Definitely need to re-think using the straight pins for this project and just pull out the E6000 for more than just attaching the super fun and colorful baker's twine from The Twinery.
What a darling project, pinned to my art projects Pinterest board, but our puffy, fluffy balls keep coming out...operator error I'm sure. The girls always call our crafting time "art projects" - hence the board name. And they always, ALWAYS, want to do art projects.
And even though the ornaments aren't perfect, the Pro's of this art project are:
- that the girls had an absolute blast prowling the aisles of Hobby Lobby with me looking for styrofoam and puffy balls and even some multi-colored sequins
- they had major fun choosing the colors and position of puffy, fluffy balls
- they had minor disagreements with each other about who gets what particular color
- they always find a way to make me smile in the midst of their arguments when I question why I even brought out all the supplies in the first place when one of them complements the other on their design, color choice or just overall goodness in handing out positive vibes
What? Sequins? Oh, yeah...rumor has it that the sequins and extra puffy, fluffy balls will appear on a headband made for Mommy fashioned after one seen in the Fancy Nancy book Isabella checked out of the school Library. Can't wait to share the photo of me modeling said headband on Christmas morning...ahem.
I'm thinking these ornaments are next on our list!
