Ever since my home tour on The Everygirl went live, I’ve gotten tons of emails from readers asking where I got the gold leaf “You Are My Bucket List” canvas that’s in my bedroom. I actually made it myself and I decided that it would be fun to wrap up the Twelve Early Days of Christmas mini series by giving away an 18×24 inch version to a lucky reader!
To enter, Instagram any of the photos in this post using the hashtag “#sugarandclothhometour” and mention @sugarandcloth. You have until Sunday at 12am CST to enter and it’s open to all readers with a U.S. shipping address. A winner will be randomly chosen and announced next Monday!

As to not leave you hanging for too long (no pun intended), here’s the full tutorial for yesterday’s DIY color block hanging ornament garland from my crafting party with Martha Stewart Living.
Assembling the garland is as simple as stringing the ornament hooks through wired ribbon, or in my case, felted wool rope. I offered guests two options so that they could choose either a more sophisticated look with silver wired ribbon or a more playful look with the felted wool rope. Fair warning though, this bad boy takes a ton of bulbs to make it full, so stock up before hand!
- Ornaments (I used the holiday frost collection from Martha Stewart, and paints)
- Ornament hooks
- Wired ribbong or felted wool rope
The quickest and easiest way (always good to know, right?) is to loop a set of three bulbs together on an ornament hook, and then twist the hook around your rope or ribbon. I created this one to have six bulbs for each color, but you can do as many or as little ad you’d like.
Once you’ve grouped one color on the garland, continue with groups of the following until you’ve got it as long as you’d like, and then clip the ribbon or rope and knot it at the ends of the bulbs.
Now all you have to do is hang or drape it in place! Don’t forget to follow along for all of the Twelve Early Days of Christmas projects and recipes, #12earlydaysofchristmas!

You might’ve caught word of an upcoming collaboration with Martha Stewart Living for the holidays if you follow along on Instagram, and I’m super excited to share. I figured I might as well go big or go home, so I’ll be celebrating Christmas early over the next twelve blogging days to share DIY’s and recipes to bookmark for this holiday season!
Make sure to stay in loop by following the hashtag #twelveearlydays, and be sure to use it if you decide to make any of the projects, I’d love to see them!
As if these last few weeks haven’t been enough to make me want to pinch myself, The Everygirl goes and features my home for a home tour. Have I died and gone to heaven or what? Seriously.
Also, this little adventure gave me the opportunity to meet the lovely Kimberly Chau who photographed everything. The girl is awesome, that’s all I can say! Go check out my cat, DIY’s in action, and of course, where I jump on the bed in the full tour. Plus, all of the details on what’s in my home, how I got started blogging, and what I’m into these days. Let me know what you think!
