Yes, everyone on my list already has a crown. Some people even have two! Do you hear the panic in my voice? So this year, I have been very busy trying to find new things to make everyone on my list. After yesterday’s post, I kept remembering ideas I had found on Etsy. I should have included this, I should have included that…. For those of you who don’t know Etsy, take a look now. www.etsy.com (Self promotion alert: while you’re there check out MY shop on etsy www.scarlettdalila.etsy.com) I’ve decided to share a few more projects today. These patterns and DIY kits can all be found on the global marketplace known as Etsy. Same spoiler alert applies today, people: Do not continue reading if you are expecting a gift from me this holiday season.

Talk about chic. A huge step up from the ones I made as a kid. You should probably just put a kit together for the recipient unmade and let her have all the fun. Frees you up to complete the other million handmade gifts on your list. Total score. Creative and a timesaver for you. Clothes Pin Art Doll Tutorial by DollProject
I heart Pee-wee Herman. ( Don’t panic my future gift recipients…. although to be fair you are not even supposed to be reading this. I got this one for me (I’ve never been one to shy away from self-gifting!) to hang in the spot above the mantel where my now ex-husband’s picture used to be.) PopParty also has the Golden Girls in paint by number among other pop culture icons. I love them. PeeWee Herman Paint By Number Kit by PopParty
I could go on and on and on but I’ve got to get busy. Lots of projects to complete. Happy holidays and celebrate the day.
