This is a very simple activity that is not time consuming and recycles things that are just lying around the house.
You will need:
- Jar lids, cleaned and stickers removed
- Strong craft glue or hot glue gun
- Last year’s Christmas cards
- Small amounts of ribbon, lace and other trims
What to do:
Start by cutting a piece of ribbon or string and gluing it to the lid. This is how the ornament will hang on the tree.
Glue lace as a border around the outside of the lid.
Cut a round image from a Christmas card and glue it into the centre.
To hide any rough edges glue a strip of trim around the picture.
Leave to dry.
Hang on your tree!
