I saw this on Made by Rae and wanted to put some extra packing paper we had to good use. I used paint from a dollar store. I would not recommend it. It worked poorly and smelled like formaldehyde. Scary.
Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments
Nothing new or novel here, but it was a fun project to do with the kids. Ours didn't turn out that fabulous. I think I rolled the dough out too thin and then they stayed in the oven 40 minutes too long (it was The Preacher's responsibility to take them out. He's been forgiven). Hence, they have a bit of a curl. Next time I'll be more patient and just let them dry on the counter.
Felt Christmas Ornament
I'd love to have a Christmas tree full of handmade ornaments. For this one I used some lovely wool felt that my MIL gave me and followed this tutorial.
I've been working on these mittens for awhile and just finally finished them up this week. These are as plain as can be, but there's still something very satisfying about handknit mittens. They went into my son's hat and mitts bin, but they're a wee bit big for him yet.
I also finished up this wallhanging. The binding does add a lot and I'm happy to have it completed. I haven't hung it up yet and now I'm feeling more like I'll just put it away and be extra delighted to see it next December!
