12 days of christmas homemade ornament (8 maids-a-milking)

December 9, 2009

[illustration from Brian Wildsmith's 12 Days of Christmas]

Our 8 maids-a-milking ornaments turned out really well today. I saved up 8 plastic bottle caps (some are from the orange juice cartons and some are from water bottles.)

I hot glued ribbon to the caps to make handles for our "milk buckets."

Juliet gathered 8 cotton balls from our bathroom cabinet and then she set to work gluing the cotton balls into the buckets to make the "milk".

She did this all on her own and had a great time doing it. Placing milk in a bucket is very serious business.

With the buckets filled, we lined them up, and carried them over to our tree.

I enjoyed this one because it was so simple, yet still a lot of fun to work on together. Do you have any other ideas for using old bottle caps?
