Ornaments for the Christmas tree
Silver bells: the cups of an egg carton cut. Each glass is wrapped in paper albal. A thread is sewn at the base of the glass with the help of a glass needle to hang upside down to look like a bell.
Bright stars: one star is drawn and cut cardboard. It may be a big star to put on top, and several small to decorate the rest of the tree. The yellow star painted. Once the paint is dry, another star within this glue is drawn, then gold or silver glitter spreads around the entire star. It is left for a few minutes for the glue to dry. Star is then stirred to release the glitter has not fallen over the tail (is advisable to do this on a piece of paper to be reused in other adornment glitter). There will be a pretty star glitter in the yellow star. A hole is made to put the thread to hang it on the tree.
Golden pineapples: Go to an area of pine trees to stroll and pick up a pineapple. Once home, use a spray paint color gold (or silver) and cover with paint pineapples (is convenient to do so on newsprint to avoid staining). Pineapples can be hung on the tree or if they are very large, used for a centerpiece or a corner.
Snowmen: white cardboard, cotton and oil is required. A snowman figurines trimmed, including hat (ie, big ball, small ball and hat shape all together). the hat is painted black and a hole for the thread is made. The rest of the doll is covered with glue, and small pieces of cotton sticks around. Then do the same thing on the other side, so you have cotton and black hat in both.
