DIY Felted Christmas Sock Fobbie

I love decorating DIY Fobbies. I’ll often wonder the scrapbooking sections to find decorations. I found this cute felted Christmas sock to use. I marbleized this one with some cranberry Tim Holtz Adirondack alcohol inks first and then glued the sock down. To make it more decorative I used red tulle and accented with some elegant ribbon. I also used a pre-printed box so no wrapping paper was needed and the box can be reused.

DIY Pinecone Elegance

One of my favorite ways to decorate a DIY Fobbie is with a marbling look. I like to use the Tim Holtz Adirondack alcohol inks. I then cut a pinecone in half—they are very hard in the center—and glued gunned it in the center. I picked out ribbon that had pinecones and holly. I also placed some fake holly berries and greens under the Fobbie and cinched it down to hold it in place.

Tool Time

I wanted to give my brother a new toolbox. I of course bought some tools to put inside, but I thought it would be fun to decorate the box with different items for visual impact. I used glitter wire stems and attached a shop towel, screwdriver, wrench and then threaded nuts on the ribbon for more effect. It makes it more engaging to unwrap and feels like a lot more presents!

Yummy Gifts

At the holidays it seems like I’m always going to a party, or I want to bring a little something to a friend or neighbor. I go to a local discount store and pick up a nice loaf pan and bake a yummy banana bread or carrot cake. Once it cools I wrap it in clear plastic wrap and put it back in the pan. Then I Fobbie wrap it for a beautiful presentation. Now they can enjoy the bread as well as have a new loaf pan!
