Today's Guest: Brenda from Pebbles In My Pocket

 Christmas Tree Ornaments


Instructions:
-Cut a triangle from printed paper or cardstock. Score and fold in half. Even up both sides with each other.
-Cut / score two more triangles, the same size. The one shown is approximately 3" x 4", but they can easily be smaller or larger.
-Add some white craft glue to half of a folded back (right side is folded inward) and place another folded half on top.
-Once all three are glued together, add white crafting glue to remaining side and down the middle.
-Add a strung silver bell, with red and white bakers twine in the middle as shown and press the two remaining sides together.
-Tie a knot to hang. Trim.

These simple trees can be made from your favorite printed papers. I love to make them from plain cardstock and let my grandkids decorate them with glitter, buttons, sequins and such... creating a memorable keepsake. This would be a great project for a classroom, especially if they were pre-done and ready to decorate with small hands. 

Enjoy! Brenda Birrell

These can be purchased as kits or even premade at Pebbles in my Pocket.
