A Very Crafty Christmas (Project #1)...

Every Christmas I dream of making a homemade, meaningful Christmas present for every person on my list. With homeschooling, (and now babysitting) however, I find that my "free time" to actually make my ideas come to life is very fleeting.

Reality check!!!

Over the next few Fridays, I'll be posting some easy (as in, if I can do this there's really no way to mess this up) projects you can make with a minimum investment (ok, these projects are cheap, people!).

Project #1:
Snowflake Wreath

Supply list:
Glittery snowflakes [purchased after Christmas last year (for less than $1) at Wal-Mart]
Hot Glue Gun
Sheer ribbon [found at Dollar Tree!!!]
Styrofoam Wreath Form [another DT find!!]

Attach the ribbon you will use to hang the wreath. (Do this first, trust me.) Wrap your wreath with the ribbon and hot glue (or pin) in place. Arrange the snowflakes around the wreath and hot glue them down. That's it! Now sit back and enjoy your beautiful creation.

Total cost: Less than $4 for glittery wonderfulness! (is that a word??)

Stay tuned for more easy-peasy gift ideas!
