My grandfather made up this song a long time ago called “Make Yourself a Christmas Doodad” and every once in a while my Dad will sing it too. I have no idea what inspired the song, or why it has persisted in our memories all these years, but I sang “Make Yourself a Christmas Doodad” while I made these….Christmas Doodads. (For those of you unfamiliar with the word “doodad” dictionary.com defines it as “a decorative embellishment.”
What crafty Christmas would be complete without making a few ornaments? I had lots of fun making ornaments this year. I think my favorite ones might be the teacup ornaments, and those were by far the easiest to make! I bought a Kid’s tea set and glued the tiny cups to the tiny saucers. Add a ribbon and voila! Super cute, super easy. I’m also partial to the bird. And the tree. And the flower. Okay, I like them all.
Merry Christmas, and I hope you have fun making yourself some Christmas doodads.
