Winter Chalkboard & Coffee Filter Garland {Super Quick & Free Project!}

Thanksgiving's over and the kids are asking when we are going to put the Christmas tree up already! I love fall decor but there's no denying I am fighting the inevitable. Not that I don't love that Christmas-sy feeling too, but I'm not quite ready for the tree. The neighbors have put up their lights and it definitely looks more like a winter wonderland outside instead of a fall hayride. So this morning I took less than 5 minutes to make it feel like it's beginning to look a little like Christmas around here. Happy "Cyber Monday" ! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

No Sew DIY Tote Bag Makeover: Cute Pockets! (No Cost)

Supplies: Canvas tote bag with pockets, fabric scraps a little bigger than the pockets, iron, ruler, scissors, fabric glue, gluestick.

I started with this tote bag I had lying around and went through my fabric scraps for something that would make cute pockets. I cut the fabric to about 1/2" bigger than the actual pocket.

I ironed the fabric and then folded over each edge to exactly the pocket dimensions and ironed them down.

I used just a cheap gluestick, glueing and then pressing down the fabric, to make sure the under edges would stay down thus making it easier for the next step.

Using fabric glue, I applied to all edges then attached the fabric square on top of the existing pocket, pressing firmly then set a stack of books on top until dry.

And here she is in all her new pocket cuteness!
