Christmas Preparations: Homemade Decorations

Every December Elliot and Ellis each get to choose 1 special ornament. This is loads of fun when Target gets their first batch of Christmas decor and it’s a winter wonderland at the back of the store. But something about December and Christmas makes us want to create our own and put our craft supplies to good use.

One thing I suggest is to craft when you feel happy; avoid crafting when hangry. This gets everyone mad and every spill and tear feel like the end of the world. Nibble on some favorite snacks, guzzle your preferred drink, have steady supply of glue gun refills, and keep a craft wastebasket nearby.

This post is my entry for Something to Ponder About Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Christmas Preparations. Thank you for hosting this challenge!

Popsicle stick’s tree.
Cork tree with sparkly stars. Trunk was too heavy and wouldn’t stick.
Can you guess which one is homemade? Ellis helped with the stuffing and sewing.
Garland made out of wood craft shape and sparkly stickers. Rare for me but I spaced out each square 4 in. Slight determination to make it less random!
