Crafting with Traditional Holiday Colors

Crafting with Traditional Holiday Colors

Traditional Colors

There is nothing like climbing in the attic and rummaging for the Christmas decorations on a cold winter day. As you start to trim your tree with ornaments of old the memories start to flood back. Each ornament you pick up has a special memory, a smell, a thought that races through your mind. This is what Christmas is about. Thinking back to good times and good memories with friends and family. And while that macaroni ornament or pipe cleaner candy cane that you made in the 5th grade may be small and simple to someone else, it holds a special meaning to you. 

Which is why today we are all about the traditional Christmas theme. We've created a plethora of projects using the classic colors of red and green to make your holidays special this year. Create new traditions this year with these ideas! Give your family something they can enjoy decorating or using with any of these traditional color-themed projects.
