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.
