FUN HOLIDAY CRAFT PROJECTS AND MERRY CHRISTMAS


This December we have seen a lot of rain where I am and very little sun. From a blogger's perspective, that's not a very good thing. The sunlight is important to take decent project photos. Although I can't complain too much. We have also been experiencing higher than normal temperatures all month long. So far we can expect rain again for Christmas. Imagine if all that rain were really snow...!

So that being said, and the fact that there's still a few gifts to wrap, stockings to stuff, and cookies to bake, I'm calling it done for craft projects until after Christmas. I'm sure glad I took the time in November when the weather cooperated a little bit more to cross some projects off my list. This post recaps those projects in case there is one or two that you missed.

One of my earliest projects was these snowy tree globes. It didn't take much to make them - a little gold paint, some bottle brush trees, and white pom poms - but I LOVE them. I've wrapped two to give away, and next year I plan to make a few more. They are easy, adorable presents, and in my mind elegant too!

If you're looking for a fun craft to do with kids, consider these paper ball ornaments. They are fun, easy, and you can make several in an hour. I hung mine up on this coat rack, and I love looking at them every time I walk through my back door.
