up on my YouTube channel now.

This was by far my favorite project of the season and I have been enjoying the finished project for days. In fact, I love it so much I may recreate it for other rooms! It's quite a statement and I love the delicacy of the leaves and the sparkle of the glitter.

If you're interested in recreating my version of this tree you may want to stop by my etsy store where you can buy a package of the maple and oak leaves I've used in this project.  Moving forward I'll be offering components for the projects whenever I can in my store and hope it helps sourcing items a little less daunting. 

Happy Crafting!

Epic Vintage Giveaway



I'm hosting an EPIC VINTAGE GIVEAWAY for the entire MONTH OF NOVEMBER! That's right- 30 awesome vintage pieces are included in this treasure trove that will be mailed to one of my followers on December 1st. 

Each day I'll post a few photos of the item added to the haul on one of my social media pages (fb, ig, here on my blog) and you can enter ONE time each day by answering the question I pose in the product description.

Then, at the end of the month I'll throw an extra 10 chances in the pot for anyone who is following my You Tube Channel :). 

A name will be selected on December 1st and I'll ship any domestic winner their treasure box at my expense. 

I hope you're as excited as I am! I love giveaways and hosting them is just as fun!  Do you remember when I did this in 2011? Check out what that haul ended up looking like:

Good luck to everyone! And PS- the first item is already posted- check my IG (and hit "follow" while you're there) to make it easy to find each day. LizMathews83, or link on the sidebar :)
