Well, apparently I wasn’t joking about putting up a few things I’ve seen on Pinterest that have intrigued me/inspired me/made me think about heating up my glue gun.
Or maybe have just made me swoon with envy.
And so I’m sharing a few of them with y’all today. Who knows? Maybe I’ll actually accomplish a few of these things at my house before Christmas is over.
Or maybe I’ll just think about it and call it a day.
Oh Pinterest. You make me want to be a better person.
1. Christmas Button Trees
I think this is adorable. And would be fairly easy to do if only we had some buttons around the house.
2. Gorgeous front entry
I’ll accomplish this just as soon as we move into a house with double front doors and I’m ambitious enough to get the pumpkins off my porch before December 12th.
I wish I was joking.
3. Christmas Card Display
This? I might really do this with the pile of Christmas cards that are currently sitting in the middle our kitchen island.
4. Santa Snack Bags
In theory I think it would be so adorable if I made these for all the kids in Caroline’s class in time for the Christmas party. But I think we all know that probably isn’t going to happen unless I happen to find myself jacked up on amphetamines with a stash of red hots, cotton balls and marshmallows.
And since that seems like an unlikely scenario, it would appear chances are good that each child will just get a single candy cane with a bow tied on it.
5. Fun wreath
I would love to make this exact wreath to hang on Caroline’s bedroom door all year round. And then make one in red and green to hang on our back door during Christmas. Especially since our back porch is sadly lacking in festiveness right now.
6. JOY Pots
Well, this looks easy enough.
7. Reindeer Pops
I made a version of these for Valentine’s Day a few years ago. Except they weren’t reindeers. Because that would have been weird.
8. Chocolate Reindeer Donuts
I thought these might be cute to make for Caroline for breakfast on Christmas Eve. Because a well-balanced breakfast of chocolate donuts with a peanut M&M filler is an important way to start the day.
9. Handprint Nativity
I am a sucker for anything that uses a kid’s handprints to create some sort of craft. Because you just know that someday you will pull out the Christmas wreath they made out of handprints and marvel at how they were ever that little and find yourself crying next to the Christmas tree while singing “Sunrise, Sunset” from Fiddler On the Roof.
Purely hypothetical scenario.
10. O Holy Night
I first saw this on my friend Holly Mathis’s blog. Probably because this is a picture of her mantle. And I adore it. ADORE. Hers happens to be on canvas, but you can read this post she wrote to find out how to get a printable version.
Or you can find a similar canvas at Red Letter Words right here. I might be wishing for this for Christmas. I think it would look super classy hanging next to the Antelope of the Lord.
