Merry Craftmas and Fleece Navidad

December 24, 2009

What do you do when you discover that ALL of your Christmas decorations are buried in the storage facility??? Why… craft up what you need of course!

This year’s tree is smaller than in years past… we were able to borrow a tree stand from a friend fortunately and crafted our decorations!  The star is cardboard and glitter of course (such easy kid-friendly crafting there)… and why not get in touch with our history by creating a cranberry and popcorn garland… The kids all made ornaments at school, and here at the house out of simple paper and tape in most cases!

For stockings I had a bag of fleece leftovers from various sewing projects and quickly whipped up a unique stocking for each of us…

I’m certain that this is the Christmas the kids will look back on and remember for years and years to come…

    Would your blog name be pronounced “Insanity” or “Insane Knitty”?

    I think it’s fabulous. I haven’t thought of paper chains or popcorn garland in years! Love it. The kids will definately remember. g

    We always had a 2nd smaller Christmas tree that we got to decorate with anything we wanted. The family tree has always had collector’s Disney ornaments. I love the popcorn garlands. We always ate more than we managed to string!

    What a sweet, old-fashioned Christmas tree! And you know what? I do remember making paper chains and popcorn garland… your kiddos will too!
