We hope you’ve enjoyed our first full week of Handmade Holidays! We want to be sure you’re checking in on the wonderful Handmade Holidays photo pool, and please do continue to send us your memories, projects and traditions. Every Friday we’ll announce giveaway winners, and we’ll also share a selection of tutorials, products and recipes to help make your home extra-cozy and special for the holiday season. Enjoy!

Make It

spacer Acorn Ornament
Laurie from Old School Acres shares a fun Acorn Ornament Tutorial, perfect for gift toppings and holiday decorating.
spacer Wee House Ornaments
Jennifer from Swallowfield made these ornaments for her family and friends, using some of her own artwork. She shares an easy how-to in her Wee House Ornament Tutorial, so you can make some with the image of your choice for your family and friends. (We think they’d be super-cute with kids’ artwork too.)
spacer Mini Mitten Ornaments
Andrea and Barb from Pink Argyle have a sweet, little Mini Mitten Ornament Pattern for you to knit.
