Day 7 of the 12 days of Christmas

Holiday DIY / Craft
I haven't pulled out my decorations yet because I'm in the process of moving. I have some ideas for crafts that I want to try for this year that probably won't come happen until after the move.
I copied this image from a friend's facebook photos. I wanted to have it for inspiration because I love the simplicity. I would really like to do a purple and gold bow and I found some of those sprigs that have purple glitter balls. I really hate fussy wreaths so when I saw this one I thought it would be a quick and easy (and relatively inexpensive) project.
This photo came from the blog My Sweet Savannah which I HIGHLY recommend especially if you like crafts, recipes and home decor for a shabby chic / cottage / vintage look. She is probably one of the most creative bloggers that I have seen - and really she should be featured in a home and garden magazine. She came up with this jewel of an idea to take old scrabble games and make cute ornaments from it using winter phrasing. I have a small tree in my office that is undecorated at the moment and I love this idea - it also wouldn't cost me anything because I have two old scrabble games at my moms house.
