(Nov. 17, 2013) Last year we made awesome cinnamon ornaments for our country style Christmas tree, they still smell and look awesome this year but I wanted Nico to make something new this year. Our friend at 3 Dinosaurs had provided us with our lacing card tree top last year, a brown bear (fits the country theme), when she sent us our full bear she also sent just his face (full page), so I thought it would look nice to have the bear face as ornaments to match our topper.
Obviously full page was too big so I printed them 1/4 page size. We cut the faces leaving a little white around so the face would pop out more in the tree, laminated them, cut them again leaving a little edge and hole punched them all around. We cut red ric rac lengths (affiliate link), for the topper we had used red silky ribbon but I wanted something more vintage this time so ric rac it was. Instead of taping the end to the back I made a bow with it, on top of the head or near the ears for girl bears and under the face for boy bears.
This is not only a cute ornament but he also worked on his fine motor skills
This year Royal Baloo has some great Christmas lacing cards that just want to make me do even more than our little bears but our tree is full You can take any image you’d like to do this and do what we did. You could even use these coloring pages from Gift of Curiosity, print 1/4 page and have your child draw them before you laminate them.
This post is part of the great “20 Days of a Kid-Made Christmas”. There are two other great blogs posting for this project today, so please hop over and check them out!
You can also find all kinds of kid-made ornaments here for a kid-made Christmas & all the ornaments that being linked up will be pinned here as well, so if you have any ornaments of your own, we’d love for you to link them up right here!
If you do this, we’d LOVE to see a photo of it. Email it to us or post it on our Facebook page.
