Attention: Do not throw out your Christmas tree because….
Today, I am going to share how to make ice ornaments and make it beautiful for the entire winter season, but first a little fun!
The Cat In The Hat came knocking on our door yesterday.
He was smiling ear to ear with that big ‘ol striped hat.
Oh, the things that happen when the kids have a few days off of school.
See, the Phunometer was reading pretty low.
Thing 1 and Thing 2 were creating the mother of all messes…..
…and, frankly, Mom was a bit outta wack.
I was finding myself saying words like Whatchamajigger and Kupkake-inator!
And, honestly threatening to throw them in the Transdimensional Transporterlator!
Do you see where I am going with this?
Winter is for the birds.
Good thing I came up with some celebration of winter projects to keep them busy….
How to make ice ornaments:
- To create these beautiful ice ornaments, we collected all the cookie cutters we could find.
- Filled them with water in a pan.
- Attached waxed thread, then gave them a sprinkle of glitter.
- And let Mother Nature do the rest.
We then embellished our tree with paper snowflake garland….
Slices of sunshine…..
Ruby red cranberry garland.
All displayed on our Christmas tree….
Don’t throw out that Christmas Tree….
…take it outside and enjoy throughout the winter season.
The birds and squirrels will thank you!
This snowflake ice ornament was my favorite of the bunch.
Creating ice ornaments and adorning the outdoor tree certainly kept Thing 1 and Thing 2 busy for the majority of the day.
the sun did not shine.
it was too wet to play.
so we sat in the house
all that cold, cold, wet day.
i sat there with sally.
we sat there, we two.
and i said, ‘how i wish
we had something to do!’
too wet to go out
and too cold to play ball.
so we sat in the house.
we did nothing at all.
so all we could do was to
and we did not like it.
not one little bit.
Hope you enjoyed this fun tutorial!
