A Very Crafty Christmas

Since moving to Korea every purchase I make, I second guess. I don't want to waste money on random stuff that I won't be able to take with me or ship home when we leave. With this in mind, I just couldn't justify spending money on a fake Christmas tree and loads of decorations. Instead, I vowed to use my crafty skills to spread the Christmas love in our apartment.

Our tree is made out of a cardboard box left over from the teachers we replaced. The star we found in our apartment, the paper chain is made from left over art supplies from school, and we made snowflakes out of white computer paper we had lying around.

I learned how to make paper cranes over the weekend and have made over 50 already! How many do you have to make before you get a wish? Maybe I'll do that... Wishes are fun. :) 

Spencer made us a paper chain to count down the days until Christmas, which is also the days until our winter vacation (woo!). Also, I love the mini snowflakes. They are adorable.

It's been really fun to craft and decorate! I'm feeling very festive. Do you know of any other home made stuff we can make with things we might have lying around??
