I cannot believe that this the final Craft of Christmas! It seems like just yesterday that I was typing up the first post in this series! And because I imagine that most of you are like me and need a few little last minute gifts, here are a few of my favorite quick gifts: Beaded Bookmarks, Holiday Scented Ornaments and Chunky Crayons…as well as a few links to other fun and fast ideas.
Break them up into small pieces(an inch or less) and fill each muffin cup with broken pieces.
When the pan is cool enough to touch, place in freezer. This will make the wax shrink enough to pop them out easily.
If that happens, just pop them back in the oven and re-melt them and then re-cool them.
You will need: 1 cup of applesauce, 1 cup of ground cinnamon(that’s roughly one regular size spice container full), plain white glue, cookie cutters, straw, ribbon
(I had to add cinnamon because it was a little runny, so make sure you have extra cinnamon on hand.)
Then use the straw to punch out holes at the top so you can later add a ribbon.
I found that it was easiest to cut them out on paper plates and leave them there to air dry.
(Trying to move them while still “wet” was really hard to do.)
So yummy, actually, that the dog ate one! So make sure to put them high up on the tree.
Other fun, fast ideas:
