Hot Caramel Apple Cider (for grown ups!) - Notes from Erika: Not sure what to say, but L-O-V-E!!! I used 1 gallon of cider, 1 cup of brown sugar, and 5 or 6 cinnamon sticks. Put it in a crock pot on high for a few hours before the party. Right before the guests get there, add a whole bottle of caramel vodka. DELICIOUS!!!

Each kid gets their own wrapping paper - none of the gifts are marked, and in order to know which gifts are theirs, they have to find a tiny piece of their wrapping paper in the bottom of their stocking. its a little last minute excitement, as they see the gifts, but dont know which belongs to who. Cute and some great Christmas traditions in this post.
Saw off a slice of the Christmas tree trunk, label with the year's date, and make an ornament out of it!
Says pinner: Use old rusty funnels to make a great rustic Christmas tree. You can also paint some funnels brown, then another color over the top and sand a few places so the brown shows underneath. Or you can rust some funnels yourself. I've use hydrogen peroxide to rust things and vinegar works as well. There are several more ways to rust things if you want to do some research.

Scented Pinecones - Rinse pinecones under running water, lay pinecones on an old cookie sheet and bake at 200F until the pinecones open up (kills bugs, melts sap etc) spread pinecones out on layers of newspaper. Use a foam brush to apply glue. Mix cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg in baggie. Add pinecones in spice mix. Shake to cover. Allow to dry overnight. Use scented pine cones in gift baskets, on wreaths or placed in bowls. Hang them from your door handles or from your Christmas tree.
