Winter Warm-Up: 10 Wonderfully Wintery Crafts

10 wonderfully wintery crafts from Babble.com

It’s kind of hard to believe that the holidays have already zoomed on by, leaving us behind to brave the cold chill of winter. Here in upstate New York, we’ve gotten several feet of snow over the last two weeks and the air is colder than cold. And it’s snowing. Still. Predictably, when it gets this cold and blustery, I get the itch to nest, which in turn makes me feel particularly crafty. So today I’ve got ten wonderfully wintery crafts that are sure to help keep the cold weather doldrums away!
