Homemade Christmas Gifts

Welcome to our Homemade Christmas Gifts Holiday Blog Hop.

Holiday Blog Hop

Handmade Christmas gifts with buttons

We have some great holiday ideas using Buttons Galore and More Buttons and May Arts Ribbon. Hop with us to see homemade Christmas gifts such as, ornaments, decorating ideas and more!

If you are here for the regularly scheduled project from Laura Kelly, do not fear her project is still featured here.

From Laura:
How adorable is this rock? It is not any ordinary rock. It is a special holiday hand-painted and button embellished rock that we use to hold the door open.  It is a rock with a message and a purpose.

RockPainting homemade Christmas gifts RockFinal

I hand painted the tree on the big heavy rock with Americana paints by Deco-Art.  I love these paints because they are thick enough that when I paint on a rough surface with a slant they don’t run.  When it was dry, I used Glue Dots to add the buttons (Radical Red from my Laura Kelly collection with Buttons Galore).  Then I used a Sharpie marker and added a message to the back.

These rocks would be adorable in all sizes and shapes as door holders and spreaders of Christmas spirit.  I plan to paint a bunch of little ones with messages to hand out over the next few weeks at the Starbucks drive through and the bank and to people I meet while out on my daily adventures.  These are the messages I plan to use: Spread Cheer, Joy to the World, Follow the Star, Christmas is Love.

    This is wonderful. My kids love to do anything crafty. We all love to use buttons. I use them in my crocheting, plastic canvas projects and in my paper crafting. They are so versatile. Thanks for sharing. :)

    Hadn’t thought about putting a Christmas tree on a rock. If it works for everything else – why not a Christmas tree. Clever idea.
