Winter Holiday Hop

Last night got down to the 30’s here in McKinney, Texas and the count down for Thanksgiving and Christmas are getting me more in the spirit!  I’ve seen people setting up their trees already and I’m so excited for the REAL trees to be available so we can scurry out to grab one and get our decorations started.  I was thinking about some crafts that I love to do with my kids and wanted to dig them up and share them again. 

I am joining with a group of ladies who are also showcasing some great Winter Holiday Ideas!  Check them all out! I’m honored to be teamed up with them!

I am in love with my kids feet.  At this point we haven’t hit the stinky & smelly feet stage and I love capturing their little toes and feet by incorporating it into my holiday d├ęcor!  There are many ideas of how to stamp your little piggies!  I decided to make individual Christmas tree’s with my son and 2 daughters.  I painted the star on myself and added the trunk below each.  I tried to make them all a little bit different (trunks) to give them all character.  Simply painted their toes red and the base of their feet green and angled them to be in a tree formation.

I was on a roll with their lil’ feet and decided to try making reindeer for their feet.  At the time, Rayne was just 2 1/2 months old and her eyes were blue.  I decided to give each reindeer the same eye colors as my kiddos to match their feet.  All you have to do is stamp their feet in brown paint and press on a canvas!  I drew the antlers on with a sharpee but doubt you’d ever know by looking at it.  I decided to add a red fuzz ball to their noses to give them more spunk.

I have these hanging on our wall all year long and can’t wait to compare their feet each year as they get bigger!  There are endless ideas out there for cute holiday crafts with your kids!  Just thought I’d share my favorites with you to get you started!  Check out these ideas linked up!  There is a giveaway HERE so don’t miss it!
