Today is a FUN DAY, girls! It's a second installment of our Holiday Hop!
I've partnered up with some great ladies to bring you a one stop shop for great Christmas ideas.
Today I present to you the easiest, funnest (yes, I'm aware that's not a word) and silliest Christmas craft around. I got everything out to make my original plan (popsicle stick nativities) but didn't have the supplies that we needed (GASP!) and so we went with Plan B.
I grabbed three pictures of the kids, printed them off BIG, pulled out a bunch of craft supplies and we got to work.
We cut out hats, shirts and pants out of construction paper and then the kids had free range decorate as they pleased. I cut out Griffins pieces, drew Mason's pieces for him to cut an Luke drew and cut out his own pieces.
We used crayons, pom poms, glitter, jewels and lots and lots of glue and construction paper.
It was fun to see the kids put their own spin on their elves.
When we were done we took them outside and snapped a few photos of the kids with their elves :)
Griffin was a fan of the jewels and I was a big fan of the pom pom she plopped right in the middle of her shirt.
Luke chose Christmas colors and even put a monogram on his shirt. That's my boy!
Oh, Mason. :) He spent the longest on his elf and he had a total vision he wanted to accomplish.
He loaded his elf down with embellishments and I couldn't love it more.
And it wouldn't be a craft post without Mason's Crazy Craft Face!
Dave and I were joking that they look like those JibJab elves :)
I have a feeling that these are going to be pulled out every year I love them so much!
And here's some real for you :) hahaha I hung them on the artwire in the boys room and probably should have made Mason's bed before. #reallife
