Our studio table is currently a bit full of holiday-related projects, a bit more on the craft side of things.
I’ve got a wooden snowman ornament I picked up on a whim, to paint for my two-year-old, who seems to have a thing for snowmen. Those green squares in the middle are from a handknit sock that I didn’t feel like darning, so I felted it and cut squares out of it, thinking we might make a wreath decorations like this one, if I get around to it. In the back you can just barely see some bottle cap magnets in progress, and let’s get a closer look at the glass baubles.
These are painted ornaments, destined to be teacher gifts, if the paint ever dries (I’m a little worried about that!). The boys chose the paint combinations for their teachers, truly thinking about what colors they might like. (“I always see Miss ___ wearing light blue, so I’ll use that color in hers.”) So while we’ve been busy in the studio, it’s more elf-work than anything else, although I’ll file this post under color for those glorious color combinations.
*My two-year-old has a curious and strong attachment to “Holly Jolly Christmas,” resulting in that song being on repeat for hours at a time. I’ve no doubt this Christmas will be remembered as our holliest and jolliest!
Are you up to any elf-work lately?
