I know its a week from Christmas so its almost too late to be postin more Christmas crafts.
But these are some fun easy and FREE decorations.
For our Burlap Christmas Tree we needed a star.
I tried to find one at the dollar store and Wal-Mart but I just didn't like any.
I had been saving toilet paper and paper towel tubes for awhile and decided this would be a fun project to use them for.
First I cut up the rolls in to about half inch pieces.
Then I glued pieces together at the ends.
Once I had the pieces started I then began just playing around and trying to make a star shape.
I found that using hot glue allowed this project to go fairly quickly.
This was the end shape that I came up with. I started with the 4 glued together and then just filled in the gaps until I ran out of pieces. I love the way it turned out :)
My favorite craft are these Toilet Paper Reindeer!
I wanted some decorations other than on the tree so I decided to make something small to put on the book shelf.
For this craft I just used 3 toilet paper tubes, twigs from the yard, and hot glue.
I started off with 1 whole tube as the body and added 4 twigs as the legs.
I just put a drop of hot glue where I wanted the legs placed.
Mine are a little wonky but I thought that added character :)
Then I cut another tube in half and used it as the head. I added a smaller thicker twig for the neck and glued it to both the head and body.
Then I added forked twigs for the antlers.
This craft took a little longer than the star but was still less than 20 minutes total.
Both of these crafts where so fun!
I think they both look great unfinished but was thinking today that spraying the deer white would add a little more winter whimsy.
I'm probably going to leave the deer out all year just cause I think they are so cute!
Now that it is a week before Christmas I am finally finished decorating :)
Reed and I leave on Thursday the 20th go fly down to Nicaragua and spend Christmas with his family.
I know I've been posting really randomly lately but I wont post anything for about a week.
I'm gonna try and keep yall updated on facebook and instagram but who knows!
I hope that each and every one of you have a fabulous Holiday season with your family!!
