I have always loved crafts. When I was little my mom was always coming up with fun crafts we could do together and they are some of my favorite memories. One memorable year we made three nutcracker soldiers out of clay pots. It looked so simple but it was such a complicated project lol. They were so neat and we still have one of them today, the other two being given away as lovely handmade gifts.

Of course in college and stuff I was a bit busy with “serious art” and didn’t have any place to decorate hardly anyway. And then Pinterest came on the scene, and now I’m dying to make about a million different holiday crafts this year!

Cupcake Liner Carnations

How easy is this? And so cute!

Yarn Wreaths

I made a yarn wreath a few years ago that I donated, but I would love to have one to keep. This little snowman is so cute!

Book Pinwheels

It would be so cute to make a bunch of these for the tree, and inexpensive too.

Salt Dough

The other thing I’m loving is this salt dough tutorial posted by Simply Savannah Events. They would make the cutest ornaments!

So, are you a crafter? Have any good ones to share as we gear up for the holiday season?

    I'm usually pretty crafty and try to be resourceful, but lately I've been a little…lazy shall I say? Maybe the holidays is just what I need to get back into my groove!

  3. Those salt dough ornaments kind of remind me of the cinnamon ones my daughter and I made years ago. I found the "recipe" on Family Fun's website and used some tin cookie cutters to create different shapes. It was actually pretty easy to make and I loved that the house smelled of cinnamon.

      We did that too Michaela! My mom actually still has them and it amazes us that they still smell like cinnamon to this day. It was literally 15 years ago or more!

  4. I want to make one of those wreaths too… it looks so easy but I'm sure that's not the case =)
