Quick DIY Faux Fur Scarf Video Tutorial!

Hello and happy New Years to you all!

It's that time of year again when you make resolutions... to shop less, to spend less. It's also some of the hardest days to get through because you have post-holiday sadness, and the cold, cloudy weather when you are craving sunshine! You could also use some retail-therapy but you spent all your money on Christmas and that would break most of your resolutions, too! Haha! Can anyone relate??

I have the perfect solution for you! And it'll add something special to your winter outfit, for only $10.00.

A Faux Fur Scarf!! I cannot believe how soft and cozy this faux fur is! My youngest girl, Lily, steals this scarf from me any time she gets the chance to curl up in it. Makes me think I need to make her one!

It's a super simple DIY- hardly any pinning or measuring. Under 30 minutes: a few cuts, a few stitches and you'll have your new favorite accessory! Also, it will help you to keep your resolutions, AND keep you warm! :)

All you need:
1/2 YD Faux Fur (Got mine at Hobby Lobby)

Christmas Plaid Wide Leg Pants Tutorial with Video

Hi Hi!

I love the idea of a dressy pant or jumpsuit instead of a dress or skirt for the holidays. It can be just as dressed up but with a modern twist!

I came across my inspiration picture for these pants from an adorable girl I follow on Instagram, who was wearing sequins pants. I LOVED them. They were the perfect, fun, over-the-top kind of piece you can wear during the holidays and not feel over-dressed. The fact they were wide leg pants was a unexpected aspect. I set out to find sequins fabric to recreate the look...

Unfortunately, our little town didn't have sequin fabric and since I was too impatient to wait for shipping, I found the next best thing in our Hobby Lobby: PLAID. Shimmery, fancy Christmas Plaid, as I like to call it :)

Even though I know this pant would look amazing in sequin fabric, I am very happy with the way they turned out!

These pants would look cute in lots of fabric choices and would also be perfect for New Years Eve!!
Please let me know if you have any questions and I would love to hear feedback! What do you think? Would you wear these?? Not going to lie- my husband said "It's a look" haha. But I love them anyways.

Merry Christmas from my family to yours! 
May God bless you all!!
