I also decided we would have a Christmas tree for Arabella in her playroom made out of only handmade ornaments.
Arabella is rolling out her Salt Dough here. I brought the ingredients outside so she could make as big of a mess as she wanted. You use 1 cup salt, 1 cup flour and 1/2 water. Mix, press out then cut the shapes you want with a cookie cutter. Bake at 300 for 30 minutes.
Of course we had to add some glitter to ours. The glitter didn't stick so well, so we got some glitter glue pins and colored them some more after they cooled down.
This is our centerpiece I made with those new colors I love. I also made these napkins.
You can find these balls at Joann's or Hobby Lobby for only a couple of bucks.
We made this snowman out of our fabric pumpkins that I used in the fall.
We made these Christmas trees out of brown paper bags and fabric.
Yes, that is a tutu on the Christmas tree. : )
I made this little pillow case top for Arabella's birthday and just put a red ribbon on it.
The moment that makes it truly feel like Christmas is when we go to Lamoyne (its an art gallery that transforms into a winter wonderland of Christmas ornaments) with my Dad. We have gone every year to pick out an ornament since I can remember. Here is that precious moment with Arabella and Jojo.
Arabella Angel wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Peaceful New Year!
