Last-Minute Decorating Ideas! (Day #9)

December 13th, 2010

Anyone out there need a last-minute, but shoe-string-worthy gift? We’ve got a few ideas to share that are yours for FREE over at!

How about a holiday star suitable for displaying a festive sprig of pines or berries, or doubling as a keeper of your holiday cards. It works up so quickly, utilizes some out-of-date jeans, and is minimal in cost. Keep it for yourself, or give it away without breaking the bank!

Begin a new tradition in your home!  The Santa Claus Pillowcase was designed by the elves to fit a travel sized pillow—a special pillow you bring out just once a year. It has a pocket designed especially for your child’s letter to Santa Claus. After she falls asleep, Santa will come to retrieve the letter. Upon wakening, she’ll find that Santa was there, and has left her a special message in return!

With the holidays being such a busy time, we hope that you’ll find a moment for yourself to create this cheery and festive door ornament. Either hand stitch the design or download the machine embroidery design for free from our sister site, It’s sure to put you in the holiday spirit, and since it whips up so quickly and is small in size (approximately 6″x6″ when complete), you’ll have plenty of time to create more for neighbors and friends!
