It is coming down to the wire for holiday crafts and I was sort of at a loss of what I could share tonight, seeing how I am knee deep in about three units I am trying to get ready to share with you guys…SO, then I remembered the craft I did last year… that I am planning on doing later this week.
I have used the regular round glass or plastic ornaments…large and medium, depending upon what I could find. Last year at Michael’s I found these flat glass ornaments that worked really well. Anyway, I start by cutting the photo of my student in a circle, a bit smaller than the ornament. Then I roll the photo and stick it into the ornament. Using a thin stick, or a pencil, I unroll it and have ( at times) used two sided tape to affix the corners of the photo. To cover the back off the photo, I use pieces of tissue paper rolled into balls…I have done green and red before…and other years I have had the kids take their finger and dip into paint and dot the back of the ornament with red and green polka dots! Last year, I used paint markers to do swirly and dots around the edge of the front..and to put the year on the back.
Maybe somebody might be able to get some ideas from this! =)
We don’t get out until the 21st…so I still have some time to finish mine! (luckily)
