I have been super busy sewing my girls Christmas dresses. With all the ruffles, they seemed to take forever. I haven't had much time for crafts. Yesterday I finally had a few free minutes and whipped together some super simple, easy and cheap Christmas crafts.
First up I made these "snow" covered candles. This project seriously took me less than 5 minutes.
I was inspired by this post over at Raising Oranges.
Next I made some ornaments from 2 placemats that my mother-in-law was getting rid of.
I cut them up made ornaments out of them.
Some of them I just poked an ornament wire through ....
And others I hole punched and tied a ribbon to hang.
A few years ago I bought a couple 3' trees after Christmas on clearance. My kids have them in their rooms. These ornaments are for their trees.
I think this next one is my favorite. I absolutely love it.
I like it so much that I think I'm going to replace the Christmasy ricrac once Christmas is over so that I can still use them.
I got the idea from Baby Berry. Head on over there to find out how to do it. The only trouble I had was printing the music to the tissue paper. I ended up taping it to a regular piece of paper and then printing it.
The last project I have to share I actually made last year.
Pipe cleaner snowflakes
I think I used three pipe cleaners for each snowflake. I cut them in half. I twisted them over each other at the middle and added beads. It was fun to make different designs with the beads.
Stay tuned - next week is all about the Christmas goodies.
Linking up at these parties.
