"Rockin' around the Christmas tree," "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire," "Have yourself a merry little Christmas..."
Everyone says it's the most wonderful time of the year, and I'll have to agree! With hot cocoa in one hand and scissors in the other, I've been a shopping, crafting, singing, decorating bundle of Christmas joy! I'm not sorry either. The grinches can just head right back up their mountain because this little Who from Whoville isn't letting anything ruin her Christmas season!
So, who's ready for some of the best Christmas crafts and DIY's ever!? I've already made the peppermint bath salts as several gifts for the women in my family, and you know I couldn't resist trying them out for myself! You can read all about it below!
Did you know you can make your own bath salts? It never occurred to me until I found this post by the Frugal Girls! I thought they looked like the perfect stocking stuffer for the women in my family, so I decided to test them out. Long story short... they were amazing and I made five full mason jars to give as gifts!
Look at these little guys! Don't you want to just grab em' up and give em' a hug? These would be perfect with a little fake snow around them in a child's room or right in the living room. Either place is a great choice!
I remember making these ornaments as a kid with my mom and grandma! It was such a special time! We made basketballs, gingerbread men, and all sorts of little doodads! I recall wanting to eat them, which of course, you can't! Still, this is a great craft for everyone in the family. You can make anything you want with salt dough!
I love bringing in natural, earthy tones for Christmas, and this twig snowflake fits the bill perfectly! You can find this stuff right in your front yard or at the local park! That's as free as it gets! It's an easy tutorial too!
This little woodland necklace wasn't created specifically for Christmas, but it feels Christmas-y to me and I think it would make a lovely ornament for the tree! Like the snow globes above, you can be creative and do whatever you want with it! Any Christmas scene would look wonderful!
Here's another awesome way to reuse old clothes you may have laying around. These cloth snowflakes are perfect for hanging on the tree or from the ceiling, and no one says they have to be white! You could use red and green for a festive look as well!
I love these place mats because they're open to so much creativity! You could make a stencil for anything you wanted! These are my favorite kinds of crafts because you have the power to do whatever you like!
I don't know what it is about snowflakes, but I love them! As long they don't accumulate into four feet wonderland, I'll keep making snowflakes in every fashion, from t-shirt scraps to Popsicle sticks!
