**Full Disclosure: The following is part of Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores® Celebrate the Season campaign. I received a Jo-Ann gift card in exchange for this post; however, all opinions are my own.
Every season, I say that time of year is my favorite … so here we go again! Christmas is my favorite time of year! The season brings back a flood of memories and emotions for me. The time spent with my family, my uncle pretending to be Santa Claus, spending hours playing Skip-Bo and all the delicious food!
But there is more; I love all the lights, colors and decorations! There are so many beautiful things to look at. Am I right?
Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores asked if I would make fabulously festive crafts, and who am I to say no?!
I came up with two ridiculously cute crafts for my home! A Christmas Fleece Rag Wreath and a Rudolph Mason Jar Craft! The how-to directions follow.
Christmas Fleece Rag Wreath
- Three colors of fleece – I used 1/2 yard of red and green and 1/4 yard of white.
- Wreath frame
- Rotary Cutter
- Self-Healing Mat
- Straight-edge (I used a yard stick.)
- Cut the fleece into 1/2 inch by 5 inch strips. (I used a straight-edge and eyeballed it, but 0.5×5 was my goal.)
- Tie the fleece onto the wreath frame.
- Put it on your table or wreath hanger and enjoy!
Rudolph Mason Jar Craft
What You’ll Need:
- Mason Jar(s)
- Spray glue
- Brown glitter
- Brown Fun Foam
- Wiggly eyes
- Red pom-poms
- Hot glue gun & sticks
- Wash & thoroughly dry the mason jar(s).
- OUTSIDE: Spray a thick layer of glue into the jar, pour the glitter onto the glue and roll it around until the inside of the jar is completely covered.
- Once you are satisfied with the glitter coverage and the glue is dry, replace the mason jar lid.
- Turn the jar over (lid side down). You’ll want the ‘worded’ side of the glass at the back.
- Cut antlers and ears out of your brown fun foam, and hot glue onto the jar. (You can print the templates I used here.)
- Using a hot glue, add two wiggly eyes and a red pom-pom nose to make the face.
- Let dry.
