It's That Time of Year...

Well we've started our last week before Winter Break and things are in full swing at my house.  It looks like Christmas and I'm working on it smelling like it as well.  I have a list of cupcakes I'm making for Natalie's school for her Holiday Party on Friday.  But before that we have her first school/dance company show Thursday night! We can't wait!  She has been singing every Christmas song on the radio but has requested "Up on the House Top" the most by far!
After thinking about what I could get her wonderful teachers I remembered the PLAY project I did in her play area over the summer.  So I wrapped their last initial with red and white polka dot fabric and covered the edges with 7/8" grosgrain green ribbon.  Pretty simple.  I like how it's obviously Christmas without being smothered in reindeer and snowmen.  It can be added to a wreath, placed on their tree, or used as decor as is.

The next craft I found here.  I had to make a few adjustments because I couldn't find 3" Styrofoam round wreaths ANYWHERE.  So I settled for a wooden circle that you can find in the wood crafts section at Michael's.  It's not quite 3" but it worked.  My husband then took it and punched a hole in the middle. {Thanks Andy}  I followed Stacy's directions and this is how it turned out:

I like these so much that I'm thinking about ditching the Christmas Tree balls next year and just making a ton of these.  We'll see...

Happy Holiday Crafting!
