One Christmas Lasts Forever Car Ornament Craft
One Christmas Lasts Forever – Car Ornament Craft
It is no secret that I love books. But what I love even more is when the opportunity arises to combine great books, with creative activities, or delicious recipes. This post will be about the former. But if you are salivating for a delicious recipe with a literary connection, be sure to check out this post : (Send Judah First Apple Pie Post)
While the paint was drying, we took the opportunity to read, One Christmas Lasts Forever.
We used hot glue to piece the car together.
And there you have it, a “hand-painted orange car, with bright blue wheels.”
I was happy with the simplicity of the craft, as well as the ability to customize it with a photo.
I love the meaningful addition this ornament provides when giving One Christmas Lasts Forever, as a gift. Or just to make with your family, so that you can hold your own “hand-painted orange car, with bright blue wheels” in your hands.

Several years ago, I decided that I liked the idea of a “New Years Challenge” rather than a “New Year’s Resolution.” As a person with a competitive nature, a “challenge” was something I felt more compelled to work toward and “win”, rather than a resolution, which always felt like a change you made for January and then forgot about for the rest of the year.
Last year, I gifted books to everyone on our Christmas List. Young and old, near and far, everyone got a book. I loved the excuse to spend time in the bookstore; looking at spines, reading back covers, asking for recommendations.
I loved to read as a child, (and still do as an adult). As a child, (and again still as an adult), we followed a pretty strict “No Christmas decorations or music until after Thanksgiving” rule. When it was finally time to bring out all of the Christmas tubs, my favorite one was the heaviest of all.
