Bee Ornament Exchange 2013: Part 1

Hello hive! Happy holidays! It’s time for the SIXTH annual Bee Ornament Exchange! Every year the blogger bees participate in a secret Santa ornament exchange, where each bee comes up with a handmade or store-bought ornament for $15 or less for the bee whose name they’ve drawn.

Here we have part one of the results, and we’ll be running several more posts in the lead-up to Christmas! Lots of holiday delightfulness coming your way!

to   This paper ornament took days…to arrive after this non-crafting bee ordered it from an Etsy seller. 🙂

to   I couldn’t imagine attempting to craft something myself after I found the perfect ornament to personalize.

to   This cute wood carved coyote came from Etsy.


to I didn’t DIY this one, but it was too perfect to pass up!


to Hand-knit, jointed panda bear with needle-felted and embroidered details, a beaded bamboo stalk, and glass bead eyes.

to   So excited for your family of three! Yay Bunnies!




to   I did not make this adorable ornament. The wonderful Erinn Simon of Etsy shop calliecalliejumpjump did. I hope you like it, Cinnamon Bun! <3


to I am not crafty but thankfully people on Etsy are! Hope you like this one. 🙂

to Hand-cutting the leaves was a bigger pain than I thought it would be, but in the end I love how it turned out! I also nearly kept the bee thimble for myself…

to Thank goodness for Etsy seller ebenotti!

Do you have a favorite so far? Stay tuned to the blog for more ornaments!
