Hershey Kisses Christmas Tree Gifts

I am a huge lover of cute paper crafts.  A couple of days ago I posted an easy to make paper-strip tree that your students can make and decorate.  Today I am posting a really cute Hershey Kisses Christmas Tree paper craft.  

I get my love of paper crafts from my mom - the official queen of sewing, paper cutting, and crafts.  She found this super cute paper Hershey Christmas Tree pattern from Qbee's Quest website.  If you love paper crafts you will want to subscribe to her blog.  She has a video tutorial on making these cute trees.  They are detailed, but easy to make.  My daughter made 15, with my mom, this afternoon.

Here are some pics of the process:

    
I would love to hear if you like these and think you will make them.  Let me know if you like posts about crafts.  I am always making something and love to share.

DIY Monogrammed and Polka Dot Pumpkins

I just love pumpkins.  After seeing some cute polka dot pumpkins on Pinterest, I decided to make my own.  

I got a Zing cutter this summer and it is great.  It will cut any design you can dream up.  The initial and polka dots are cut out of sticky-back vinyl.  Then I made a bow with wire ribbon and thin wire.  I hot glued the wire that I wrapped around the stem to make it stay.  Wala!  Classy pumpkin decor.

I made one for my classroom, my son's teacher, and a friend (who has the same last initial!).  Each one came out different, but fun.  Here are the results:

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving next week!
