CHRISTMAS crafts starting on a Halloween table cloth!
Well, ain't this something? Surprise, my lazy self has not taken our Halloween stuff up, before starting a neat Christmas craft with the grands! We cut up pieces of magazine pics in different color groups, and I drew out a crazy looking big old Christmas tree with packages underneath. I cut out strings of pearls from the magazine and we used them for garland, and drew a star on top to fill in, and round ornaments. Emily (age 4) is using colored pencils (her choice), as the mosaic doesn't seem too interest her too much. The whole family is getting in on the act, and adding whatever we wish. It is a lot of fun for them, and of course, it will be hung with pride, when completed.
When I was a kid, one of our neighbors had a large picture frame, and it had a felt Christmas tree as the picture, with beautiful old costume jewelry ornaments and I can still remember how beautiful it was in my eyes! I have always wanted to make one. Do any of you have something like that (in your past)that you wish you could also re-create?
