Christmas Tree Ornament Craft (made from lids)
For these ornaments, we used old plastic lids, glitter and beads, some ribbon and lots of glue! You can really use any sort of items to decorate the lids - paper would be great as well! Or colorful pages from magazines. Older kids might like to look through their old teen magazines and cut out sayings or pictures that they like. Anything will do! Keep it light and simple and let your child experiment creating a n ornament that truly reflects their personality (be sure to write the date on the back too!)
For the ones we made, we covered the entire center of the lid with glue and then for one, simply dumped some glitter on top of it and shook off the excess. We then glued a ribbon hanger to the back and added a picture to the front.
For the second ornament, we again covered the enter center with glue, but this time used sequins and beads to make a tree design. And like with the first, we also glued a ribbon hanger to the back. VERY EASY!!! you may sparkle a bit for a while if using glitter, but the results will be well worth it! Have fun!
