|Clothespin Christmas Soldiers|
We made Clothespin Soldiers this weekend. I dragged out all the supplies and my daughter and I painted away, sitting in our PJs and listening to Christmas music. We used Plaid FolkArt paints.

Our soldiers aren’t in traditional colors, we decided to go bright and wild and I love how they turn out. They match my daughter’s pine cone tree creation perfectly.

While we were crafting away, my nerdy, scientist husband couldn’t resist and asked to join us. He made a clothespin alien. Nothing says Christmas like that right?

Seriously though, I love the alien and I just know that it’s going to be a family keepsake. Every year, we’ll pull it out of the box and laugh. You can’t plan stuff like this, it just happens, and when it does, it’s priceless.
