this ornament cracks me up every year. my sis gave this to me as a "joke" a few years back. im sure it was true back in the day....LOL
here is my fav xmas decoration. a santa doll my sis made me. he even has a teddy like mine when i was a kid and a quilt/blanky! see my old red sled i bought at an auction in minnesota?
lastly, remember my homemade stocking stand? i blogged about it HERE last year. simple to make....and its almost better than a mantel. (almost) BUT she does still need to be repainted. (put that on my to do list for 2011).
check out pinksuedeshoe she's done some fun ornaments in the last week!
I love the handmade ornaments, too. That is mostly what I have on my tree. A lot of them are things that my boys have made at school. I have one that one of my students made for me a few years back. I should take a pic for you and do a blog post. I think it should be simple. It uses a small bit of fleece, two walnuts and toothpicks. All fun stuff, right?
For ideas maybe check out childmade.com -- so many ideas there!
I also did up a tutorial for an origami puff ball... they are fun to make with kids because you get to puff them up at the end!! http://describehappy.blogspot.com/2010/12/origami-puff-balls-tutorial.html
beaded snowflakes using pipe cleaners and plastic beads.
I also love homemake ornaments. All the memories you get when you bring them out each year. That sister ornament is so funny!! As my kids would say, any ornament with macaroni and sprayed gold!!!
I agree with Krista. Pink Suede Shoe has some good ones!!
