I just got an email from the store Plasticland, and its subject line sums up my plans for the day: “Deck the halls and avoid the malls!” Christmas music was already all over the radio on Wednesday when we made the drive from NYC to my mother’s house in South Jersey. Now, fueled by leftovers and some great ideas from the new issue of Sweet Paul Magazine — like these Scotty Dog Ornaments — the decorating begins.

As much as I love some of the old ornaments we’ve collected for sentimental reasons, the idea of making ornaments fills me with the holiday spirit. Plus, these cute canines couldn’t be easier to craft. All you need is tartan fabric, card stock, glue, scissors and some string. I doubt we’ll want to neglect all the old ornaments entirely, so I’m thinking these doggies will get their own tree — a smaller one that we’ll keep in the bedroom. (Another perfect second tree perch? The porch.)

Perhaps this is the start of an all-new tradition! Or maybe I’m just mad for plaid
