hi all I am meant to be helping run a Christmas craft day for about200 girls I was wondering if any of you have any ideas they have to do 4 crafts in the day while they are there , each craft can not cost any more then an English £1. we have thought about decorating a glass with vinyl as this only works out at 50p for a glass and then each wont be much for the vinyl .
I have just seen someone has made Christmas tee light s as Santa's and snowmen are these easy to make and is it just card cut out with a small hole for the nose . any help or suggestions would be great .

How about snowman or Santa candy bar wrappers?

Here is a google image search - so you can get some ideas and customize them to your group...

I made this reindeer a few years ago... it could be as simple or complex as you wanted to make it.. you could use any face you wanted . Also, check out "Baby Cups" in the craft forum - they could easily be converted to Christmas themes.

My kids, and their friends, always liked making these...I call them Elf Yourself tags.



I would cut out the pieces for them to assemble and they would use a circle punch to punch out their face from a photo.

Another idea is to let them assemble and create their own gift boxes. This box is from Sweet Tooth Boxes cut at 11.5" (this one holds a round Christmas ornament that I used vinyl on...if you want the crafts to tie together).

If you used a solid color cardstock they could stamp on it first to decorate it or have some inexpensive embellishments available. Or...even markers and pens and let them be creative.

These coasters are something I've been doing for a while and they are SUPER EASY!
Mod podge and clear acrylic spray.
Cost about $1.00 for a set of four

This is not Christmas but could easily be changed to a Christmas theme. These are Thanksgiving place mats that I made for my granddaughter and great niece for their dinner table. You could select a Christmas theme(s) and have all the cuts done and let the girls put together their own place mat. The mat itself is a solid color piece of card stock and a printed paper cut down and folded in half lengthwise and glued to each end of the solid by sandwiching the solid into the open end fold about a 1/4" or so and gluing on both sides. I think I may have cut the solid to an 8"x8" and the two end pieces maybe 6x8 and then folded to make 3x8. Can't remember for sure the sizes. I got this idea from something similar I had seen but don't remember where but on the other side of the mat was a tick tac toe game and they had made game pieces from similar holiday images maybe glued to same cut chip board pieces.

what about Christmas place mats. They are very inexpensive to make. And they can be laminated if the parents want them for ever.

I have made them with my kids before. You can use old Christmas cards or Christmas pictures. They could even bring in Christmas pictures.

Use poster board cut in rectangles and let them have fun decorating them.

That's it!
I used travertene tiles, that I got at Lowes $4.50 for a box of 9. You do need to wash them, as there is dust on them. Also I search each box to make sure that they are somewhat smooth and not too many 'imperfections'.
I purchased cocktail napkins at the Christmas Tree Store for $1.00 (not sure how many in each package) and then yes, used mod podge.
Once dry I added a clear coat.

I make cinnamon apple sauce ornaments...

Ingredients Makes 12 to 15 ornaments.

Step 1: 3/4 cup applesauce 1 bottle (4.12 ounces)Cinnamon, Ground

Step 2: Cookie cutters Drinking straw Colorful ribbon

Preheat oven to 200°F. Mix applesauce and cinnamon in small bowl until a smooth ball of dough is formed. (You may need use your hands to incorporate all of the cinnamon.) Using about 1/4 of the dough at a time, roll dough to 1/4-inch to 1/3-inch thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap. Peel off top sheet of plastic wrap. Cut dough into desired shapes with 2- to 3-inch cookie cutters. Make a hole at top of ornament with drinking straw or skewer. Place ornaments on baking sheet. Bake 2 1/2 hours. Cool ornaments on wire rack. (Or, to dry ornaments at room temperature, carefully place them on wire rack. Let stand 1 to 2 days or until thoroughly dry, turning occasionally.). Insert ribbon through holes and tie to hang. Decorate with opaque paint markers, found in arts and crafts stores, if desired.

I've also done the same recipe and then just let the ornaments air dry overnight. They are pet & child safe ( if they eat them...they just taste horrible lol... just ask my nephew!)
