You may have notice that we’ve been crafting a lot lately with tissue paper and our latest creation is this sparkly Christmas tree bunting.
I’m sure we’ll eventually move on to a different medium, but until then we’ve been having fun and making beautiful artwork with our tissue paper.
Now, on to this easy kids craft!

We then started sprinkling the glitter. The mess is actually minimal this way, since the contact paper catches most of it (unless, of course, your 2-yr-old manages to pull the top of the glitter bottle off).
After you’re satisfied with the amount of glitter, it’s time to cover the entire piece of Contact Paper with tissue paper. I had originally intended the girls to tear the tissue paper into small bits, but they wanted to go with large pieces instead.
Next, I took the needle and some strong thread and started threading the trees. I just ran the needle once through a spot near the top of each tree.
It was surprisingly easy to pierce the needle through the contact paper, so much so that I know Lizzie would have been able to have handled this part on her own.
