So the place is getting decked, slowly but surely. The tree is up, the kitchen tree is up (yes, I am now that person) and I just have the buffet scenes to set up. I’ll take pictures but it’s going to be the same story as last year. I’ve been striving for this my whole life, a set of Christmas decorations that you use every year and that go in the same spot every year. Little traditions. So I’m not messing with them. I am working on a few new holiday craft projects to add to the mix but they’re far from done so I thought I’d show one of my favorites from last year.
did you know you can unroll cotton balls

these awesome old pipe cleaners I found at the resale shop + theresa’s post on cody foster and wondering how spun cotton ornaments are made + my current obsession with crazy vintage handmade ornaments = an oscar-free afternoon turning into a whirlwind of crazy ornament making activity! I unrolled cotton balls and used the strips of cotton to wrap up spools, wooden wheels, plastic eggs, anything I could find really and then glue gunned on little heads and buttons and birds, etc. so much fun! I could do this and only this for weeks and weeks but I have to force myself to put away the glue gun and get back to my christmas to-do’s.
