This Christmas is becoming a crafty one…as in cool crafts.
I have decided to ditch the lame foam crafts that have made Oriental Trading what is today and focus on crafts that are actually homemade and attractive. I have never been a huge fan of the foam frames, sleighs, Crosses or almost anything made out of popsicle sticks. I don’t put them out for display and I DON’T hang them on my tree. You may call me a Grinch, uncaring, or even a bad word but if it takes my children a millisecond to create it then it wasn’t worth the time and there was no creative process involved.
And it probably looks like crap.
Crap = No Tree
I bring you the first of our homemade crafts:
Orange Clove Christmas Balls
Notice the robot. Courtesy of my five year old.
They really smell great. I was actually wondering how they would smell and I was pleasantly surprised.
Our next endeavor is Cranberry Garland.
