Christmas Treats

I'm a little late, but wanted to share the "treats" that my daughter and I made for her Dance Team and School Classmates.  We made about 60 of these darling hot chocolate reindeer.  Aren't they adorable!?! 

We also had a family project that was sent home from school to complete in December.  A construction paper tree was sent home - the only instructions were to decorate it.

So, we decided to make it look like a real Christmas tree.  I started by backing it with cardboard.  

 I took a small artificial wreath and cut off the branches with a wire cutter.  These were hot glued on to the paper tree in layers.

We took bark off of one of our pine trees and glued it to the trunk. 

 Punched holes through the cardboard and put miniature battery-powered LED lights through the back; added ornaments, tinsel and glitter to the star.

Here's the finished project!
