Christmas Decorations Christmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

ElfWorks and Ervserver are great for craft ideas. ElfWorks posted an idea on how to make a nice Christmas wreath. Erv makes really cool things with his power tools and some wood. I bought some plain colored Christmas ball ornaments and I am painting Christmas trees and snow flakes on them. Check out these sites for some ideas

I posted how to make lighted pine cone baskets here: link.

They can be customized, have scent added, and look nice.

um...

You could make a gift bow tree or wreath. you make a circular cutout then get some green gift bows and put the around the circle and put a big red gift bow in the center, punch a hole at the top and VOILA you have a quick and inexpensive craft idea
