More Craft Inspirations from Christmas Past

I thought I would share with you and maybe inspire you with some of the Christmas Tree Ornaments that I have made in the past. If you click on the most of photos, they will take you to the tutorial or a page which is similar that may have inspired me.

Every year I get excited to rummage through my Christmas Storage boxes. Many of the items bring forth memories of Christmas past. Making ornaments with my kids has been a big part of it. Kids love to make things for themselves as well as for gifts.

Occasionally I make something that is a little more challenging, like these baubles below, however the waterfall one lower down does not have a tutorial as I made it up as I went along being inspired by a set of fancy bauble that my mother splurged on one year more than 40 years ago. I made a set of 6 for each of my family members and my sister as a memento of my mum.

Each year I love to make something new to add to the Christmas decor whether it be a wall hanging, a Christmas Tree skirt like last year or ornaments.

Where to get your inspirations from. 

Inspirations can come from many sources. Mostly now I have stopped buying magazines and I now surf the internet when I want some new ideas. The last couple of years, I have begun to save lots of creative ideas and inspirations on Pinterest. It’s fabulous.

It is a virtual pin board to 'pin up' the things you love. It can be anything you like whether it be crafts for the grand kids to do, caravan & RV trips, home decor ideas, whatever you would like to reserve for future reference. If you haven’t heard about it yet, you have to check it out! It is better than ripping out pages from magazines and popping them into concertina files. (Though I still keep mine just in case!)

Have fun decorating your home for this Christmas!
