Creative Kids Moment: Toddler Xmas Crafts V

Pinecone ornamentsSequined Pinecones

C had collected lots of pinecones in the fall which inspired this craft.  It’s super easy and the end result is so pretty.

C painted them white and then sprinkled them with sequins while the paint was still wet.  To help secure the sequins I would suggest painting Modge Podge on them after the paint has dried.

They are pretty on their own as a decoration but you could thread a loop to the top of the pinecone to make an ornament of them.

Christmas craft 8Christmas Votives

These are just like our Hanukkah ones.

We put a sticker on a baby food jar and then painted the jar.  Once it was dry, we pealed off the sticker.  To finish, we added jewel stickers and tied a ribbon around the top.  Pop in a tea light and you are done!

Christmas craft 9Clothes Peg Trees

To make these fun trees, I cut out tree shapes (Dr. Seuss style or otherwise) and clipped a clothes peg on the bottom.  Then C painted them with glue and added buttons or sequins (though stickers would also work).  After they dried, C painted them again with Modge Podge (can’t have little things falling off with a baby in the house!)

Christmas Craft 9.1Because of the clothes peg, they can stand up on the mantle.  However, they fit on top of some of our photo frames and I liked the look of them best like that.

That’s the last of our Christmas crafts for this year.  Happy Crafting to all!

    Love your ideas. You’re so good at finding ways to take toddler “art” and turning it into something that they can really be proud of!
