I've used the GRATEFUL term in a lot of projects on here lately (did you grab my free GRATEFUL banner from last week here?). I'm working to instill an attitude of gratitude in our home year round...but of course fall seems to always focus on that a bit more with the Thanksgiving holiday. This Fall Hoop Art is perfect for beginners...it only has two stitches and they're both basic ones. See how I'm starting to incorporate a lil' bit of embroidery some mornings before starting the day.

Handmade Jute Christmas Ornament

This post for a handmade jute Christmas ornament contains affiliate links. I make a small portion when these links are used, at no additional cost to you.

If you're a crafter, you know it's never too early to start making your handmade Christmas ornaments. Today, I'm sharing a really sweet Handmade Jute Christmas Ornament that has a fun, vintage vibe. AND, this is a BIG month-long series that I've joined with 30 other blogging friends. There are LOADS of handmade Christmas ornament ideas for you in this post.

Handmade Jute Christmas Ornament | This vintage, farmhouse ornament is the perfect craft for your Christmas tree.
I had a hard time naming this ornament, y'all. It's technically made from upholstery webbing ribbon and felt...but that was a mouthful. Upholstery webbing is really just a bit of fancier jute ribbon, so that's what we're going with here. And you can really use any type of heavy woven ribbon here...burlap would even be cute. But, this jute upholstery webbing ribbon is so sturdy and holds up so well, that it's a great material for a handmade Christmas ornament. See the full tutorial below.

It's here! The 2018 Printable Calendar is the latest in my Premium Printables for Purchase line. It's packed with loads of seasonal watercolor florals on each and every month of the year. PLUS, I've included a FREE coordinating calendar-at-a-glance.

This gorgeous, watercolor 2018 Printable Calendar is perfect for your home or office. Also includes a free, coordinating calendar-at-a-glance printable, too!
As I created these, I kept loving each month a bit more than the one before! I just love watercolor florals. And seasonal ones are my absolute favorite. Each of the 12 months has its own subtle, watercolor theme for the time of the year it falls into. And they all coordinate beautifully together (even the bonus page!).


Or see each month's details below.

This free printable Thanksgiving banner is the perfect little addition to your fall decor. It's definitely the season to be GRATEFUL (although, I'll stop and say I'm working on being GRATEFUL all year!). 

Free Printable Thanksgiving Banner | Grab this free buffalo check GRATEFUL banner for your fall decor.
I wanted to create a little bit of buffalo check fun to match a couple of chairs in my dining room. I feel like fall is like the perfect season for buffalo check, too. So, this free printable Thanksgiving banner was born. It's got a little bit of watercolor and some simple fall color to it. Hope you enjoy it.
