Thanksgiving Crafts

I love Thanksgiving! Any holiday that helps me to step back and thank God for my blessings is fine by me.

Plus there’s pie.

I’m thankful for creative people who share their ideas with the world.

Christmas Ornaments

Christmas will be here before we know it, so I thought we’d take a break from the autumn crafts today, and get our winter craft on. My new friend Athina at Craftaholic wrote this great post for me. Love her!

Oh, Christmas! The most wonderful time of the year! Lights everywhere, snow, singing, exchanging gifts! And of course, decorating your home is a major and really important part! Who doesn’t love to sit by a big Christmas tree decorated with cute ornaments and many, many little lights?

Today, I’d like to share with you a few ideas! All ornaments are made of felt, my absolutely favorite material! I fell in love with felt the minute I touched it! The things you can make with it are endless! You can find all these in my shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Craftaholicgr

Little Christmas trees in a variety of colors! Combinations of red and white, pink and green, white and pink!

Cute little penguins! Aren’t they adorable?

A snowman can’t be missing from your Christmas tree! Look at him, all happy, with his big smile and his blue scarf!

What’s Christmas without a reindeer? He comes in two sizes, big and small!

I shouldn’t forget to show you the Russian dolls! Happy faces and beautiful colors! They will make your day!

I’m saving the best for the end…. A very very special ornament for every mommy! Embroidered on the penguin’s tummy are the words “Baby’s first Christmas 2012” to remind you of your first Christmas with your precious angel!

I hope you liked these ideas! For any questions you can find me at athinakarg@hotmail.com.
