Bonus Blog: Kiddo DIY Ornament Doorhangers

Ornament Doorhanger header

Bonus Blog Day… yeah!… plus a DIY project for the kiddos to boot.

This project is quick easy and great way to use  some of your scrap wrapping paper that isn’t large enough to wrap anything except a gift for a Smurf. It took me all of 10 min to get this project prepped for the kiddos and it kept them entertained for well over an hour. Thus allowing me time to catch up on my blogging, win win for everyone.

DIY Scarp Paper Doorhanger Ornaments

What you’ll need:

  • Cardboard
  • Yarn
  • Glue (I used Modge Podge and paint brushes)
  • Scrap wrapping paper
  • Scissors
  • Box cutter
  • Tape

Prep:

Take cardboard (I used a box) and trace a big circle on it using an upside down bowl. This cardboard box gave me 4 ornaments.

Use a box cutter and carefully cut out the ornament. Be careful not to lose a digit or slice up your carpet. I put another box underneath it to protect the floor. ManFriend would be none to happy coming home to sliced and diced carpet.

Cut out the ornament circle. Don’t worry if it has some blemishes or imperfections. The decorations will cover up the yucky parts.

Tape yarn in a loop to the back of the ornaments. This will serve as the hanger part of the Ornament Doorhanger.I used green yarn because that’s what I had, but any sort of yarn, twine, ribbon, or string would work great.

Take your scraps of wrapping paper and chop’em up. I hacked them into different shapes without really thinking about it. Then I  put them in a basket so the kiddos could reach them easily. I had several scraps and I also cut a few strips from other rolls of wrapping paper. This is a collection of scrap pieces from about 15 rolls of wrapping paper. If you read my post tomorrow, you’ll find out that I have a major wrapping paper problem.

Here is how I set up the crafting corner. I used Modge Podge Glue with little paintbrushes, giving each kiddo their own little “glue bucket”. Since these are older kiddos I gave them scissors so they can cut their own shapes, but you can skip that part if you have younger kiddos at home.

Try this project with your kiddos. They will have a blast and walk away with a beautiful piece of Christmas art to hang on their bedroom door. Let me know how this project works in your home.

As always, until next time,

Keep it Sassy & Classy,

B's Sig
