Window Stars & Himmeli :: Homemade Christmas Ornaments

We spent yesterday afternoon at our friends' house crafting! It was fun and I love the handmade decorations Carol picked for us to make. 

We made basic Waldorf-style window stars with kite paper. We followed this tutorial:

There are different types of stars at the same site here. They are all very pretty and look great in the window as decorations. 

We also made Finnish Himmeli ornaments. We used paper straws and string. We added mini bells for fun. We followed this tutorial, with video:

We finished our afternoon with the kids playing a board games and a bit of video games, while Carol and I started a Christmas puzzle and drank delicious Sleigh Ride tea from David's Tea. A perfect afternoon, thank you Carol ♥.
