Some March posts from the Christmas Kitchen archives
I'll start with the non-crafting topic -- a gorgeous vintage Christmas card.
Of berries red, of candles’ mellow light.
Of course the card at the top of the post is vintage also -- I found a set of these snowflake cards in an old box in a closet.
If, like me, you enjoy crafting ornaments, and if you have access to hemlock cones (those are the teeny tiny ones) you might like to try these Snowy hemlock cone ornaments. In the post you will read about my expensive inspiration for this project.
Inspiration for your handmade gifts, with ideas gleaned from other bloggers, will inspire you as it did me, I'm sure.
A Christmas place mat finished shows you the first installment on something that took me a long time to finish.
Lastly, here are three different craft projects that make fantastic gifts for kids. I featured two of these in the "March archive" post on my regular blog, but I know that not everyone reads both blogs, so I am featuring them here as well.
Chefs' hats are a surefire gift for any child who enjoys cooking or dressing up. As you can see, this birthday boy decided his gift made a great party hat!
This Crocheted chocolate doughnut is a simple and fun project to make for kids who like playing with felt food. You wouldn't let a baby or toddler play with it because of the beads, but older kids would be fine with it.
I showed these on my regular blog today also, but these Felt Play Mats are so cute.
If you missed these posts the first time around, I hope you have enjoyed reading them this time!
