* kids ornament crafts

Posted on November 25th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Holiday.

My niece and I had some quality crafting time over Thanksgiving. What we did:

  1. pipe cleaner candy cane
  2. ornaments made from drawings. She drew a picture on fabric with some markers, which I sewed to a backing. Turn inside out, stuff, then sew the hole and add a hanger. My mom still has a couple like this that I made when I was little.
  3. embroidery. She drew a picture on fabric with water-cleanup markers, then outlined it with a running stitch. The star is her first one! The dog’s still in progress. Once it’s done, you can rinse out the marker so just the embroidery remains.

    what a fantastic idea! I will have to try this with Emily (she is 2 and is still in the scribbling phase but I can’t wait for her cute little drawing stage)!

    Wow — Incredible — Wish I could do that…
    Your niece has real talent — I can see the relation.
