It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s time to trip up the tree with Christmas stuff…like bingle balls and woofoo fluff! I remember the weeks leading up to Christmas break when I was in school were always so much fun. We’d watch Christmas movies at the end of the day while we munched on sugary Christmas-themed snacks and worked on our Christmas list to give to Santa.
Times were SO much simpler back then weren’t they? Seeing all of these delicious edible Christmas crafts takes me right back to those days, though. Maybe that’s why I love them so much!
