Martha Stewart knows glitter. This year we made these stars out of mat board (from the December 2011 Martha Stewart Living).
(We have to squeeze craft-time in where we can... sometimes it happens to be between pajamas and getting dressed.)
I spray painted them silver before we mod-podged and glittered.
The big silver one is going to be a tree topper as soon as I get some wire on it.
Last year we baked salt dough ornaments and decorated them with my mom and sisters. Fragile, but very special! I used the recipe for the Noah's Ark cookie cutter ornaments from the December 2010 issue.
