Merry Freaking Christmas

I’ve been busy with lots of Christmas crafts…and the first two books of the Hunger Games (soo good! I listen to the books while I craft and clean) and the first season of Vampire Diaries (I like Damon, but really still miss Spike).  From instagram (@thelittletiny) here are some of the things I’ve been working on!

It's never to early for glitter. Quick! Send me a Christmas card! I send Valentines, but my antler looks bare!
Glittered mini clothespins to hang Christmas cards. I used tacky glue and old school glitter and I REALLY like the way it looks! None of that expensive fine glitter on hand, but I’m glad because the fat glitter is so cheeky.

Merry freaking Christmas. @heathmild
I used my deer template to make myself (and Heather made a matching one!) a holiday cheer sweatshirt. I used a $6 sweatshirt from Wal-mart and it is SO cozy!

Tree candy.
I made some painted ornaments, but I really l don’t like the way they turned out. I kept them upside down too long and condensation built up. Like a science experiment gone wrong. But they look cool here.

Attack of the killer pom-poms! Only 50billion to go! Pom-pom fuel.

13 episodes of Vampire Diaries later...
And the bane of my Holiday existence. My pom-pom wreath! I made like a 20 inch wreath form and things got out of control. I finished late last night, hence the horrible picture. Maybe I’ll take some decent ones. It’s hard to fathom how many pom-poms are on this thing (all made by hand) until you see it in person.

And THAT ladies and gentlemen, is what I’ve been up to. How about you? Any Holiday crafts that are prodding you to poke your eyes out?

    Christmas, the craziest {happy?} time of the year…
    Those all look super fun! I just found your blog last night, and am your newest follower, and on instagram.
    So, I guess that makes me your newest stalker 😉

    Handmade pom-poms? You trying to make us look bad? Haha.

    No, I love the way your wreath turned out! Very cute. And also, I adore old school glitter.

    i did the clothespins with glitter paint, and they are DEFINITELY not as blingy. i know i should have gone with the old school glitter!

    Your yarn ball tree decorations inspired me to do one continuous string of mini yarn balls as a garland for our tree. It is looking very fun but it is taking forever! Thanks for the idea!
