DIY Ornaments:
Tiny Yarn Hats

This is Part Two in our quest for a Crafty Colorful Christmas. You can see the clay gingerbread men ornaments we made last week here.

When thinking about what else we could add to our tree this year, I immediately knew I wanted to incorporate yarn somehow. Partly because of the color and texture it would add -- but mostly, because I have a ton of it for my weavings.

What could be cuter and cozier than tiny yarn hats?? Done!

They're very easy to make -- my five-year-old son was able to help me.

DIY Ornaments:
Clay Gingerbread Men

I love a homemade Christmas. I'm into the not-quite-perfectly-decorated tree. I like when it's obvious that my children helped make ornaments. We'll have plenty of opportunity this year: instead of the yellow and white Christmas of years past, K and I decided to make 2014 the year of the Crafty Colorful Christmas.

...starting with these gingerbread men ornaments.
