Boy were these fun to make! I hope some of my crafty friends will share what they made this Christmas.
A knitted hat to Vlad from Mommy
A gnome home with mushroom rattle for my niece, Mae. The gnomes are knit, but the rest is crocheted.
A big, beautiful Christmas doily made by my Mom. Gorgeous!
A dollhouse for Ollie Bean. My mom made it for me when I was little. Then I painted it for Jas. Now Matt fixed it for Ollie in the same colors as our house! He made a little furniture for it too. There is more we want to add, then more pics will follow! Can you believe my Mom made this from scratch? She is a d. i. y. beast!
Old school bomb with fuse for the bros, knitted.
My favorite gift wrapping this Christmas, done with upcycled packing paper from a delivery.
Had to make Ollie a gnome home too!
Matt took a wooden, thrifted salad bowl and carved it into a yarn bowl. I love it! Now my yarn doesn't roll across the room while I knit.
Some ankle socks, knitted for myself! Claus is vacationing inside for the winter, so I had to put him to work hauling my socks.
Gift bags made from old t-shirts
A time bomb with removable sticks of dynamite. Matt recorded a sound button in the clock! You must check out the video of it here
A stocking made out of t-shirts. The inside is red. Of course this was for the tractor loving Brandon.
Here are some t-shirts that Matt made by creating a stencil from freezer paper and painting the shirt. I think he outdid himself!
Link for Wolfie
Megaman for Vlad
A thumbdog for his Mama
And for his Dad, Dennis Kucinich!
I didn't take a pic of the grenade stuffie I made, but I did take a video. (click here) Matt recorded another sound button and it has already seen a lot of action!
Last, but not least, the boys did their first embroidery as a gift to their talented Grandma Kathy. Subscribers, Click for video
I hope you fit a little handmade into your Christmas! I would love to hear what some of you made too!
