Do You Love The Idea of A Handmade Christmas . . .
But dread the thought of a bunch of unfinished projects? This week I’m sharing easy, simple gift ideas that EVERYONE will love and ANYONE can do! So far I’ve covered edible gifts and luxurious beauty products. . . now we’re going to talk about gifts for your little cowboy/astronaut/princess/duck herder!
Okay, raise your hand if you rode off into the sunset with a hobby horse growing up. They’re the best, right?
Well then, grab a sock and recreate the magic for your little buckaroo with this simple tutorial from Dandee Designs! Seriously, this was fun to make and a big hit with both kids!
Okay, Micah used it as a walking stick, but even though I wondered if it was too “old-fashioned,” Katie seriously loved it! She thinks it’s for her cousin Conner, and it is. Of course there are two more tucked away in the closet, and I’m totally thinking of making one more so we can all gallop from Lantern Waste to Cair Paravel together.
Playdough With Natural Dyes
Ohhh, Kate, you are so close to convincing me to hone some crafty-type skills so I can make these bohemian-style dancing bell anklets! I think I need an intervention. HELP!
(Deep breath. Sigh. Moving on.)
Admit it. You gaze at projects on Pinterest for hours and then remember you can’t sew. Guess what – today is your day! If you can tie your shoes you can make these easy peasy felt cookies from The Happy Housewife .
They’re the perfect addition to your dress-up tea parties with “The Queen” and/or play kitchen bake-offs. Love the sprinkles, don’t you?
I have two words for you:
