Christmas Overview

There were so many things we did for Christmas presents I wanted to share but didn't want to "let the cat out of the bag" so here they are...

Salt dough jewelry

We used extra small cookie cutters and stamps to imprint them. 

Then we painted them with metallic craft paint and strung them on leather string. 

The best part was being able to make something the boys could help with and feel a part of and it still look really nice. 


Photo holder

This one was another Pinterest idea just a board, paint, clothes pins, glue and pictures. the grandparents loved it!

Texas A&M and Dallas Cowboys shot glasses.

Etching Cream and glass shot glasses.


Flying Bookmarks

Bookmarks of flying boys. another grandparents' gift. We took pictures of the boys laying on the floor. then printed them, cut them out and laminated them with contact paper. Cut them out again, and added twine. 

Miniature ornaments

This is a combination of ideas. Salt dough, bottle caps, and beer bottle caps. the caps have 1 inch circles glued in the middle or snowflake punches. Then I hot glued paperclips on the backs for hooks.


Wine bottle and Glass holder

Chris got into the gift making too. He made a couple of these to give as gifts. very cool! but don't ask me how. :-) here is the pintrest inspirations

Gift box

 This was a great gift box I found at Target and all the new parents loved it. 

Christmas trees for our gingerbread village

 Green Icing, sugar cones, candy.

 Add excited children



Yummy Fun!

Here is their village. The children made house twice while with others, and this is all that was left of their trees. 
What do you do with your gingerbread house after Christmas? 

Thanks for looking at all our crazy ideas. I hope it inspires you to have fun with gifts too.
