Easy Christmas craft project

I usually give my children an ornament every Christmas and this year I decided to bypass Hallmark (sorry Hallmark!) and get creative.  A good friend and I got together with all sorts of crafty bits and pieces and this is what I came up with :)

Your kids might enjoy this project too, especially those who are just learning how to read and spell.  It's quick and easy (my favorite words!).  All you need are Scrabble tiles (watch at garage sales and thrift stores for used Scrabble games), ribbon, glue (or use a glue gun if you don't have really small kids) and any tiny Christmas decorations to embellish the little word ornaments (bells, buttons, sprigs of greenery, glitter, etc.)

You can't see it very well but the ribbon is looped at the top for hanging.

These words are glued onto a thin piece of cardboard and wrapped with a ribbon.
Have fun with the kids!


  1. I think the ornament for your favorite daughter turned out really well....she'll like it a lot! ;-) But seriously, this is an extremely cute idea!
