Fun Ideas For Making Your Season Decorations

The Holidays are quickly approaching and I have been busy creating some fun new paper craft decorations!  We already have so many supplies to create home decorations with, it seems still to buy certin decorations. 

First up is an Advent Banner!  

This was really fun to make!  I love to have an advent calendar for my son and we have done a few different things but I think this is my favorite.  I had these little paper bags left over from my Christmas Card project and I use some wonderful new dies to create the lovely circles for the bags. I put binder clips on the banner to easily get the bags on and off so that I can reuse this.  I cant wait to fill this with a few mini lego people, arcade tokens and candy for my son! 

 Holiday Birdhouses
I have had this bare wooden birdhouses for a while now and I new I wanted to decorate them for the Holidays and this Prima line was just right!   I painted the small edges first and then decorated the sides and roof with the paper.  It was fun to accent them with the garland, flower and blue gems that came in the kit.  This will be a great addition to my Holiday decorations. 

Changeable Framed Sign
I purchased this frame at Wal-mart for $8 and made these three inserts for it just using my Circut, paper and glue!!

 This one will be displayed during the non-holiday seasons.  I used the Sans Serif Font Cricut Cartridge to create this saying.
 This one will be for Christmas time! The paper already had this lovely tree on it and I new I wanted to use it as a display piece for the holidays so I added the Merry Christmas using the Story Book Font Cricut Cartridge.
This one is currently on display!  I used the Plattin School Book Font Cricut Cartridge  and the Gypsy Wanderings for the pumpkin.  
I hope this post will inspire you to create your own Holiday decorations!
