Christmas Crafty {Re-Cap}

Because I’m not ready to talk about resolutions or goals or the likes for 2013 …

AND

Because it is still very much “Christmas” at my house, I’m going to stick with holiday posts for a few more days, okay?

Mid-December I posted about a handful of ‘crafts’ I hoped to get done before Christmas and here is where I post on how successful I was::

Sugar Snow Globes – SUCCESS

These were SO quick and easy. We ended up making 4 of them all together. I did two with my Niece-in-law and two with my Little.

A few notes:

  • Use E-6000 glue to glue your pieces to the lid of your jar {let them dry overnight before adding sugar and sealing the rim/lid}. I did hot glue on the first two and it did not hold after a week or so {yet the E-6000 I used around the rim of the jar to seal it DID work … which led to me having to break the jars to get the pieces out}.
  • The wider the lid, the more details you can add.
  • I bought both the trees and deer at Hobby Lobby in their dollhouse section.

Happy Holidays felt garland – SUCCESS

This was such a fun project. I ended up taking it for my ‘ornament/decoration’ exchange with my Bunko group. I purchased my felt from the fabulous Benzie Bazaar. One of my Julep boxes made the perfect wrapping {I up-cycled the ribbon, crinkle paper & polka dot bag. My monthly maven box from Julep is a party in itself!}. I included the small clothespins and {2} twine for hanging.

Here is where it ended up::

So cute, right? It now lives at Kelly’s home and I love it!

Book Page Paper Chain – SUCCESS

This is really hard to get a good picture of since it’s around my kitchen window. I love, love, love this super simple craft and plan to keep it up through January and then maybe switch to this heart version in February.

I ran out of time for the Vintage Spool Garland & Twine Snowman … I figure 3 out of 5 isn’t bad at all and considering I also knocked out some handmade gifts {yep, that post is coming}.

Did you craft this holiday season? What was your favorite?
