You CAN Make Easy Christmas Ornaments
Crafts and Decorations

Make simple Christmas ornaments crafts and other decorations with things you already have on hand! Take, for example, these cute paper plate Santas that will add whimsy to your tree. (Note: This craft was adapted from Bettter Homes and Gardens. You can find a similar craft in "Better Homes and Gardens Big Book of Kids Crafts")

The idea is so easy and makes a great activity for kids of all ages. We made two, but are already planning to make more! Take a look at our easy instructions and material list!
