Holiday Crafts

by Crystal on December 14, 2011

Hi friends!   I am apologizing again for my absence on this blog.  I haven’t quite figured out how to keep the posts consistent, it’s a working progress.   How do all the other crafty bloggers do it?!?  I hope one day I will be one that can post something awesome a few times a week! 🙂

So since its December I would like to share with you a few Christmasy things that I have made recently.

The first is an ornament that I made for my family’s  annual ornament exchange.  I love how it turned out! I couldn’t afford the frames at $6 a piece so I decided to make a mold and created my own using epoxy .  I think I have found a new crafty thing to enjoy!  I found an image of the kids on the sled and cut it out of vinyl.  The rest of the items to make the ornament are normal scrapbook supplies.

Here is another simple ornament that I made to sell in a boutique.  These couldn’t be any easier.  I cut up a 2×4 to about 4in in length, painted them, added a vinyl saying then added the wire for the hanger.

Do you love chunky wood letters like I do?  Here is a JOY shelf sitter for you to love as much as I do!  I had my brother cut these letters out on his cnc router (makes everything soo much easier) and I used scrapbook paper, spray glitter and mod podge and created a very fun and festive shelf sitter.

Last would be a framed vinyl tree.  I used a spare frame laying around that my handy hubby made, added the vinyl word tree that I created and some scrapbook paper to create a very fast Christmas decoration.

I hope that you have been able to be crafty this holiday season.  It’s always fun to add another item to the collection of decorations.

Have a Great Day!

All your stuff is so cute! No wonder you haven’t had lots of time to blog — you have been busy, busy, busy!

I love your Christmas ornaments, I bought several from the Scrapbook Barn. As talented as you are, I have no doubt you would be an awesome sculptor. We will have to get together and have a paper clay crafting day.

Paper clay would be fun to try. I have seen so many cute things made from it! I really don’t think I can sculpt though, I can’t even draw. lol
