Last Minute Christmas Crafting

Where on earth has the past week gone?! I've only just finished my Christmas shopping, not to mention my Christmas crafting.
Here's a little something I made to sit along the bench next to my stick tree. Sweet huh? So easy too! All you need is buttons, calico, a picture frame, an embroidery hoop and thread.
Then there's these little wooden ornaments I made for my friend, Helen.They only cost me $1.00 to make, yet they're so effective and beautiful!

I made a few more felt ornaments, cause I just can't resist them-As presents for our friends, I made these little surprise cans!They're so easy to make and very affordable! You get a can with a ring pull top, cut open the bottom of the can leaving the lid on a touch, pour out the contents of said can, wash out can, put lollies or chocolates in can, hot glue bottom of can closed, cover can with Xmas paper, and attach some ribbon and a tag! Too easy!

I also made this little poinsettia brooch.It's so sweet and looks great on my Xmas shirts!!
