DIY Birch Wood Christmas Banner - Blog Hop

You all know I have an obsession with the birch wood from Michaels. I have done several craft projects, and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. Today I am sharing another one with you.

You can buy the wood already cut into slices at Micheals, but it's $2.99 each. I just bought the log and had my husband cut it for me and drill holes in them.

I painted the letters the exact same way I painted the pumpkins I did a while back. So check that post to see how I did that. 

I just strung them on some twine and hung them up. I added some cute ribbon on each end just to add a little color.

Are you loving all the rustic Christmas things this year like me?

This week I am teaming up with some of my favorite Savvy Sassy Moms to bring you great DIY Christmas gifts! These scout moms have been busy at work making up the most adorable gift ideas and they are here to share them with you.

Christmas Gift Ideas for Men

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GiftingAMemory #CollectiveBias

Men can be hard to shop for in my opinion. Especially if it's not your Husband or Boy Friend. I have a hard time shopping for my Brother. I don't know what he likes or would want. When I was at Wal-Mart I decided to pick up a cologne gift set and a few other items. Everyone loves cologne or perfume. I feel like it's an easy gift that will work for anyone on your list this year. 

I don't know about you, but certain smells bring back lots of memories from past events. When I was a teenager one Christmas I got the Brittany Spears perfume so everytime I smell that it brings back some many good memories. Memories of that Christmas and memories of when I wore it.  I love being remind of good times in my life. 

I hope that my idea of gifting cologne to my brother this year  he will have those same experiences. I think sometimes we buy mindless gifts just so that we have something to give. I know I am guilty of doing this. But this year I have been really trying to think about what that person on my list really would like or want. Thinking about getting something that will last longer than just one day or a week. Something good quality that will last a while. Cologne or perfume will do just that. 

I put together a little gift basket with the cologne set, a flannel shirt, and his favorite jerky. I think he will love it. 

Check your local Wal-Mart for lots of other scents and sets. What's your favorite scent?

Stress Free Christmas Cards-

My favorite thing about Christmas is Christmas cards. I love getting them and I love putting together the perfect one of my family. This year has been crazy, and I just don't have the time to spend hours designing a card and address labels.  So, I ordered mine through Minted and I absolutely love how they turned out.

Minted offers 100s of beautiful designs. I did have a hard time choosing which one I wanted. When you choose a card you are given more options to customize them. Which I love. You can change the colors, the text, and my favorite the shape of the card.

I choose to get the ornate design. 

You can choose to have pictures printed on front and back or you can have a matching all over design on the back. 

 I love how the card fits perfectly in the envelopes. All the little details made ordering them online so worth it.

I picked the red and white striped envelope liner. I think that it makes such a statement. 

Lastly, I love the option to get these wrap-around return address labels. I also got all my addresses printed on the envelopes. I didn't have to worry about addressing them and they look so uniform and nice. I added the little washi for a little something extra.

I absolutely love teaming up with I truly love their products. You can usually find a coupon code too so look before you purchase.

 Disclosure: I received  these products for review as part of the Savvy Sassy Moms Product Scouts program. All opinions are my own. If I do not truly love something I will not post about it.
