Create a cute Holiday Angel Votive from paper towel tubes, a bit of yarn and some dollar store items!  These sweet angels are a perfect, inexpensive decoration to light up your holiday mantel.  And they are fun to make too!


Every year, I participate in an ornament club.  Our club has been meeting now for the past 21 years, and we have quite a few artistic folks in it that appreciate time spent on ornaments.  We get together on the first Saturday in December to swap handmade ornaments.

Of course, that entails coming up with something original every year.  But you would be amazed at some of the awesome things that we have exchanged over the years.  Many of my Christmas projects on the Sitcom were originally projects that I made for the club.

Such as: Paper Mache Characters Vintage Snowglobe OrnamentsSleepy Time Doorstop Floral Handpainted Ornamentsand Bread Dough Bears.

One of my favorite things to collect over the years for Christmas was fun and colorful nutcrackers.  When I sold my house a few years ago, I sold everything in it including my nutcracker collection.  Living in a motorhome means not much room for decorations.

So this week, I decided to create a batch of tiny nutcrackers made from wooden spoons.  And I've included a free pattern for you to make your own!

Jar O Nutcracker Spoons

These easy to make Nutcracker Spoons are reminiscent of my Jar O' Monsters Spoons.  Minus the monsters, but with added Nutcracker grouchiness.


Grab a recycled jar, add some glass cabochons to it (you can find them at the Dollar Store), and put your Nutcracker spoons anywhere you would like for a bit of Christmas festivity.
