Christmas Crafts

I can’t believe how long it’s been since posting.  Just busy.  I am very behind posting this, since Christmas has past, but here it is now.  Had another Pinterest party and here’s what was made.

1. JOY ($15 – $20)

I found the wood letters and bell stand at JoAnns.  You can find similar wood letters at Michaels or Hobby Lobby but I liked the quality, size, and font of these.
