So, our previous plans for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day had been canceled. In short, we are grounded till he gets well. In order to keep the spirit of Christmas alive, I got the kids down to making MistleToe for this Christmas.
Things needed for the 2 types of Kids Crafts – Christmas Mistletoe:
Double sided tape
Christmas Hanging Ornaments
Step 1: Open up the Newspapers. Crush 3 pieces horizontally like what Keatkeat did below.
Step 2: Twist the 3 pieces of Newspaper together as shown below.
Step 3: Form a circle by joining the two ends together with Adhesive tape.
Step 4: Cut the Crepe Paper, approximately 1.5 to 2 inches wide, as shown below.
Step 5: Unfold the strip of Crepe Paper, stick one end to the Newspaper Loop and start wrapping the Newspaper as shown below.
Step 6: When the loop is fully covered with the Crepe Paper, stick the other end of the Crepe Paper with Adhesive tape.
Step 7: Its Ribbon time! Fold the Ribbon into half and loop it over the mistletoe as shown below.
Step 8: Wrap the Ribbon round the mistletoe with spaces in between. Then tie the ends together so that you can hang it. See pictures below.
Step 9: Grab a Christmas hanging ornament and tie it to the top of the mistletoe. Ta-Daa. Simple Christmas Misletoe done.
If you think this is too difficult for your child. You may want to try an even simpler Christmas Mistletoe.
Repeat the above Step 1 to Step 6. But this time, instead of using Crepe Paper, use Christmas Garland.
Get the kids to cut out pictures that symbolizes Christmas. Then use the Double-sided Adhesive tape to stick the pictures onto the Garland.
After which, repeat Step 9 above and there you have it, a Fluffy Christmas Mistletoe.
Have a Blessed Christmas Everyone! *Grin*
