Christmas is near! I love going to my friends houses and helping them decorate their trees! When I was in high school I loved going caroling with my drama and choir friends! I always got excited when I started hearing all of the Christmas music on the radio. I wouldn’t miss the holiday specials – Rudolph the Red Noised Reindeer, How the Grinch Stole Christmas (not the Jim Carrey version), The Year Without a Santa Claus (love the Heat Miser), Charlie Brown Christmas, Frosty the Snowman – sigh and It’s a Wonderful Life (THE BEST!) – I love them all!!!!
While the Menorah Tree did not go over well with my family (for the record, I think it is great and totally embraces Hanukkah THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS!!!), however the Mensch on a Bench was a HUGE hit! I will be embracing my inner Santa’s little elf this year and returning to my youth (when we could make Christmas decorations in art class in elementary school) and creating some fun holiday crafts with my kids! Jewish or Christian – Hanukkah or Christmas – it is all about getting fun and getting crafty!!! Whatever you celebrate – here are some really fun DIY holiday decorations you can do with your kids (or probably in my case, with my friend Maria because my kids will get bored and want to play video games – Maria – you in?)
Mini Stocking Table Setting
Look at these cute little stockings!
This one may require a little more craftiness, but it’s for sure doable!
Candy Flower Vase
This can be done with any type of candy, use your imagination!
While this could take some time to put together, it will be worth the work!
Snowman Milk Jugs
I go through jugs and jugs of milk every week, I could have an army of snowmen jugs.
