Oh Hey, It's Five on Friday: Christmas Crafts

Still have the energy and time and patience to craft? I certainly don't. We've really switched gears to the baking portion of our holiday fun now though, but I'm hoping we can do some or all of these next Christmas. They are definitely a little advanced for Aria's age. She will be three next year though, so three sounds like the popsicle reindeer age, yes?

If you are looking for some extra cute and simple Christmas crafts I'd definitely add these ones to your list, or like me bookmark them for next year and cross your fingers you actually remember when the time comes.

1. Popsicle Reindeer Ornaments via Crafts by Courtney.

2. Candy Cane Ornaments via Rhinos to Rugrats.

3. Sled Ornaments via ANDIAMO.

4. Clay Ornaments via Tips from a Typical Mom.

5. DIY Winter Window Clings via artsy-fartsy mama.

Six days until Christmas....that escalated quickly, didn't it?

  9. I was just thinking about that candycane ornament the other day. I'm pretty sure my mom still has the one I made that was just like that! And that reindeer is adorable!

  11. I'm with you - no time/patience for crafting right now. So far I've tried one Christmas craft: clay handprint ornaments. They look alright now, but I have a feeling they will break as soon as I move them, so they've been sitting on the kitchen counter for the last half week. Oh well, baking is more rewarding than crafting ;) Just wish I could eat the dough!!

  13. I remember making the popsicle reindeer and candy cane ones when I was little. I *think* Marcus might be old enough to tackle at least one of those crafts next year!
