Christmas Crafting

 With the move this year, we're trying to gift as inexpensively as possible.  So that means handmade!  Especially for teachers, since I think they tend to appreciate handmade gifts more than storebought anyway.
A couple months ago, I saw this decoration at HomeGoods, so I thought it would be the perfect project for the kids!
 We gathered a bunch of sticks, distressed some wood, and Ta-dah!  Really cute wall hangings for their teachers!
They're so cute, I wish we had made one for ourselves at the same time!
Then, for my sisters, I decided to make this reclaimed wood snowflakes.  These photos are from before I'd glued them together, but they turned out so nicely!

This time, I was smart, and did make one for myself at the same time!  Unfortunately, it will have to wait until next year to be hung though!
Hope you're all having a wonderful season!
