A Crafty Christmas

We really got crafty around the Best Things household this year!  It felt so special to have homemade decorations, presents, and food all around this Christmas.  We made these place cards/take home ornaments for our Christmas day dinner.  And when I say “we”, I really mean it.  Mr. Best Things is a fantastic crafter.  Lucky, eh?

Here’s another one of the homemade Christmas cards we sent out.  I love receiving the texts from friends saying they received them, and they’re thinking of us too.  Makes all that hard (but fun!) work worthwhile.

This is probably what I’m most proud of.  We made our own wreath for less than $20.  We just bought a wooden circle, covered it with ribbon and then hot glued dollar store Christmas balls on it.  We were both covered in hot glue and glitter afterwards; the telltale signs of a fun project.

I did a cookie exchange at work and got to really nail down a recipe for Peanut Blossoms.  Here they are before getting baked.

And of course, I crocheted my little heart out and sent off some hats to friends for presents.  Here I am working on a hat in the dressing room!  I also managed to make myself an army green neck warmer!

Did you get crafty this Christmas?
