Kid Craft: Sparkly Tree Ornament

This tiny, tinselly tree, studded with sparkling beads, has a cool, retro look.


You will need: Ribbon, toothpick, tacky glue, pushpin, small beads, wine cork, washi tape, and 2 Tinsel pipe cleaners. Cut 4-inch length of pipe cleaner. Wrap 1-1/2 inches around a pencil. Twist to secure, leaving tail untrimmed. Cut five 2-inch lengths of pipe cleaner. Twist each piece around the “trunk.” Trim the branches. Dab glue to end of each branch. Add beads. Mark cork to width of washi tape. Cut with a craft knife (adult’s job.) Wrap cork in tape. Use pushpin to make hole in center. Insert tree in hole.
