I created a template below that you can download and print. You can resize it to the same proportion as your ornament. The easiest way to resize it would be to drag it into Microsoft Word and resize. You could get fancy and do it in photoshop or get even fancier and not use the template at all and find any basket texture and draw out a template for a box. If you just want to skip the basket making altogether see the alternative at the bottom of post.

Time for another DIY craft project and today I’ll be showing you exactly how you can make this twine-ball light garland yourself. It’s one of those projects that’s a little bit messy and does take quite a bit of time, but it is so much fun. Plus you have a really cool piece of decor at the end of it. Perfect for parties or around the home, you can paint it up in any colour you want to match your design scheme, and when lit, it looks so pretty, casting lots of patterned twinkly light everywhere. Mine is now taking pride of place in my office. How-to make a Twine Ball Light Garland
The lovely and incredibly talented Laurie Cinotto created this adorable D.I.Y. Paper Bird Cage Project for Janie at The Bride's Cafe and they agreed to let me share it with you all here on Creature Comforts too (yay - thanks ladies)! What I find so great about projects like this is how customizable they are.

My heart jumps any time I see the letters DIY. Being a “do it yourself: enthusiast, I am constantly trying to find things I can make at home with unique and vintage materials. I was at the home of a friend and fellow artist, Michal Strawbridge, and I saw a chandelier she had created using mason jars.
How many of you have seen and fallen in love with this backdrop from BHLDN ? And how many of you nearly passed out at the price tag?! I mean, $1,800?! How many of you at that point said you could do it yourself?
I had randomly mentioned to my Hubby a couple of weeks ago that I wanted to move our bedroom into the master bedroom (I know that sounds odd but when we had originally bought the place we put ourselves in the guest room because my younger sister was living with us and we wanted her to be able to have her own space. The master bedroom was all the way to the back of the condo and had it's own bathroom so it made sense). Well, this casual mention was apparently taken to heart because I came home one day from work and he'd made the switch! What an awesome surprise to come home to; I got what I wanted and didn't even have to lift a finger for it!
O.K. Get ready for it … this one’s a doozy. Doozie? Doosey.
Bliss Home in Knoxville was a shop on the walk between the Knoxville Convention Center (where the show was) and my hotel. This curtain/screen called out to me as I walked by. Each "string" is made from colorful hand-cut rectangles that were sewn together with heavy black thread. The strings were long, ceiling to floor length. At the top the strings were tied to metal rods that were suspended from the ceiling. On closer inspection, the colored rectangles were paint chips!
I spent today with my Mom, sister Brooke, and Marcie, my sister-in-law and and Jen, sister-in-law-to-be. Can I just say I love those women. We were busy with plans and decorations for the upcoming wedding of Josh (my brother) and Jen. I am so excited about the creative “Make it Do” ideas we have for the wedding… it’s going to be beautiful.
I love the way the cherry trees outside my building bloom cheerfully each Spring. I wanted to bring the beauty of those cherry blossoms indoors so I made some out of tissue paper and to make them even more special I added LEDs These pretty lights are inexpensive and easy to make. They are made mostly from material found at a dollar store. You can make several branches for a spray of cherry blossoms to decorate your room.
I’ve been collecting vintage crochet doilies for several months, with plans to make this pendant lamp.
