Things You've Created for Christmas

I won't lie - I'm kind of addicted to Pinterest. I don't spend near as much time on it as I used to, but I still love to browse every now and then. My favorite thing to use it for is recipes, but lately I've been searching for Christmas ideas, decor ideas, card ideas - you name it. 

My time is so limited lately, with moving to a new apartment and having a two-month old daughter, but I'm still dreaming of all the Christmas projects I'd like to pull off before the season is over, besides making my own Christmas cards to mail out, of course. 

I've also been toying with the idea of making a paper fireplace to hang out stockings on at the new apartment, just like I made the Super Mario decor for my daughter's room. Keeping with that theme, I've also been thinking of making huge paper ornaments and hanging those on the wall as well. With paper, scissors, glue and sticky tack for hanging, anything can be possible. 

I've gotten a little off my original topic, but here are some Christmas projects I'd love to tackle if I find the time. 

This DIY baby's first Christmas ornament is adorable. They used embossing ink and glitter to pull it off. It's so unique, and it would be fun to look back on it and see how big the child's hand has grown the next year. I'm thinking of maybe even making one every year for the first 5 years or so, depending on the size of the ball. [ View on Pinterest ]

This Christmas countdown made on a metal tray is so simple, yet adorable. Because I'm lazy and would have no way to get all the numbers and letters without wasting days and days, I'd probably find some stickers that look similar and just Mod Podge those right in, but that's just me.  [ View on Pinterest ]

Gorgeous Popsicle stick snowflakes. Popsicle sticks are so cheap to buy, then all you need is glue, ribbon and paint. The website gives very easy to follow step-by-step instructions (with photos!) on how to make each snowflake. 

I'll leave it at three projects for now, since I know even that would be amazing for me to actually get done.
