Happy Christmas in July!

I have been so excited for this day to arrive as I am sharing the celebration with three friends who love Swedish Dala Horses as much as I do.

A Little Christmas in July Tree Ornament

P1110473

Weaving both sides of a small cardboard loom = weaving two cool holiday tree ornaments at the same time.

These trees measure about 4 1/2" and are not only great ornaments, but would be beautiful tied onto a package. Hang several in a window or create a garland. Make big ones and little ones and mix them up in a display. My crafty online family is a brilliant lot, so I know there are lots of cool ways these will be used.

I know! I KNOW! Christmas is officially over!

But... it is not a minute too soon to start making gifts for next year. After all Christmas is only 342 days away, and believe me that is not as much time as you think for making holiday gifts!

My first 2011 holiday gift project - ornaments and small decorations starting with this whimsical little Tomke or Nisse.

Quick and Easy Reuse Project! Make Beautiful Holiday Decorations Using Old Baskets!

My unglamorous beauty shot! But I don't think it takes away from how cool these turned out!

My little recycled basket ornaments were inspired by two internet friends - Margit whose blog Papirklip og Aesker is full of the most wonderful Danish inspired, downloadable paper ornaments and Heather whom you all know from Dollar Store Crafts.
