So excited to share with y’all this amazing project that I’ve been working on…that’s now available in select Hallmark Stores.
They are these cute, adorable, super-fun maker kits called “Handmade Hallmark” that came from the idea of all of us gathering and crafting together, especially around the holidays. Today, I’m going to share with you the Wooden Ornaments Kids’ Kit. Helping me out with modeling duties are Lucy and her mom, Jen. Lucy was enamored with the whole idea of making her own ornaments for the tree.
First of all, can we talk about this box? SO CUTE! Hallmark artist Amber Goodvin spent an afternoon in July listening to Christmas music and painting the artwork for these boxes. Adorable. And a total keeper. (We won’t tell if you decide to wrap one of your gifts in it after you make your ornaments!)
The kit comes with two wooden ornaments, two wooden photo-frame ornaments, two Crayola markers (red and green), assorted gems & pom-poms, Crayola glue and some baker’s twine to tie it all together. All for $15! Super simple and super fun.
One of my favorite things about the kit is it’s mistake-proof. You can’t mess it up. Your creations are all-original and all-you. So have at it: Color, glue, place, hang, repeat! Lucy had a great time adding her special touches.
And in the end, you have these adorable, fresh, unique ornaments that hang on a tree, or even atop a gift as an extra-special adornment.
I hope you enjoy these kits as much as we do. They are in limited supply, so be sure to ask if the Hallmark store near you is carrying “Handmade Hallmark.” And if not, you can always purchase them at Hallmark.com. We love making. You love making. Let’s make together!
