Homemade Holiday is a wildly successful program series that the Hopkins District and Dorr Township libraries have hosted for several years now. It’s an opportunity for patrons to get out and relax with friends while making their own gifts and decorations for the holidays. We’ve done projects such as linen gift bags, etched snowflake mirrors and glass-fused ornaments (view the finished products in the Photo Slideshow at right).

I love the holidays, so I always look forward to planning many different holiday programs just for teens. This year, I decided to create a program where teens can create holiday crafts to give to friends and family. My plan is to have several stations where they can create holiday cards, a sweet treat, ornaments and a peppermint candy bowl. I also really want to have a gift-wrapping station so they can wrap all of their presents, as well as a tasty refreshment center. I found an awesome recipe for hot cocoa and holiday frosted brownies for the refreshment center.
