Where to Find Materials
Craft stores (whether you visit in person or online) such as Jo-Ann, A. C. Moore, and Michaels are great sources for many of the items featured here, including thread, buttons, colorful paper, ribbons, felt, yarn, wool, wreath forms, synthetic berries and leaves, and Styrofoam cones. However, part of the fun of making many of these crafts is browsing a variety of thrift and antiques shops beforehand for old notions and ephemera. Or try searching eBay.com and Etsy.com for mercury-glass ornaments, bottle-brush trees, vintage Santas, old lots of pearl buttons, and other adornments and materials.
