Cinnamon Spice Balls. Wonderfully fragrant bowl fillers made of applesauce, cinnamon and cloves. Easy and great! I have the receipt posted at A Primitive Path site.
Poinsettia Ornament made of Dried Cayenne Peppers. Simply glue dried peppers onto a cardboard 'doughnut' and string it up with a cotton twine and hang on the tree.
Mr. H. made the base for the Noah and Co. Tree. I added an artificial tree to the wooden base and made the animals of plaster of paris poured into a candy mold. Tiny 'hay bales' are raffia tied off with cotton twine.
Close-up of my tree topper angel. She lives on a secretary in my bedroom throughout the year but I place her in a prominant place on the tree. She is completely handstitiched from vintage linens. Her wings are hand quilted cotton. The face is embroidered and penned with Black Walnut ink. She holds a bouquet of ceramic flowers and silk ribbons. Her hair is white Alpaca fur. She is such an angel to me and I call her Gloria.
Handmade and prim Christmas is really what keeps us in touch with the simplicity of the season. A time to celebrate our Lord with simple things.
Thanks Misi for making me think again!
