Friday Favorites–Christmas

This is my first Christmas as a crafty blogger.  I knew there would be a lot of great holiday ideas out there, but wow.  I couldn’t keep up with all of it if I had my own team of elves.  I can’t even find enough time to make and write about my OWN ideas.

Today, I’d like to share a few things that have caught my eye.  I’m saving them for July.

Remember my candy shadow box from Halloween?  Here’s a Jingle All the Way frame from Blue Eyed Blessings that it should be in it’s next life.


I think this might be a Christmas craft I could get my son on board with.  You can learn how to make this duct tape stocking and package from the JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores blog.

This Felted Wool Mistletoe from A Foothill Home Companion just makes me want to kiss somebody!


This Poinsettia Headband from Livvy Loo Who is so sweet.  Click through to the other photos on her blog.  I didn’t think it could be cuter until I saw it on her little model.


I actually made a bunch of these Modern Paper Ornaments from Design Sponge to hang around my house for a party my kids had a couple of weeks ago.  We liked them so much they’re still up.


I have teenagers.  These Texting Balls from HomeWorkshop just crack me up.


QuiltSoup is offering a free download of the pattern for these Gifted gift card wallets and the Hip Holidays quilt.  So fun!



This is such a great idea.  You could make these Silhouette Christmas Stockings for the entire family and Simply Silhouettes shows you how.


There’s nothing more I can say.  This Elf Entrance from Family Fun has left me speechless.


I’ve really been into felt lately.  I think that makes this DIY Handmade Wool Felt Looped Holiday Wreath from Hello, Good Gravy a must-do.


My next Friday Favorites will actually be next  Thursday.  It’s all about Christmas food!
