Make-Ahead Projects 1

Christmas 2016 is over, but you're probably not thinking about Christmas 2017 yet. However, these winter days and evenings could be the perfect time to start working on items for next Christmas. To end the month of December, I have a series of posts with simple projects that can be used as Christmas gifts, decor or as embellishments on your Christmas packaging next year.

We'll start with some easy and inexpensive ornaments you could do with your kids or grandkids. I picked up a bag of cookie cutters at Dollar Tree.

The only other item needed for this project was yarn. I found a skein at Walmart that would coordinate with our tree and decor in our great room. I wrapped the yarn around and around the cookie cutter until it was completely covered.

Then, I tied the 2 loose ends together to form a loop for hanging.

Super simple - and all 6 were finished very quickly.

Next up: An easy way to make a pillar candle holder look a little more like Christmas.

All is well in the Keweenaw.
