Christmas Ornaments

I did a craft the other day with the children. We made these two ornaments. They first made them at a St. Nicholas craft day with their school group. I really like how they went with the other ornaments I have and the children really like having ornaments they made on the tree.



These are the supplies we used. (Sorry about the color I had the camera on the wrong setting.)

We cut these from old Christmas cards.

We took the cup cake tin and flattened it. Then you glue a round piece of card stock and ribbon on one side and the picture on the shinny side.

Then spread School Glue on top of the picture, and finally sprinkle clear glitter over the glue and let it dry.

This pine cone ornament is even easier. First tie a ribbon with a hook on the top. Then spread glitter glue on the edges. I like these because they add a natural but sparkly look to the tree.

    Oh, wow, and expecting #12!! How fun your home must be!!! My sister has 8 - all boys!!! She scared me; I only have 3. :) No I'm kidding. I LOVE visiting her; her home is sooo fun and amazing!! Actually, I would have loved to have had more, but we had to stop at 3; my husband's sanity was at stake. :)

  2. I tried to become a follower, but it wouldn't let me. Said the request was too large? Is it insulting me? I'll be back and try again. :)

  3. Sorry about being a pest. It worked this time. :)
