Have you made anything for Christmas
While "thumbing" through Pinterest I
saw some easy things to make. Now
to find time to make these.
1. Fill a salt shaker with a bit of
faux snow, put a little bottle brush
tree down inside, place lid on the
shaker and tie some baker's string
around the lid.
2. Paint scraps of wood white, put
a face on the front, tie a scarf
around the middle and you have
a Snowman. Make several.
3. Turn a yard stick into a tree
by cutting the stick into pieces
and arrange in a tree (triangle
shape.) Don't forget the trunk.
Glue on the surface of your
choice or tie the sticks together.
4. Paint flower pots to resemble
Santa, Snowman, Elf -add a jingle
collar. Fill with candy and give to
family and friends.
5. Turn old corks into trees by
painting the ends green, glue
into a triangle shape and add
a hanger. Decorate the ends of
several corks, stack most to 5, 4
3, 2, 1 on top of each other and
glue together. Add a trunk.
There you have it. Happy crafting.

These are neat ideas and would be fun to do with students in the classroom. In answer to your question, I cross stitched an ornament for everyone on our Christmas list. I love giving handcrafted gifts.ReplyDelete
