Here’s a cute little Christmas craft idea

Hat tip to Martha!

Sarah and I made bunch of beaded hair pins based on an idea in a recent holiday craft issue. Sarah also designed her own packaging.

Pretty sweet huh? I’m totally chuffed.

This was a very easy craft to do with kids, and I would totally recommend it for the 7+ age group. Instructions are here.

 I hope to post more craft ideas in the weeks to come. (DIY Christmas is the way to go!)
