Christmas ideas for next year

The last bit of Christmas fun ended when the in laws left yesterday. Now that we have officially handed all the gifts out, I thought I would share some of the crafts/gifts/projects I did this last year.

I made Santa pots to hold some homemade vanilla and a bag of White Moose Cappuccino.

I painted the bottom part of a flower pot red and the top part black. I hot glued a silver washer to the front to resemble Santa's belt. 

Laney helped make reindeer noses for her class.

We filled a bag with Whoppers and 1 red peanut M&M.

 I made an erasable Prayer list.

I took a piece of notebook paper and cut it to fit a picture frame. I wrote at the top Prayer List(I have seen grocery list, menu plans, notes,etc). I hot glued a bow to the top and added a sharpie. Those who need prayers can be easily added to the list. A prayer that has been answered can be thanked and then easily erased.

I turned my tree in the foyer into a Santa tree. I thought I had taken a picture but as I was looking back at my pictures I must have forgotten. I put the tree into a red container and added a Santa belt and white batting. I got the idea from here. I guess you will have to wait until next year to see what mine looked like. 

I did get a picture of the ornaments I made for the tree.

I made sock cupcakes for several friends and family.

These are very easy to make and turn out really cute.

I guess this year turned into a crafty Christmas.
