Christmas Crafts! DIY!


So I want to start off by saying Pinterest is beyond addictive.
However I'm sure most of my crafty-blogger friends are already aware of this.
I'm positive not so sure the Pinterest app for my iPhone was the right choice...

With Christmas being right around the corner I've been busy...
My 'Deck The Halls' board is full of Christmas crafts, treats, DIY projects and home decor!

Take a look at some of my DIY Christmas creations! :)
I decided that I wanted to make gift tags! ^ I thought these would be perfect to attach to Christmas presents, Christmas tins filled with cookies, or any other gift items!

All you need: Holiday stamps, ink, cardboard, string and jewels.

If you didn't already know, I'm a nanny who is always looking for fun ways to entertain my kiddies! {Thanks Pinterest!} I saw these adorable, little Reindeer and knew they would be a big hit! They were so simple and easy to make and the kids loved playing with them!

All you need: Cardboard, red foam paper, plastic eyes, brown construction paper.

Since I'm obsessed with Christmas and loved having a countdown chart when I was a kid I couldn't pass up this idea when I saw it! I copied the poem, traced and cut out the hat and beard and let the kids do the decorating! I think it turned out great! :)

If you can't see the poem it says:
"Santa's beard is very bare. On his chin, there is no hair.
So each day, add one puff so white and when they're all on, he'll come that night!"

We started on December 1st!

All you need: Construction paper, scissors and glue!

This last one I did just for fun! :) I love all of the pre-Christmas festivities so I thought it would be cute to make my own list of cut outs!

All you need: Pen, paper, and creativity!

Are you feeling festive yet?!

    policy of our lives, entertainment has also become popular in the course.
    This app is free these days. The site provides a little fun and entertainment for the platform is also
    being mulled.

  16. This is because the magic wand does not actually select the full range of colors very well, making it impossible to delete the color in a clean manner.
