DIY Christmas Decorations

One of my crafty friends took a pair of shutters that were going to be thrown out and DIY-ed them into an outside Christmas decoration (although I'm sure this would work inside too, maybe flanking a fireplace).

I love the red poinsettias next to the green shutters.  It's so festive looking, and large.  It's great you can see these from the road.

And she DIY-ed that wreath on her door too.
So cute.  You did a great job Rebecca!  I just had to share your crafty creations since I don't really have any of my own to share.

I  haven't gotten that ambitious with my Christmas decorations.  Maybe next year when I don't have a toddler running around making messes for me to clean up.

Seriously, check out what the Babes did while she was supposed to be napping:
And that's not even her room.  She escaped and got into her sister's markers.

And speaking of her sister, Sweetie Pie got a little crafty and made her own Christmas hair bow to wear to school the other day.
She just took a gift bow and taped it onto a hair barrette (the kind that just snap open and closed).  She said it stayed in all day.  How cute is that:
And here she is being even craftier and painting some Christmas ornaments.

What Christmas crafts do your kids like to do?
Have you gotten crafty and made any Christmas decorations?
