Kids crafts Easy to make - Christmas decorations
Pine cone Christmas tree decoration
Dry pine cones
Green, gold and red glitter
Paint the pine cone with glue and sprinkle the green glitterover it and leave to dry.
Make a little star from the card and cover it with the yellow glitter. Once the glitter has dried on the tree make some wavey lines with the glue and sprinkle the red glitter (so it looks like tinsel on a tree) shake off the excess. Tie the ribbon in a circle and glue to the pine cone and hang from the Christmas tree.
An assortment of plastic beads
Cut the string according to the length desired for the garland.
String on the first bead and tie a knot to stop it falling off. Now continue putting the beads on the string until there is just a bit left. Tie a knot at the end of the string. Now you are ready to hang your bead garland from the tree.
Christmas tree card holder
Large piece of card
Draw a large christmas tree on to the card and cut it out. Paint the tree and leave to dry. Once dry draw your decorations then paint them and leave to dry. Apply glue as if it was tinsel dangled across the tree then cover with the glitter and shake off the excess. Now that you have completed your tree, decorations, tinsel and all punch a hole in the top and thread the ribbon through.
With help from an adult cut roughly 20+ slits all the way down the tree. Now you can hang your Christmas tree card holder from the door or wall and show off all your cards.
Lots of paper in a variety of different colours
Cut the paper into strips of roughly 40cm x 10cm. Take one of the strips and tape it together so it forms a loop. Thread the next strip through the first one tape together and continue. You will see it begin to look like a chain. Continue this until it is long enough to stretch from corner to corner a cross the ceiling. Make another one for opposite corners. Tape a piece of string in a loop to each end of the chains. Now get an adult to hang it from the ceiling.
