DIY Hand Painted Ornaments

Create a fun, personalized Christmas tree this holiday season with these DIY hand painted ornaments. 

For many of us, the holiday season can often be a stressful time. From shopping for the perfect gift, planning a holiday meal, attending parties and decorating the house, it can quickly make us forget what the season is really about. That’s why we like to take time out of our busy lives to do some creative projects that bring a personalized feeling back into the holidays & let us unwind with some fun for an afternoon. 

A Thanksgiving Plywood Table

Calling it ‘plywood’ sounds better, but actually we used MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard), because it's cheaper and smoother. In any case, if you don't have a dining table big enough to comfortably seat a lot of your friends, plus fit a ton of tasty food on top, then don't worry, we have a solution. 

Just grab a sheet of MDF from the big-box hardware store, strap it to the top of your car, and bring it home. Fellas, this is where we put in a pitch for every guy to have a car-top rack. It's not just good for hauling bikes.

Sage Red Wine Cranberry Sauce

This classic take on a cranberry sauce is easy to make, and straight out of the essential Thanksgiving playbook. It’s a good foundation for learning to make other sauces down the road, and can be tweaked or improvised upon really easily. The sharp tartness of the berries combines with plenty of sweetness and citrus flavors, plus a dash of vanilla for smoothness.
