Look what I found...

...when Mary and I were going through the Christmas decorations at church:

This reindeer craft is adorable! He's made out of a colored light bulb (you know the kind that used to adorn many Christmas trees back in the 80's). Pipe cleaners were twisted to make his antlers. Then googly eyes and a pom pom nose were glued on. I suppose you can hot glue a magnet on the back side of him and stick him on your fridge. And I'm sure you can come up with different animals and characters to make from these old light bulbs.

This classic braided wreath is in good shape. It could be easily hung on a tree. Just take three pieces of holiday fabric, braid and join the ends together (tie or glue). Then, place a pretty bow on top--voila!

It was so neat finding these cute "vintage" decorations. Kids can join you in putting these together and it would be a great time spent together. Happy crafting!
