Brown Paper Bag
Cut the construction paper into shapes for the Christmas craft, and place the construction paper between two pieces of wax paper. Put a piece of brown paper bag underneath, and over, the wax paper. Iron over the brown paper bag until the two pieces of wax paper are ironed together.
If you get any wax in your carpet, it is easy to get it out. Place a piece of paper towel over the wax area, and iron the paper towel until all of the wax is removed from the carpet.
The ornaments work best if the wax paper gets to touch in several places. If you have a large circle (4 inches wide), it is not likely to stick well together or look very good. However, if you cut a little circle in the middle (1 inch) the wax will touch in the middle, and the Christmas ornament will look much better.
Construction Paper Shapes
The construction paper can be cut in many different shapes. Little circles in different colors look really pretty under the wax paper.
There are little paper cutters that cut tiny shapes with one push. Children love to play with these, and they make cute confetti to place in the middle of the wax paper.
You can draw more complex shapes, such as figures, on the paper and have the children cut them out.
Funny scissors (that cut weird patters) are also a fun way to make shapes with the construction paper.
The possibilities are endless with this fun Christmas craft. This craft allows everyone to use their creativity and design skills to celebrate the season.
