Last Day For Online Christmas Gift Shopping

Deadline For Online Christmas Shopping

Hopefully by now you have finished most of your Christmas shopping.  If not, you still have some time for local shopping.

As for me, I have a low tolerance for large crowded stores and shopping among last minute stressed out Christmas shoppers.  So if I can, I absolutely avoid going any where near a brick and mortar retail store the last few weeks leading up to Christmas.  If you share my same sentiment, there is still time for you to shop online.  If you are looking for something unusual for someone special, I highly recommend shopping on Etsy.

While my Etsy shops offer more Christmas decorating, holiday crafting and home decor, rather than gifts, you can still browse any of them by clicking on the links below-

READY SET CRAFT KITS

I have plenty of Christmas ornaments that are ready to ship, so why not add one last handmade ornament to the Christmas tree this year!  Or maybe a little something new next year, like a tree banner or letter garland. . . yes, my Christmas letter banners look amazing hanging in the tree!

I highly recommend selecting PRIORITY shipping at checkout if if is available in any Etsy shop at checkout or to first reach out to an Etsy seller to confirm they can get something to you before Christmas.  Many do offer ready to ship gifts just for you last minute online shoppers but some sellers may have a much longer custom made to order production time- so it’s best to ask first before buying online.

If you are looking for Christmas shopping tips, holiday decorating inspiration and gift wrapping ideas, I’ve put together a quick roundup of some of my previous holiday posts here on the blog.  Sit down with a cup of coffee and enjoy some of my previous holiday tips by clicking on any of the links below-

Ornament Wreath How To

Supplies Needed:  Straw wreath form, hot glue gun/glue, Ornaments

Begin by hot gluing the large ornaments to the wreath form along the inside and outside edges of the wreath.

Then slowly layer the ornaments until the wreath is covered.  Once you have no more room for large ornaments fill in any gaps with the smaller ornaments.

Sweater Wreath How To

Start with your supplies –  All you need is an 18 inch styrofoam wreath and a sweater.

First you will need to cover the foam form with the sweater.  Cutting along the seam that would start at your armpit and go down your arm.

So now you need to glue it to your wreath form.  Lay the sweater right side down and glue a little bit at a time one edge on top of the other.

You will have an ugly seam at the bottom which you will hide with the felt flowers and there will be another seam at the top which you will hide with a sign.

Twine Star Wreath How To

Lay 10 wood shims on a flat surface in a star pattern. Arrange the shims so a thin end on one shim rests on the thick end of another.

At each place where the shims overlap, apply wood glue and press the shims together. Use weights, such as quart cans, to press the wood pieces together for two hours.

Start at one point on the star and wrap twine around the frame until you reach the opposite side. Avoid putting too much tension on the twine. Keep the twine from slipping off by dabbing hot glue on strands at the back of the star.

Cut a piece of twine about 8 inches long and tie a loop in the center.

On the back of the star along one of the five points near the base, glue one loose end from the loop to each shim to hang the ornament.

Thanks again for stopping by Party Fetti, stay tuned for more Christmas ideas!
