Homemade Holiday

We are trying to give mostly homemade gifts this year. It has been really fun making all the presents. We made paper mache pear ornaments last night, they turned out really great. We’re painting them tonight. I’ll put up the final results and a little tutorial tomorrow. I’m also working on a big list of advent calendar activities that I’ll post later this week.

    I LOVE the idea of homemade gifts, especially when everyone has so much STUFF. Cute pears.

    Fun idea Jordan. Did you guys use light bulbs or balloons to get the shape?

    Found your wonderful blog through Chelsea at frolic. I just did a post about having a homemade Christmas too. But so far, mine are just ideas, you are ahead of me, having actually made beautiful things. Can’t wait to see the final results.

    You’ve inspired me to actually try and make these for my Mother-in-Law to be. She’s very Smith and Hawken and the pears would be just perfect!! Can’t wait for the details of how to make them.
