Last minute gifts

Hope everyone had a wonderful, rested weekend. I spent mine suffering from allergies, sinuses..head cold, whatever you wanna call it!LOL Still a bit under the weather today, but I'm hoping a warm cup of tea will help.
I wanted to share some last minute gift ideas with you. The first is a microwave bag of popcorn wrapped up in white paper. I used plain old computer printer paper. Then I put one glove inside of the other and put these on top of my popcorn pack. Tied with a ribbon and drew on a cute face. There you have it: a warm and toasty treat!!!

The next project is a light up snowman jar:
I had some mason jars sitting there, so I spray painted them white, drew on a face, and inserted a strand of white lights. For the hat, I painted the jar lids black and then cut some felt into a circle, I put the felt between the 2 jar lids. The light cord hangs out a bit and then I screwed the lid over that. I hope this explains it well enough. I'm still pretty fuzzy with allergy meds. But really wanted to share these two projects with you.


Where did I get these ideas you may ask? Pinterest of course!! LOL I'm addicted to that site and have found many awesome ideas and yummy recipes!

Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful Monday!

Both of these are wonderful gifts for Christmas. Hope the allergies have abated some what. We just need our weather to stay the same for about 6 days in a row.
