Many of the tutorials I received were for home decor items, so this will be a two-part post - the rest will be posted tomorrow!
Here's a tutorial for some pretty candles from Martha Stewart.
Here's a tutorial for a gift recipe tin, also from Martha Stewart.
Just Something I Made has an adorable tutorial for cute decorative houses and all sorts of ideas for using them. I love the idea to use them as stamp dispensers. Very useful to us swappers...
The Little House by the Sea has a pattern and tutorial for such cute little felt mushrooms!
My Little Mochi has a great tutorial for making little bowls that snap together when you need them, and lie flat when you don't. Great for people (like me) who don't have much space.
I don't know about you, but party crackers are always present during the holidays at my boyfriend's family's home. Here's a tutorial for making them from Not Martha.
Or, here's an idea for making gifts out of egg shells.
Here's another cute use for eggs as vases from Design Sponge (one of my new favourite sites – I can't stay away!).
Here's a pattern for some lovely little paper flowers from Folding Trees.
