    Pinecone Christmas Ornaments

    We gathered quite a few pine cones this year so thought it will be good to have a go at transforming them in decorations for our Christmas tree. First I painted them – Some in white and some in gold. I left them on the counter to dry for a couple of days and than the really fun part started. You can let your little ones help you with painting as its a fairly easy job to do. My girls adore colouring: I tried out ribbons in different colours to decorate the pine cones. Everything I had around the house really – pink, white and gold and gold or simply…

    Pom Pom Christmas Tree Cards

    My girls love crafting and unfortunately I don’t do it enough with them. It is hard to keep occupied a 4 year old and a 7 year old with the same craft. But they love pom poms and these ones are really cute! And this is how the idea of these cute Christmas tree cards came up. We had to make some new cards to send to our relatives all around the country and the world. I found these mini pom noms in one of our local shops last summer but even since than I knew that I will use them for some kind of Christmas craft. Supplies To Make…

    Tin Snowman Craft and 30 Christmas Ornaments

    We are getting close to Christmas now and I can’t believe is like less than two months away. Time is passing fast when you are busy I guess. My girls favourite activity in the cold days of autumn or winter is to do crafts with their mother. They know as well as me that I am not the most inspired when it comes to it but I am lucky as they don’t upset. They know that mummy can get inspired easily from the books she already owns from her good friend Maggy Woodley – Red Ted Art: Cute and Easy Crafts for Kids and the new ebook 30 Christmas Ornaments and from her…

Well is not yet december but thought that is time to show you our craft.   Supplies: egg carton green and red paint pipe cleaners brushes scissors Instructions: If you plan to let your kids cut the cartoons and they are quite young like mine (under 7) are then you should cut the little “cups” yourself.

    Making Crepe Paper Christmas Trees

    This years Christmas crafts seem to have a theme: crepe paper! So while making the Christmas wreath i thought that a good idea was to make Christmas trees as well.

Stick the side with double side sticky paper. Cut any extra paper so that your cone can sit on the table. If you are happy with the shape start cutting long streams of gold and silver (…
