Woodland Christmas

Woodland Christmas
This year the kids and I decided that we wanted to do a Woodland Christmas theme.
Drama Queen and I were busy crafting on Friday making these very large ornaments on embroidery hoops. 
I picked up an arm full of them a few weeks back at Goodwill.
The largest ones are 16 inches.
Prices ranged from 99 cents to 49 cents.
We used material that I already had plus we picked up a red plaid and red polka dot material at Joann's last week.

These will be great to set in the tree.
We will be painting mushrooms in the next few weeks out of little wood candlesticks and terracotta saucers. 
Plus we are going to be recycling a large science cardboard poster that Drama Queen used last year for a school project. 
 We plan on making big mushrooms and other wild life out of the cardboard and painting them for ornaments.
Still debating if I want to make a new set of stockings this year. 
Might go with a very simple design.
Plus a new tree skirt to match. 
It's going to be a very crafty Christmas.
