Every year I make a craft at Christmas time. I have not even started the one that I am making this year but it shouldn't take too long. I just thought I would share some pictures of ones that I have made. I make one for myself and more for friends and family. I just love to do it! Enjoy!

Well, the spindles from the 2nd one I bought at Menards...I'm not sure if they have Menards everywhere...but it is like Home Depot. All of the other wood I have somebody cut for me. I am fortunate enough to know somebody that has all of the equipment that can do all of that for me. And everything else I get at Wal-Mart, Michaels....stores like that.

I'm glad you like them! I just love to make them! This year I am making a Santa. I will post that pic when I get them finished. My wood is all cut and ready to start painting. I will probably wait until the weekend to work on them!

I have actually thought about selling some of them Triss because I have had people ask me if I would sell them.......but I think that would take all of the fun out of it. I like to give them as gifts. You never know.....I might change my mind! Duh

It does not take all the fun out especially if you are doing it on YOUR time and not on a clock. I have made extras of things I do for the family and sold them, makes for some extra cash during the holidays.

Well maybe I will have to do it one year then and just see how it goes! I really enjoy making them and people are always happy to receive them!

Oh that would be a good idea Penny! Never thought of that! I made 7 of those 1 year and I filled them all with the same stuff. I liked the lights in it! But, I will have to see what a pointsettia would look like!!!
