How To: New Year’s Eve “Resolution Tree”

December 30th, 2011 | by Bonnie Getchell

When I saw this Thanksgiving post from Dana at Make Them Wonder, I completely fell in love with her Thanksgiving tree. In the post, she explains that she created a tree for guests to hang what they are thankful for on cute little leaves that she cut out of paper. Her tree is so simple, yet beautiful-- and would be an amazing conversation piece. I decided that I would use Dana's idea and tweak it a little bit to become a New Year's Eve goal tree! I also made it more eco-friendly by using old newspaper instead of new paper. In addition to the New Year's Eve Banner I made yesterday, your New Year's Eve party will be off to a great start!


How-to: Newspaper Art

November 18th, 2011 | by Bonnie Getchell

I have a habit of hoarding things like shoe boxes, newspapers, scrap paper, etc., because I know they can be recycled into a project. An incredible blog called Spunky Junk shared this project on how to use shoe box lids as wall art. Shoe box lids are less expensive than canvas and it's a great way to recycle! So, I took my shoe box lid, newspaper, and scrap paper and combined it into my own personal wall art!
