November 2014 seemed to be a crafting month. After our Letter A crafts, we continued with more crafts. It was a merry season, with Pinterest filled with great crafts ideas. And it seemed so logical to make some ornaments for our first ever Christmas tree. We did 2 ornaments for our trees, 2 mini tress and a Xmas card. These ideas were all from Pinterest. Unfortunately, (3 yrs on) I’m unable to find the links to give the originators their credits.
We taped craft sticks together to make snow flakes and stars.
Next we added glitter to the snowflakes. To keep the mess to the minimal, I got Sweet Butterfly to squeeze the glue onto a plate. She used the paint brush to cover the snowflake with glue.We placed the snowflake into a ziplog bag, poured golden glitters and gave it a good shake.
I guessed the best craft was making a Xmas card. This was a special one as it captured both Sweet Butterfly’s and Busy Bee’s handprints. Again, we brushed glue over it.
Added shimmering sequins.
While we were busy crafting, Busy Bee entertained himself.
I’m kicking myself for not having any photos of our tree. Sadly, it remained in our storeroom after Christmas 2014. It was the first and last time.
