Color them well and cut out the shape on the cardboard. Now attach a silver or golden thread to each small painting. Your cardboard painting ornaments are ready!
3. Family photo hangings
If you have sparkling paper or velvet paper sheet, stick small pictures of each family member and cut the paper into shape of bells and tie a thread on the top to hang them. These can be used on every Christmas with new pictures.
4. Spoon dolls
Take any colored plastic spoons of small size and paste nice bright colored paper of the shape of a skirt or a long gown from its neck down. See that you make eyes and a smiling face on the spoon. If you have some nice net like paper, stick it to make the doll’s veil. For the hands, you could use paper rolled into thin rolls and stick them on two sides of the doll. You could also tie small bells on the neck to make it tinkle.
