Here is what you need:

– Bow Tie noodles

– Green paint

– Green glitter

– Red ribbon

– Glue

 

Start by painting the bow tie noodles with green paint. While they are still wet, sprinkle the green glitter on top of them

After they dry, glue the noodes into a circle onto a base. Our white foam board and poster board make for the perfect tool. Cut a small piece of red ribbon, tie it into a bow, and add it to your holiday wreath!

Here is another great handmade holiday wreath idea that is great for older kids!

First you need toilet paper rolls – about 20 of them. You will have to paint them entirely green. Once dry you will cut them into pieces as pictured below. You will need to use hot glue in the center to hold them together. You are going to put together two wreaths – one being larger than the other. Form them into a circle, and begin securing them with hot glue. You will glue the smaller wreath on top of the larger one

Ornaments are wonderful gifts from the heart because it is the gift that keeps on giving. It can be used year after year, and it will make the recipient think of you every time they hang that ornament on their tree. These ornaments can be given to teachers, a friend, a family member, or even your boss at work!

A great material for the base of your handmade ornament are these is our E-Z Print Sign Board, it comes in smaller pieces so its easier to cut. You can also use our poster board products if you like, and cut the board into smaller sections, making it easier to work with

You can use a word stamp to get the same effect as above, or even use an old book if you have one laying around

To make the base, you need to form the paper in the shape of a cone like below. Tear paper into small rectangles that measure about 2.5″X2″ Roll the rectangle into a cone, and use glue to make it secure. Each ornament uses 20 rolls so plan accordingly

For the center piece, you can cut stars from a heavy card stock. Our thicker poster board, or foam board products are perfect for this step. The star should be about 3 inches. You can print an outline online to make this step easier for you

Next step is to make the hanger. Use a thread and needed and go through the center of the top point on the stars

Now to put it all together! Glue the cones onto the star. Add rolls to the spaces and fill in between the cones. You can add glitter to the edges with a paint brush, glue, and glitter color of your choice

After you shook the glitter off, you can add another piece to the center. Cut a 2 inch circle from your remaining materials and using a sticker, or similar supply you can add a letter to the center of the circle. Make it pop by painting over the letter with glue and covering it with glitter
