Ethan’s Christmas Stocking

Little Ethan and his family live near the shore-you may have noticed the Palm Christmas tree and the ocean with sailboat, waves and a jumping fish out of the window! I just love the aqua color and the fun bright red accents of this stocking!

Ethan’s name is done in a dotted wrapped stitch, but double wrapped for added dimension. The hand embroidery on his stocking includes a representation of Ethan himself, in Christmas red and white pajamas, wearing a cowboy hat, and holding a drum with drumsticks. The family dog, Madison, watches Ethan from behind. The Palm Christmas tree has lots of presents underneath waiting to be unwrapped, but there are a few other toys throughout the room for Ethan: his favorite night time book-Goodnight Moon, a set of blocks spelling his name, a red wagon with a teddy bear in it, and a toy car. Another little “ode” to the Goodnight Moon book is the little mouse on the bottom right corner of the stocking!

Thank you so much again Brandy for thinking of me to make this special stocking for your little guy!

David’s Fingerprint Snowman Jar (votive holder!)

My little 8 year old artist, David, used his finger tip to create these sweet snowmen! He did his own red scarves, black hats, orange noses and eyes and buttons. I used a frost effect to coat the jar ahead of time, after he was finished with his snowmen we added “snow” in the form of paint with glitter! Next I will add a battery operated votive, but it is already on display on my windowsill in the kitchen! See below for fun ideas making snowmen with a little one’s fingerprints.

Fingerprint/Handprint Snowmen!

I ¬†just love being able to preserve little fingerprints in a way that I can enjoy again and again! The fingerprint snowmen shown in the pictures are made from my 2year old niece’s little hand print. I used a sharpie to write the date and her name on the bottom of the jar for her Daddy to keep and bring out every year-my boys always love comparing how their hands have grown with their fingerprint/keepsake items!

I added a little pink scarf to each snowperson, a black hat, an orange nose, blue eyes (like Sophie’s!), stick arms, and even put little snowballs in some of the snowgirls hands! I dotted some white paint “snow” throughout the background of the jar, swirled some on the bottom and then sprinkled white glitter all over the jar so that it would stick to the white paint to make it even more snow like.

I also love to be able to recycle and reuse, this jar was actually a pasta sauce jar. I put a little battery operated votive inside of it and it is ready to go for holiday decorating!

There are so many variations on this theme you could do, too. My 8 year old just used his fingertip to create his snowmen and he loved making the scarves, hats, and the rest of the snowmen himself. I thought how fun it would be to get a fingerprint from each member of the family and have a snowperson represent everyone! We’ll see if we can get everyone to cooperate with that one!

And, I’m thinking as a teacher gift to have all of the kids put their own fingerprint on a jar with their name above the snowman. We can fill the jar with homemade white chocolate pretzels! One of my favorite treats to make with the kids!

Castle Princess Bed Canopy with Butterflies and Jewels!

What fun I have had working on this Castle Bed Canopy for little Lauren! She has a full sized bed that we got using Laura Ashley voucher codes, so this one is a bit larger and has extra long panels as her room has a very high ceiling. This Castle Bed Canopy has lots of pearly white cording to emphasize the quilting and castle pattern, it also has lots of pink and green jewels to add even more girliness to it! Lauren loves butterflies so they are incorporated through out the jeweled tulle panel that will extend out over top of the length of the bed as well as throughout the entire canopy.

The top of the canopy is done in a rich lime green cording that hangs from a ribbon covered circle to be able to attach to a hook on the ceiling. There are hand strung  jewels draping underneath the green cording to give the canopy an almost chandelierish effect!

The top edge of the canopy is finished off with a lime green and white chevron twill ribbon and the bottom edge of the top panels are finished off with a batting filled braiding of the same tarragon green as the main canopy.

The butterflies are hand cut, painted and even have glitter and glow in the dark paint for added effect for Lauren at night time! There are several little flowers- which may be what are attracting the butterflies to the canopy-interspersed throughout the top part of the canopy.

Four panels drape down from the canopy and can all be tied back, or just a couple depending on Lauren’s whim! They can be tied back with included pink and white chevron ribbon-so pretty!!!

There is also a “secret” pocket in the front panel of the canopy for Lauren’s mommy or daddy-or maybe a fairy?! to leave her occasional surprises or special letters!

This canopy has been a thrill for me to work on and I hope Lauren has lots of fun with it!

This bed canopy was designed and created by me. If you would like your own custom Coffey Creation please contact me at shannon@coffeycreationsforkids.com or check out my etsy shop for my premade items!
