Easy Glitter Christmas Ornaments

We are really into Christmas and literally change the decorations in pretty much every part of our home for Christmas.  We have about five Christmas trees of different sizes around the house.  We even take down artwork and put up Christmas decorations instead.  I’d probably change out pieces of furniture too if Mathlete wouldn’t give me a hard time about it!  This year, I decided to add a little Christmas sparkle to our paper mache tree and made some super easy glitter Christmas ornaments to hang on it.

Wow, December has certainly come in quickly! I can hardly believe we are close to a week before Christmas.  We took a trip to New York City earlier in the month and, ever since then, it feels like days go by in twos.  My head is totally spinning with the thought of wrapping presents, cooking Christmas dinner and entertaining my kids during their winter break!  I went searching for some craft ideas to do with my daughter while she was home and ended up putting together a collection of 50 fantastic Christmas and Winter craft ideas.  They aren’t all kid friendly but they are all awesome and worth checking out!
