Anyway, my first thought was that I really like the bird ornaments we have in the tree, and I thought making an Owl, perhaps with a santa hat, as the topper would be super cute. But I don't really want to buy more supplies for this project right now, especially considering I've thought about it for a week now and haven't really thought up a way to execute the idea. Maybe by next year I will have it figured out. So I thought in the interim I might make one of these as a topper, via Craft (the images are also via craft, I haven't made mine yet):
We also did some strolling & shopping yesterday, and I noticed the Keen Store (which has really neat shoe displays) has a paper snowflake constructed from old floor plans. I've been slowly adding to our snowflake window and I thought making a really big one of these would be a lot of fun, so we looked up a tutorial on wikihow (again haven't made mine yet):
And speaking of birds as ornaments, I will definately be printing out some of these on cardstock to hang in our tree, by Lisa Rupp of That's Happy via bugs and fishes:
And speaking of that tree skirt, design*sponge had a pretty lovely looking one with a tutorial this week:
And lastly I think this is lovely, but I probably won't be trying to make it, at least not this year. From The Country Chic Cottage via Craft Gossip, a tree made of sewing patterns!:
It's a great time of year for crafters! I know you probably don't need more to do, with the Christmas shopping, cards, etc., but these are too much fun to resist. I hope I find time to make most of them!
