DIY Christmas Gift for Kids to Make!

(Thank you to Oriental Trading Company for providing product used in this post!)

Do you feel the excitement in the air? School is almost out for Christmas break! Soon they will be home. Wide-eyed. Counting down the days, the hours, the minutes... until Christmas morning! 

So today I thought I'd share a sweet and simple idea to keep the little ones in your home busy distracted creative. :) These affordable wood Christmas tree ornaments come in sets of 12, and are perfect for children to paint and decorate. 

They can personalize the ornaments with their picture to give to Grandma and Grandpa, Aunts and Uncles. Or, have them use a picture of them with their friends to pass out as gifts! (The photo ornaments on our tree are the ones I cherish most.)

Farmhouse Christmas Table Settings and Favors...

I hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas season and not feeling too overwhelmed. I'm trying to take one day at a time and not get too far ahead of myself. (Ask me how I'm doing with that tomorrow! ;) 

Today, I thought I'd round up some table settings and favor ideas that we've used here these past few years. They are all fairly simple, and incorporate nature as well as a vintage feel...

Sundays at Home {Link Party}

I hope you are enjoying this December weekend! Our family headed up to the mountains today in search of snow. We not only found snow, but some incredible ice caves! I don't think we'll ever forget the amazing scenery and adventure the day turned into. (Nor do I think my tailbone will soon forget the fall I took on ice on our way back down the trail. ;)

So happy you've joined us today for Sundays at Home. We hope you find just the inspiration you are looking for. And for those who share your posts with us, thank you!

Our Farmhouse Christmas Entryway {2017}

I hope you are enjoying this early Christmas season. There's nothing quite like the anticipation, hope and wonder of Christmas! You see it in children's eyes and twinkling lights, you feel it in the hustle and bustle of shoppers, parties and performances, while happy Christmas music plays. (I prefer Frank and Ella, and anything from that era. How about you?)
