Chenille Wreaths 


Borax Snowflakes

This is such a fun idea. Not only is it a pretty winter craft, but it’s also a science experiment. 


Toilet Paper Tube Penguin

I love this! I know that mine would never come out this cute but it’s a fun idea for the kids.


Snow Globes

This is from Martha Stuart so of course the embellishments are on the fancier side but you could be as simple as you like with this.


Pine Cone Bird Feeder

Keep your Winter dwelling feathered friends fed and the kids (and cats) entertained with some Winter bird watching.


Salt Crystal Snowflakes

Similar to the Borax snowflakes but with salt instead.

I just love this! 


Glitter Macaroni Snowflakes

A new twist on the time honored macaroni crafts.


Glitter Snowflakes

Very pretty and made with toilet paper tubes. Is there no limit to how creative one can be with toilet paper tubes?

I love these, too. 


Paper Bag Snowman
