Are you crafty? I’m not. But, because of my parenting deficits, you should suffer?

Here are some links to a variety of projects scattered across the interwebs:

You don’t really need to look much further than Creative Jewish Mom for your holiday craft ideas. Here are some wine cork stamp cards, and some woven paper apples.

I’m not sure why they consider this “eco-friendly” (in fact, it’s not much of a craft, either) but here’s a paper apple craft from

Here’s a round stuffed challah made out of old pantyhose (Does anyone still wear pantyhose?) from I would LOVE to see a photo of this if anyone makes it.

I don’t know if this really counts as a craft, but here’s an edible honey jar from the wonderful Bible Belt Balabusta. She has another decidedly educational project for apple-print placemats over at kveller.
