Holiday Fun!

Updated: Dec 8, 2020




Snowflakes on my eyelashes, steaming hot chocolate, carolers at the

door, the scents of peppermint and pine wafting throughout the house...

these are some of my favorite sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of

the holidays. And it’s all coming very soon!


Get the Holidays started by making ornaments for the tree!


Materials: three craft or popsicle sticks, green paint, glitter, glue, assorted sequins or beads,

photograph (of child, family, or Christmas scene), red ribbon.


Directions

1. Paint the craft sticks and sprinkle on glitter.


2. After the sticks dry, glue them

together to form a triangle.


3. Glue on assorted sequins, beads, or other

decorations; let dry.


4. Trim the photograph to a triangle the same size

as the sticks.


5. Tie a red ribbon loop around the top

of the craft stick triangle.


6. Glue the photograph to the back of

the craft stick triangle.


Hang your Christmas Tree on your Christmas Tree!
