I had a horrible disappointment this morning. Not only did I have to come to grips on waking up that is was not, in fact, Saturday yet, but when I walked out to my car to head to work I was greeted with this horrific sight:
Needless to say, I was flabbergasted. Flummoxed. Dumbstruck. Severely disappointed that the weatherman would allow this to happen. Not cool weatherman, not cool.
The snow did serve to put me in mind of Christmas time. That got me to thinking about crafting. That got me to looking on Pinterest for projects I want to complete this Christmas season and THAT got me to posting about it for you (it was kinda like if you give a mouse a cookie, if you get my drift).
Over Thanksgiving, Kevin’s mom gave me some gorgeous silver candlesticks. I’d love to make some of these tissue paper trees (via) and display them on the dining room table. The hubs and I have set a $10 budget/project for all of our projects this season but I think I could easily do this project for under that.
I think these cut outs (via)are adorable and would so cute hung up behind the couch! They’d be easy to make with some old shoebox lids, some spray paint, and an Exacto knife.
I know that we will 100% for-sure be making these adorable salt dough gift tags for our homemade Christmas gifts (via). I can’t wait to post about what we’re making, but I’m afraid that we’ll have to wait until after (or at least closer to) Christmas in order to keep it a secret from our family and friends. I think these will be gorgeous with the imprint of evergreen branches and snowflakes on one side and names on the other. The best part is they will double as ornaments!
Finally, I’m equally as sure that I’ll be making one of these adorable Golden Snitch ornaments (via)! I plan on hiding it in the tree. You’re meant to have to look for the Snitch, right? I can just imagine having finding the Snitch in the tree that as a tradition when Kevin and I have kids (because they will like Harry Potter as much as us, of course… or they’ll be grounded).
What Christmas projects are you working on? Have you finished decorating yet? Sent out Christmas cards?
