We believe in crafting a handmade holiday, making our own ornaments for our tree, baking and making as many gifts as we can. The holidays feel so much more special when there’s heart involved.
I’ve been thrilled to see that our daughter remembers last fall’s activities and now sees them as tradition. Come November she eagerly reminded me that we needed to start sewing ornaments for this years tree.
And so our home transforms into a Craft House with every surface covered with holiday projects, glitter, glue, feathers, felt, string, and stickers:
Here are some of the ornaments we’ve made, some from last year, many created in the last few weeks.
I love this time of the year.
+ Felt Christmas Tree Ornaments
+ Bird Ornaments (from Skip to my Lou)
+ Beaded wreath ornaments
+ Felted stars, wooden stars, and felt hearts
+ Popcorn garlands
+ Popsicle stick six pointed stars
+ Grape vine wreaths with tinsel and bells
Still to be made:
+ Dehydrated orange slices (try dehydrating ruby red grapefruit for a beautiful pink color!)
