Fun Finds for the Tree

   Grab your tinsel and plug in your glue's time to clear the kitchen table for a fabulous fun crafter-noon. Here are this week's fun finds for trimming your tree.
Easy DIY ornaments! 
First let us hop over to College Lifestyles for a quick and simple ornament called a 'Kissing Ball'. A dab ribbon and a sprig of holly accent a simple fabric wrapped ball for a frugal fun way to use a few fat quarter scraps.
37 simple homemade #christmas ornaments 
Next we zip over to Fave Crafts for a whopping thirty-one seriously simple ornaments for crafty tree trimming.  Paper cut rustic angles and sheet music baubles look frugal and fabulous.

Our next stop on the web is Turnstyle Vogue where cinnamon and applesauce magically become fragrant decorations just right for tree trimming or accenting a gift. Reminds me of the years my little ones made them in the kitchen with me..after the holidays we hung them in our closets to keep the cinnamon scent going a little longer.
Nativity ornament 
Finally we stop by Crafting and Creativity for a precious vision of simplicity. Little wooden people offer a natural and humble reminder of the reason we celebrate. A precious nativity for showing or sharing..and excellent simple gift for a friend.

   Oh, my but there are so many more things to do and see..burlap ornaments and sparkly ornaments; tulle and ribbon..the possibilities are endless. After the business of this weekend pass, we intend to dust of the tree and clear out a corner to do a little trimming of our own. 
   Have a wonderful crafter-noon!

I love the cinnamon ornaments. My girls and I made these when they were young.

Great ideas. My mother-in-law made those cinnamon ornaments and put one on each of our plates for a gift, my husband's grandma, bless her heart, was hard of hearing and seeing...she thought they were cookies and ate it...we laugh about it now, well, then too....she was a sweetie and laughed too.
