Christmas: 101 Wondrous Ideas

I haven't reviewed a craft book yet, so I thought this one was a good choice.  During these more economical times, these handmade gifts are easy on the pocketbook without scrimping on quality and charm.  Published by Better Homes and Gardens Christmas: 101 Wondrous Ideas features many different and interesting crafts and projects for the holiday season.  The crafts are simple and elegant.  Most are not too intimidating, even for the most amateur crafter. 

Separated into five sections, each one gives you many ideas to make your home the envy of your friends.  From simple gifts, trimming the tree, baking, and even candle making, you'll find something to make for each one on your Christmas list. 

There are simple projects such as the milk carton candle to more elaborate ones such as making a wreath out of spearamint candies.  You can even get the kids involved personalizing ornaments with paint pens or folding star cornicopias. 

Check out your library and take home this great little craft book.  It's never to early to start thinking about gifts for your family and friends.  Now you can give them something extra special: something homemade.
