3 easy DIY ornaments for kids


Brendan: THIS MORNING IN FAMILY TIME, IT IS TIME TO DECK THE HALLS WITH D.I.Y. ORNAMENTS AND WHO BETTER TO JOIN US THAT OUR FRIEND COURTNEY. GOOD MORNING. GOOD MORNING. Brendan: ALWAYS NICE TO SEE YOU. BEFORE WE GET INTO ANY OF THE CRAFTS THAT I KNOW I’LL EXCEL AT HELPING YOU CREATE, LET’S TALK ABOUT WHY THIS IS SO IMPORTANT TO GET THE KIDS INTERACTIVE, TO SORT OF HAVE SOME FUN WITH THEM. YEAH. YOU KNOW, ORNAMENTS ARE MY FAVORITE THING I THINK ABOUT CHRISTMAS BECAUSE ALL OF THEM ON THE TREE HAVE A STORY BEHIND THEM. YOU REMEMBER WHERE YOU BOUGHT THEM AND WHEN YOU NEED THEM. WHEN THEY’RE LITTLE, THEY WANT A PART OF THAT. YOU CAN SEE HOW GREAT YOU’VE GOTTEN THROUGH THE YEARS. Brendan: ABSOLUTELY. I HAVE A GOOD STORY ABOUT A SIMILAR ONE ON OUR TREE AT MOM’S HOUSE. THE COOKIE CUTER POMPOM ORNAMENTS. MY NAME IS LONG, BUT YOU WANT TO USE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE AT HOME. I DO HAVE COOKIE CUTTERS AND THOUGHT IT COULD BE FUN TO DO POMPOM ORNAMENTS. MY 3-YEAR-OLD DID THE TREE AND THE CANDY CANES. IF YOU WANT TO TRY. THIS IS — Brendan: A 3-YEAR-OLD HAS ALREADY MASTERED THIS. YEAH. ON CARD BOARD. CEREAL BOXES, SNACKS, WHATEVER WITH. IF YOU WANT TO DO THE CANDY CANE, YOU CAN TRACE THE INSIDE OR AROUND IT. Brendan: I’M GOING TO GO AROUND IT. ACTUALLY INSIDE. TOUGH DECISION. YOU ARE FILLING THEM WITH POMPOMS IF YOU HAVE THEM. AND BASICALLY THE ONLY THING THE PARENT WILL NEED TO DO IS CUT IT OUT. BUT IF THEY’RE OLDER, LIKE MY 7-YEAR-OLD DID IT HERSELF. Brendan: AND SUPERVISED THE PROCEEDINGS. YOU ARE LIKE THE PARENT OF THE SEGMENT RIGHT NOW. IT IS ONE ROLE THAT I KNOW I DO REALLY WELL. THERE YOU GO. Brendan: NICE JOB RIGHT THERE. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? CUT IT OUT. BEFORE YOU GLUE ANYTHING DOWN, A HOLE PUNCH OR STAB YOUR PEN THROUGH, WHATEVER YOU HAVE, THREAD IT WITH RIBBON BECAUSE YOU WILL END UP COVERING IT AND IT DRIES AND YOU HANG IT. SO THIS IS TACKY GLUE. AND IT WANTS TO HAVE A FIGHT THIS MORNING. I DON’T KNOW WHY. YOU CAN JUST PUT THE GLUE DOWN. AND WE GO RED, WHITE — Brendan: ALTERNATE THOSE COLORS AND IT IS NOTHING BUT A PARTY ON A TREE. YOU CAN DO WHATEVER COLORS YOU WANT. BUT IT WILL BE EASY. IT WILL BE SO PRETTY PRETTY AND IT POPS ON THE TREE AND THEY HOLD UP PRETTY WELL. WHAT DO THEY CALL THIS. THE CLEAR ORANGEMENT COTTON BALL SNOWMAN. Brendan: THE NAME OF THE ORNAMENT IS CLEAR ORNAMENT COTTON BALL SNOWMAN. [LAUGHTER] HOLD YOUR APPLAUSE. YOU CAN DO GLASS OR PLASTIC. BUT YOU HAVE COTTON BALLS AT HOME AND JUST STUFF FROM THIS COMES OFF UNTIL YOU FEEL LIKE IT IS FULL ENOUGH. I USED MARKER TO DRAW A LITTLE FACE AND THEN RIBBON HERE AND POMPOMS FOR EARMUFFS. YOU CAN TOTALLY EMIT THE MUST HAVES IF IT IS NOT YOUR JAM. IT LOOKS GREAT AGAINST A GREEN TREE. Brendan: AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST. THIS IS MY FA*UF RIT IDEA. WE SAW SANTA EARLIER IN THE WEEK AND THEY’RE GIVINGING OUT WALLETS STILL. NO ONE CARRIES THEM AROUND ANYMORE, RIGHT? LET ME DOING SOMETHING WITH IT TO SAVE IT AND I’LL SEND IT TO MY DAD. THREE POPSICLE STICKS. NOTICE THE BOTTOM IS SHORTER THAN THE OTHER TWO. YOU CUT HALF AN INCH OFF AND USE IT FOR THE STEM. AND GLUE IT ON THE BACK. AND GLUE YOUR PHOTO DOWN. I USED PUFFY PAINT. AND I USED MARKER. AND THEN PUT THE RIBBON ON THE BACK. A NICE KEEPSAKE. Brendan: I STILL HAVE ONE ON THE TREE. I HAVE A HIDEOUS BOWL CUT BUT YOU HAVE IT OVER THE YEARS. AND HANG ON TO IT. Brendan: BECAUSE WHO WOULD WANT TO FORGET THAT HAIRCUT CAN. ALWAYS NICE TO SEE YOU. SOME GREAT IDEAS. BY 10:00 A.M., HOPEFULLY I’M DONE CUTTING OUT THIS CANDY
