Heart-Felt Holidays

Some people have all of their holiday shopping done by the end of October. I admire those people, but I can tell you with all certainty that I will never be able to join their organized ranks. Today, the day after Thanksgiving, is the day I make my holiday card list, start planning gifts to buy and goodies to bake, and deck my halls with my much-loved collection of Christmas decorations.

This year, I’m planning to add to that collection by making the Mistletoe Kissing Ball from Heart-Felt Holidays (see inside the book here!). Designed by Amanda Carestio (who just happens to sit 10 feet away from me here at Lark), this little felt project is easy to make while you’re sitting on the couch trying to recuperate from turkey (and macaroni and cheese and sweet potato casserole) overload. Download the pattern, grab some felt and a cute gingham ribbon, and in no time, you’ll have a beautiful, handmade holiday sphere to hang in your home! (And don’t forget to check out Fa-La-La-La Felt at BN.com, where you can find even more ideas for Christmas crafting.)

May your holiday season be merry and bright – and filled with handmade crafts!

Mistletoe Kissing Ball

    I love this idea. I plan on making them for my daughter and son and their families for next Christmas. The only problem with this is that mistletoe has white berries. I think I’ll use small white beads or pearls instead of the red. Otherwise people may think it’s a holly ball and no one will get kissed!
