Too Late for Christmas Craft Idea

Even though Christmas is over - I decided to share this craft idea because it really could be done any time of the year. And we were so pleased with the results.

I bought this Martha Stewart Glittered Bird Note Card Kit thinking that the kids could make them for Christmas cards for their teachers or grandparents. I kept putting it off and putting it off (mainly because I didn't want to face the glitter mess) until just a few days before Christmas. Well it didn't turn out to be that messy after all and the birds turned out so beautiful that we decided to turn them into Christmas tree ornaments instead.

The best part about it was that no glue was involved. The birds already had adhesive and the kids just had to pour the glitter over the different sections. The glitter was very fine and stuck to their hands but we kept it contained pretty well.










I bought my kit at Big Lots but I believe they sell it at Walmart so if you are looking for a fun and beautiful craft project to do with your kids - this is a great idea. I think the note cards would have turned out really great too!

This seems like a project that is so appropriate for your family, too, bird watchers and all. They look beautiful.

Beautiful. Although I have an aversion to kids and glitter combos, this may be a project worth doing. They look so nice.

Those do look wonderful! The ornaments turned out to be a great idea. I think that after the work that I'd have wanted to keep them and enjoy them in the years to come.

Those photos are magazine worthy. You should put together a portfolio.
