Handmade Christmas Part 2

I have posted some of these on Instagram but I haven’t said anything really about them, so now I’m going to talk about them.

These are not the best pictures, they were taken with my phone, but still pretty good for a phone inside with low light. This is what happens when you let your son use the AA batteries out of your camera as missiles for his GI Joes Jeeps. If the meaning of “let” is not yelling at him after you find out he has already done it and lost said batteries somewhere in the great chaotic abyss of his room.

This is the sight that greeted me Monday morning at work, sitting on my desk. Yummy!! Someone likes me.

Yay! Defective Jelly Belly Jelly beans are the best.

Salt Dough Ornaments

The salt dough ornaments we made turned out perfectly this time. We made hand prints, ornaments of the kids, and other decorations. 1 cup flour, 1 cup salt, and 1 cup water was the formula we used. Baked at 200 degrees for 2 hours. And of course we had to make a pig for Carebear. She actually made this one out of a ghost cookie cutter.

We used a straw to make the holes for hanging.

We couldn’t find a paintbrush to paint with so we colored them with crayons while they were still warm. The crayons melted and created an weird glassy wax effect. It looks cool. Some were drew on with colored pencils.


Our Fridge. The idea came from facebook. I love it! I cut cloth out and taped it to the fridge.

Also an idea from facebook. This is just ornaments hung with ribbon from a decorative archway in the playroom. These didn’t last long. They became punch balls, bullseyes, or twirly balls each time the kids passed them.
