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

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

The holidays are fast approaching and everyone has already begun to think about what they want to buy for presents, or they have already started their holiday shopping. Today we are going to show you a great idea for a handmade gift that can be created in so many ways – we will show you how to made a handmade ornament. After all, isn’t it better when it comes from the heart?

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

The last step is to hot glue your letter to the center of the ornament and you have your handmade ornament gift! Super easy and I bet you already have all these materials in your home!

Here are the basic materials to make a handmade menorah:

- paper

- coloring utensils

- scissors

- glue

- craft sticks

- paint or markers

- toilet paper rolls / paper towel rolls

- yellow poster board

 

Save either 8 toilet paper rolls or 4 paper towel rolls that can be cut in half to be used for the candles. Clean off any tissue bits from the rolls and paint them in blue. You can use one shade or multiple – its up to you!

When dry, using a paper towel roll, cut it so there is a larger half that can be used as the center shamash candle for your handmade menorah.

After you have done this, its time to make the candles. I used craft sticks and yellow poster board for this step. The poster board can be cut into sections to make it easier to work with. Cut the paper into teardrop shapes to represent the flames. Glue the teardrop candle flames to the ends of the craft sticks.

Now you are done making your own handmade menorah! Each night when its time to “light” the menoarah, place each stick in the center of each roll.

An alternative for older children, can be creating a base as well, that the candles can be glued into. You can glue a candle in for each night of Hanukkah! www.iClicknPrint.com has all the tools you need to make your crafts and projects at home!

Its the last Thanksgiving craft before the big day! Here is a simple and super easy tutorial for a paper turkey roll that your kids can work on while you prepare one of – if not the biggest meal of the year.

Supplies that you will need to make your paper turkey -

- A toilet paper or paper towel roll

- A piece of poster board or foam board (any size will work)

- Glue

- Paint brush

- Glitter glue

- Googly eyes

- Package of E-Z Print Primary Variety Sign Board

You can start by cutting your paper towel or toilet paper roll in half. You can also cut a piece of foam board or poster board into a half moon shape, which will be used as the body.

Then, you can use the E-Z Print Variety Pack, and choose the colors you would like for the turkey’s “body parts.” Orange or red are perfect for the beak, and orange, black, or brown can be used for the feet.

Next, you can paint the paper towel or toilet paper roll if you would like. Or you can leave it as is, since its already brown. Glue your turkeys parts onto the roll, adding the eyes, beak and feet.

Sit the body to dry, and while your project is drying, you can move onto the fun part – creating the feathers for your paper turkey roll!

While loose glitter can be used, glitter glue is perfect for younger children who like to get messy with their crafts. You can use a dish for the different colors of glitter glue, and add to your projects with a paint brush.

Once the plates are dry, you can now attach your turkey roll. You can use tape or glue for this step, as well as adding the feet to the bottom. Here is the end result – a cute handmade paper turkey for the holidays! They make for great home decor!

Get your children thinking about gratitude this Thanksgiving with a lovely handmade “Thankful Tree.”

IMGP5081

Your kids will love putting this together, and have so much fun decorating the leaves! There is something about taking the time to stop and write down the blessings in your life that makes them sweeter and makes you appreciate them more. There are many different ways to do this craft – so we will go through a few.

The first step is to create the base of the tree. Our poster board and foam board products make for the perfect base! They can be cut, colored, and placed together however you would like. Another great alternative is paper bags. You can tear and crumple paper bag pieces to create a large tree!

The next step is to think of things/people/places your are thankful for and compile a list. You can make “rules” for the leaves, or leave your family members to choose to make as many leaves as they’d like, with anything they are thankful for. A great product to use for the leaves is our poster board. We offer a variety of sizes and colors – including red, orange, yellow, and green – the perfect colors for leaves.

Another great thankful tree idea is to make one with twigs from outside, or a spool of baker’s twine, which can be purchased at the craft store. This smaller version makes the perfect Thanksgiving family dinner center piece. You can even have your guest create a leaf of their own to add to the tree!
