Just a Few Glittery Paper Ornaments

Our Christmas tree fell over twice in the span of 24 hours, and we have officially blamed it on a sort of spongy-feeling trunk. If there’s a term for that, I’m not sure what it is.

In lieu of running out to buy a bunch of new ornaments to replace the dead soldiers, we got all crafty.

Glittery Paper Ornaments are a rather timely project right about now, and easy enough to tackle even if you are pressed for time, so break out the paper, glitter glue, hole punch and yarn, and you’ve got a pretty awesome project for the wee ones.
