Recycled Art Ornaments

Have you got a stack of beautiful kiddo art? Just sitting there? You cant bring yourself to throw it away. And the walls and the fridge have no hanging space left. Mmmm, what to do? I know, lets make ornaments!

You will need:

  • Kiddo Art
  • Twine
  • Glitter
  • Beads
  • Scissors 
  • Pipecleaners 
  • Felt or card

Fan Angels

How cute are these? And so simple.

  1. You will need to cut a square about 10cm x 10cm and a rectangle about 25cm x 15cm  from your art work. 
  2. Fold them into paper fans making sure the art work is face up. Make sure you fan the rectangle the long way. 
  3. Fold the rectangle in half. See below.
  4. Add glitter baby!

   5.Secure both together using your twine, tripple knot to make a head. Glue theskirt         fan togther.

Recycled Art Baubles

  1. Take a pipecleaner and lace with beads.
  2.  Take another and repeat the process. 
  3. Loop them over each other to create a heart and secure.
  4.  Wrap your twine around so you can not see the joint and can hang them.
  5.  Take your art cut a circle, I used a drinking glass to trace. Cut the same size circle from your card or felt glue to your art as backing. 
  6. Punch a hole. Attach your beads as above!

Super simple! And oh so pretty.
