Christmas Crafts Workshop
Paper and Ink Arts
Sat, Dec 14 10:00 am

All supplies are included. Pre-registration is unavailable because this class is a drop-in format where payment is given in-store at the end of the class. Five projects will be presented at $5 a piece, and students/parents can decide how many they would like to make. Gingerbread House Ornaments: For this craft, students will use paint markers and acrylic paint to design a gingerbread house on a miniature terra cotta pot. Once they're finished painting, students will choose a piece of Christmas-themed ribbon and thread it through the pot's waterspout, tying a knot at the end to keep it in place. Images of gingerbread houses will be provided for inspiration. Scrap Ribbon Tree Ornaments: For this craft, students will choose 13-16 Christmas colored/pattern scraps of ribbon and tie them into large, loose knots onto a small stick which serves as the tree's trunk. Students will trim the ribbon into a Christmas tree shape, making the pieces at the top smallest and the pieces at the bottom largest. Students will tie a piece of twine to the tip of the stick for hanging, as well as glue a golden star to top the tree. Snowflake Quilts: For this craft, students will choose eight 4"x4" pieces and one 8.5"x8.5" piece of colored construction paper. Students will take one 4”x4” paper and fold it into a triangle 3 times. Then, students will cut shapes along all three sides of the folded triangle and unfold to find a beautiful snowflake pattern. Repeat with 3 more sheets of 4”x4” paper. Students will glue their uncut 4”x4” paper onto the 8.5"x8.5" paper, leaving a half-inch border along every edge. Finally, students will glue their snowflake paper on top of each solid square, creating a snowflake-inspired paper quilt. Pop Up Christmas Tree Card: For this craft, students will choose one sheet of A5 cardstock in their desired color and fold it into a card. Students will then accordion-fold an A5 sheet of green construction paper, flatten the fan into a strip, and cut it into five pieces: 1 cm, 2 cm, 3 cm, 4 cm, and 5 cm. Students will glue these strips along the centerfold of the interior of the card from smallest to biggest, leaving space at the top and bottom. A golden star will be glued to the top and brown strip of construction paper for a trunk at the bottom. When opened, the accordion-folded paper will resemble a 3-D Christmas tree. Students will be encouraged to decorate the rest of their card as they wish. Snowman Puppets: For this craft, students will glue three white cotton pads to a popsicle stick, leaving the stick poking out at the end to hold. Students will cut a hat, eyes, nose, scarf, and any other desired accessories out of multicolored felt, gluing them to the cotton pads in their proper place. Miniature pom poms will be provided for buttons, as well as glitter for some sparkle. This craft can easily be used as a puppet, bookmark, or even an ornament if string is applied.
