Look What I Made

Every Christmas my kids look forward to making ornaments. It is so fun letting them make some of their own creations that they can hold on to as the years go by. This is one that kids will really enjoy and is easy to do with a little supervision.

You will need:

twigs

twine or yarn

hot glue gun and sticks

buttons for the eyes and nose (2 black and 1 red)

Begin by cutting your twigs to equal lengths (6-8 inches works well) and gluing them together in a point.

Let the glue set for a couple of minutes to make sure that they are good and attached to one another.

Now you will begin to wrap your twine around the sticks. I began by going through the center of the sticks and then covering it by twisting around.

Wrap around the stick holding the twine so that it is going on without slack. It isn’t necessary to glue every time you go around, but glue periodically. Some areas may still seem pretty bare, be sure to go around those spots a little extra so that it has enough coverage.

Once you have the coverage you want, clip off the end of your twine and glue it in the back where it won’t show.

Now you are ready to glue your eyes and nose on. I used buttons that were smooth on top but anything will work. I just liked the looks of these ones for this. Glue them on.

If you want to be able to hang it off a branch, you can now take some ribbon (or use the twine like I did) to make a hanger for the top. I put a dot of hot glue on the top and than wrapped the twine around it twice on each antler.

Maybe its just me, but I love a good pun or play on words. I think they are cute in the right context. I especially love when they go along with a small gift. That is why I searched for one when I decided to give my kid’s teachers lotions and body sprays for Christmas this year. I couldn’t find anything that I liked, so instead I made my own and now I can share them with you!

These are great for more than just lotions though. The “Berry” Christmas one would be great for anything having to do with berries. The SCENT-sational one (center in photo above) would be great with anything scented. (think lotions, soaps, room sprays, candles, so many different ideas!). And the Be Merry is great for anything and everything. I think they are a fun way to add a special finishing touch to your thoughtful gift.

Savior

Free printable primary program cover 2015

It is primary program season! If you are LDS you are going to love this printable!

I serve in the primary presidency in my ward and it is my favorite calling I have ever had. I believe this is the 4th program our presidency has put together. Its about time that we made our own program cover!

If you aren’t LDS, each year in the fall the ward (a ward is a church congregation that worships together according to the area where you live) has the children give a presentation of what they have been learning over the year. It is fun for the kids to get to share what they have learned with their parents and fun for the parents to watch their cute kids up on the stand!

If you haven’t had your program yet, feel free to use this for your program cover! I have it saved in color but prints beautifully in black and white!

You can right click the photo at the beginning of the post and save it, than print it, or use this Savior  for a higher quality image.

Tissue paper pumpkins, great party favors

Pumpkins are one of the first things that come to mind when I think of fall. I love decorating with them and using them whenever I can. I have never been a huge Halloween fan. I don’t mind it, but having kids has made me enjoy it more because it is so fun for them. But, I am not a fan of the creepy side of the day. I like the cutesy, fun part. These are perfect if you are like me!Easy Halloween or Thanksgiving treats , perfect for school parties. Tissue paper Pumpkins, kids crafts made easy

All you will need is:

orange tissue paper (cut 1 sheet into 4 equal squares)

green washi tape

candy or surprise to put inside

tissue paper pumpkin candy holders, tissue paper, pumpkin, fall, halloween, thanksgiving, craft, fall craft, halloween craft, craft for kids

All you have to do is take a couple of pieces of your candy and place them in the center, pulling the sides up into a little bag. Make sure that all of the edge is able to be gathered together so there isn’t any holes for your candy to fall out.

Once it is gathered give it a couple of twists to keep it from opening. Once you have twisted it shut, wrap the washi tape around the twist. You will have some paper hanging over the top. Simply trim that off with a pair of scissors to leave a clean edge.

These would be great for party favors for a fall party, a class party, for trick or treaters, or even for a Thanksgiving treat on each plate in a place setting. The kid’s table would really love it!
