Advent Calendar DIY

I just love love love this Advent Calendar idea which I saw in Pinterest.  What’s not to love about brown paper packages tied up with strings.  These are a few of my favourite things.


Unique Tablerunner

Here is another product which I really love.  It’s a chalkboard table runner from Uncommon Goods.  This is just great when the kids need some doodling time during dinner.  This unique and innovative design comes with dustless chalk so it is perfectly safe on your dining table.  You can even cut this up and turn it into a placemats or even hand as a banner.   Interested to get your hand on this?  Well just click here.

Cardboard Castle

If you cannot find any cardboard big enough to DIY a castle for your little girl, well fret no more.  Just get one from Calafant.  Crafted from high quality cardboard, this sturdy piece is just perfect for creative play.  The kids get to paint the castle in whatever colours they want.  Suitable for kids from 6 to 10 years old.  Available from Alex and Alexa.


I love this simple textile which I saw at Art & Article.  This large furoshiki cloth can be used as an apron, a tote for carrying groceries and produce, a bread bag, something to transport potluck and meals, a table cloth or even a reusable gift wrap.  The possibilities are endless.    I would love to get a few and use them as gift wrap.  Actually I would love it if someone were to gift me a Furoshiki.   I can do so much with it.


Creepy Wrapping Paper

If you enjoy giving presents but would want to be creepy, then this Creepy Wrapping Paper Book is what you need.  This book contains twelve 27″ x 18″ sheets of folded paper featuring worms, dental work, scary insects, suicidal pigs and other images appropriate for any holiday.    If you want to move away from the usual stripes or polka dots wrapping paper, then try something new like this Creepy Wrapping Paper Book from  Not for the faint-hearted though.

Fun Decals

Omy Magic Decals from French Blossom is fun.  Just stick it onto any surfaces like walls, furniture, window, paper and etc and let your imagination go wild.  The Omy Magic Decals do not contain glue and will stick and unstick forever.  All you need to do is wash them off with water to make them stick like new again.    I am sure kids would love to have it in their playroom or bedroom.


DIY Pinwheels

Pinwheels are fun.  They can brighten a place immediately. I am rather obsessed with them right now.  If you want to make some for your home, well check out this DIY Pinwheel set from  Each set comes with two pinwheels and a simple instruction is included.

Party Favour Bags

I am loving these adorable muslin bags from We Love Citrus shop.  They are just perfect for party favours, treats or small gifts.  If you want to change from using brown paper bags, try these out at your next party.

Printed Kraft Wrapping Paper

If you have been following this blog, you would know that I am head over heels in love with kraft paper. I love to wrap gifts with them. They are so versatile. I can feel my creative juice flowing when I decorate the kraft paper wrapped gifts. So you can imagine my delight when I spotted these printed brown kraft wrapping paper at

Recycled Party Decor

I was blog-hopping last night and when I was at Design Sponge, I read about its wonderful party decorations idea.  I love it to bits.  Design Sponge talked about using the things that we already have in the house and recycle them as party decorations.  It just super simple and not to mention eco-friendly too.  Just use flyers or magazine pages to create some tassels or newspapers as buntings.  Then decorate them with some washi tapes or colourful markers.  Awesome right?    I wonder what I can create with some t-nuts which I have plenty at home. Can’t wait for the next party so that I can let my creative juices flow.
