DIY Santa Hat Craft With Foam Cones

DIY Santa Hat Craft With Foam Cones

Ho Ho Ho! These cute DIY Santa hat decorations are made with foam cones and red velvet.  You can make your own blinged out Santa Claus hat Christmas decor with a few craft supplies. This is a great project for adults and kids during the holiday season! This project is one of my all time favorite holiday crafts -- it is SO fun and doesn't cost a ton of money to make.  This post may contain affiliate links for your convenience.  See my  policies and disclosure page  for more information. I created this Santa hat craft project after I saw more expensive options in the store. They turned out even better than my inspiration and ended up costing way less.  I saw some cute Santa hat/suit decor things in Stein Mart and knew I could totally make them for cheaper.  Well, I decided to go for it. I started with three foam cones , in different sizes: I got them all for about $10. I think I used a coupon on the largest. If you can catch them on sale,

Before and After Tour of Our Home {Four Years Later!}

Our four year before and after home tour!  Welcome to the before and after tour of our modern Craftsman home with tons of custom DIY touches.  Can you believe it...we've been in our "new" home for more than four years now!  It feels like we've lived here MUCH longer. Not sure if that's a good thing or not. ;)  While we were building I had so many people ask what I was going to do with myself in a new, finished house.  Haha! Well ...plenty. :)  I love sharing how our home has changed year after year! I'm sharing photos from when we moved in and how those rooms look now.  You know how much I love good before and after pics!  Keep in mind...working on our home is my job. I'm so lucky to be able to do this as my business...but I never want anyone to feel like this is the normal pace for DIY projects.  DIY is my passion, so I'd be doing it no matter what! If you'd like to see how these rooms looked at the three year mark, check out our three year before
