Christmas Nostalgia

Sometimes when I watch the old Christmas movies where the set and plot are simple and wonderful and the story is not constructed around a glitched text that causes the hero to miss his love at Christmas, I wish we could go back in time during the holidays. Real live sleigh rides, bundled-up caroling, drinking wassail (who even knows what wassail is anymore!?) around a fire where actual logs are burning… it sounds so dreamy. Even though I might get sick of it within a few days, I still want to try.
It got me thinking about homemade things, namely Christmas decor. Here are a few to sample. Maybe this year you should try something homemade too? It’s kind of fun to go ‘back in time’ and use your creativity with a bit of a Christmas facilitation to help!

Little Rudolf I made in 2nd grade. We have to glue new antlers on every year, but it's worth it!

Years ago, my sister made and sold these candy canes, turned reindeer, turned Christmas ornaments/party favors. They are still so fun and easy to make!

Got to love all the uses for a light bulb! It's amazing what googly eyes can do!
