Martha Stewart's Handmade Holiday Crafts
Martha Stewart

Genre: nonfiction, crafts
Pages: 365
Rating: *****

This is my first review of a nonfiction book, so bear with me.  Martha Stewart's Handmade Holiday Crafts is a huge book of crafts for every holiday.  There are 225 projects, for 10 major US holidays.  They range from simple paper cards for Mother's Day to Gilded egg ornaments for Christmas. 

OK I have to admit I have been a 'follower' of Martha Stewart's craft projects since I married.  The Gilded eggs, from blowen eggs, have been on my tree since I made them 8 or 9 years ago when it was published in Martha Stewart Living.  They are just as lovely as they were then.

Product DetailsLike the magazine, Martha Stewart's Handmade Holiday Crafts has step by step directions and beautiful photos to go with each project.  Some projects are a little out there.  I don't know anyone who wants to make striped bunting for the house on 4th of July, it's easier to buy it.  But most are very doable.  Many are even kid friendly and perfect for treats for kids.

In all honsetly, I'm putting this book on my to-buy list.  Shocker I know.

I loved the book and look forward to making the Crayon and waxed paper hearts with my girls for Valentine's Day!
