~the best of the best Christmas crafts~

Hello hello!!

It's Wednesday a.l.r.e.a.d.y.....
crazy how the time is speeding by!

a bizillion Christmas craft ideas...
I'm hoping to have time  s  o  o  n   to
play & create....
here's a few that made the A list....

cute angel wings....
wouldn't these be sweet hanging on the tree?

I couldn't find a template for the wings....
but I think you could almost trace gently over
your computer screen, no?
probably a big no-no for sure....
otherwise maybe free hand it?

sticking with the book pages, newsprint theme
how about this darling little birdie ornament??
I love the little doily & button...
so cute!

here's a similar bird template you can
print & trace....
you can also go here to get it:

what I really really reeeaaallllyyy
want to make are these little bird ornaments....
this is from Lulu's tree

they are just precious ~ but I'm thinking they
would be quite time consuming & I need
a lot. of. them....

but who knows?  maybe the urge will
strike & I'll give it a whirl....:)

so what else is super cute, you ask??
I love this wax paper garland!!
so easy & looks dreamy on a tree
don't ya think?!

and how about wax paper garland
mixed with little paper birds??
ok...actually think that is button garland (down below)
but either way...cute!

ya got a lot of buttons in a jar somewhere?
I know you do....:)

this is the sweetest little button star....

I have no clue how they made this one, but
I'm thinking....cut a star out of super
sturdy cardboard....spray paint cream
if you like...and hot glue the buttons on!?

wouldn't this make a nice gift as well?
love all the different vintage buttons...

are you still with me??
are you bored yet??

ok then ~ just checking....:)

who has made these clay tags?
definitely want to try...

and can't forget about my cones....
so easy & darling...

AND cute to hang

ok I just a couple more!
got little ones??
I thought these were too cute!

and lastly cute little candy cane hearts.....
wanna make these too...
my goodness....too much to look at & make huh?

well I'm off to take my daughter Madi
to Drivers Ed...yikes...yep she's got
her permit now & is practicing


hope this inspires you to get crafting!

head on over to here
and here
to get instructions &

Happy crafting & creating....
