Weekend DIY crafts; mostly Christmas

It was a little stir crazy around the house this weekend as we were iced in for 5 LONG days.  With the exception of the kiddos going sledding across the street with friends, I was locked inside with LOTS of time!!  So, what better to do than browse Pinterest and find some fun and easy things to make!!  
I went a little crazy!!!

Here are a few things I made….

Santa Cups to fill with with treats for my DI kiddos!!
*red cups 6 for $.88 at Walmart, electrical tape and
glitter foam paper cut in squares for belt buckles

Gift Card Tree for Mrs Garcia (I'm her Room Mom)
*styrofoam cone wrapped in red raffia 

Personalized Christmas Totes for my Kiddos :)
*designed on computer and printed on iron on transfer paper
I suggest using DARK color transfer paper for the totes

Extra Gum Stocking Stuffer
*got free download on Pinterest to print the tags:
My Lil Stinker just wanted a Super Hero costume :)~
*got long john set at Walmart $7, matching socks $2 and
had the scrap fabric for cape, star and belt

Mason Jars with Party Mix

*styrofoam cones & pipe cleaners from Hobby Lobby
NO glue, just push pipe cleaner in about 1/4 of an inch and start wrapping;
continue until it is completely wrapped.

I used paint pens to decorate the snowmen
