crafty Christmas

November 18, 2012

Last weekend we hosted a Christmas crafting party especially for some of our friends that have kids. I wanted to share some ideas for making holiday decorations that are inexpensive, fun and pretty too.  I was so glad that our guests left with a few Christmas tree decorations they made themselves plus inspiration to spare.


I spent two weeks prior to the party assembling the pre-cut, ready-to-assemble supplies needed for the crafting stations.  And when it was all over, there were still some supplies remaining (bonus for me :))  So I started experimenting with some of the paper shapes and was particularly drawn to this 8-point star.  It’s so festive!!


I’ve taken my old favorite paper shapes and changed it up a tiny bit with paint and string.


The wonderful thing about all of these decorations is that they’re made entirely from supplies you probably already have on hand – junk mail post cards and brown paper bags.


I just add a few tiny beads and a spray of glitter paint.


While I was cutting out these hex shapes I took a turn down a new path and started making votive candle crowns.  I’ll have to add these to the blog soon, they’re just adorable.


Many thanks to everyone who joined us for our crafty Christmas gathering – it was so much fun!

    I love ’em! And I love that you put it together so kiddos AND adults could play.
    How fun.
