I’ve had this overwhelming desire to be more festive this year. I feel like getting married and moving into a dinky in no way permanent condo made me a little less into decorating for Christmas. But this year it’s been different.
I fondly remember being in craft classes at the local craft store as a child practically every holiday. Two of my favorite crafts were Christmas ones -the log santa and the clay pot soldiers. I miss my mom’s decorations and her hand beaded tree. I’m starting to realize that now that I’m a grown up it’s time for me to start collecting my own decorations.
I plan on making these guys sometime in the coming weeks. I’ve found some instructions/ tutorial here and here. They aren’t quite like “Pierre”, “Jacque”, and “Little Guy”. Something missing in these instructions were gold confetting star bursts on the sides of their heads and a chin strap.
