Mindy is with us today to share a festive traditional holiday card featuring Magic Iris Holly Wreath Add-On! You can watch the video tutorial below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for watching!

The cute little mice of Christmas Before ‘n Afters look so sweet framed by the Magic Iris Holly Wreath Add-On! Mindy created a fun and festive traditional holiday design with lots of green and pops of red!

Melissa combined the snow globe from Little Snow Globe: Dog with messages from Little Snow Globe Add-On to make this beautiful grid design! I love the unexpected colors and pretty background with all the splatters! The sentiment is from Little Snow Globe: Bear.

Grace‘s clever Platform Pop-Up is a fun way to count down the days until Christmas! Yay! She used Shiver 12 x 12 paper from the Let it Shine Snowflakes collection to create the base of the platform. And she also used Let it Shine Red Sprinkle ‘n Shine paper for the scalloped circle frame and sentiment banner. Grace created an Outside In Stitched Circle in Black Licorice cardstock which she covered with another circle of acetate to write on with a white chalk marker. She stamped “days until” in Milo’s ABCs to white emboss and pair with “Christmas” from Scribbled Sentiments: Winter.

Once the base of the card was assembled, Grace got to work decorating it with lots of sweet holiday die cut images! To make the gingerbread house, she cut the top of a Build-A-House in kraft cardstock. Then she added the details from Build-A-House Gingerbread Add-On. And to keep the gingerbread theme going, she also included one of the cute Gingerbread Friends!

And then Grace added fun little details! The peppermint candies are from How You Bean Mint Add-On, the candy canes and gumdrops are in the Build-A-House Gingerbread Add-On set and the cute little snow globe is from Reveal Wheel Little Snow Globe: Dog Add-On.

And then the final decorative detail is the Holly Leaves Border! This is so amazing, Grace!

Chari created a very special set of Build-A-Snowman tags to inspire you! She cut the tags from Favorite Flannel papers adding holographic Mini Snowflakes! Then she assembled the snow men with Texture Dot red scarves! So cute!

I love how she stenciled Winter Sprigs on the snowmen! It adds so much interest to her clever design!

Caly must have been thinking of holiday baking when she designed this charming card! She combine Baked with Love with A Creature Was Stirring to create an adorable Scalloped Slimline scene!

Catherine created an amazing holiday light up decoration featuring Build-A-Birdhouse! She made the birdhouses 3D by sandwiching a width of cardstock between two of the birdhouse die cuts. She also used Build-A-Birdhouse Christmas Add-On and another bird from Build-A-Snowman.

Catherine used Quinn’s ABCs Lawn Cuts to spell out “peace” and then she added cotton “snow” on the rooftops. She strung the birdhouses together with craft string lights!

The final result is so beautiful! I can picture this amazing decoration on a fireplace mantel!

  1. Wow!! Those are all amazing Christmas projects!! <3
    I can't wait to get out all the homemade decorations my daughter has made at nursery/preschool!

  2. When I was little my mom took ceramics class and made a christmas tree that you have to put the multi-colored lights into. My brother and I always loved putting it together with the lights and my kids and niece and nephew love it too.

  3. My mother mafe me a stuffed felt ornament that is a mouse in a wreath. I hang it on the tree every year. She passed in 2018, so it is very specialbto me.

  4. I made a fabric Advent calendar wall hanging that my children always loved. It has a big holiday scene and 25 little pockets with Christmas images that match the scene. The kids attached the little images with Velcro to the big scene each day. I have made several other advent calendars too. They are so fun! I love Grace’s platform pop-up!

  5. My favourite handmade ornament is a glass ball with a photo of my dog that passed 5 years ago. I put the ornament in a prominent place on the tree so that I can see it everytime I look at the tree.

  6. The year I learned to knit everyone got a small knitted ornament. When I learned how to sculpt small clay figures, everyone got one of those. I can see my craft hobby history on my tree every year! 😁

  7. I love all of my handmade ornaments from the kids. I also cross-stitched a cute snowman tapestry that i love to get out this time of year.

  8. I don’t know if I ever made or had any handmade ornaments… I would love to start making some… might not this year, but it’s definitely a possibility for next year. Growing up I remember we had wooden ornaments for the Christmas tree – I assume they would have been handmade and not like the mass produced plastic ones these days. I think mum and dad still have them somewhere… I’ve asked them NOT to throw them out as I would like to have them one day when I actually have space to put up a tree. I know some of them are broken, but I think they could be fixed fairly easily.

  9. My favourite homemade decoration is a wooden piece that I painted years ago. It features a trio of snowmen (I love snowmen!) riding a bike, that has big snowflakes as wheels. It’s adorable!

  10. My favorite handmade holiday decoration is a Christmas tree made out of coat hangers, lights and tinsel with a little star on top!

  11. I have a three panel chipboard display (spelling JOY) that I made years ago. It was my first time using pink with Christmas paper crafting and I haven’t stopped. 😄

  12. It was a handmade wreath I got from my Auntie. I’ve had it for about 10 years and it’s something I will keep forever and use every Christmas.

  13. My favorite holiday crafts are the stockings my mom made for me and my children… and then I was able to continue the tradition by making one for my daughter in law and granddaughters. I also can’t wait to work on and finish my Christmas banner with my Lawn Fawn supplies.

  14. My favorite handmade ornament is the Santa cam. Everyone loved them that received one! My kid really thinks it’s magical and turns on December 1st to watch how good she is for all of December.

  15. I found this adorable gnome at a craft fair, with a hat made out of an old sweater sleeve, and I love it. It makes me laugh when I see it.

  16. My favourite handmade Christmas decoration was a Christmas urn that I got to take at our home hardware. I won a free class to make it!

  17. When I was a kid growing up, I helped my mom make sugar bells to hand on the tree….. We used a sugar/egg white mixture and pressed it into plastic bell molds. After letting them dry a bit, you scoop out the extra sugar mixture leaving a sugar shell. We were so poor in those days, it was fun to make our own tree decorations! We made these several times, using food coloring to change up the color or adding glitter for extra sparkle! It’s a fun childhood memory.

  18. The projects this week have been phenomenal. My favorite handmade decorations are of course all the sweet little ornaments my children and now my grandchildren have made over the years.

  19. Wonderful projects!
    I have a set of handmade angels that one of my aunts made many years ago. They are made of pipe cleaners, ribbon and crepe paper, and they are adorable. They were given to my Mom to hang on our tree when I was really young. I always admired them and my Mom gave them to me many years ago.

  20. The ornaments made by my girls that show their pictures at the age they made them. I still put them on my Christmas tree.

  21. Two of my favorite handmade holiday decorations are a crocheted Santa boot my Mom made and a plastic canvas Christmas train set that I made.

  22. My favorite handmade decoration that I’ve made is a waterless snow globe. I made several to decorate a Christmas dinner table one year. Each person got to keep the snow globe at their place setting as a gift. My favorite handmade decorations that someone else made are the ornaments my mom has made for me over the years, some crocheted, some sewn and several that she has painted. They bring back happy memories when I put them on the tree each year.

  23. We were gifted this really unique puffy fabric tree when we first moved to Texas, and it is a treasured gift that graces the door every year. If I don’t have it out, the kids ask about it-and they’re adults now!

  24. My grandmother handmade some ornaments and they are stunning – I love putting them on the christmas tree each year!

  25. I am in love with the build a snow globe and plan to add it in some of our decorations. My favorite decorations are the ornaments on our Christmas tree.

  26. My mother made my grandmother a ceramic nativity. When Gramma was diagnosed with incurable cancer, she gifted me the nativity set (and a Santa Claus music box) during her last Christmas. Those two items are my most prized Christmas decorations. The nativity set is about 60 years old.

  27. Mine is actually a Ball jar snow globe that a coworker made me ages ago. It’s a very prized possession and must be shown off each Christmas.

  28. I’m not very good at making decorations anymore, but it always warms my heart when mum brings out the decorations I made as a child. ❤️

  29. My favourite handmade decorations are all the ornaments my daughter made me as a child. Each one has such special memories attached.

  30. My parents, myself and each of my siblings have handmade ornaments that my great grandmother made by covering foam balls with ribbon, velvet, fancy shaped sequins and beaded pins. They are beautiful heirlooms.

  31. I think my favorite is the one that has a photo of my newborn baby girl on it. It’s the most meaningful one. But then there are the ones that represent Jesus’ birth…

  32. My mom made me a Joy decoration for my wall with two giant red glittered wooden letters for the J and Y, and a decorated wreath for the O. It is still one of my favorite decorations.

  33. My husband, daughter, myself and our two mini dachshunds all have counted cross-stitch stockings that I made. Each is personalized to the owner. My daughter’s is an ice-skating theme.

  34. I have handmade Christmas bobbles for my tree, the kind that you put acrilic paint inside the slosh it about. They are fun to make.

  35. Years ago an aunt taught me how to make Ojos de Dios. I made a boatload of them at the time and we think of her every year we bring them out for the tree, even though she passed long ago.

  36. I have a wreath one of my sons made in kindergarten out of rice, green paint and glue. It must weigh 1 pound or more. Every year I hang it on the tree it brings the biggest smile to my face 🙂

  37. My favorite handmade decoration is a Christmas tree ornament, I have made a variety of hand made ornaments some from paper, some from felt, mostly using Christmas themed kits I have purchased from different paper crafting companies!

  38. Many years ago I made projects at a local ceramics shop. The favorite piece I made is a vintage Santa, sitting in a plush chair, stitching a button on a bear. The figure was automated and Santa’s head would move. Even though my boys are all grown up, we still hang the cross-stitch stockings I made for them when they were born. I am a quilter too and have a number of quilted ornaments from friends that adorn our tree. My favorite handmade decorations though are the ornaments my boys made in pre-school. Those still go on the tree too! Todays projects from the design team, especially Catherine’s PEACE birdhouses, are just stunning.

  39. Grace’s creation is phenomenal. everyone’s creations really are. It’s been a fun inspiration week. I don’t want it to stop. My favorite handmade items are ornaments that my daughter used to make it school.

  40. My great aunt always had this Ceramic Santa Sleigh and Reindeer that she made on the dining table when we went there for our family Christmas party. My mom inherited it and every year we put it out, it reminded me of her and all my relatives that went to the party. Unfortunately, it fell off our mantle one year and most of it broke.

  41. I make gingerbread wisemen placed in a cellophane bag with the label Wise Men Still Seek Him. Then I clothespin them to a tree outside for visitors to take… squirrels included sometimes

  42. I have kept all the little ornaments both our boys made throughout their preschool and elementary years. They get hung up on a snowman wall decoration every year.

  43. Years ago, a friend made me a quilled dove. It’s still a favorite and gets a special place on the tree every year.

  44. A friend gave me gold painted pinecones with red ribbons. They are simple but beautiful and I love hanging them on the tree.

  45. These projects are all so festive and creative!! LOVE the Fawny Holiday week projects, and thanks for the chance to win. How fun!

    re a favorite handmade holiday decoration, I made Christmas stockings for myself and a bunch of other people, and the one I kept was my favorite for a long time until I got bored with it and sold it on eBay years ago. I also enjoy crocheting ornaments, but I don’t usually keep them around; I give them away or sell them as fast as I make them.

  46. I taught myself how to make two “blown egg” ornaments when I was 11 for a fifth grade project. Both my parents worked long hours, seven days a week and couldn’t help me. I knew other students were getting parental guidance and our grades were heavily dependent on the final outcome. It was quite delicate work and to say I was resentful/angry that I really was doing it all by myself would be the understatement. Finding things small enough to fit inside your standard food market chicken egg took longer than actually hollowing out an egg with only pinprick openings at either end! The end results were painted scenes consisting of flocked teddy bear fridge magnets with a tiny goose sitting within intact egg shells. VERY kitschy by adult standards: not something my mom would usually keep and I expected to see in the trash… A decade later, I found them safely tucked away in a very special box. My mom told me that my father was the one who insisted on keeping them. When they saw what I was capable of on a $3 budget and left to my own devices, they were heartbroken and proud. They saw that their little girl no longer needed them… but is that ever really true? They became a symbol of the American Dream: cobbled together by what you have, find and what endures.

  47. My favorite handmade ornaments are ones made by my kids, or I probably should say – their teachers (!) when my kids were in preschool…there’s a pasta noodle Xmas tree, there’s a felt “cookie” ornament, and one that’s a plastic cup that has a snowman and little tree inside like a snowglobe. I’ve reglued these ornaments a few times already – my kids are in their 20’s after all – but I still love looking at them and remembering when my kids were young!

  48. When I designed my home, I have a family room with a gray stone corner fireplace that opens.
    into breakfast – kitchen with whitewashed cabinets. I decided to decorate in pink/iridescent
    & custom designed everything that matches inside & outside my home from – multiple wreaths,
    swags, trees, stocking, tree skirts, Santa Claus Mouse & Mrs. Clause Mouse & so much more.
    My favorite Christmas display arrangement I created was a porcelain Santa Claus in pink velvet.
    Santa suite holding a sac full of toys sitting in sleigh with pink poinsettias, berries, snowflakes &
    twinkling lights attached to reindeers! 🎄🎅🦌💗🐭

  49. I always found myself not having enough time to handmake any holiday decor since I spending most of the time making gift bags and cards for family and friends. If possible, I would like to make a photo frame with cute LF images and critters for the holiday 💕

  50. My favorite handmade Christmas time project is a 12″x17″ tiny count extreme detailed cross-stitch design of poinsettia flowers. Finally had it professionally framed after 20 years old to help conserve it for many more Christmases

  51. My sister sewed a kid friendly Nativity set for our family. I have now passed it in to my grandkids. It is one of my favorite Christmas decorations.

  52. I really haven’t made many handmade ornaments so I’ll say the many ornaments my kids made when they were little!

  53. My husband and I made oranments one year for our kids. My boys had bonfires in high school all the time. So we took beer cans, made a bonfire on it with glitter, and wrote on the year. They still have them on their tree!

  54. My favorite is a ceramic lighted nativity scene that my mom painted when I was a little girl. I display it in a place of honor every year.

  55. My favorite holiday decoration is one I made for each of my family members many years ago. I made several plastic canvas 3-D gingerbread houses. I love seeing them displayed when I visit my family members’ homes during the holiday season.

  56. Many years ago, I cross-stitched a small scene and made it into an ornament and gave it to my niece. Last year her kids were decorating the tree and found that ornament. It made my heart happy that my niece kept it for all these years.

  57. My mother made me porcelain grandma and
    grandpa dolls many years ago. they
    sit on a bench made by my husband. I
    made their outfits. for each holiday there
    are different additions to match the holidays.
    It was a labor of love for all of us. thanks
    for sharing some great projects

  58. My sister visited me and we picked out beads at a bead store and made sets of wire stars we both still add to our tree 15+ years later.

  59. When I was a child my mother’s friend created beautiful sequined ornaments. My sisters and I treasure every one we still have after 50 years.

  60. My favorite holiday decoration was an origami Christmas tree I made for my husband and me. A friend visiting spied it, liked it, and asked for it. So, though it hadn’t been up for a day or two, I gave it to her and her husband. Now that they have two little ones, I’m sure it’s just a distant memory, but it was a nice tree, and the perfect gift.

  61. My daughter and I dried orange slices and strung them with cranberries for a beautiful garland for her tree. I love how it turned out. She has used it for 3 years so far!

  62. My favorite handmade holiday decorations are the 2 baby-size Christmas stockings that I made for our kids when they were babies for their first Christmas. One stocking is crewel embroidery and the other is counted cross stitch.

  63. So much cuteness! So many great project ideas!
    My favorite handmade Holiday project is an advent calendar I made with one of my crafty groups. Every year I fill it with affirmations and some scattered pieces of candy.

  64. I have a picture frame that I made a snowy scene with Santa’s sleigh and reindeer out of die cuts, stamps and paper. It is one of my favorite things! It is pretty big too!

  65. A good friend made me a round, beautiful see-through tree ornament that is filled with strips of book pages. A perfect ornament for a reader/book lover.

  66. My favorite homemade holiday decoration is the ceramic Christmas tree that lights up that my mom made so many years ago. I have fond memories of sitting beside it and admiring all the pretty lights. I know have it in my home and those memories come back every year when I set it on my own home and light it up!

  67. My favorite handmade holiday decorations were the ornaments our children made for us.
    I love the countdown platform popup and the light up birdhouses. Beautiful!

  68. This would have to be a wreath with actual gingerbread men that I baked and decorated. Every year the glue has dried out and every year I glue the gingerbread men back on and hang it.

  69. My neighbour introduced me to ceramics, and gave me some to paint and giveaway. My favourite was a sparkly pink snowflake.

  70. Homemade wreaths and tree decorations are the best! I still have ones that are 30-years-old from kids we’ve watched grow.

  71. I always love the glass ornaments I made using a stamped and colored image that goes inside the ornament! Thanks for sharing! 🌲❄️

  72. When I was little I remember my mom making a nativity set that I loved. When she passed away I was able to receive it. I also have one that my mother-in-law made and I proudly display them every year! It’s a great way to remember our two moms.

  73. I made ornaments with alcohol ink on the inside and I personalized the outside with vinyl. It had the recipient’s name and an image on the outside.

  74. I love all these adorable cards! So clever! I have made so many handmade Christmas ornaments I don’t know which one would be my favorite but I think the ones that are most precious are the ones we had on our tree when I was little and of course anything my daughter made me.

  75. I still have plastic canvas ornaments my late Oma made that I hang in my tree each year! Love sentimental o Ed the most!

  76. We baked some ornaments and shaped them from a few different cutters. It was fun to spend time painting and decorating them. I was looking forward to eating them when opening gifts, only to discover they were not edible.

  77. I have a few older ornaments from family that has passed on. I love to see them on the tree and think of them during this time.

  78. My mom and I have made a few fun things together! Gnomes, wreaths, and other stuff and I cherish every moment I get to spend crafting with her!

  79. My husband’s aunt made a felt advent calendar that we’ve been using since the late 1990s. My (adult) children still fight over which ornaments they get to put on!

  80. A favorite handmade holiday decoration is going to be all the ones my children made when they were little. I used to put them on our tree but a few yrs ago opted to just looking & reminiscing but leaving in their special container to be on the safe side. They’re irreplaceable so better off staying put 🥰.

  81. My favorite handmade holiday decorations are the ones my kids make! Whether it is paper chains, snowflakes, or paintings. Those are thenones i cherish most

  82. This is a hard question to answer because I have so many favorites. I have the kids’ handprint turkeys, handmade and decorated frames and lamps. But one of my favorite and lovingly received is the Toy Story tree. My daughter was soooooo obsessed with that movie when it came out. She would get up in the morning (wearing a Jessie nightgown complete with a Jessie cowgirl hat) and play the DVD pretty much all her waking day. It had to be playing in the background and we would work. Anyway, I made her 26 Toy Story ornaments and a Toy Story themed tree to hang them on. She’s older now, but still has the ornaments throughout her room.

  83. I love to make one ornament every year with a significant moment/memory. My favourite is whenfilled a bauble with flowers from my wedding bouquet!

  84. My favorite handmade Christmas decorations are those from my 3 grandchildren. Baby footprints from newest grandson, birdhouse from grand daughter and gingerbread house from oldest grandson. 🥰♥️🥰
