Christmas Crafts for Kids

Christmas is one of those holidays that starts before it actually begins, and you celebrate it throughout December. Part of celebrating Christmas is getting together with family and friends and decorating your home with Christmas decorations and your tree with Christmas ornaments. Here are two lovely Christmas ornaments that are sure to please the kids and entertain the entire family.

Sequin Christmas Ornament
The sequin Christmas ornament is a very stylish looking adornment. When completed, the sequin ornament will reflect all nearby light and, thus, gives off a glimmer similar to a disco ball.

Materials Needed:

  • Approximately 200-300 small sequin pins
  • Various sizes of Styrofoam balls
  • Small beads
  • Sequin
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
Instructions:
You will want to start by inserting a small bead onto a sequin pin. The bead should rest comfortably at the flat or rounded tip of the pin. Afterwards, you will want to insert a sequin onto the same sequin pin. The pin should then have a small bead and a sequin right underneath it. Once completed, you will insert the pin onto the Styrofoam ball. Make sure that the pin is fitted firmly into the Styrofoam. Repeat this process until the entire Styrofoam ball is covered with these completed pins. Furthermore, you can use different color sequin and beads to create distinct patterns on the ornament. When you finally reach the final pin, take a piece of ribbon and create a loop that is approximately 2-4 inches in diameter. Place the pin at the intersection of the ribbon and then place it on the Styrofoam ball. This ribbon loop will act as the hanger for the ornament so that you can hang it up on your tree.

Tiny Gift Box Ornaments
These tiny gift box ornaments are a real pleasure to have hanging on your tree. They are simply adorable and look like tiny presents left by Santa Clause.

Materials Needed:
  • Wrapping paper
  • Small raisin boxes
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Ornament hooks (optional)
Instructions:
You want to begin by cutting out a small square of wrapping paper approximately 3x3 inches. Afterwards, place the raisin box on the wrapping paper and wrap the raisin box like you would a regular gift box, at a much smaller scale. Once the raisin box is wrapped, cut a piece of ribbon approximately 3-5 inches in length and wrap it around the box. Make sure that when you tie the ribbon you leave enough space to use a portion of the ribbons loop to hang it on your tree. However, if you prefer, you can use an ornament hook and insert one end under a portion of the ribbon and then hang it on your tree from there.
