Friday Favorites–Christmas

Are you ready?  I’m not.  Too much left too do, not enough hours to do it in.  I might have to give up sleeping.  Still, I wouldn’t trade all the holiday chaos for the world.

There are so many great Christmas crafts out there.  I always have a huge list of them I want to try, and once in a while I actually cross one off.  Here’s a few that have caught my eye.

I always thought it would be funny to put something in my kids’ stockings that they would think was actually coal.  This Carbón Dulce (or Sweet Coal) from Diamonds for Dessert would be so fun to sit back and watch.  Wow, that sounded evil – I might find coal in my stocking.  I hope it’s edible.


Our house was built in the early 70’s, so we’re constantly working to update different areas.  Therefore, we have lots of leftover tiles, perfect for these Glass Tile Christmas Ornaments from Our Crafty Home.


Part of the reason I love this Angel Bunny from Joey’s Dream Garden is that it’s made from felt.  It also has lots of great embroidery, also a plus.  But, my favorite thing about it is just that it’s a bunny, which you don’t often see at Christmas.

This Sn”oap”ball from Greenbean’s Crafterole is much easier than it looks, and makes such a cute gift.


This Santa Hat from Fleece Fun is easy and can be downloaded in infant, child or adult sizes.


So many houses don’t have fireplaces these days, and I’ve often wondered how Santa gets in.  This Magic Santa Key from East Coast Mommy almost makes me wish I didn’t have one either.


I love how these Simple Christmas Ornaments from Cards by Paula combine a little felt and a little fabric.  Great way to use up some scraps.


My kids cannot see these Expandable Christmas Stockings from Instructables user scoochmaroo.  I’d never hear the end of it.


I love cake pops.  I also love Starbucks.  Needless to say, I have sampled the peppermint cake pops at Starbucks.  More than once.  With these Candy Cane Cake Pops from Hostess with the Mostess, I can make my own at home.  Dangerous.


I’ve never once, in my whole life, wanted a beard.  Until this Easy Santa Beard from Snazzle Craft


I hope your holiday plans are going smoothly!
