DIY Cork + Pin Holiday Tree

TOOLS & MATERIALS
cork trivet
black round pushpins
hook or nail for hanging on wall
temporary picture-hanging strip (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS
An easy DIY project that you can do for the holidays and
undo on December 26. Simply line up pushpins on cork trivet
to form a tree shape, stick pins in place and hang on wall!
We were lucky to have a loop attached to our cork trivet
(perfect for wall hanging), but if yours does not have one,
a simple temporary picture-hanging strip
on the back would do the trick.
O, tannenbaum!

DIY Stitched Star Placemats

TOOLS & MATERIALS
open-weave placemats
cord or yarn (we used nylon cord from the hardware store)

needle (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS
Not much planning necessary when it comes to this project. in fact,
this project has an unplanned + imperfect look to it that we adore.
To make, simply snip a long piece of cord or yarn, double knot
the end and begin stitching a star just as you would draw it.
When finished, knot off end and move to another star.
Repeat as desired. Spot clean.

DIY Spiral Desk Organizer

TOOLS & MATERIALS
black 12-gauge craft wire
large bottle, can or other cylindrical object to wrap wire around
wire cutters

INSTRUCTIONS
We adore this simple DIY piece as an organizer for cards
or other paper goods. When used for storage, it is useful.
When empty and displayed vertically, it is art.

Step 1: Wrap wire several times around large bottle or other sturdy
cylindrical object. Repeat until desired number of coils is reached.
Step 2: Using wire cutters, snip off ends of the wire to create blunt
or rounded edges. Step 3: Carefully remove wire from bottle by gently
pulling apart the spirals. Step 4: Even up spirals for neatness. If you'd
like to further finish off the ends, you may add a bead, cap or even
a silicone-filled bead to the ends. Step 5: Add cards to keep
organizer from rolling, or display vertically until ready for use.
