I thought that today I would share with you Christmas crafting ideas that have worked for me in the past to make my lovely Romantic Farmhouse Christmas shine.
A few years ago I challenged my shelf to make all of the ornaments for Christmas out of what I had at home. I saved cereal boxes and other cardboard for several months to make these great ornaments. To see how to make them click here.
Every Christmas season I like to have on hand some small trinket to hand out to visitors or when you are in need of an extra gift for someone. I adore Victorian cones. Making them were really fun. I had lots of scrapbook paper and little extras to make them. Then I filled them with wrapped chocolates. My grands even took a filled cone to their school teachers. They were a big hit.

I had always wanted to make a coffee filter wreath. They work up very fast and have lovely results. In fact I sold this one in my little shop and it was one of the first items to go. Click here for the tutorial and more.
This year for my decor I gave myself a huge challenge. Because my finances are at a stand still I have no extras for buying anything for my decor, but the good Lord gave me a gift to create so I am reworking all of my Christmas decor and have come up with a beautiful French Brocante Christmas. I will be sharing it shortly after Thanksgiving.
Until then I will continue to share some of my past Christmas crafting.
Have a lovely weekend!
