Bed Spring Christmas Tree Craft

Bed Spring Christmas Craft www.daniellesplace.com

What you will need:

Old rusted bed springs

Rusted Lid

Thin wire

Jute Ribbon

Brown bag

Large Star Punch

Christmas Spray with with wired Beads and Glitter balls

Green Yarn

 

How to Make the Bed Spring Tree:

1. Two different types of bed springs were used to make this tree. The outer spring is larger and bigger and comes from a better quality box spring. The inside spring is thinner and is more of a cone shape instead of the triangular shape of the larger, outside spring.

2. Attach the thinner spring to the inside of the larger spring with thin wire so that it is sticking out the bottom of the larger spring a few inches.

3. Pull apart the spray separating the little wired balls. Attach the balls to the large bed spring by winding the wires around the bed spring. If you don't want to use a spray, you can just string beads onto wires and then attach them to the spring.

4. Cut short lengths of green yarn and tie them to the spring covering the wires that you wound around the spring.

5. Cut a star shape from a brown bag using a star punch and then use a thin wire to attach it to the large spring.

6. To finish glue the jute ribbon around the edge of the lid and place the bed spring tree in the lid.

- Puzzle Piece Christmas Ornament Craft for Kids

Snowman puzzle piece Christmas Ornament Craft www.daniellesplace.comWhat you will need:

Christmas Pictures from Christmas Cards, Wrapping Paper, or magazines

Elmer's Rubber Cement or Scotch Craft Stick Glue

Scissors

Exacto knife

pencil

puzzle pieces from old children's puzzles

Decorative Items

Round Ribbon

Low Temperature Glue Gun

 

How to Make the Puzzle Piece Ornament:

1. Find Christmas pictures that will fit on the puzzle pieces. The entire picture doesn't have to fit on the puzzle piece completely, just the important parts of the picture.

2. Lightly trace around the puzzle piece to make sure the picture will be in the correct place and it will look okay on the piece.

snowman puzzle piece Christmas ornament craft www.daniellesplace.com3. Cut around the traced outline of the puzzle piece on the picture leaving about 1/2" extra paper around the outline.

4. Glue the picture onto the puzzle piece. If you are using gift wrap, use the craft stick glue instead of the rubber cement. The paper is too thin for rubber cement. The rubber cement will seep through the picture. If you are using pictures from cards or thicker paper, you can use the rubber cement.

5. After the glue dries turn the puzzle piece over to the back and cut away the extra paper. Use regular scissors to cut away the straight edges. Use an Exacto knife to cut away the curved edges.

6. Glue ribbon around the edge of the puzzle piece using a low temperature glue gun. Leave two inches of ribbon at the top of the puzzle piece at the beginning and end of the ribbon. Tie the ribbon ends together to make a loop.

7. To finish glue decorative items the ornament.
