Up first we have Christmas finger puppets.

A great idea for gifts for mom, aunts, or grandmas is a Bird's Nest Necklace. I got the beads, wire, and necklace chains from Oriental Trading. Click the links to find what to buy.

For younger children, a Christmas nativity is a fairly easy ornament that will travel and store very well.
Finding gold pipe cleaner is difficult, but makes this project worth it. I got mine at Amazon.
We also had the skiing pinecone snowman from pinterest, which was very easy for young children to make. It didn't hold the interest of older kids because there aren't too many things to do to it, before you are done.

One of my favorite crafts was an Ornament Wreath, which is pretty popular right now. The great thing about it is that ANYONE at ANY AGE can make it. BUT, you need a TON of ornaments.
We also had four other craft stations: Melted Crayon Ornaments, Gingerbread Houses, Fingerprint Reindeer Christmas Cards, Bell Necklaces, and Handpainted Ball Ornaments.

Finally, our church's woodworking group came and gave out wooden ornaments made for the children that came to Advent Workshop.
Have you done any of these crafts? What are your favorite homemade gifts?
