Where did Decemember Go?

 Okay so I feel like December is just flying by!  Although the festivities and gift giving are over I wanted to show you a simple little gift I made for all of the men in our lives.  See I have all girls but, everyone else in our family has seemed to have all boys.  It is so fun coming up with creative gift ideas for all of these guys.
This year I decided to make them all fun tie tacks to wear to go along with the other gifts that we got them.
I used some of my left over Scrabble pieces from this project and then I used a few of the thousands of Legos we have laying around to adhere to the tie tacks.  This was another simple but, fun project.  I made matching tie tacks for the dads to wear too.

 For uncle Daniel and cousin Duke.

The back of the tie tacks.  I found the pins at Joann's for a  reasonable price.

For cousins Mitchell and Parker and Uncle Grant. I hope they enjoy them.  We sure had a fun time putting them together.
So next time you need a gift for a little guy or even a bigger guy--try these fun tie tacks out!



  1. Cute!!! Now to find an old Scrabble game.

  2. Won a Scrabble board at our Christmas party, so I think I'll make those Scrabble tacks for the boys. (and a Vampire Diaries ring for me).
