Hand Crafted Christmas Decorations

Today I thought I'd share a few of the handcrafted holiday decorations that I have created and decorate with each year. If you're looking for some holiday craft projects, they just may provide some inspiration. I hope you enjoy them.

This first one is a 6x6 plaque that has been altered with scrapbooking and stamping supplies. I love this Santa. Right now I have this on my new painted dresser/sideboard.

While I don't quite have my tree up yet, we'll be doing that tomorrow and hanging this paper mache star ornament from it.

This little paper mache wall hanging hangs on a hook at my back door.

I loved wrapped candles and this is one I created last year.

Here's another little wooden plaque. They make great design surfaces. This plaque is in the current issue of Crafts 'n Things magazine.

And lastly, I couldn't resist using that Santa image again for another decoration for the tree. It could also be tied onto a present for a special gift tag.

This post links up with The Inspired Room's Holiday Linky Party.

Have a wonderful weekend!
