Welcome to the month of happy & merry 🙂 Love having a handmade Christmas? then these DIY Paper snowflakes are a must try 🙂
Its been quite sometime I hit this space thanks to my busy life schedule. Or rather my laziness to blog! In fact I have been creatively more active than my usual being away from blogging because honestly, lets face it blogging is a rewardless process. I put up a post, like today, I am drafting a post on how to make these DIY Paper snowflakes , thinking its going to be useful for people this Christmas, when in reality, its going to take another 4 years to actually draw some traction or worse, this post might never get enough views!
A DIY is always fun and when its minimalist and chic, its absolute fun – presenting DIY wooden key hanger! Make these simple and functional key holder in under ten minutes.
If you have been following my blog, you sure wouldve seen my earlier version of keyholder that I made with a burlap panel. I had that burlap keyholder for a year around and now I needed a change. I got these pretty mirror collage mirrors from decorkart for my entryway and I needed a keyhanger much smaller so that I couldve eneough space for the mirror on that small wall.
Bring in holiday cheer in each corner of your home with these pretty 3D origami Christmas trees that can be used in holiday vignettes. Also they are pretty easy once you get the hang of the folds and I am sure will be fun activity to engage kids with this holiday season.
Every year for christmas, I sink in the work of making Christmas cards for friends and family that I get hardly anytime to craft. This is year was no exception in that matter but then again I have loads of ideas and I am going to keep my Christmas mojo going till end of January next year. Anyways, coming to today’s tutorial, its a very simple kids craft on how to make origami christmas trees. As kids, Christmas was always about decorating christmas trees and making nativity scenes. And I want this Christmas to be the same too- making Christmas trees with my daughter. My daughter is not old enough actually to try these Christmsa trees but I think I could try these this year and note down the tutorial with tips for her next Christmas! Okay lets start 🙂
Christmas is supposedly a very expensive season although everything you find is on sale. I generally purchase Christmas decor right after Christmas because that is when I reach home after my vacation and before that, I hardly get anything Christmassy in the market! So over the couple of years that we have made our home, I have collected loads of tree decoration items and I think my tree can’t withstand any more of the load 😛 This year, since my daughter has also grown up, we thought we should move more towards the religious side of the celebration instead of keeping it all Santa & Christmas trees. We call Christmas the Advent Season, running through 4 Sundays and culminates with Christmas that falls on the 25th of December. The advent candles, 4 of them, held within an advent wreath, is lit one by one every Sunday to remember and represent hope, peace, joy and love respectively. The tradition was started long back in Germany as a countdown to Christmas but later on has added so much value and tradition that it is an inevitable part of the celebration.
I love Christmas crafting especially with my daughter. We sat together, making these kids fingerprint christmas tree cards and had absolutely so much fun. Do you want to involve your kids in with the merry making this season? Rerad for the full tutorial 🙂 And also do not forget to browse through other popular Christmas craft and decor ideas 🙂
Every year I have great plans for Christmas and something or the other comes up and we have an absolutely normal Christmas every single year. This year too I had so much plans but I have 3 shutdowns at my office before Christmas and I have my course exams at the end of the month 🙁 Its like the universe is conspiring against me and my Christmas crafting 😛 But here is a little merry making episode we had last week – we as in me and Grace 🙂 As somebody said, colors and paints are the best friends of kids – not sure if chocolates could be as well but still 😛 I might have bought more colors in form of paint boxes, cakes, crayons, pencil colors and what not for grace than chocolates! I love the fact that she loves coloring and in fact I sometimes get amazed by her creativity. The other day she had to paint a flower pot in her school book and she colored it with all colors line after line and she told me its her rainbow pot. She is a brilliant kid and I let her be when it comes to coloring.
