Basic Christmas Wreath

Posted on Updated on

Why spend 40 dollars on a Christmas wreath, when you can have one decorated by one of your kids?

This is a very basic Christmas wreath craft. Its great to do with your kids because you can easily build on it and decorate it as you wish. Let your kids use their imagination.

Christmas Wreath

Directions

  1. Print the template. You will need at least two of the leaf pattern pages. (Template)
  2. Color and cut out all of the pieces.
  3. Cut out the center from a paper plate, leaving a ring.
  4. Glue the leaves in random order onto the paper ring.
  5. Finally glue on the ribbon.

Here’s were you get to use your imagination. You can use practically anything to decorate this wreath: pompoms, stickers, glitter, beads, craft feathers, string, foam stickers, ribbon, tissue paper, sequence, buttons, cranberries, popcorn, craft jewels, jewel garlands, plastic poinsettias. The possibilities are endless.

Dipped Pine Cone Ornaments

Posted on Updated on

Today’s post comes from a guest blogger, Mary-Kate Warner from Christianity Cove, sharing how a simple pine cone can teach our kids a great message this Christmas season.

The pine cone is the only Christmas ornament that can be found on the forest floor. It is simple, free and beautiful, just like our salvation. But it is also complex like God’s wonderful universe. While making pine cone ornaments, kids can come to better understand our relationship with the Almighty.

Materials

  • Pine Cones, Different Sizes
  • •Acrylic Paint, Variety Of Colors
  • •Paint Brushes, One For Each Child
  • •Wax paper
  • •Glue
  • •Glitter
  • •Red Or Green Ribbon, Thin

Instructions

1. Paint the pine cone in whatever paint combination you choose. You  can either just paint the tips or paint by immersion—whichever works best for you. (Immersion is messier!)

2. Place the pine cone, wide side down, onto wax paper.

3. Allow it to completely dry.

4. Brush the dry, painted tips with smaller bits of white, if desired.  Or you can brush tips with glue and sprinkle with glitter to add some extra sparkle.

5. Thread a piece of red or green ribbon through the pine cone on the bottom of the base. Tie a knot and leave enough length of ribbon so it can be tied to a tree branch or bow of a Christmas package.

Discussion

Pine cones make great Christmas decorations. They’re beautiful, aren’t they? And we can find them on the forest floor…they’re like free gifts from God! How is a pine cone like our salvation? Our salvation is also a free gift from God that is very beautiful.

Do you know what a pine cone actually is? It is a seed pod. It carries the seeds of the pine tree to make other pine trees. It’s amazing! The pine cone just tumbles around…being its beautiful self…and other pine trees are born because of it. If we are Christians, what can happen if we act like a pine cone? We can share God’s love and make others aware that God loves them.

When we place our pine cones on our Christmas trees, or gift wrap presents using our pine cone, let’s remember that people can see God’s love and reap God’s great reward of salvation by watching us!

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

Candy Cane Jesus

Posted on Updated on

The Legend Of The Candy Cane…

Look at a candy cane and what do you see? Stripes that are red like the blood shed for me. White for my Savior, who is sinless and pure. “J” is for Jesus, my Lord, that’s for sure! Turn it around and a staff you will see- Jesus, my shepherd is coming for me!

Many times during this Christmas season we get caught up in material things. Presents, decorations and food. It’s important to take the time to remember that those things have trully nothing to do with Christmas. The true meaning of Christmas is Christ. And that is exactly what this craft will do.

“She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21

  5. Cut slits along the border of the construction paper at different intervals and angels.
  6. At this point if you like, you can decorate the candy cane with glitter. Allow the enough time for the glitter to dry.
  7. Finally glue the baby onto the candy cane.
