Bird Nest Ornament (Old German Tradition)

I wanted to make a special ornament for my mother-in-law because she has been under a lot of stress lately… just a little pick me up.  I scoured Pinterest for some old German traditions, something she might remember from her childhood, and came across the tradition of placing a bird’s nest in the Christmas tree and ran with that!

Pearly Christmas Ornament

I had some plain glass Christmas ornaments that I had great intentions for but never actually got around to doing anything with until the other day.  I had a few containers of strand craft pearls I bought at the dollar store, so I decided that was what I would do with a couple of the ornaments.

Gingerbread Man Wooden Spoons

This morning’s craft is another quick and easy/dollar store craft.  I picked up packages of wooden spoons for just over a dollar for a pack of three!

This would be a great craft to do with the kids, let them personalize their own Gingerbread Men!

I made these ones to add to our Christmas Preserve Baskets, just as a little decoration.  I will also be making some Snowman Wooden Spoons later in the week!

The time has come for me to get my butt in gear to get ready for Christmas.  In the coming weeks/months, I will be posting both Christmas gifts and Christmas decorations.  Hopefully I don’t accidentally give anyone a sneak peak at one of their gifts!!!
