Personalized Gifting!

Hello y’all! For those of you who don’t already know, I’m also a Scentsy consultant!  Today I’m sharing a quick DIY using a Scentsy warmer called “Charmer.”  I needed a gift last Christmas for someone who loves flip flops.  I couldn’t think of what to get her, knowing that she is gifted a lot of flip flop stuff and this idea popped into my head!  I found someone on Etsy that makes flip flop decals.  Once I completed the flip flop warmer, I really wanted one myself!  I ordered my monogram from the same Etsy shop and made my own!  They both turned out really pretty!  This is a great idea if you’re looking for something personalize this holiday season!!!

Happy Fall Y’all!!!

Fall is one of my favorite seasons!  Yesterday I gave you a peek into my living room decor and today I thought it would be fun to show you my fall decorations!  I typically update decorations from season to season.  I’m really getting excited for Christmas and I don’t think I can wait much longer to decorate my house!  I had to get these photos taken asap! 
I bargain shop for seasonal decor.  Above you’ll notice two votive candle holders, I purchased those from the dollar store and I use battery operated tea lights in them.  A few pieces were purchased from the dollar buys section in Target and the others were gifts.
I always go to Michael’s or Kirkland’s, especially at the end of the season!  I find things on sale and save them for the next season!  It helps save me a lot of money and allows my seasonal decorations to build up slowly each year.
My aunt gives me throw blankets as gifts and they always work perfect to add a festive feel to my living room!  A cozy kitty also makes for great decor too! haha!
Pumpkins are the best part of Fall decor!  The pumpkin candy dish was one of my first fall decorations.  This year, I received the teal pumpkins as a gift.  I also received the black pumpkin in this photo and the orange pumpkin in the first photo as a gift.  They came with gem decals and turned out awesome! 
The pumpkin warmer featured above is from Scentsy and is by far my favorite warmer!  It’s currently warming Baked Apple Pie, for a nice warm and spiced aroma!

Repurpose Scentsy Clam Shells

As many of you already know, I’m a Scentsy Independent Consultant!  Today I wanted to share some ideas I’ve had on reusing Scentsy clam shells!  I get so many of these and I love finding ways to reuse them!!! 
What you’ll need:
-Empty clam shell
-Glue (Elmers & hot glue)
-Scrapbooking Paper
-Scissors
-Googly Eyes
-Pipe Cleaners
-Magnets
For the first project, I made a critter out of the lid portion of the clam shell. I cut a piece of scrapbook paper to the shape of the lid.  Using Elmer’s glue I secured the paper to the lid, then added the eyes and nose.  I used a marker to make the mouth.  Using a hot glue gun, I secured the pipe cleaner to the back of lid and also secured the magnet. I used corners of the scrapbooking paper to create the ears and glued them to the outer portion of the lid!   
When I initially used the magnets on the back of the lid, I used Styrofoam to lift the magnet out of the lid a little, but I later found it was easier to glue the magnet directly to the lid. 
This next project is great for my fellow Scentsy Consultants!  I cut the lid off of old clam shells and added my label with my information.  It’s a great play on a business card!  I just glued a magnet on the back.  I use it as a bag stuffer when packaging orders and my customers love it!  
This isn’t so much a project, but sharing an idea!  I love using the empty wax portion of the clam shell as a pallet for paints!  It comes in handy with all the crafting and painting I’ve been doing lately!!! 
The last idea is kinda fun!  I took a clam shell and glued a piece of scrapbook paper on the front.  I then cut eight slips of paper and tucked them into each section.  On the pieces of paper I wrote a small object, for example “penny” or “paper clip” to create a scavenger hunt.  Obviously you can write what ever you heart desires on the slips of paper, I was trying to think of little things that would fit into the little compartments!  
I hope you enjoyed today’s post!  I’d love to hear any other suggestions on how to reuse the clam shells!!! Happy Crafting Y’all!!!
