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!

Light up your home with a new twist on the traditional! Hanukkah is just around the corner – and this craft is one you and your kids will love! The possibilities are endless with this handmade menorah project – and you will be sure to find one to suit your style.

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!

“The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values.” – William S. Burroughs

For most people graduation day is one of the best days of their lives.  Family and friends gather to celebrate this joyous occasion as it is a huge accomplishment. This day serves as an incitement for students to enjoy academic achievements and a way for parents to celebrate how proud they are of their children. This landmark in life is a moment that is worth remembering and cherishing, whether you’re graduating grade school, high school, or college, you walk earnestly towards the stage elegantly dressed in a robe and tassel. Graduation is not so much an ending but rather a new beginning. It embarks the start of new adventures. For adolescents, this is the start of letting go of your parent’s embrace and testing your wings in high school. For high school students, this is the beginning of a new journey to self-discovery and finding out what you really want out of life in college. For college students, graduation marks the beginning of “real life” as you reach out of your comfort zone to something completely new.

Whatever the occasion, let iClicknPrint be a part of your special day! Here is what you need:

1. Invitations from Geographics

Grad Letterhead

 

2. Envelopes from Geographics
