Some of my favorite Christmas ornaments are the handmade items from my childhood. So, for this weeks “Dare To” challenge, I wanted to make holiday decor that I could share with friends and family this holiday season.
I searched the internet up and down until I found a craft that wouldn’t look like something my 5-year old niece made. Don’t get me wrong, I love my niece, and her kindergarten art skills are great, but, I wanted a sophisticated craft I felt like others would appreciate. And I found this:
I set up a little assembly line and mass-produced these little Christmas light Rudolphs.
And I ended up with a whole army of them to share.
Best of all, these were inexpensive. I found lights for 15 cents apiece at my local hardware store. And spend about 99 cents each on pipe cleaners, ribbon, bells, noses, and eyes. I hope I have a few left over to add to my own tree. 🙂

PS. I’ll admit, my VERY favorite ornament isn’t homemade, but how can you beat this?
