Handmade Holidays: Three Last Minute Projects

from the feathered nest
The Feathered Nest is a blog I frequent. I can always find something crafty and completely inspired there. Christmas is a really good time to drop by for ideas.
I found three cute tutorials for Christmas crafts that will make great last minute decorations or presents.

1. Mittens

The mitten ornaments are a lovely idea. You can either follow her instructions and sew your own or you can round up a bunch of mismatched mittens that you may have tucked away and create fun holiday decorations with them.
With three kids, I have plenty of mismatched mittens and tiny gloves. They all go in a basket in the closet, just in case the matches are ever found. Usually they aren’t. So I have a supply of ready to go gloves and mittens just waiting to be upcycled into Christmas decor.

2. Gift Card Box

The gift card box is another cute craft to make. I have done something similar only I painted the boxes. These ones are a little fancier.

3. Tiny Stockings

The third handmade holiday tutorial from The Feathered Nest that I really like is the wee stocking. This is another craft you can start from scratch or modify and make from small socks you may have left from little ones. Just like mittens and gloves little socks tend to lose their mates.
Some would surely make precious wee stockings.
