I can not count how many times I have been in a craft store with my daughter the knitter. I am not a knitter so I browse the store while she contemplates on colors and types of yarn she needs. The funny thing about craft stores are that the holiday craft material are on the shelves way before the holiday. If you are a crafty person you know that you have to get your supplies and start making your crafts way ahead of the holiday.
This time of year is a good time to think about crafts you can make for next Christmas because you’ll find them on deep discount in most major stores and even some local craft stores. So stock up!
check out ebay for craft supplies at bargain prices!
I did not make these ornaments, but they look like something I could make! I found these cute handmade ornaments at a local craft store. guess what? These are made out of used light bulbs! I bought a few of these at Halloween and then found these holiday bulbs right before Christmas.
