Sparkly Homemade Christmas Ornaments {little mess and recycling cards}


I hope you all had a blessed Christmas Day! Our family had a lovely day with lots of sweets!
I'm sure a few of my upcoming posts may seem a little out dated for those of you who don't celebrate Christmas past the 25th of December, but here at our house we celebrate all 12 days of Christmas. We create a huge amount of our Christmas crafts and treats, from Christmas-eve until the Epiphany (Jan. 6). So, if these seem out dated because you are packing away the tree, feel free to just bookmark or pin these posts for next year!
On Christmas Eve, my kids and I made a few homemade ornaments from glitter foam and old Christmas cards (from last year). 
It was very easy and fun for the kids and we loved the sparkly glitter foam, which made very little mess. The kids gave a few away to relatives on Christmas and hung the rest on our Christmas tree. 
To make these ornaments we glued a few religious pictures on glitter foam using regular white glue.  You may need to hold the picture down for a minute if it wants to curl. Then we used silver glitter glue to trim the edges of the pictures. After that we added a few glitter star shapes to the edges. The stars we used were similar to these. After the glitter glue dried we poking a hook through the foam and hung them on our tree! 

They turned out so nice and sparkly, and they were very easy to make!
So, keep those old cards and make a few ornaments next year!
Please, pray for me I'm always in need of prayers.

  2. We do this same craft but with construction paper and glitter. Next year, I'll have to get some glitter paper instead. It won't be as messy!

    1. Brenna, Glitter is so nice at Christmas time isn't it?! This is much less messy than regular glitter, but I enjoy a good mess from time to time! :-) Blessings to you and your family.
