Save $200 on Dyson DC23 Turbinehead Animal @ Hudson’s Bay Canada – now $400 & Free Shipping TODAY (EXPIRED)

Save $200 on Dyson DC23 Turbinehead Animal @ Hudsons Bay Canada   now $400 & Free Shipping TODAY (EXPIRED)

Been dreaming of getting a Dyson? For today only at Hudson’s Bay, you can save $200 off a Dyson DC 23 Turbinehead Animal canister vacuum making it $399.95 plus you get free shipping.

Just the other day, my friend posted on Facebook questioning whether it was really better to get a Dyson Animal vacuum and I told her I thought it was. Other friends who had experiences with Dyson agreed that it worked for them. The regular price is $599 – if you have been needing or wanting this product, it is a third off which makes it a very good saving. These types of sales on Dyson products don’t seem come up very often, from what I have seen.

It was good value to me because it is a quality machine that works and keeps on working without losing function over time. No matter how many difficult messes that I’ve tasked it with it still picks up the same as when I first got it. You don’t have to worry about the added cost or inconvenience of buying filters over time, it comes with a built in HEPA filter. Also the filter is really easy to clean just run it under the tap and wait 24 hours until your next use and it is good to go. The dust trap is easy to dump into the bin without dust going everywhere. Just literally hold the canister over the trash and then press the button to open and the dust goes straight in.

Dyson products are also really good for allergy sufferers. They are certified asthma and allergy friendly by the Asthma Society of Canada. What surprised me was it can make a difference for not only the people in your house, but also your pets too. We have a little dog who has allergies and getting rid of the allergens on a regular basis makes a huge difference to him.

If you have been waiting for your chance to own a bit of British ingenuity and quality at $399.95 today is a great opportunity.

Price Comparison

The DC23 Turbinehead Animal is sold online at a few other Canadian stores, it’s over $538 @ Amazon, $600 @ Vacuumscanada. It does seem to be a slightly older model than the current Dyson range, probably one of the reason’s that it’s on offer at The Bay today.

Best Prices On Your Personalized Gifts This Season

Best Prices On Your Personalized Gifts This Season

If you are anything like me, Christmas is a time to give gifts that are special. With our rushed schedules, many of us don’t have time to DIY or craft a gift for a loved on. Enter in specialized sites that allow us to personalize gifts so they are special and unique, but we don’t have to make them with our own bare hands. But, personalized gifts can get pricey, so I’ve compiled a list of the lowest prices for each individual gift!

This took me honestly hours of research to find what store had the best prices on each item, plus it has also cost me a few $$ as I bought my favourites! At least I got a few gifts crossed off the list. Its good to start these sort of gifts early, as it might take you a bit to design the gift and then get it shipped.

Calendars

Calendars are a useful and thoughtful gift. I got one last year from my sister-in-law with all of our family’s photos, plus all the special dates already penciled in. That was not just super helpful, but I’d much rather look at the smiling face of the Websters than a milk recipe all month.

The best deal I found on calendars is this one from Picaboo. For only $9, you can create one custom 11×9 calendar. If you want to create more, you can for an additional, but well-discounted price. This is by far the best deal I found on calendars, with prices usually around $15-$20 or more.

Canvas

While I’m not sure I would give a friend or family member a canvas because I don’t like to choose what others hang on their walls, this is a nice gift for someone close to you. For example, I know my husband would love a canvas with a photo of him and our boys or of a scenic photo from a recent trip we took.

Canvas prices are subjective because it all depends on the sizes you are looking for, but I found this very hot deal at Walmart Photo Centre. Get three 11×14″ canvases for only $95.97 with coupon 3CANVAS. This is a hot deal indeed, considering that size of canvas is usually at least $50 each. I’m picking one of these deals up for myself asap.

Photobooks

Of course, photobooks are a hot gift under the tree any year. I love giving and getting these. Generally, there are two sizes you’d want to give – large and small. These sizes vary depending on the store you get them from, and so do the features of the photobook, including the type of cover, pages and amount of pages.

For the larger photobook, I found the best deal is at Snapfish, who is selling their 12×12″ size photobook with a leather cover for $54.99, but you can use our exclusive coupon code to get another 30% off that price, making your final price $38.49, making it the best deal I could find. The runner-up might be Costco, where their 12×12 books sell for $39.99.

For the smaller photobook, I like the 11×8.5″ size (which is maybe more of a medium size) and the best deal I found was at Photobook Canada, where we have an exclusive deal with them for the price of $24.99 and free shipping. Most smaller books came in around the $35 mark for the 8×8″ size.

Other Photo Gifts

There is so much selection out there for photo gifts like blankets, puzzles, mugs, ornaments and more. I choose a select few and price compared these and I found Shutterfly, who is having a sale right now on photo gifts, had by far the best price of all the photo gift stores. Don’t forget that Shutterfly ships from the U.S., so you may incur duties, but I have ordered from them and have not had any duties charged. Most notably, the mouse pads at Shutterfly are only $5 and the 11oz mugs are only $9.89. I found both of these items for double the price at other stores.

Ornaments

Again, this is where Walmart wins with its regular price on a personalized photo ornament being only $12.97. You might want to take a look at the other stores though, because the selection is so varied when it comes to ornaments from plastic to ceramic to metal.

Buytopia Canada: $10 Deals + Free Shipping

Posted by on November 12, 2014 at 6:00 PM

Buytopia Canada: $10 Deals + Free Shipping

Looking for cheap stocking stuffers? Then head over to Buytopia right now because for a limited time, you can get plenty of deals for just $10, along with free shipping!

There are plenty more, but here are ten $10 deals that most stood out to me, along with their original prices:

For all those of you obsessed with cutepolish‘s YouTube channel or with doing your nails in general, then be sure to check out the $10 deal on the 3D nail art pens. For just $10, you get 12 nail art pens of different colours (from black, white to blue, gold, etc.) that you can use to create different designs on your nails. I do my nails every couple of days and own a couple of nail art pens myself and I have to say that this is a fantastic deal. The pens I have bought cost a little over $10 for each, so considering you get 12 of these babies for $10 is actually pretty incredible and the free shipping offer definitely makes it even better.

The Global SIM card deal is also an interesting one because on top of costing just $10, it also comes with $10 free airtime credit. Overall, it’s a $30 value and the cool part is that all you need to do is insert the SIM card into your own phone when travelling to then enjoy reduced rates per minute. The rate depends on the country you visit but for instance, you could talk and surf the internet in the US for just $0.09/ minute. To learn more about the rates, check out G3 Wireless‘ site.

Keep in mind that according to the fine print on each product, shipping takes between 4 and 6 weeks after a deal has ended. As a friend of mine found out when he was shopping for an anniversary present for his wife, this is an incredibly important detail to factor in, especially with regards to Christmas presents or for any other occasion in general.

Kobo Coupon Code: $40 Off Kobo Aura

Posted by on November 12, 2014 at 5:00 PM

Kobo Coupon Code: $40 Off Kobo Aura

Good news for those who like to read! The Kobo Aura e-reader is $40 off directly from the Kobo website. You can enter the coupon code at the checkout to receive the discount and bring the price down to $99.99. Looking around the same Kobo Aura e-reader is still full price at Indigo, Best Buy and Future Shop for $139.99

Click here to check out this deal @ Kobo.com now

  • Coupon Code: JUSTFORYOU
  • Discount: $40 off
  • Expiry: 24th November 2014

If you already have a large phone or a tablet and are thinking why bother getting an e-reader if you can download books directly onto your device, I think there are a few outstanding benefits that made it a worthwhile purchase for me. I have personally found the e-readers to be much lighter to hold and the screen easier on the eyes. I have a tablet and the weight of the tablet is admittedly light, but as a regular reader over time I found that it was damaging my wrist to hold the tablet up while occasionally flicking as I read over long periods. With the e-reader I can hold it one handed with much less fatigue in my wrist.

Also I like to read before bed and the light from the tablet strained my eyes. Staring at screens all day like most of us do, it was a relief to have a more gentle glare-free light that the e-reader provided.

There is also a long battery life for the Kobo Aura and you can store up to 3,000 books, both of which are helpful if you are travelling or otherwise away from wifi access. It doesn’t apply to me but, for someone who needs to read with a large font, the Aura offers a wide variety fonts and sizes. I really like the optional reader stats as well, so that I can keep track of the books that I have read and keep challenging my personal best.

If you had heard of e-readers and were curious about jumping on the e-reading bandwagon, or if you are looking for a gift for the bookworm in your life now is a good time to snag one. At $99.99 it is a bargain price, much cheaper than a new tablet, and could be just the thing to encourage you or your loved ones in the goal of reading more.

Carter’s OshKosh Canada Baby Sale: 20% Off Everything Baby

Posted by on November 12, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Carter’s OshKosh Canada Baby Sale: 20% Off Everything Baby

Shopping for a baby? Then check out Carter’s OshKosh Baby Sale! For a limited time, you can get a 20% discount on baby clothes and accessories for both baby girls and boys! There are also a numbr of general neutral choices to pick from.

When my little girl was about a month old, I dressed her up in a yellow onesie that my mom had gotten her for a little trip to the mall. On the way there, hubby and I stopped at the Tim’s drive thru and much to my dismay, the cashier exclaimed: “awh, what a cute little boy!” Ouch, I thought, especially since hubby and I had just finished talking about whether yellow was a colour for boys or if it was neutral. Personally, I think it’s a happy colour that looks good on both, so if you’re on the hunt for either gender neutral clothing or any cute outfits in general, then the neutral section has a couple of cute picks for $12-14.40, like the 3-pc bodysuit & pant set for $12 (reg. $15).

With Christmas a little over a month away, it’s definitely not too early to start dressing your baby in red, green and white clothing and there are plenty of great picks on sale right now like:

If you’re a shopping procrastinator and have yet to buy a snowsuit for your baby, then now’s the perfect opportunity to get that as well. For girls, I spotted the 1-pc baby snowsuit on sale for $36 (reg. $45). It’s white with little silver hearts and can easily be worn over other clothes. For boys, there are a couple of really nice fleece jackets that would be absolutely perfect for the car seat. The sherpa-lined flannel shirt jacket, for instance, is on sale for $16 (reg. $20) and would look super cute on any little boy. The shirt part is made from 100% cotton flannel and the lining is made from 100% polyester sherpa.

There is plenty more to choose from as the discount is on everything baby-related and the price you see already includes the discount.

Shipping is free on orders over $50.

NCIX Canada: Destiny For The Sony PS4 | Was $70 Now $50

Posted by on November 12, 2014 at 3:33 PM

NCIX Canada: Destiny For The Sony PS4 | Was $70 Now $50

Fellow gamers, I found a pretty sweet deal on NCIX that I’d like to share with you – it’s for the ever-popular video game Destiny for the Sony PS4 system. This title was just released recently, and now you can save $20 off the retail price! You can now purchase Destiny for the PS4 for only $49.99! It normally costs $69.99, so this is a nice deal – especially if your child has this on their Christmas list! You’ll also get free shipping with your order, which is always a nice bonus!

Destiny for the PS4 video game system has quite the following – it came out amid much fanfare, and actually looks really cool! One of my friends was literally counting down the days for this game to be released, and he would constantly tell me about how much he looked forward to playing it. In fact, he actually booked a day off from his workplace to play the game on the release date! He anticipated Destiny so much that he pre-ordered the game from EB Games and picked it up during its midnight release. Now that’s dedication!

This is definitely one of the most popular PS4 games of the year. Many PS4 owners would love to get their hands on this exciting game during the holiday season, so this deal at NCIX is pretty convenient for those who plan to buy this game anyways.

If you wanted to buy Destiny for the PS4 at Best Buy, it would cost you $69.99. I’ve included a snippet of a review of this game from Playstation Official Magazine Australia below:

Videogame worlds are rarely this rich and addictive. No matter your pleasure – story-based campaigning, co-op comradeship, or adversarial annihilation – Destiny delivers on all fronts.

Quantities are extremely limited, so get this deal while it’s still available! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Constylement Coupon: Exclusive 5% Discount & 5% Bonus for Sellers

Posted by on November 12, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Constylement Coupon: Exclusive 5% Discount & 5% Bonus for Sellers

Constylement Canada has sent Bargainmoose an exclusive coupon code for 5% off any purchase of pre-loved designer goods.

Click here to view delicious designer deals @ Constylement Canada now

  • Coupon Code: HOLIDAYMOOSE
  • Discount: 5% off
  • Expiry: 10th January 2015

This coupon saves you an extra few dollars on amazing designer finds from other people’s wardrobes. These bags, pieces of jewellery, scarves, and more have been gently loved and now need a new home.

My favourite item on the Constylement website right now is the Louis Vuitton Monogram Petit Noe for $595, originally $1270. While I am not fond of the LV monogram design nor colour combination, I do love the shape of this bag and think the size is just perfect for a daily bag. In addition, the price cannot be beat for an authentic Louis Vuitton. After coupon code, this bag comes down to $535.50. There is only one of these bags so do not hesitate or you may be too late.

For sellers:

As I mentioned, this is a two-part deal. If you have designer goods to sell, Constylement Canada is offering Moosers an extra 5% commission on their designer goods. That means you will make 75% back on the selling price of your designer goods instead of the usual 70% that Constylment offers. To receive this bonus you must mention that you found Constylement through Bargainmoose. As the average selling price is 40 to 70% of original retail price, you can certainly make back a good deal of your original investment in your designer item.

Curious about selling? Here are a few basics you need to know:

There is of course no fee to consign, and if the item doesn’t sell, no charges are applied when the item is returned to the buyer.

Items must be valued at $200 or over. Bags, watches, wallets, and accessories are in the highest demand. Very select clothing (no shoes or sunglasses) will be accepted. You can consult the FAQ for any questions you may have. Quotes for anything you want to consign are free of charge and there is no obligation to consign the item after receiving your quote.

Right now, Constylment is only taking the following brands: Balenciaga, Dior, Gucci, Fendi, Prada, Miu Miu, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Tiffany&Co., Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Rolex, Chloe, and Burberry. I am disappointed that they are not taking Alexander McQueen as I am always looking for places to buy pre-loved McQueen. He is one of my designer obsessions.

Picaboo (US) Coupon Code: Free Mini Photo Book ($20 Value) – Pay Shipping

Posted by on November 12, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Picaboo (US) Coupon Code: Free Mini Photo Book ($20 Value)   Pay Shipping

Picaboo (US) has a sweet little coupon code out for a free Premium Mini Photo Book valued at $19.99. Get the book free, just pay $8.99 for shipping. Taxes are also not included.

Click here to start designing your mini photo book @ Picaboo (US) now

  • Coupon Code: WEMISSYOU
  • Discount: free premium mini photo book
  • Expiry: 1st January 2015

Yeah, I agree that shipping rate kind of sucks but it certainly beats buying the book and then paying shipping on top of it. In addition, you will be hard pressed to find a mini photo book for that price with shipping included.

So, what is so ‘premium’ about this mini book? Well, it actually has some cool features that I have not seen in other books. You have seamless lay pages for a nice appearance, but that is only where things start. This book is high quality. The pages are made of double-thick premium satin-finished paper and are both stain-proof and tear-proof for when your kid gets their hands on your photo book. The cover has a matte UV-coating to ensure your book is fade resistant and the cover features a beautiful wraparound design that is popular in many of the larger photo books.

You get a choice when making your book. Design a 5″ by 4″ book for a landscape layout or a 5″ by 5″ book for the perfectly square mini photo book. Whichever you choose, either is free with the above coupon code.

I did a little price comparing with other photo book companies to see what they are selling their mini books for these days.

  • $24 – Mini Square (6×6″) @ Photobook Canada
  • $15.99 – Layflat Booklet (4×6″) @ Snapfish Canada
  • $12.99 US – Small Square (7×7″) @ Blurb Canada

All of these were with the most basic of paper. When I upped the Blurb book to just a premium paper, the price jumped by $2. That ignores all those other features like double thick pages, UV-coating and such. It is quite hard to price compare products like these to other companies as I expect only Photobook Canada’s products have near the equivalent quality to Picaboo’s photo books.

For just the shipping fee, I think this is a good deal. There is a limit of one per customer. My suggestion is to make up a book of naughty pictures and stick it in your lover’s stocking. Now that will sure spice up their Christmas!

For this and future Picaboo coupon codes, visit the forum.

Walmart Canada: iFLY Backpacks Just $5 (Was $19 – $29)

Posted by on November 12, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Walmart Canada: iFLY Backpacks Just $5 (Was $19   $29)

Walmart Canada has a couple iFLY backpacks on sale for just $5 each. You will want to pick up these deals quick as there is limited stock left.

The multi-compartment backpack was originally $29 and is now on sale for $5. For 83% off, you really cannot do better. Limited quantities are currently available online, so snap up this deal quickly. When they say multi-compartment, they really are not kidding. The backpack has a:

  • large main compartment
  • separate zippered computer pocket with tablet sleeve
  • three front pockets
  • two skateboard carry straps
  • two zippered side pockets with flap closures

Your child will also benefit from a full mesh padded back and mesh lined shoulder straps. The inside backpack organizer will help them keep their school supplies in order for at least a few days. There is one review of this backpack currently with a full five star rating:

Kids love them. Strong. Just what they wanted. Two year warranty brings peace of mind

The iFLY backpack with two large compartments was $19 and is now $5. While this discount is not nearly as large as the backpack above, nearly 75% off is nothing to snivel at. The backpack has fewer pockets but still has all the features you need in a backpack. Two large pockets allow one for books and another for gym wear. There is also a front pocket and two side mesh and fabric pockets for essentials. The back features the same mesh padded design while sporting a colourful front design.

This backpack was reviewed less than two weeks ago. The reviewer gave it five stars and said:

Nice backpack and great price! Multiple pockets and also a small water bottle holder on the side.

At only $5 each with free shipping, you cannot go wrong when ordering either of these backpacks. Even if your child already has their backpack for this year, purchase one and keep it in storage for next year. You can also keep an extra backpack as backup. I have actually worn through a couple backpacks in my day so an extra backpack is rather handy.

If you are looking for more great backpack deals, Walmart has some lower value backpacks on for $5 as well. These were the best value backpacks for the best price that I could find, but if you spot any other great deals, let me know!

Best Buy Canada: Save Up To $50 On Select iPad & iPad Air Models | Today Only

Best Buy Canada: Save Up To $50 On Select iPad & iPad Air Models | Today Only

Hey there, my fellow deal hunters! Best Buy is currently having a one-day sale on many of their Apple iPad models, including the iPad Air! You can save up to $50 on these popular tablets, which is a good deal to have during the holiday season! Some of the models that you can save on include the Apple iPad with Retina Display (4th Generation) 16GB ($359.99 – was $399.99), and the Apple iPad Air 2 16GB With Wi-Fi – Gold ($509.99 – was $549.99). What’s also great is the fact that you’ll also qualify for free shipping! Whooo!

There are many great Apple iPad models to choose from during this limited time flash sale! You can only take advantage of these savings today only – this flash sale will end before midnight on November 12th. This will be a very hot item on many Christmas lists this year, and you can do so many great things with these high quality and hugely topical tablets.

My iPad Mini is filled with useful apps, and I’m very happy to have it. It’s an amazing device to read eBooks on, too – and I love to browse the web and check out YouTube videos on it. It’s also fantastic to have around you whenever you’ve stumped yourself with a random question (like “where can I find a Taco Bell in town?”). In fact, my significant actually uses her iPad as an alarm clock – it’s set on an internet radio station, so whenever we wake up in the morning, we always hear some different tunes.

If you wanted to buy the Apple iPad Air 2 16GB With Wi-Fi – Gold from The Apple Store or at Staples, it’ll cost you $549. I’ve included a brief review of this tablet from a satisfied Future Shop customer below:

Too good better than last year’s iPad Air – so fast!!!!

Happy hunting, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Select Rugs Canada: Up to 50% Off Orders & Free Shipping

Posted by on November 12, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Select Rugs Canada: Up to 50% Off Orders & Free Shipping

Select Rugs Canada has an interesting promotion going on right now. Save 50% on all orders of $500 or more, 45% on all orders of $250 to $500, and 40% on all orders up to $250, not including clearance rugs or rug pads.

You will also save 50% off all traditional rugs. The clearance section has 55 to 80% off rugs but this discount cannot be combined with the above discount based on cost. Rug pads are also 35% off currently. This makes for many discounts on rugs of all shapes and sizes.

I have been recently thinking of buying a rug for the living room. We live in an apartment with faux hardwood flooring that is impossibly cold during the winter. It does not help that we do not have any ground below our floor for insulation; rather our floor is above the carport. The carport is open to the elements so it makes poor insulation and leaves our flooring frigid come fall. We are not the only ones who notice this; the cats also refuse to lie on the floor. They rather seek the comfort of the couches or our bed. I think a carpet would help keep their little feet warm and our too.

I picked out a beautiful Nautical Rug currently on clearance. I want a sizeable rug, and I think the 5′ 3″ x 7′ 6″ rectangle should do the trick. Originally $455.48, the rug is now on sale for $227.74. The full image will show on this size of rug; however, if you order a smaller rug then the image may be scaled down or a bit cut off to fit the rug size you order.

If I wanted a larger rug, then I might think of buying this Bay Side rug that is also on clearance. I think that the 9′ 2″ x 12′ 6″ rectangle would cover the majority of our living room, which would be fine with the cats and I. Originally $777.53, the rug is now on sale for $349.89.

Keep in mind; I picked out lower quality rugs as they cost less. If you want true quality rugs, that are made with natural materials or are handmade instead of machine made, then they cost a great deal more. Either way, this promotion is a fantastic way to save money on a rug.

Select Rugs Canada also offers free shipping on all order with no minimum. As rugs are large and heavy, this is a great offer.

WalMart Canada: George Womens Comfort Capri Pants | Was $18 Now $5

Good afternoon, my fellow deal hunters! WalMart is always making a splash with their clearance sales, and this one is no exception. You can now purchase a pair of George Women’s Comfort Capri Pants for only $5! These normally cost $18, so you’re saving $13 on each pair with this clearance deal! You’ll also get free shipping with your order!

These George Women’s Comfort Capri Pants won’t be in-stock for very long, so I highly recommend that you look for your size now before it’s gone! There are several vibrant colours that you can choose from, including French blue, hot pink, teal, and black (well, black isn’t as vibrant and bright as the other colours, but it is a necessary option). Plus, you can always find a good use for extra clothes!

You can’t go wrong with a few extra pairs of Capri pants. When they’re only $5 each, it’s hard to not take advantage of such a deal! You can find many great uses for extra Capri pants – you can have some extra pairs to wear around your home, or when you’re doing things like painting. If you accidentally spill something on these Capris, you can take solace in the fact that you only spent $5 on them!

These Capri pants normally cost $18 at WalMart, so this is one spicy deal! Listed below is a brief review of these George Women’s Comfort Capri Pants from a satisfied WalMart customer:

I purchased three different coloured pairs of these capris as they are extremely comfortable and fit nicely.

Before these Capris are gone, you should check out this deal. I hope you all have a great Wednesday!

TD Mobile Payment: $25 Credit For Using App

Posted by on November 12, 2014 at 12:00 PM

TD Mobile Payment: $25 Credit For Using App

This is a good promo from Canadian banking. TD CanadaTrust has a time limited promotion for Android and Blackberry users. All you need to do is download the mobile app, link your credit card account to the app for the first time, make any purchase within the qualifying period and you will get a $25 credit to your account per smartphone in 2015. There isn’t a limit for the qualifying purchase. The $25 credit should appear on your February statement.

TD mobile app offers payment straight from your phone for small payments under $50, so you don’t have to worry about remembering to take out some cash or fiddling for your bank card, just place your phone on the sensor.

You can use it anywhere that has a contact-less payment system. A lot of fast food places and clothing stores have these in place. I worry sometimes about losing my wallet and someone using my cards, so I really like the idea that I don’t need to take my wallet for short trips anymore, just grab my keys and phone then off I go!

It also has some good security features to keep your bank and credit card details safe. I regularly give my phone to little ones to play some games. With this app you don’t have to worry if your child is playing games on your phone because when you open the app to use it it requests a secondary pass code that you set yourself before the app can be accessed, so even if the child knows the pass code to the phone itself they can’t get into the app. That pass code would also prove useful if your phone is lost or stolen and each transaction you make from the app is encrypted using a specialized smartphone SIM.

At the start of the gift buying season, this mobile app sounds like a good way to keep track of it all and pay for things easily. For trying it at least once you can take advantage of this promotion and if you spend $25 you will be getting it back. It is not only worth a try for the $25, which you could use for an extra gift or two, but also for the novelty of the bank adding money to your account for using it rather than taking it out for fees and services!

Here’s one I made earlier! I’ve been browsing Pinterest for some interesting, frugal and crafty designs which I can try out myself, for Christmas decorations. In the image above, you can see a decoration which I have crafted to hang on my Christmas tree. It’s simply made from some thread, some ribbon and some buttons! This pin was my inspiration for the above project.

I have a sewing box which is just filled to the brim with the perfect items for crafting, so I was able to make the above in 15 minutes, without spending a penny. However, if you don’t have all those craft materials at hand – keep an eye out in your local dollar store or craft store for bags of random buttons, which they might be selling at reduced prices. That’s exactly how I got my hands on the above buttons which I made into the mini-wreath for my tree.

How to make your Christmas button mini-wreath:

  • Put some thick thread on to a needle, and knot the first button on to the end of the string.
  • Thread on more buttons
  • When you think you have enough, sew it into a circle via the last button
  • Cut a slice of ribbon, tie it in a bow with a loop going upwards for hanging on the tree

Other ideas to expand on the above project:

  • Group the same colours of buttons together in one wreath to colour-coordinate, with matching ribbon.
  • Intersperse coloured beads through the buttons for some variation.
  • Give the kids the materials and get them to do it!

Have fun crafting!
