One of my favorite things about Christmas is decorating my Christmas tree!! For Pages to Projects this month I picked the book, Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree. This is a cute story about a tree that is big enough for the whole neighborhood, including the animals! All you have to do is take a little off the top!
For our project we made Christmas banners out of Muslin cloth. Only thing that was required was it had to have a Christmas tree on it!
I pre-cut the banners our of the Muslin cloth, I bought 3 yards for 16 banners.
The kiddos dyed the cloth with liquid watercolors in red and green. After they dried a tad, we then used cookie cutters dipped in paint to add designs to the cloth. Of course Christmas is not complete without glitter, so glitter paint was added! The kiddos then strung jewelry wire with bead and colored pasta to add a hanger to the banner and Voila!
Join us for our next Pages to Projects in January!!
