Gorgeous, no? And really, how hard could they be to make from scratch?!
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the 2011 winner of the Holiday Decorating Innovation Award:
What's even more embarrassing is that I did 90% of the work on these horrendous things! At least if the kids had done them independently we could all ooh and ahh about how special they are. Firstborn lost interest after the first gooey layer of papier mache. RB loved every messy step, but in more of an I'm-going-to-dip-my-hands-in-paint-then-run-around-the-house-flapping-them kind of way. And the catch-22 is that because they did do that 10%, I'm going to have to display them proudly on the tree until January 1st!
I'm thinking I'll stick to baking with my kids from now on...
