Contact Paper Ornaments – Crafting with Kids

affiliate

I love the holiday for so many reasons but number one is time spent with family.  I knew I was going to be hanging out with my nephew so I scrounged up a few supplies for a fun crafting session. He’s a super active not-quite-3-year-old and this held his attention for about 15 minutes. I also discovered he’s about as easy to photograph as Bigfoot so all the pictures of him came out blurry.

Aroma Beads Scent Jars

Instead of an over priced candle why not make your own home scenting gift this year? Aroma beads are small plastic balls that absorb and disperse fragrance. They’re fool proof and easy to make. You can display them in small organza bags or in these pretty mason jars with decorative lids.

Festive Coffee Gift Box

We have lovely neighbors, they made me dinner when I got home from the hospital with Mary, snowblowed our driveway (more than once) and perhaps most luckily think our slightly out of control animals are cute and charming (considering a few of our ducks spent the night in their almost-built house that’s a miracle). I wanted to put together a little gift to thank them but aside from them being the nicest people ever and that have a ton of grandchildren we don’t know very much about them.

I’ve got a serious collection of milk glass, most of it goes back to the wedding but some I’ve picked up here and there over the years. I’ve acquired quite a few duplicates and I wanted to fancy them up so I came up with a few ideas for decorative painted milk glass.
