2- Glass Jar Snow Scene
When looking for Christmas crafts you can do as a family or group that allow for individuality, this is a top choice. Make Life Lovely has given us some great steps to make these.

When you cut the old pajamas up into smaller squares, you can easily sew up your very own Christmas memory quilt. Best of all, you can make it extra thoughtful by saving your child’s PJs over the years to make them a special quilt sure to bring back all the magical holiday memories of the past.
