When I think of Christmas decorations or crafts, stars naturally come to mind. This basic shape can be created over and over to accommodate so many different design styles, uses and moods. Today I have gathered several ideas for the Christmas star (of course you can use them for whatever holiday or daily idea you have in mind) to hopefully get your creative self going. If you would like to add your own favorite star to the list, please post in the comments so that all can see. Merry Christmas and may a “star be born.”
Even with a kit in hand, many of you can attest that building a gingerbread house can be a frustrating and tear evoking task, especially when the kids are eagerly waiting to adorn it with editable windows and sugar-covered roofs. Through the years (and trial and error) I came up with a tear-free solution to building our beautiful brown baked houses, and it all comes down to planning.
