Craft Roundup: Time for the Holiday Season

Hopefully you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn't eat too much turkey. Or stuffing. Or ... you get the idea. Thanksgiving, no matter when it falls on the calendar, tends to mark the official beginning of the holiday season, taking us all the way through the end of the year. Here are a few projects to get you in the holiday mood.

 

DIY Papercute Garland

Thanksgiving might be over, but phrases like "Be Thankful" are appropriate any time of year. Check out Poppytalk to learn how to make this for your family.

 

Screen Printed Advent Calendar

Hand Drawn Keepsake Ornaments

Holiday ornaments don't have to cost a ton of money. And when you add personal touches, like portraits drawn by your children, the memories are sure to be made instantly. Get started with this tutorial by Skip to My Lou.
