How to make simple & easy DIY rustic clothespin snowflake ornaments with mini and regular sized spring clothespins - Awesome & cute wooden snowflakes covered in gold glitter. For kids or adults.

I have one more Christmas craft for you before I return to my regularly scheduled Christian inspiration.

Allie who is turning 8 in a week isn’t much for crafting generally, but Grace who is 11-1/2 loves it. She would happily glue and paint with me all day and all night, as … Read more

I considered going to a local state park and “harvesting” pine cones (or would that be stealing them?) but I figured that was probably illegal, and with my luck, … Read more

I created this super cute little reindeer craft from a pine cone, thinking it would be perfect for my 8-year-old to make on a chilly and rainy December afternoon. I got out my trusty hot glue gun and all the supplies, and I invited her to come craft with me. “No, I don’t think so,” she said from downstairs. I sat with wide eyes, wondering what to do next. “Why not?” I called to her. “I don’t want to,” she said. “It will be fun. We’re going to make reindeer,” I urged.

Just keep that in mind if you’re going to use your door … Read more
