With Christmas less than 2 weeks away, we’re going to go over some fun decorating ideas that are great for the family! A holiday wreath is an easy craft that children of all ages will love making. They make for excellent decor inside or outside of the home. You can also give a holiday wreath as a gift to a friend or loved one that they will love and appreciate! The first wreath we will show you have to make is the bow tie noodle wreath

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

Then you are done with your holiday wreath! Add some red beads for a finishing touch to represent berries. Don’t forget to visit www.iClicknPrint.com for all your holiday stationary customizing needs!

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!

After creating and attaching the leaves, your “Thankful Tree” is done. Place the tree in an area in your home so that you can see it every day. The tree will bring gratitude to your daily life and you will constantly be able to read and be reminded of the things you are thankful for. This project is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face every time you look at it! I have included a list of the materials that are needed below!
