I am truly thankful to have the job I have. Almost every one of my days in December will be filled with dozens upon dozens of smiling faces, laughing and crafting in their holiday finest. There is nothing I enjoy more.
With this in mind I bring you some of my favorite winter crafts from my site.
Sweets and Treats
Candy Topiary Trees - These are great for decor. If you want them for snacking, try using cut toothpicks or pasta instead of pins to hold the candy in place.
Marshmallow Turkey - These make perfect place card settings at your Holiday meal
Candy Sleigh - These would be cute as little favors for your next party.
Candy Cane Rudolph - This classic candy treat is great to give out as a favor, tied to the top of a present, or sticking out of a stocking on Christmas morning.
Ornaments and Decor
Coffee lid ornaments - Recycling never looked so stylish, hanging on your tree or mantel.
Coffee lid snow globe - 7-11 better watch their slushie lids - these crafts are just too cute to pass up!
Paper Cone Angel - Make a series of these for the tree or place small electric candles underneath to make adorable mantel lights.
T.P. Tube Nutcracker - Not only are these a fun craft and great decor, but you can also make an army of them and play games like bowling, by using a rolled up pair of socks for the ball.
Duct tape wreath - This durable and beautiful wreath is a great project for the entire family.
Pinecone Bird Feeder - Surprise the nature lover in your family with a gift for the birds. Place it outside a common window and watch your feathery friends enjoy a wintery snack.
Customized Bath Salts - who wouldn’t enjoy a nice long soak in the tub on Christmas day. Pamper the ones you love with these homemade salts layered in recycled glassware.
Here’s hoping these ideas get you into a Holiday mood without breaking the bank!
