Christmas Crafts-- Pt. 1

'Tis the season for crafting!

We decided that since Finn was here and we aren't planning on anymore babies, it was time to really get on the ball with starting some family traditions... no excuses! I purchased the supplies to do these a couple of weeks ago, but as it goes with three kids, it got put off and put off.

Tim helped my wrangle kids as we got down and dirty today! Here is what we came up with, most of the ideas found on Pinterest!

A rag wreath!

Handprint ornaments!
A footprint in Finn's case :)

And a sneak peak at gifts for the kid's friends.
Personalized art aprons!
(but there is more... just can't share the rest)

A tree on canvas-
Keelin's hand is on the bottom.
Jackson's hand is in the middle.
Finn's feet are on top!
I did the star and the ornaments are the kid's fingerprints.

Are you doing any crafts?

I love the christmas tree hands and feet! I did a rag wreath last year with the colors we do for our christmas tree- I put it outside on the porch and it does just lovely there. I love the colors you did with it <3

Tia, I did the wreath to go with the house... since I think I might just leave it up :) hehe
