Simple Kid Made Decorations

Molly was troubled by a few ‘gaps’ on the Christmas Tree on Sunday SO we had to make some more decorations, and quickly. What follows is a pinterest inspired story of a humble little toilet roll core that became a star – a sort of Ugly Duckling-esque sweet tale :)

Once Upon A Time there was a little toilet roll, which when cut into slices and stapled together on each side became a star. A quick squirt of gold and silver spray added some slimmer and shine, over which a little craft glue was dabbed and glitter sprinkled to create the shiniest star the tree had ever seen. The silver star seemed to need a little extra touch of bling so after some humming, hawing and chin scratching white sticker dots joyfully provided the perfect finishing touch.

and the moral of the story is….. glitter rocks!!!
