I am trying so hard as a working mother to make sure I still make time for crafts with my kids. It is something they enjoy...and I do too. I have started to enjoy paint chip samples because they are free and so many wonderful ideas out there to use them. I have seen several other sites use paint chips as Christmas trees but I do not remember which one I saw first so I am not sure who deserves the credit for it. SORRY!
With our Christmas tree ornament we used buttons and ribbon. There are several ways to add fun to your tree such as glitter, stickers, stamps, crayons, markers, and so much more.
I also wrote my kids name on the back and the year because I hope to pull it out every year and reminisce over them. :)
