12 days of christmas homemade ornament (five gold rings)

December 6, 2009

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...five gold rings!

This is Juliet's favorite part of the song. In fact, she usually just goes around singing this line over and over again. So, I was excited for her to make these ornaments today.

These were really simple--perfect after four days of complicated bird ornaments. I just cut a paper towel roll into five rings.

I set out some glitter glue and some jewels for Juliet to use to decorate the rings.

She jumped right into this task with renewed vigor. (It had waned over the past few days.) Glitter was smeared everywhere and jewels were picked out to make just the right looks.

We let the glue dry and then I tied some ribbon on to make the hangers.

We hung them on the tree and admired our work.

My goal is to make these projects a little more "preschooler friendly"--no more crazy juice bottle bird cages!!
