We have a lot of really great neighbors that swarm us with Christmas gifts every year. It’s always fun to see what they come up with. I thought I would share what I came up with this year. It had to meet the requirements of easy, cheap, fast, and cute.
My original plan was to cut snowflakes from felt, soak it in fabric stiffener and glitter, and hang with string. However, when I saw these cardboard snowflakes
for 5 for 1 dollar at a store closing down in my area, I knew it would be a whole lot easier. So with my trusty small helpers, we spread mod podge all over the snowflake, and sprinkled them with the best Martha Stewart Glitter, and WALLA!
Ugly snowflake tree ornament turned pretty.
Then I pulled out of my freezer the snowball cookies (as we call them) we bought from the Pepperidge Farm discount store.
With my two little helpers we bagged them up and made it all pretty.
They were a lot of help.
The kids had a great time passing them out with daddy. Now with a couple of things left on my to-do list, I think I’m almost ready for Christmas. Speaking of lists . . .
My oldest daughter has been busy at work writing all her letters to Santa. I might also mention half of them are intended for baby Jesus also 🙂 Each rolled up paper has her name and D-A-D on it, because that is what she can write. Isn’t Christmas so fun when you have kids!
