I’ve been so inspired to get crafting for the holidays after looking through this year’s Handmade Holidays entries. By the end of the month, my home will be a winter wonderland full of crafts inspired by you. After spending way too long oohing and aahing over all of your wonderful projects, I hunkered down and got to work selecting our winner. Congratulations to this year’s randomly selected winner… Brandy W. from Zanesville, OH!
“For this wall hanging I took a plain white canvas and painted it green and after it was dry I used a Tim Holtz layering stencil for the background. Next, I used Distress Inks on a piece of manila file folder and then embossed it using the Tim Holtz Christmas embossing folder. I then used the following Tim Holtz dies: Window, mini cardinal, garland, crescent moon and stars, stacked boxes. I cut the Christmas tree out with my Cricut.”
Here are some more wonderful entries, and because this blog post would otherwise be way too long, you can see even more on our Facebook.
“Dainty Dollies from other lands Ornaments This is a set of felt ornaments made by my own patterns, cut out and i use tacky glue to adhere them together. They are stuffed with polyfil and i use gold cord for the hangers.” – Linda H. from Naugatuck, CT.
“This 10 inch deer scene is crafted from tree bark with artificial snow. It is designed with a fawn figurine, artificial greenery, paper holly and flowers, and baby pine cones.” – Karen J. from Cheyenne, WY.
I love to make wreaths with either just plain raffia or I use greens. I give them as gifts and it doesn’t take too much..just some twine and hot glue and the wreath base and I love to do thing for my kids to help with. they love any fun filled project and it helps keep them off their digitial electronics 🙂

“This is a lighted wine bottle. Supplies are wine bottle, ribbon, lights, glass drill bit, spray paint. I cut the saying out on vinyl on the zing. Sprayed the bottle with paint then took off the vinyl. I drilled a hole in the back to insert lights. Then I just decorated it with ribbon.” – Laura M. from Green River, WY.
“This Christmas Village was created using my Cricut machine and various cartridges. The reindeer were cut from fabric prints, glued to cardboard and cutout. The moon was a cardboard circle I cutout and painted. I had so much fun creating this!” – Peggy E. from Englewood, OH.
“I used my left over pieces of fabric and felt and made an Advent Calendar for Christmas with little animals, toys, and Christmas items you take off of the velcro tabs and stick into that day’s pocket. All hand sewn and pieced together with stuffing in the little items to make them more 3D.” – Jennifer P. from Angola, IN.
