Day two of our advent experience Truth in the Tinsel is here. Today's ornament was a crown made from an old paper tube.
I prep the materials for the craft the night before and have it waiting in a basket on the kitchen table. (I recently bought a new package of martha stewart glitter. That stuff is awesome because it is so fine--makes crafts look extra pretty.)
24 colors to choose from....my sweet girl chooses two shades of pink. ( I cut the top off of a cereal box and used it as a tray to contain the glitter.
She glued on some gems and it was ready for the tree. (Which we just put up last night!)
Free crafting tip: If you spray your glitter projects with some hairspray, it will lock it in and keep it from falling off all over your house. Not completely, but it does seal it in fairly well.
If you'd like to join in the advent experience Truth in the Tinsel--it's not too late! There are several plans to choose from--you don't have to do all the crafts or even do one every day. You can start today and do the first two or just skip them. It's very flexible.
My friend Amanda has created such a great community on her facebook page--people all over the world are uploading pictures of their kids' ornaments and sharing about their experience. It's awesome. I hope you'll join in!
