I was so inspired by this idea that I tried it out for Wesley and Preston while Devin was at school. We didn’t have similar supplies though, so this is what the boys and I came up with. It was fun and I’m sure you could use whatever you have lying around!
By the way, Pink and Green Mama has TONS of awesome ideas for kiddos. I usually have to simplify things when it comes to arts & crafts, but I think the best part is getting inspired to try something out and just doing it in a way that works best for you.
Happy creating and playing!
While looking at pictures from The Inspired Room Christmas home tours the blogger, Melissa, was showing pictures from Sweet Something Designs and I really liked the Noel banner above the fireplace (3rd photo down).
I figured I’d have a hard time trying to find it here, so thought to attempt to make one myself. I had a red curtain that I wasn’t using and some leftover cloth so I just cut out the triangles and letters with the other cloth and glue gunned everything, including folding the tops over some garden string. — So this whole project was made without any sewing involved, although I’m sure that would of looked neater. But I was happy to have a no fuss project!
Anyways, this might be something you could adapt, like making a banner for a kids room with cute cloth…and if you have a glue gun then you don’t even have to sew it.
Here’s the banner:
I’d love to hear about any easy Christmas crafting projects!
I wanted to quickly pop in because it’s the 1st of December and that’s exciting!
I tried making soup and homemade bread tonight and my soup was a complete flop (I used heavy cream that was off!), but my husband and mother-in-law we’re fine with having a simple dinner of bread, cheese, tomatoes, olives, and a little wine for this frazzled lady.
I love glue guns, if you don’t have one they’re a must. — Coffee container turned Christmassy art supply holder. A glue gun, some Christmas ribbons and knick-knacks goes far doesn’t it?
