Between babysitting an elf and staying 1 step ahead of our Advent Calendar – the month of December has escaped me faster than a kid with sugary contraband. We are quite literally staring down the chimney towards Christmas and I have to admit...this weekend will likely be filled with, "one more thing" and "oh forget making cookies...Cub Foods has plenty."
I would like to share with you all – however – something that has saved the "stocking stuffer" category of my list and it's something you can likely make at home with few supplies. Have a tree in your yard that needs trimming? Then you've got one of the ingredients already.
Wood slices: Any size. Think "bottom of Solo Cup" for the ideal ornament size. Can be bought at Michaels.
Paint: Orange, White, Black
Hookers: The little metal kind with a screw.
String: Strips of fabric/yarn/ribbon to hang the ornament by.
Sharpie: For being clever on the back.
What did the Fox say in 2013? Your guess is as good as mine. If you haven't seen the wildly popular YouTube video...the people on your "Gift List" most likely have and are much cooler than you. If they don't get the joke? Then they will LOVE the adorable fox hanging on their tree for years to come and the joke is between you and I.
Truth: Axel painted everything on these with the exception of the eyes and nose. If a 5-yr-old can do this (and have them for sale in a swanky gallery at that) you can most likely create a bakers dozen in about 30 minutes.
