I have a few more things to craft up before all the official festivities begin, which will start for us on Christmas Eve. If you need a few last minute ideas, here are some easy ways to decorate for Christmas...
Easy tutorial to finger knitting here. Wool felt lights, I first made them long ago here. And felted bead balls is all we use to decorate our tree, just like last year. This year we just made more!

And of course, the sixth and final elf stocking has been made and is now hanging on the mantle...

All that is left on the Christmas decoration making agenda is a wreath and something pretty for our Christmas Eve dinner table. Tomorrow I will give a little tour of a happily decorated space, if I remember in this crazy, busy time. Though the big happening at our place tomorrow is the making of lots of homemade tamales for Christmas Eve. I am so excited about the menu! Ben has lots of good things up his sleeve. My dear family, get excited!!!

What things do you have left to do before the official festivities begin?


  1. Great colors. I love the wool felt balls garland. We made some red pom pom ones last year. Was thinking to make some wool felt balls jewelry for my little girl. Happy Holiday.

  2. love the stocking, so cute!!

  14. Our Christmas tree is FULL of notes the children wrote to Santa. They are our favorite "ornaments". Now that the children are grown and have babies of their own, the notes are a reflection of a joyous past. Hold your babies close...they grow MUCH to fast!!!
