Today Beth Curtin shares this fabulous craft project to do with kids. This is a great use for old magazines and the pile of catalogs that seem to come daily this time of year. Find more cool crafty ideas on her blog, Acorn Pies.
Here are Beth’s easy-to-follow intructions:
My child and I made these together. Prepare some small squares of recycled paper glued back to back. You could use a retired calendar, magazine photos, or last year’s Christmas cards. We used a butterfly calendar. These squares measure about 3 inches across.
When the glue is dry, crease on the diagonal in each direction.
When the glue is dry, tie thread to the top of the handle and hang your new ornament on the tree!
