My hope in sharing this, is that what I'm doing will inspire and get you excited about this season as well as your giving me ideas of your own!
*Note: Some of these crafts/gifts will have tutorials (or at least a link to one) some of them won't. None of these things are meant to be stressful and frenzied.
Even though I am posting the first one a day late, I did do it Dec. 1st. It was just way late by the time I decided to go to bed and I just didn't feel like I had the stamina to do a post that late. So here's my 24 days till Christmas craft
Sorry about the lighting...it was late and I'm having trouble with the lighting on my camera, but here is a tutorial. I always wondered how to make these myself:
Make a flower pattern and cut out six
Sitch a large basting stitch in a circle in the center
\Pull so flower gathers on underside. Wrap thread around several time and stitch into position
Tack on a pin, voila!
what took the most time for this one, was cutting out the flower
Total time: approx. 1/2 hourIdeas for gift giving:
