12 Months of Christmas:  March | Higdons' Happy Home

I'm so excited about the category my church picked for this month's Operation Christmas Child:  Wearables!  This category is great for DIYers to show off their more creative side.  It's also a good chance to get your kids involved in creating things for other children.  I was inspired by the woman in the video below, so my daughter and I went to the store and bought a couple packages of pony beads.  She's still kind of little for making necklaces and bracelets, but she loves playing with the colorful beads and has tested all of my creations for durability.  She's even modeled a few!

 

Here are some ideas for wearable OCC gifts:

  • Flip Flops
  • Sunglasses
  • Apron
  • Scarf
  • Wristwatch
  • T-Shrit
  • Purse
  • Cip-On-Earrings
  • Ball Caps
  • Fun Socks
  • Colorful Plastic Bead Necklaces
  • Foldable Sunhat
  • Pillowcase Dress
  • Friendship Bracelets (and extra string to make more)
  • Ballet Slippers
  • Tiara
