For me, Christmas starts with the Advent season, November 27th in 2011, and goes to Epiphany on January 6th, the day we celebrate the Magi giving their gifts to the baby Jesus.
So this weekend we took down the tree and packed up the decorations.
Over the Christmas season, I made over 100 little decorations. I already blogged about the tiny angels, but here is a huge set I bought in December.
I love having projects ready on my work table near the living room. My daughter and granddaughter helped finish off the snowmen. These are a great project for a family with the younger kids doing the easier parts and the adults the gluing and bending wires.
So here are some of the ornaments we made:
I love these large stars. I hung them from the valance in the dining room.
