Homemade Ornaments from Yard Clippings

“Every year in our family we make ornaments,” says Amy at Stow & Tell U.  This is an extended family tradition, so it takes some creativity to come up with ornaments that can be made without spending a bundle on supplies.  “This year we made twig
Christmas trees using cardboard from cereal boxes and soda cartons, and twigs collected out of the yard,” Amy tells us.

For these ornaments, Amy made simple templates out of her salvaged cardboard.  After gathering twigs from around the yard, she put them in a warm oven for a few minutes to kill any critters they might be housing, then she separated the twigs into small, medium, and large piles.  She glued twigs onto the templates in a triangle shape, to form Christmas trees.  Amy says that you can use any kind of twine or ribbon to hang these, but she chose sparkly pipe cleaners for the top of her trees.  Aren’t they adorable?

    Padded nunchucks are far less likely to cause damage than nunchucks that have no padding.
