Holiday Crafts

Though it can be difficult to find time for crafting during the busiest time of the year, I do love holiday crafts and keep a Pinterest board chalk full of ideas so that when I am ready, I know where to go to find inspiration!  Last year, my craft of choice was this burlap owl ornament.  Even today, a year later, it continues to be one of my most pinned items on Pinterest!

This year, my inspiration is the December issue of Better Homes & Garden.  Here are a few of my favorite ideas:

 Scarf Wreath

Do you have an old wool scarf lying around?  Give it a new purpose as holiday décor – no knitting required!  With the help of a glue gun, ribbon and greenery – this is a fun & fast holiday craft you can easily complete in an afternoon.

Use paper and craft scraps to make unique gift-wrap accents

To make this, simply take cupcake liners in different sizes and colors, layer them one on top of the other, starting with the largest at the base.  Secure each layer with glue.  Cut “petals” into the outer most layers.

Colorful Pinecones

Take ordinary pinecones up a notch my dipping them in paint!  Dilute acrylic or any craft paint with a little water. Dip the pinecones until coated.  Let dry on wax paper.  Repeat the process if you want deeper color.
