A Christmas Craft

I want so badly to be crafty, I really do. I wish that I was creative and could come up with things to make on my own, and have the talent to actually make them, but I just don't possess either of those qualities. I do, however, know how to use a computer and a pair of scissors. So I made this:

Using frames that I already had and some Christmas scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby, I made this cute little decoration! It only took about 5 minutes to make and it only cost me 63 cents! These look good staggered like I have them, but I think they would look better side by side on top of a shelf. Too bad I don't have a shelf to put them on.

So I guess I can be crafty, as long as I stick to things that just cannot be ruined. Next, I'm going to attempt to make one of those ornament wreaths that have been all over the craft blogs this Christmas season. Just as soon as I can get my hands on a wire hanger.....

Those are just too cute, that's what I call a bargain! I feel your pain about being crafty. I like simple, quick crafts that don't require a whole lot of patience or concentration. I like crafts that don't require perfection, either, because I can't cut a straight line for anything! ;) Right now I'm trying to find some directions on how to decoupage a picture to canvas...it's about to drive me mad!

I *too* want to be crafty! I bought a pair of super soft pants from Wal-mart and was determined to make them into a skirt. They're not perfect but they function! I figure if I keep at it I'm bound to gain a some talent...right?!

I am so NOT crafty either!
Those are so cute! You could also do j-o-y in your 3 frames. Thanks for sharing!
