Christmas Crafts

The annual Lacombe Christmas Craft Show is coming so fast for me. I thought I would post pictures of items I've completed as I go. So, here are my first creations. Above, I have made primitive chenille candy cane bundles with rusty bell, old fashioned tag and sprig of greenery and jars of primitive chenille mini candy canes is mason jars with galvanized metal lids. Also shown is the cute gingerbread ornie that I will be making more of once my rusty bells arrive in the mail.

Here I have a sweet ceramic lamb with green wreath and bell around his neck.

This wreath is hard to see. It has bells tied on with homespun fabric, sprays of pip berries and an old fashioned paper tag with a sleigh stamped on it. The tag also says "Sleigh Bells Ring"


  1. Everything looks so good Crystal. Love the candy canes and gingerbread guy. The lamb is adorable and your wreath is so nice. Was the wreath hard to make?

  2. Looking good, Crystal! What time is the Craft Show at?

  3. Hi Chatal
    I guess I should have included that info, huh? It is from 10-4 on Sat. Nov 26th at the LMC in Lacombe. The admission is an item for the food bank. Thank you for your comment. Hope to see you there.

  4. Hi Mom
    Thanks for the kind words. In answer to your question, no, nothing is ever really hard to make, but the wreath was different for me to work on.
