Paint, Glitter, Pom-Poms and Fabulous!






Martha Steward might cringe at the sight of our hand painted (by both children and parent alike)Christmas ornaments, but there is nothing better then a day of holiday creation and cheer. What a great day...Everyone had a blast making their beautiful Christmas ornaments. I have always been a fan of the handmade item and they always make the most thoughtful amusing gifts. An ornament painting afternoon is so easy to organize and not expensive at all! Really all it took was a trip to Rite aid or Target. Colorful pom-poms, paint, glitter, glue, ribbons, feathers and plastic Christmas balls and viola...some snacks for the children and cheer for the grown-ups and you have a great great day!
