Rustic Christmas Craft Projects

Cinnamon Applesauce Hearts, read full instructions.

Hello! It’s me…the absentee blogger. I’m really hoping to start blogging again. We’ll see how well I do on my intentions with an almost 3-week old baby at home and me going back to work in just a few weeks. I’ll try my best even if I write shorter posts and please ignore the grammar errors and typos…

I thought I would start things off with a round-up of some of my favorite holiday crafts I’ve featured over the past few years. Simple rustic decorations and handmade gifts hold a special place in my heart. Partly because I adore the tradition of making things. I forever remember the moments creating my cinnamon hearts to hang on my christmas tree or knitting a scarf for a special friend. The thought and time that goes into handmade objects is truly special.

    On the applesauce hearts – is there any functional reason for the heart choice or was that just a preference?



  2. I made your seed-stitch neckwarmer over the weekend and love it!! I’m so proud. Will make another one this weekend for my sister’s Christmas gift. I used Mirasol Ushya yarn and the leather buttons. It’s so soft and cozy!
