Crafty Claus

It’s December, if you haven’t noticed, and I CAN’T STOP CRAFTING!  A lot of the crafts I can’t post because they’re Christmas presents, but here are a few I can.  I was going to take pictures and write up some how-to’s on these but after taking exactly one picture—this one:


…I thought to myself, “This is ridiculous,” and I just made the crafts sans pictures or directions.  If you really want to know how to make one let me know and I’ll see if I can find it deep within myself to accommodate you.

First up: Santa Claus hot cocoas for Rocco’s class:


Next: thank-you cards made with oil pastels:


And my favorite this year: beaded sets of serving spoons/forks for teacher gifts.  The boys loved making these so much we just might cover our entire set of silverware with beads!


Anyway, happy crafting…or if it’s not your thing, enjoy your much neater and less anxiety-driven weekend.


*Ideas stolen from: my sister, my mom, and my SIL, respectively.  Thanks for letting me steal!
