We enjoy making our own Christmas tree ornaments every year and this year is no exception. We used our yarn stash to make these colorful and fun ornaments. Because we used the glue gun, this is a wonderful project for older children or for adults and children to work on together!

Start with:

  • Paper Cups
  • Glue/Glue Gun
  • Yarn
  • Twine
  • Pencil
  • Scissors

Create it!

Step 1: With pencil, punch two holes on the bottom of one paper cup.

Step 2: Cut a piece of twine, loop in the two holes and tie a knot to secure.

Step 3: Glue second cup, rim to rim, to the first cup.

Step 4: Place glue on the cup and wind string around it.

With so many bright colors and interesting textures, there are so many fun ways to decorate these ornaments. Perfect for those after school playdates or even for a family craft night!
