I scoured Pinterest for some ideas and sure enough there were a ton of fabulous ones. I decided to go with these awesome Christmas tree cones. The site has a great template which made it really easy to cut out. I mean, I love to craft, but I love easy crafts even more and if someone has already made a template who am I to reinvent the wheel. I filled each one with little notes on silly things to do to get us in the holiday spirit like watch a christmas movie, drive around to see lights, drink hot cocoa, etc. I didn't fill them up with any tiny stuff this year only because my little one is too little yet to enjoy such choking hazards, but you could certainly filled them with stuff because their is plenty of room.
As you can see I am not done with them just yet, I do want to add some more decorations to them and I was up til 1 am last night cutting for what seemed like forever, but I would say that it was rather relaxing since it was mindless cutting, you know.
I am also going to enjoy making an scrapbooking album dedicated solely to December much like the one Ali Edwards is doing but for a fraction of the cost, love her, but not the pricey stuff. I just can't afford it. Do you think I will be able to get anything done with this messy desk?!
