Oh, I’m so happy! Nearly a 100 new great ideas richer. Thank you all so much.
Now choosing, which DIY/craft project is best… it’s impossible. I don’t know any more. So, I just scoured around amongst the ones that were visited more than others, and then I added a couple of my personal favorites.
Here is my TOP 5 from linky party #42.
1. Dutch Cookies on Cup’s Rim
People think of wind mills and tulips when they think of Holland, but I think of groovy design. This Dutch cookie that sits on the rim of your coffee cup being a case in point. Isn’t it fabulous? Unique, easy, practical, crisp, golden brown, delicious (bettya it’s made with REAL butter) and not too big either.

BTW. those of you who are into cookie making should check out this Martha Stewart free cooking making app for their iPhone/iPad.
2. Chalk Paint-covered Ornaments
You readers are just the most talented people! I totally love this chalk paint covered ornament. Which is basically an el-cheapo ordinary ornaments with a coat of chalk paint, and a rub with sand paper.
3. Hand-painted Cabinet
After: gorgeous front-panel with romantic ‘French’ flowers.
But this was the before:
4. Washer Snowman Pendant – Ornament
This washer snowman was made by A Creative Princess and we all love it. Cool, easy and a fun holiday giveaway to boot.
5. Paper Doilie Tree Ornaments
These doily Christmas trees are a simple, fun paper craft to do with the kids, or with grandma. It’s one of those crafty projects for the holidays that anyone can add their creativity too. Kids might add markers, while elderly might like to add simple things like real holly or apply other Christmas traditions to them.
Anyhow, the doily tree ornaments are fun and super easy. Make a dozen and you have a garland, or a tree full of them.

BTW. Last year I made TONS of homemade paper doily tree ornaments, and garlands, and front door embellishments etc etc. They looked fabulous… And so I am posting this to remind myself to treat you an tutorial on it.
