Makes: I Love Pinterest!

The girls and I have been doing crafts lately, for Christmas ornaments and for fun.  All these projects were ideas I found on Pinterest, on which can be found all manner of amazing things!

A wedding invitation ornament, for my recently married good friend.  The leaf embellishment is from the wedding favor.  It turned out so pretty!


 Combination of the wedding invitation idea and a mod-podge project I saw, I curled up strips of sheet music and filled the plastic ball.  Love how these turned out!



  These toddler discovery bottles were based on a pin from Disney Family Fun.  I used empty plastic spice bottles.  I hot glued them to within an inch of their life, but they still leaked, so I resorted to the butterfly duct tape.  These are so fun!



I saw the jingle bell wreath on Pinterest, with a ribbon bow.  I didn't read the post before I made ours, so I didn't know that they used copper wire to get it really round.  Mine slumps a little with a pipe cleaner.  I do like how they came out, though!


 I crocheted this scrunchie to make an Elmo for my camera, like I saw on this pin.
(sc around a hairtie, join, ch 3, 3dc in each sc around, join, finish off)
I cut out eyes, pupils and a nose from felt and tacky glued them to the scrunchie.
I really hope this will help me to get my girls to smile for the camera!

Hope you are listening to Christmas music and making lots of Christmasy things too.  This is such a wonderful, crafty season.  :)
