I can go on and on about crafting. I have tried quite a few of them since I was a stay at home mom and had time on my hands when the kids started school.

Right now I'm building doll houses and I just bought myself a knitting machine. My first project on that is an afghan for one of my nieces.

I love doing crafts. Since I do scouts with my kids crafts is a major part of it. I like to learn new things. So, if anyone finds any kid-friendly sites that can help me find new crafts to do, Please let me know. Thank you and have a great day!

You might want to check out http://www.about.com. They have a lot of different kinds of crafts there. It's actually a search engine but it has a section for crafting.

Christmas Decorations Ideas
Pine Cone Christmas Tree

You'll need:
Dry Pine Cones
Green Glitter

Paint the pine cone with glue.
Before the glue dries, sprinkle
with green glitter.
Top with a paper star. When it dries you can glue on sequins
or tinsel. Stand on the base for a Mini- Christmas Tree or hang by adding a tie.
If you cannot find open pine cones. Place some in a 200 degree oven on a cookie sheet.
They will open as they dry.

Candy Cane Reindeer

You'll Need:
6 inch wrapped Candy Cane
2 wiggle eyes
Red or Brown pom pom
2 pipe cleaners
Craft glue or glue gun

Leave the wrapping on the candy cane. Glue eyes on rounded face of the candy cane. Glue red pompom on the face for a nose. Tie ribbon into a bow on the straight part of the candy cane. Cut one of the pipe cleaners in half. Wrap the full pipe cleaner around the crook of the candy cane to begin the antlers. Use the cut pipe cleaners to manipulate into antlers.

Christmas Tree Ornament

Use last year's Holiday cards to make a new ornament.

You'll need:
Frozen Juice can lid
Construction paper
Old Christmas cards.

Cut a favorite picture from a card. Using the juice can lid,
trace and cut a circle from
the construction paper.
Glue the picture onto the paper and the paper onto
the lid.
Here's a job for Mom or dad?
Use a glue gun to attach a paper clip to the lid for a hanger.

You can spray paint the lids in gold, green or red to add
a bit more. If you have particularly creative Kids, they
can glue objects onto their lids!

My kids love this one!

Pasta Christmas Wreaths

You'll Need:
Small Paper Plates
A Variety of Different Pasta
Silver or Gold Spray Paint

Cut center out of the paper plate. Glue pasta noodles around the outer ring, completely cover the paper plate. Let glue dry and then spray paint the desired color. Use a Glue gun to add the bow!
I still have the wreath I made in Kindergarten!

Pretzel Wreath
Perfect for a country Christmas!

You'll Need:
Little Pretzels
Curling Ribbon

String the curling ribbon through the pretzels.
Use an over-under /under- over pattern so that the pretzels will lay flat. Apply glue to secure each pretzel as you form a circle. Add another layer of pretzels onto the top. Glue on a Sprig of pine or
holly and this makes a beautiful gift.
Tip: Consider gluing the wreath onto a paper plate or a circle of cardboard for extra security.
