A Red Christmas




Every year I try to do a color theme for our Christmas decorations.  I've done blue for the last several years - this year I decided to go red.  Red and white lights, the lath ornaments we made the other day, and red and silver ornaments.  I even purchased a new tree skirt to go match. 




I was inspired by this pin on Pinterest to make these cute Santa hats.  I think they turned out great.

LATH CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS





Several summers ago, my mom had to renovate her living room - I had her save me some lath from the demo to use for crafts.  Now several years later, I finally have.  I found a couple of pins over on Pinterest and decided this would be our family Christmas ornaments/crafts for this year.  We do ornaments every year -  usually the weekend after Thanksgiving. 



I made several









The husband made three






And the kids each made a few also.




 Not a bad way to spend several hours with the family.
