The following Christmas crafts were made from yard sale and/or thrift store finds.
I bought a Badge a Minit at a thrift store last year. It came in a box with lots of supplies and I think I only paid a dollar for it. I love it!
I'm making Christmas badges. The snowflake, trees and angel were made from Christmas material I got at yard sales. The gingerbread face is a graphic I resized from Craftymugs site. I think I am going to make some from Christmas wrapping paper, too.
This next craft is an icicle ornament. I got a box of plastic icicles at a yard sale. I've bought the glass ones before, also. They work good for this craft, too.
Supplies needed: icicles, 22 guage wire, ribbon, decoupage, glitter, and blue beads.
Step One: Put decoupage onto the icicle.
Step Two: Sprinkle glitter onto decoupage.
Step Three: Cut off a length of wire, insert one end into hole at top of icicle, bend into any shape you want for the hanger.
Step Four: Make a bow out of your ribbon. It would be better to use a smaller width ribbon than what I used. I used the wide ribbon because that is what I had on hand. I folded it in half to make it smaller.
Finished ornament. I also glued a blue bead on the end of the hanger.
Next are high heel ornaments. I thought these would look good on a Victorian themed Christmas tree. I found a box of these glass high heels at a thrift store. As soon as I saw them, I said to myself "These would make great ornaments!"
Here is what you will need: the glass high heels, pearl beading, small bunches of flowers. The beads and flowers can usually be found at Wal Mart or a craft store. I'm sorry, but I have no idea where you can find the high heels.
Here is a close up of the glass high heel. They were in a box of 12. I only paid 50 cents for the entire box.
I used a glue gun to attach a single flower at the bottom of the shoe. I cut a length of the pearl beading and hot glued both ends underneath the shoe where the heel is for the hanger.
I hope you enjoyed these crafts. Try making some for your tree. They are very easy to make.
