Using any stiffer paper make a cone and tape or staple shut. Use yarn and put long pieces into a bowl and soak it so the yard becomes saturated. Keep wrapping over and over making sure to cross layer to give the tree strength. Let dry on cone. Glue on little pearls and other things you would like on it. Glue on a star. Let dry on cone so it does not lose its shape. Gently loosen and then remove cone. You have a really cool and very very cheap decoration that costs little to nothing.
Love that this is just stark black and white in design. What could have made this cake even better?….. what about a Darth Vader mask under the Storm Troopers?
I love the stained glass (candy) window added to this gingerbread house. This one has a clean design leaving the corners undecorated as well as the edges of the gingerbread men. The stained glass is made from melting a shiny candy. Melt the candy, pour onto wax paper to let it go flat and press same cookie cutter (cover with Crisco type product) that was used in the gingerbread itself and cut a shape out. You can also lay the gingerbread with the cutout directly onto wax paper and pout the melted candy into the cutout until filled. Make sure this is poured a little thick – otherwise it will be very fragile. This could be a school, church or house.
Simple project and kids can help or make theri own. Cut out Happy New Years from drawing or print a desired graphic printed from the internet. Put a hole punch in the botton of each “point” . Then we need to make little designs to hng from these holes. Here we chose blow horns, stars and party hats. Deorate with embellishments. Attach with yarn or string.
