handmade holiday

a few years back we started a family tradition of making christmas gifts for family, friends, teachers, etc. i just love the preparations and time spent leading up to christmas creating and wrapping up handmade treasures for christmas...and love that we get to do this together as a family. it's a true family event! here's a little peek at this year's projects...
yarn wrapped wreathes with flowers. the full collection of various sizes and colors never got photographed before being wrapped and delivered.  i wish i could have captured it...they really were quite the wreath family!

the flowers alone made cute pins for teachers and little friends.  ella was quite the diligent elf  in helping to create these little treasures!
brother & sister elf  were also quite diligent in assembling these ice cream sundae kits for all their cousins!  how fun (and yummy) to pack-up little baggies of sprinkles, marshmallows, chocolate chips, nuts and containers of chocolate syrup. a simple and tasty present that was fun to prepare, gift and open!

another handmade holiday from the defoyd family...and already brainstorming for next year!
