PINE CONE ORNAMENT
We would like to thank Creative
Craft House, for allowing us to use the Pine Cone Ornament taken from
their book "Creative Fun Crafts for Kids".
These ornaments can be hung to decorate the home, given
as gifts or heaped in a decorative basket as take home favors for visitors
during the holiday season.
- 1 large pine cone
- 3 Christmas picks, holly leaves & berries or pine
- 1 1/2 yards red satin or velvet ribbon 1/4" to 5/8"
- 24 gauge wire
- Wire cutters
- Craft glue and craft stick
Make a hanging loop from
6" piece of ribbon by knotting the two ends together. Wire and glue
the knot to the top of the pine cone.
Cut the stems of the Christmas picks to 1/2" length.
Arrange the three picks around the ribbon hanger and attach using both
wire and craft glue to anchor them in place. With the remaining ribbon
form 2 shoestring bows and attach them one on each side of the hanger loop.
Options: The pine cone can be dipped in hot scented wax
and sprinkled with glitter. Cloves can be glued on and between the scales
of the pine cone. Cinnamon sticks can be added to the picks on top for
scent and decoration. Snow paint or flocking can be used to enhance the
- 2 pieces light brown felt 4 1/2" square
- White fabric paint with writer tip
- Craft glue and craft stick
- Small amount of stuffing
- Pearl cotton or carpet thread for hanger
- Small red or green bow
- Light cardboard for template if making multiples
Trace the pattern piece onto light cardboard to make a
template. Cut 6" lengths of the carpet thread or Pearl cotton and
knot the two ends together. Set aside.
Using the template trace the outline of the gingerbread
ornament on the felt and cut them out. Using the picture as a guide paint
the features and trim on half of the ornaments. Arrange in pairs. Spread
glue around the outside edge of the undecorated ornament placing a small
amount of stuffing in the center and press the decorated ornament onto
the glue making sure you have lined up the edges all the way around.
When you reach the top of the head be sure to add a knotted
loop of thread for the hanger. Glue a tiny bow at the neck for a boy and
on the head for a girl ornament.
Options: To make a garland thread 8" lengths of 1/4"
red or green ribbon in an embroidery needle. Take a stitch at the end of
the hand of one ornament into the hand of the next. Tie a bow and repeat
adding new ornaments to form a chain as long as you want.
Option 2: Fun Foam may be used in a single layer in place
of the felt. (It is firm enough as a single layer. Option 3: Do not stuff
and leave open at the top of the head. This can be used as a small gift
bag or money gift holder.
Option 4: In place of paint to decorate you can use white
embroidery floss and embroider the trim.

How often have you said "There must be an easier
way !"? Well, now there is. In this feature, our contributing crafters
share some of their secrets with you.
TIPS: (by Bluebonnet
- For candle tapers that have become curved place them
on a sheet of aluminum foil on a cookie sheet in a slightly warm oven.
This will allow them to relax and straighten. Place them in the refrigerator
until ready to use (this helps them to drip less).
- To save a large decorative candle carve back the melted
wax and cut out the used wick and place a tea light or votive candle in
the opening. This will allow you to burn just the votive candle and save
the decorative outer candle.
- With old cinnamon ornaments that have lost their scent
sand them lightly where it doesn't show using a find emery board. This
will release new scent.
- Potpourri can be refreshed by crushing it to break up
the pieces and stirring it.
- Hang a potpourri sachet in front of the heat registers
and this will spread the scent through the house.

Wendy is a special Christmas
present to all you crafters with children. Although her web site is craft
related Wendy has included many activities and ideas to help keep the children
busy. There are crafts, recipes and just "Mom I'm bored" activities
for children. A great number of these are holiday related and every summer
there is summer fun, special crafts and activities for the summer season.
Approximately three years
ago Wendy was surfing the web looking for craft ideas and craft recipes.
Being unable to find what she was looking for Wendy decided this information
was needed not only by herself, but by others and should be online. She
began developing web sites for both craft and craft recipes. A great number
of the projects have been submitted by her readers from around the world.
Wendy always gives credit to anyone who submits content for her web pages.
She also tries to answer
any questions sent to her or to put you in touch with someone who can offer
you the information you need.
Wendy has been crafting
for over thirty years and some of her favorites fall into the category
of general crafting using any material, paper mache, cross stitch, sketching,
woodworking, tie dying, home decor and baking. She volunteers at schools
and libraries assisting children with general crafts for holidays and special
occasions and her house is always full of kids creating and making fun
We highly recommend bookmarking

CRAFTY Q & A
In this feature, we invite readers to ask a crafting question.
Questions will be printed in each issue. We then would like for anyone
who has an answer to these questions to please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
In the following issue, we will print the questions, the
answers we received, and new questions for you to answer.
Please submit your crafting questions to email@example.com
Answers To Last Month's Question:
I have a case of the little spoons
that they use for sampling foods like the ones used at Sam's club. I have
a Girl Scout Troop and we're looking for some craft ideas to use them.
Any ideas will be appreciated. Nora
For the person wanting ideas for
using the sample spoons....
Using a permanent marker a simple
face for a Santa. Cut out a triangle of red felt and glue to the top, adding
a white pom pom to the point for a Santa hat. Where the red is glued to
the spoon, add a narrow strip of white felt for the band on Santa's hat.
Add a beard of poly fill by gluing to the lower portion of the face. Glue
a pin back to the back.
This Month's Questions:
- Does any one have a recipe for
I have been a crafter for over 16
years and as much as I do love crafting, I have become a little tired of
the hustle of creating and shipping out to craft malls. I would really
like to design now; new ideas are always forthcoming. I create many lovely
originals. My question is, how does a designer, experienced in the task
but new to the field, break into the designing world in an effort to become
published? Also, how is the pay? Sincerely, Cindy
FIMOsoft SNOWMAN ORNAMENT
"FIMOsoft is a special modeling
material for small hands with a big imaginations". This material can
be used over and over again as it remains soft until you harden it in an
ordinary oven. FIMOsoft is available in 12 colors that can be mixed and
kneaded to form completely new colors. It is available at your local craft
outlet as individual color blocks or in complete kits.
Although marketed for children I
can see many places an adult could use and enjoy this product. As always
for safety's sake we recommend adult supervision during the baking portion
of the project.
- FIMOsoft in the following amounts:
- 1 block of white
- 1/4 block black
- Small amount of red, green and yellow
- Jar, glass or rolling pin
- Plastic wrap to protect work surface
- Oven and adult supervision for the baking portion
- Cookie sheet
- Butter knife
Instructions: The FIMOsoft must be kneaded well until
it is soft and pliable before using. Begin with the white and work through
the next darker color washing your hands well between colors.
To form the Snowman divide the block into three pieces.
His bottom snow ball is formed from one half of the FIMOsoft block. His
head and mid section each require a quarter of a block. Form the bottom
snow ball by rolling the well kneaded half block between your palms until
you have formed a nice round ball. Set aside. Take one fourth of a block
and repeat the above to make his head and set it aside.
With your final one fourth block pinch off a piece as
big around as a pencil about 3/4" long. From this piece pinch a very
tiny amount, roll it in your palms to form a ball and place it in the center
of the head ball to make his nose. With your finger gently smooth out the
line where the nose joins the head so that you can't see a separate line
at all. Set the head aside for now.
Roll the remaining piece between your palms to form the
Snowman's middle. Set it aside and take your pencil size piece and roll
it into a small log. Break it in half and place half on each side of the
Snowman's middle to form it's arms. Again, smooth the joint with your finger
to blend in so you can't see the joint.
Place the middle section of the Snowman onto the bottom
and smooth the joint with your finger. Place the head on the middle, again
smoothing the joint. Set aside.
the small amount of red roll it out into a flat pancake and with your butter
knife cut a strip for his scarf. This can be cut in three pieces. The first
piece will go around the neck, the second and third pieces will hang down
from the neck forming the scarf. A piece slightly narrower than the scarf
to form the headband and a small sliver to make the Snowman's mouth. A
small amount of green is rolled out and cut and blended onto each end of
the scarf. Three small leaves to look like holly leaves are cut from the
The yellow is rolled out and a small U shaped piece is
cut out with your butter knife. Using a toothpick make tiny lines to look
like the straws of the broom. This is attached on the Snowman's right shoulder.
Take your black piece and pinch off an area, roll it out
and cut a circle just bigger than the Snowman's head. This will be the
brim of his hat. Form a short fat log slightly smaller around than the
brim of the hat and almost as tall as the Snowman's head. Attach this to
the center of the hat brim smoothing the joint. Place the small strip of
red around the base of the hat for his hat band. Place the three leaves
to cover the joint on the head band. This should be on the front left hand
side of the hat. Using any scraps of red that are left roll into three
tiny balls for holly berries and place them at the base of the leaves.
From the remaining black form four tiny balls. Place two
on his chest for buttons and the other two are used for his eyes. The handle
of the broom can be made by rolling a very thin worm from black and attaching
it to the base of the broom and down the front of the Snowman. At this
point curl the Snowman's arm around the broom handle to look like he is
holding the broom. Place on a foil lined cookie sheet.
With an adult to help set the oven to 265 degrees F. (that
is 130 degrees C) and "bake" 20 to 30 minutes.
DECORATED STATIONARY AND ENVELOPES
can cut a heart shape or follow the design in the picture. For example
if it shows flowers cut out one flower or one section of flowers and use
this as your design. If there is no definite design be careful that you
match the areas so the design on the envelope and stationary will look
- Plain white paper and envelopes
- Wrapping paper or tissue paper with a design on it
- Stick glue
- Markers in colors to match the design on your paper or
gold or silver metallic
Cut out two designs for each page and envelope combination
from the tissue or wrapping paper. Using the stick glue be sure you get
all the way to the edges of the cut out design and glue it in the return
address area of the envelope and on the top left corner of the stationary.
Using the marker outline just around of your design to
accent it. Set aside to dry thoroughly. Fold the stationary to the size
of the envelope stack them together. Add seven more and tie the bundle
of eight with a ribbon to match the colors in your design with a pretty
bow on top.
STAINED GLASS ORNAMENTS
These can be made using the clear Shrink Art
Plastic (Shrink only if you want tiny ornaments) or any clear plastic such
as the clear plastic cold drink bottles
- Template shapes (use pictures as guide)
- Black fine point Sharpie pen
- 8" gold cord for hanger
- Small piece of sandpaper
- Colored pencils or transparent glass stain paints
- Hole punch
If using colored pencils: with the sandpaper gently sand
the plastic with an up and down and then side to side motion roughing it
enough to hold the color of the pencil. Trace the outline of your chosen
ornament on the clear plastic using the Sharpie pen and fill in each area
with the glass stains or the colored pencils. Cut out each ornament and
punch a hole in the top for a hanger. Add the gold cord hanger.
If making miniature ornaments and you plan to shrink use
only the Shrink Art Plastic and the colored pencils and follow manufacturers
directions to shrink. Be sure you have an adult to help with this process.
- Felt in two Christmas colors (body of the mouse is one
color and the ears are a different color)
- Small black pompom
- 2 tiny wiggle eyes or small black beads
- 6" wrapped candy cane
- Thick craft glue and craft stick
- Light cardboard for template if making multiples
Using the pattern pieces cut templates. Trace the pattern
pieces on the felt with an air or water soluble pen or lightly with a pencil.
Cut out each piece just inside the line. Cut three slits in the body piece
where marked. Glue the two eyes placed as shown in the picture. Fold the
ears slightly and from the top side go through the first slit and then
up through the second slit. This will slightly gather the ear piece as
it passes through this slit so fan the ears back out once the candy cane
is in place.
There is a third slit placed on the rump of the mouse.
Insert the long end of the candy cane from the top into this slit, slide
it between the ear and the body part and attach to the nose end of the
body with a small amount of glue curving the sides slightly on the top
of the cane. Turn the candy cane with the curl up so it will look like
his tail is curled up toward his back. Glue the black pompom nose in place.
CINNAMON ROLL TREE
- Cookie Sheet
- Non stick spray
- 2 cans refrigerated cinnamon rolls
- Colored sugar sprinkles
- Aluminum foil
Cover the cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spray lightly
with non stick spray. Arrange the cinnamon rolls in the following pattern.
One at the top, then two, then three, then four, then five. The remaining
single roll is centered at the bottom to form the base of the tree. Brush
lightly with a little melted butter and bake following directions on the
can. When they come out of the oven drizzle with the prepared frosting
and sprinkle with colored sugar to decorate.
NEVER FAIL FUDGE
- 2/3 c. evaporated milk
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 2/3 c. sugar
- 2 Tbs. butter or stick margarine (not low fat)
Place in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook 4 to 5 minutes
stirring constantly. Timing depends on humidity. The higher the humidity
the longer you cook but never over 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat and immediately add 2 cups of miniature
marshmallows or cut up large marshmallows, 1 1/2 c. chocolate chips 1 1/2
cups broken nuts of your choice
Stir until smooth and blended and pour into a lightly
oiled pan 8" square.
- 1 Styrofoam cone
- Large round platter or plate
- Lettuce, parsley or other greens to cover the cone &
- 1 each large green and red Bell pepper with flat bottoms
- 2 small serving spoons
- 2 styles bottled dressing
- Variety of vegetables, pickles, olives and cheese cubes,
whole or cut in uniform sized pieces
- Small amount of floral clay
- Plastic wrap and zipper bags
Cut a slice off the top of each pepper and remove the
centers, wash, dry, cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator until
a small amount of floral clay on the bottom of the Styrofoam cone and anchor
it to the center of the platter. Using the toothpicks, pin the greens to
the cone to completely cover and add more around the base to cover the
platter. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Clean and prepare the
vegetables etc. They should be left whole if small or cut so all pieces
are about the same size.
Place a toothpick in each piece and place them in plastic
wrap or zipper bags by kind and refrigerate.
A few hours before the party arrange some of the veggies
in spirals around the cone alternating colors by sticking the end of the
toothpick into the cone. Arrange the red and green peppers one on either
side of the cone on the bed of greens and fill with the dressings, a Ranch
or Buttermilk style will look good in the red while Catalina or Thousand
Island will show well in the green. Place some of the remaining veggies
on the platter with the toothpicks up. The rest can remain refrigerated
to replenish as needed.
This makes a pretty centerpiece for a buffet table.
Options: Can be used on clothing, a wall hanging or
as a tree top.
- Fabric scraps of your choice
- Paper backed fusible web
- Fabric paint
- Light cardboard for template if making multiples
- Embellishments of your choice
- Options: Sewing machine or needle and thread
Trace or print out several copies of the angel. Cut out
each item as a separate pattern piece to form your template. Mark each
template on the right side. Trace each pattern piece onto the paper side
of the fusible web (be sure you have the same side of the template facing
up each time).
Rough cut around each pattern piece and iron it onto the
fabric pieces. (The face section on the flesh colored fabric, the hair
part on your choice of hair color, etc.)
Trace the entire outline of the angel onto fabric that
will form the base. Arrange the angel pieces using the finished picture
as your placement guide (if making a tree top angel cut two of these shapes).
When you have all the pieces arranged correctly lift them one at a time
and peel the paper backing off. Replace them and iron in place.
For the tree top angel place a second backing piece glued
or sewn to the back of the angel leaving it open at the bottom to form
a pocket that will slide over the top of the tree.
With the fabric paint or sewing, outline each piece sealing
the edges with the paint or sewing over the edges. Embellish your angel
with lace, charms or embellishments of your choice.
Option: you may use strands of yarn tacked or glued in
place for the hair, real ribbon for the bow on her apron and bouquet and
real tiny silk flowers in the bouquet. Her gown can be embellished with
glue on jewels, ribbon and braid trim. The tree top angel can be finished
on the back to represent the back of the angel.
These decorated egg shells can be
dyed with food coloring following the manufacturers instructions, painted
with acrylic paint or decorated with gift wrap cut-outs decoupaged in place.
This makes a spectacular display when you use more than one technique in
cleaned and dried egg shells
- Acrylic paint in the appropriate color
- Food coloring
- Tissue or gift wrap cut-outs
- Water based clear varnish or sparkle varnish
- Bead-it beads
- Sequins, stickers and embellishments of your choice
- Craft glue
- Glass bowl, preferably clear
- Green wreath, size that the bowl fits in center
- Option: Confetti
Save the blown egg shells until you have enough to generously
fill your chosen bowl with several left over. Using small pieces of plain
white stickers cover the holes in both ends of the egg. Dye or paint the
egg shells in the colors appropriate to the season you are celebrating.
You can also add additional bright colors to match your decor if you wish.
Set them aside to dry.
Glue stickers, colored stars or embellishments of your
choice to the colored eggs. You can make designs or stripes using the bead-it
beads or strips of masking tape to paint between to give you stripes or
let your imagination be your guide. Set aside to dry. When dry coat each
egg with water based acrylic varnish or sparkle varnish. A second coat
may be necessary.
When thoroughly dry fill the bowl and arrange a few among
the greenery around the bowl. Add a decorative bow to the wreath at the
front of the table or on each side of the table.
Option: Before you put both white sticker over the holes
in the egg half fill the egg with confetti through the largest hole and
then proceed as above. These decorated eggs are used to break over the
head of your guests by the children. A little messy but a lot of fun.

SWAG OR WREATH
This arrangement can be made for the
holiday using strictly holiday ribbon and embellishments. It can also be
made as a permanent arrangement using decorator colors to blend with your
decor and grapevine wreath or swag.
- Artificial pine/fir wreath or branches arranged in a
- A variety of miniature or tiny children's toys (McDonald's
and DQ toys work well as do dolls, Teddy bears and their furnishings)
- Christmas ribbon of your choice
- Craft glue
- Covered craft wire
- Chenille stems can be used in place of covered wire
- Wire cutters
If using a purchased wreath place small toys around the
wreath in an arrangement pleasing to you. Make a large bow and wire it
at either 6:00 or 12:00 o'clock on the wreath with the streamers wrapped,
extending around the wreath on either side. Wire the toys in place and
add a hanger at the back top of the wreath.
If you are making a swag you can use a purchased swag
or begin with the longest branches one on each side with the stems crossing
at the middle. Add additional branches to fill in also crossing at the
center and wiring them in place. Arrange the toys among the branches on
each side to get the best placement. Make a large bow with streamers and
wire the bow to the center of the swag and arrange the streamers among
the branches on either side. Wire the toys in place. Using the covered
wire or chenille stem make a hanger on the back at the top midpoint.
Here are answers to two of last issue's Reader Roundup
In response to someone looking
for a knitting jenny:
I saw the instructions for making these out of wood, using
nails for the teeth. Basically, it's a rectangle made out of wood and then
you pound the nails in, evenly spaced on either side. If she looks at the
plastic one that she has, she should be able to figure out what I mean.
You could make these in any size, even big enough to do an afghan! And
it would be alot sturdier than the plastic one - I know, as my daughter
has one and it broke pretty quickly. Hope this helps! Susie
Some of our readers are trying
to roundup the answers to the following questions:
- Could anyone please tell me how to convert an old washer/mangle
into a printing press. I know it can be done, as I've seen a converted
one working very well some time ago.
My mangle has wooden rollers and its metal end supports
are themselves supported by wooden struts bolted onto the metal supports.
This means that the mangle can have any length rollers fitted (simply by
lengthening the wooden struts) to ensure a large print width.
Could you please tell me how I can fit a print platform
on which to lay the etched piece and stock during actual printing?
Do I need to change the rollers for metal ones.... or
are wooden rollers adequate? I hope to do etchings as well as collographic
Any help would be most appreciated. Best wishes, John
- ......I have a question for anyone out there in cyber
space, does anyone know of a place or dealer where I might find already
made shadow boxes, that way I could have a more fun deciding what to put
in them. I need them to be the size of standard frames 5x7 or 8x10. If
you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
It has been great being able to just come to my computer and know that
there is a whole world of crafters like me right at my finger tips. Hope
to hear from you!! Debbie (email@example.com)
- Help! I would like to know where to find woodworking
patterns and ideas for making the large (maybe 3-4' tall) outdoor standing
decorations appropriate for displaying on a porch, steps, etc. Generally

- I would like to know if anyone knows where I can take
a class in porcelain doll lace draping in the Los Angeles, San Fernando
Valley, Ventura County or Orange County areas? Loie (email@example.com)
- A few years ago I received a small crocheted angel that
you hang on a Christmas tree. A friend has offered to make me others but
we are unable to find any patterns. I would appreciate any instructions
on how to crochet these ornaments. They stand about 3 inches tall. Thanks
for your help on this. Angela (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- I am trying to find boxes to sell a line of greeting
cards. I would appreciate any help you can give me. Having a terrible time
tracking these down. Thanks! Joan (Japee@cchat.com)

Here is a quick and easy Christmas gift Craft I thought others
Take a reg. size wire whisk, and poke candy kisses into
it until its full. Then cover the outside with iridescent cellophane. Tie
with a ribbon, and add a small gift tag that says, " We WHISK you
