Kids Christmas Ornament Craft!!

Standard

Yayy!!! 50 days until christmas.

Last year was first time, I have set up the tree with store-bought ornaments/decorations. We  had friends over for dinner for almost all through December. Since it was our first time, we were too excited and had multiple photo sessions 😉

Here is a picture of us – Christmas 2013 🙂

This year, I definitely need more ornaments for my 6 FT Faux Christmas tree 🙂

I came across some really fancy  ornaments and holiday decorations, sadly they cost a pretty penny.

So, this year it is going to be D.I.Y ornaments and I am super excited to start my series with some amazing projects.

Well, in my first series it is going to be a kids chirstmas Ornament craft.

I loveee them 🙂

So all you need is a scale and some white and red stems from dollar store/walmart.

Star

Measure the stems ( mine are 30 cms). Divide the stem to 5 equal parts ( 6 cm each side) and form 3 v’s and join the ends.

Measure the white stem and cut 6 equal parts(10 cms each – total 2 stems). Bind 2 together which makes 3 stems. Now form “V” shape at each end and join together with a white piece of stem.

 Candy Cane

Take each of white and red stem and twist. Bend it into half and further twist and shape it. You can add a bow too with green stem.

About Nima

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
