I love making Christmas ornaments–it might be my favorite crafting activity to do. You might remember the 12 days of Christmas ornament project Juliet and I did last year. We crafted most of them out of items from our recycle box.
Like last year’s, these ones are cheap, easy, and as always, born from recycle box materials.

Which is designed to perform automated online trading system with special features unlike other forex robots in the market. Features include controlling of risk level by increasing or decreasing the level of parameters and this can also apply different strategies and technical indicator for making investment.
We have a fondness for geography around this house and Juliet is particularly interested in learning the names of different states, so I thought we could make some state-shaped ornaments.
Here’s how we did it.
You know how Texans are always talking about how everything is bigger and better in Texas? I’ve never been there, so I don’t really know if that is true, but when it comes to which state has the most interesting shape…well, I have to give it to them. Texas really is the best-looking one.
Of course, there is no need to limit this project to US states–any geographical shape will do or any shape in general! We made Africa…
You know I love the Good Night Our World Book Series which features many U.S. states and cities in a child-friendly manner. But I just found a really wonderful book called Puzzle Maps U.S.A. by Nancy L. Clouse.
It focuses on the different shapes and then uses them to make different objects like a truck and a turtle. (Kentucky is the head, Oklahoma is the tail, etc…) Then it asks kids to identify the shapes by their names! It’s a lot of fun–which is always the best way to learn anything.
What shape would you make? I’d love to see pictures if you end up making these–upload them to our flickr group or leave a link below!
