Christmas Crafts & Recipes Of The Past...

Now that American Thanksgiving is over, I know a lot of you are looking for Christmas ideas & recipes to get started on. I know I'm always keeping my eyes peeled for new ideas! 

Since many of you have followed along since last December (Thank you!), today I'm doing a run-down of my favourite crafts, recipes, & projects from last Christmas.

Let's start with some fun crafts...

I still need to make one of these babies for myself! I made a few last year & sold them all. Must. Keep. One. :)

These little trees were so fun to discover as I pulled them out again this year. They're a fun part of our decor.

Possibly my favourite Christmas craft ever! I have these arranged on a wreath this year with some twinkle lights.
Let Heaven & nature sing...

Light Bulb Snowmen (with photo tutorial!)

Our kids get such a kick out of these snowmen every year. 
They love that they have one that is personalized & belongs to each one of us.

These sparkly cones are filling a metal lantern in my front entryway this year.

Now on to recipes...

Classic Sugar Cookies (No rolling or cutting needed!)

Merry Berry Cheese Bars (Cranberry Cheesecake Bars)

Almost Instant Buckeyes (Another fast one!)

Cards, tags, & gift card holders...

Use your Cricut or Silhouette to cut out some cute shapes, attach string & create your own gift tags!

Make your own simple gift card holder for those hard to buy for people.

Create a few custom made Christmas cards for your friends & family with these ideas.

Those are just my favourites! I hope you found some inspiration here.
