Cheap way to add festive touches to the holiday season..

Okay, so I pretty much have designed most of Madeline's headbands with decorative flower pins which are easy as pie to make for any old person with a glue gun. Don't know why it popped into my head, but after I put on Maddie's black dress to look festive for the Christmas Merry-Go-Round in our town, It seemed like the outfit just wouldn't be right without a poinsetta. Of course, my creative juices bubbled at the thought of it and 5 minutes later with a white head band, an aligator clip and a clipping from one of my artificial poinsetta plants, Houston, we were ready for liftoff. Of course, Maddie could practically soar above the high seas with this huge flower over her head, but I personally think the bigger, the cuter.

We are at the stage where she likes to pull any foreign object off of her body-including socks, headbands, pacifier clips and the list goes on..but after distracting her with Christmas songs, all seemed to go well. A few fun pics later, we had another unique memory to add to our Caldwell Christmas. I would recommend spicing up any headband with a cute present bow also if you aren't into spending the extra effort to go buy a poinsetta- they are just as cute! I think I will be doing this for her birthday next week as well- it will be simple and cute!





Merry Christmas, all! I will be posting my Scotcharoos tomorrow that I got from Jess at Mad In Crafts.  You can go to her blog by clicking her button under the "Blogs I Love to Visit" section.They look tasty and I couldn't resist!
