I found a picture online of a great winter greens hanging basket, so I enlisted the help of my Aunt (who is a florist) for some help on this. We gathered greens and berries from the grounds of a historic home in Louisville. I think it’s a great way for you to teach kids about nature as well as get their help to put these great baskets together.
Last year I decided I was not going to give into the Christmas wrapping paper. I really don’t like 99% of it and I wanted to spend my money on something creative rather than wrapping paper. I found some butcher paper (or you can use craft paper). Then I discovered that I could use my scrap booking tool, Cricut machine, to create a wonderful gift tag. I got some great festive gold, red, white & silver scrap booking paper. Then I made all the cuts I needed to and used my sticker maker. Some of the gifts I used initials and others I used the whole name. Then for the final touch I used different textures of ribbon and yarn to create bows. These gifts ended up looking more like my christmas decorations than cluttered gifts below the tree.
