Crafts of Christmas Past

I can't help falling for kitschy Christmas crafting. Here are a few of my favorite projects from years past.

These guys are a matched set. The tallest stands about 16".

An incredibly fun project that Mom and I did together. I saw something very similar in a catalog for way too much money, thought we could probably improvise one ourselves, so we did. She made one for herself, and this guy was mine.

Glass tree ornaments.

All of these projects are incredibly easy and if there's interest, I'll be happy to post a quickie tutorial on any or all of them.

actually, these are not kitschy at ALL! (IMHO)
I never have seen anything 'done' to those reindeer before that wasn't simply adding a bow...

I collect snowmen...and your glass ornaments have lovely colors!!
merry Christmas!

How are the glass ornaments made? Is the color inside or outside?

Oh, quite nice. Yes, do tell about the ornaments. They could be decore for other seasons.

I love them and the way they bring back memories - and I didn't even make them!
