There are two things we are obsessed with making at our house: pom-poms and snowflakes. I love snowflake making!! It’s the best because you never know what you’re going to get, and everyone oohs and aahs when you open up your snowflake. It’s completely addicting!

10. Wood Slice Ornaments
For this project I used some leftover slices from our Save the Date magnets, and then some birch logs I bought with a coupon at Michael’s a couple weeks ago. Of course you could slice up some branches or logs you already have on hand, or even purchase the pre-sliced wood slices.

13. Pom Pom Garland
I recommend that you tie a knot around the first and last one, just to secure them. You can space your pom-poms an inch apart, or you could push the cotton balls together (like I do) for a more solid looking garland.

14. Christmas Tree Cactus
I opted for a fake cactus for two reason, one to avoid the impending doom of my crafting clumsiness while decorating them, and two, so the handy work will last for next year, too, but it’s totally up to you.

37. Handmade Popsicle Ornaments
I always like to make at least one handmade Christmas ornament each year. They add that personalized touch and I really enjoy looking back at older ornaments as I pull out the Christmas decorations. This year I’m doing a wintery Christmas cabin theme in our family room so I decided to make some cute popsicle stick sleds.

38. Button Garland for the Christmas Tree
Once I had my own tree to decorate I wanted the same feel of Christmas tree that I had growing up. Stringing popcorn was not ideal. So I thought of another way that I could add some white garland to my tree. I came up with a white button garland. It has all the mismatched texture of popcorn with the different size buttons on it. After 5 years my garland still looks great! No need to make another one!
