Tutorial Craftstick Nativity Scene | Buy on Amazon Popsicle Craft Sticks $4.99
I know they’re just popsicle sticks but I have to say these are the nicest quality sticks I’ve ever purchased! Smooth, no knots, and strong. I use mine for mixing sticks and model work…but they’d be above-average for art projects.
Tutorial Easy Paper Angel Tutorial | Buy on Amazon Construction Paper $2.18
I’ve ordered this paper in a variety of colors many times over the last couple years. It always arrives in good time and is a nice quality. Its a really good weight and has a nice texture to it.
Tutorial Bubble Wrap Painting Christmas Craft | Buy on Amazon Bubble Cushioning Wrap $13.99
Bought this so my grandkids had something to pop, stretch out 2 pieces 36 feet long and they got to run up and down the driveway then rode their bikes on it, had a blast!
Tutorial Christmas Candle Craft | Buy on Amazon Paint $24.49
Exactly what I wanted. The paint I get at the craft store is expensive and thick but I needed a paint that was inexpensive and slightly runny, and these are perfect.
Tutorial Christmas Tree Craft | Buy on Amazon Wood Log Sticks $12.49
Love these sticks! We built miniature shelters for a terrarium out of them. They are easy to cut for different lengths and look so realistic in the project.
Tutorial Nativity Egg-Box Scene | Buy on Amazon Peg Dolls $12.99
Great quality. I have a 2 and 3 year old that adore these. We have painted some with crayola paint. Some have been colored with markers. They have held up great, worked great for their doll house and for crafts.
Tutorial Hot Chocolate Mug Card | Buy on Amazon Cricut $227
My wife loves this thing and for that reason so did I. Seeing the pure joy in her eyes was rivaled only by things like our wedding day and our children’s births.
Tutorial Salt Dough Ornaments | Buy on Amazon Crayola Air-Dry Clay $7.64
A lot softer than I thought it would be. It’s the perfect texture. To make it smoother dip your finger in water and rub it on your figure
Tutorial Snowman Place Setting | Buy on Amazon White Lunch Plates $15.92
I love these Corelle dishes. I am the cook for all holidays in my family, so wanted to get dishes that would hold up for a while. I got the whole set of these: dinner plates, desert plates, lunch plates, cereal bowls, soup bowls, platters, cups, and saucers.

Tutorial Colorful Paper Christmas Tree | Buy on Amazon Star Punch $15.85
My biggest challenge here is that I start making stars and don’t stop. I have enough gold stars to last another lifetime. They are fun to glue onto all sorts of things.
Tutorial Felt Christmas Ornaments | Buy on Amazon Assorted Color Felt $5.22
These worked out perfect for my project! they have a bit of stiffness to them that I wasn’t expecting, which turned out to be absolutely needed!
