12 Days of Christmas Ornaments

The 12 Days of Christmas hold a special place in my heart. It opens the season of giving and there are many memories of years past when I would bundle up my children and they would help out by door bell ditching a special gift to an unassuming neighbor. My favorite 12 Days gift to give is a piece of the nativity each day and on Christmas Eve delivering Baby Jesus.

In honor of those memories I hand-crafted mini matchboxes for my little tree. Each matchbox is hand wrapped with paper, antiqued, stamped, decorated, and made with LOVE. When you pull the little box open it reveals “Partridge in a Pear Tree” for day one…and continues with the theme for each day represented.

On the First Day of Christmas my true love gave to me
a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

 

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Two Turtle Doves.

 

On the Third Day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Three French Hens.
On the Fourth Day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Four Calling Birds.

 

On the Fifth Day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Five Gold Rings.

 

On the Sixth Day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Six Geese A-Laying.

On the Seventh Day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Seven Swans A-Swimming.

 

On the Eighth Day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Eight Maids A-Milking.

 

On the Ninth Day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Nine Ladies Dancing.

 

On the Tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Ten Lords A-Leaping.

 

On the Eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Eleven Pipers Piping.
{Pic coming soon}
On the Twelve day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Twelve Drummers Drumming.
Sigh…okay that song is LONG {and a little annoying}. But I love, love, love what this tradition represents. I hope you’ll find JOY this year in giving over the Twelve Days of Christmas!
For this craft I used:
12 mini matchboxes (Dollar Tree)
Tone on tone paper in muted gold and crèmes (Hobby Lobby)
Gold Glitter Stickers (Hobby Lobby)
12 Days of Christmas Stamp Set (Stampin’ Up)
Wet Cement colored ink pad (Amazon)
Antique Buttons, Christmas ribbons, glitter, glue, and jewelry to embellish.
Merry Christmas!
xoxo, Amylia
