Getting Crafty – Tissue Paper Glimmers
This is a quick and easy craft with an older child and a nice messy one with a younger one!
Draw the shape you want on a piece of tissue paper, lay the tissue paper on some cling film.
Paint along the outline with PVA glue and then stick a length of wool to the glue (I know this is not the same outline as above, we did a few shapes!). Make a loop at the top if you want to hang your decoration up. Brush PVA inside the woollen boundary line.
Arrange lengths of thread (we used silver) inside your shape, crisscrossing them to give your shape structure. Press them into the glue and leave the ends dangling.
Brush on more glue and liberally sprinkle with glitter. We used the snow glitter from the Early Learning Centre as well as some of the basic glittery stuff.
Leave to dry completely then cut out.
They look great dangling in front of fairy lights
Or dangling where they can catch the sun!
We adapted this idea from Sparkly Things to Make and Do (Usborne Activities)
