Crafts for Christmas: Gingerbread man ornament



When it comes to crafts and Christmas, there seems to be almost unlimited possibilities.

And that’s the case for Tatiana Mizerina, who has been doing crafts for most of her life.

Mizerina, who is originally from Russia but moved to P.E.I. three years ago, runs her business, Colourful Island, out of her home in Stratford.

Mizerina says living on the Island has influenced her hand-made items. For example, she has created a fox family collection, a pink lady’s slipper collection, a felt stone collection and an old lighthouse collection.

“It’s completely about P.E.I.,” said Mizerina. “Everything is colourful and inspired by the Island. I use material made or found on P.E.I.”

In this three-part seasonal series, she shares a few of her ideas to trim a tree with some hand-made items. The remaining two items in the series will run in the Guardian in time to create all three crafts.

For more information or to purchase some of Mizerina’s products, visit www.facebook.com/colourfulisland or www.colourfulisland.etsy.com.

See the gallery above for step-by-step instructions for creating a gingerbread man ornament.
