Holiday Projects I want to try: The to do list

I posted a link about using tissue paper and mason jars to create Halloween Jack-o-Lanterns. I loved them. I have been thinking I want to try something similar to that but with a Christmas theme. Maybe a tree with star stickers, Santa, a candy cane, or just some red and green paper. So I looked online to see if anyone else had done something like this. Of coarse I came across a ton of cool crafts. Here are some of my favorites:

Glittery Santa Belly Jar Crafts by Amanda

These Santa jars are just too cute and I love glitter, so I think this is going to be a fun project.  I'm still thinking I want to put lights inside, so I might modify this to use the tissue paper and then add a thick ribbon for the belt with a gold buckle from the craft store.

It is a very advanced project for little ones.  That is why I am thinking of using the tissue paper instead.  It would be much easier.  Still it is super cute!!!!

Easy Santa's Belly Ornament Crafts by Amanda

And these ornaments are just as cute.  They look very easy to make, but again, not for the little ones:(  

Jumbo Craft Stick Snowman Craft by

Isn't this so adorable.  And I'm thinking it shouldn't be too difficult for preschool children.  It would make a great wall hanging, door hanging or ornament for the tree.  And I just bought googly eyes from the dollar store too!

Button Wreath by Factory Direct Crafts

I'm loving these.  I'm thinking that my toddler can do something very similar with pipe cleaners and buttons.  Maybe?  But where does one get a ton of buttons and not pay a lot for them?  They are pretty costly at Joanns.
