{ A Handmade CHRISTmas }

Just a few ideas for making handmade items to give as CHRISTmas gifts.

Burlap "wedding wreath".

Burlap purchased 3 sheets in a pack at Wal-Mart.
Handmade rosettes hot glued to bottom of wooden frame.



Burlap stockings with felt appliques.


A crocheted scarf.....




Wood burned ornament.
(wood burning is my latest passion....
it because it's so much like coloring!)



This year's ornaments for our grand-kiddos!


A little owlie ornament made by one of our grand-boys out of acorns, bark and twigs and given to his Nannie because he knows how much she loves owls.

Oh, how I love that boy!

What about you?
Do you make any of your gifts?
Do you like to receive handmade items?

HOPE everybody has a great Monday.....

only one more before CHRISTmas!

  1. You're SO creative, Deb. I admire that in you.
    I do NOT have talent in that department, for sure!

  3. Love the little owlie! I have made home made gifts in the past. This year there is too much going on to do it and I just didn't start early enough.

  4. Oh those are all so wonderful! You are very talented. I am not so crafty. I keep thinking that now that I am retired I will start being more crafty, but so far it hasn't happened. Maybe NEXT year! LOL
