Happy December and welcome to another round of the Designer Crafts Connection blog hop! This month we're making handmade gifts. I'm sure you'll find a wonderful variety of super crafts just in time for the holidays.
I had my kid crafters over last Friday and this is what we made. It's my version of a craft stick Nativity Ornament. You'll find it quick and easy to do and the kids will have fun with it.
Wood pieces: 14 craft sticks, 2 wooden spoons or medium ovals, small oval, 2 medium circles and one small circle, star
Paint: brown, yellow, face color, black
A small amount of wood fiber
Twine for hanging loop
Tools: paintbrush, toothpick, scissors
First, lay out the sticks and cut or snap off to size. I used Skill Sticks(R) that you can snap apart. If you use popsicle stitcks, have an adult use a pair of scissors to cut them. Arrange your sticks to create a point in the center. I've used ten sticks for the back.
Next, paint the roof and cross beams brown and the star yellow.
Enjoy hopping around the Designer Crafts Connection blogs to see more fun handmade crafting!
