Crafting and Christmas go together like peas & carrots, peanut butter & jelly, and Heidi Montag & plastic surgery. Before Christmas comes and goes, check out these festive, fun Christmas crafts from around the web. If you’ve got a little extra time on your hands (which I know you all do…) you can make most of these cute crafts with stuff you already have around the house. Merry Christmas!
