Crafting Day! Two Freebies for the Holidays!

We had a crafting day at our house yesterday!!!  My children have numerous food allergies, so for the past four years, we've had a crafting day instead of a baking day!

We made snowman jars for almond bard pretzels, a JOY sign, and NOEL letters!

Snowman Jar Materials:
-mason jar
-almond bark

This was pretty easy.  We melted almond bark and dipped the pretzels in them.  Then once they dried (we laid them out on wax paper), we put them in the jar.  We added buttons and a red ribbon for a scarf!  Here are the gift tags :)

Joy Sign Materials:
-Scrapbook paper

Download this template.  I printed it on scrapbook paper that looked kind of rustic.  Then I punched holes in it and ran ribbon through it!

NOEL Sign Materials:
-modge podge
-spray finish
-spray paint

I first spray pained the letters. Once they were dry we covered them in modge podge and spread glitter all over them.  After shaking off the excess glitter we had to do some touch up spots.  After it dried, I sprayed it with acrylic finish. Make sure to keep the spray about 18 inches away from the letters.  This will help not dull the glitter, but will seal the glitter.

**A special thanks to Melonheadz for the graphics on the gift tags and Cara Carroll for the font on JOY!
