More holiday inspiration!  The needle felted tree takes some time, but the rest are 2-3 hour projects.  For the snowman puppet pencil topper, use the the toe of an old sock as the hat rather than knit one by hand, unless of course you want to knit or crochet it.  It turns a pencil into a bit of magic and makes the minutes at school move a little faster.  The spice ball ornament smells fabulous and I hang it in my closet throughout the year.
