Christmas Advent craft pictures part 1

Here are some of the projects that we have done so far with our craft advent (you can read about it here). I will admit that planing a craft a day was a little ambitious. Because of other things we have not been able to do a craft everyday but the days we have been able to have been fun. Here is what we have done so far.
(Note: I am linking up with Living With Lindsay)

Ornament wreath.
I am not to crazy about the way the bow on top looks but it was all we had and the girls love it so that is all that matters.

Snowflake card holder.
I have really fallen in love with this. I found a pack of foam snowflakes at the dollar store and 2 1/2 in. ribbon. I hot glued the ribbon between two snowflakes. Then I glued clothespins every 3 inches or so. The ribbon is about 3 feet long. It turned out really great.

Bedroom door wreaths.
The kids really love being able to decorate their doors.

Christmas tree Christmas cards.
These will be the ones we send out this year. They loved doing them.

The was supposed to be a cranberry wreath but we could not find fake cranberries so I substituted it with flat back red glass gems. It turned out very pretty.

Thats all we have done so far. I will post more as we (hopefully) get them done.

Thanks for looking


  1. Oh my goodness, you are HUGELY ambitious. Kudos to you - I love that snowflake card holder, I might have to make me one of those.

  2. Ooooooooh, I love the wreaths! I'm a huge wreath fan. I'd love to have them on all our windows but I think even the thought of hanging them would make my husband run screaming for the hills.

  3. Too cute! I wish I had the patience to do more crafts!

  9. You are so incredibly crafty. I used to do this, I have a hard time finding the time, but I need to start!

  10. That is such a fun thing to do! If my kids were crafty (which I am SOOOO sad they are not), we would do this. I'm going to pass it along to my sisters.

  11. Oh, wow, I love that ornament wreath! And the card runner thing... I dont have a mantle this year (construction on new home) so I dont have anywhere to put my cards this year! :( I need one of those!
