I am being so good and not decorating for Christmas before Advent begins! But Advent festivities take a lot of prep for me, so I am starting to get myself in gear. I have my projects lined up!
-- We are making clay ornaments for our Jesse tree (starting these today, since they have to dry!). I use this baking soda & cornstarch clay recipe: http://fullofgreatideas.blogspot.com/2012/09/christmas-in-september-corn-starch-and.html
-- I want to try making these Christmas Baubles (and perhaps stringing them in a garland?): http://www.homemade-gifts-made-easy.com/make-christmas-ornaments.html#axzz1XqTHTlgP
-- I'm learning to make wreaths! Our big fir tree lost a limb so a friend of mine showed me how to wrastle the branches into wreaths with floral wire. Maybe I'll put up a picture, but the ones I have made so far are definitely a bit...oval.
-- And of course we want to make paper snowflakes and stick them up everywhere.
Have you started your Christmas decorating, or your decorating prep? What is your project list?
