At our house, the Christmas bins are out of storage, the tree is in it's place waiting for it's final touches, and Christmas music is drifting through the air. Oh yes! It's looking a lot like Christmas around here. I love this time of the year. My hubby calls me Mrs. Christmas. However, I always wish I could be just a bit more organized to be able to pull off getting all of our Christmas preparations done before Thanksgiving...including decorating and shopping! Oh, maybe one year.
Here's a fun & quick project for your tree...even little hands can help with this one!
I made about 30 of these glittered doves to decorate our church Christmas tree. We added white lights, gold berries, glass pearlized Christmas ball ornaments, draped the tree in white tulle then adorned the top with a beautiful angel. So so pretty!
Make only one or a whole flock...All you need are a few basic supplies and a little time.
- Mod Podge
- Cardboard from empty cereal boxes
- Bird Template (below)
- White craft paint
- White glitter (I used Diamond Dust)
- Eyelets (Optional)
- Silver cording
- Paint brush
- Hole punch
- Download Template for Glittered Dove Ornament
You can get several birds out of one cereal box if you lay it out right. Simply use the provided template to draw the birds on the back of the opened up box and cut out the birds. Paint with white paint; let dry. Apply a coat of Mod Podge over paint and pour on the glitter; gently shake off excess. Allow to dry then punch hole, add eyelet (not necessary) and cording. Done! How easy is that?
Just another way to use Mod Podge along with empty cereal boxes!
