The stockings can be used as ornaments or to hold small items (like candy canes). Or, you can make a larger version to hang up. :0)
Hand Print Christmas Trees This year is the first year I have been able to make something for Christmas with DS, and we had lots of fun getting paint and glue everywhere! He is 18 months, so just shows you can do crafts with Children from an early age! We covered his hands in various shades of green paint and made 24 hand prints on some light weight cardstock. While we waited for these to dry, DS painted himself and a sheet of card in gold and painted some red in a triangle to make a base for the Chrismas tree. When everything was dry, I cut around the handprints and then we stuck them down with glue in the shape of a christmas tree. DS then painted "Baubles" on the tree by dabbing a paint dauber over the paper. I cut a star shape out of the gold painted card and we stuck this on top. Finally we added a piece of multicoloured wool as tinsel. We had great fun making this and getting messy! ~angela~
