Materials:

brush

hot glue

fabric

Regular School Glue

 Step 1:  Cut square out of cardboard…I cut 5 ” squares ( I used an old mailer…it’s free this way!)

Step 2:  Cut same size squares out of scrap fabric…twice as many as the amount of cardboard squares (you’ll need squares for front and back)

Step 3: Line up fabric and cardboard squares on wax paper

Step 4: Spread Mod Podge completely over one side of the cardboard

Step 8:  Sprinkle glitter onto glued areas and allow to dry and dust off glitter into trash

Step 9:  Add trim using a hot glue gun.  Anything goes in this step.  I used ribbons, bias trim, and ric rac.  I tied bows and added them to make the squares look like presents.  Make sure you also add a loop hanger on the back for hanging.

Step 10:  You are done!  Hang them on the tree or around a door knob…anywhere you like!

    These are neat. I’ve been looking for and doing things with my daycare kids. This is something they can help me do for their tree on the porch. If you’d like to see, check out what we’ve already done.
    Thanks for sharing and teaching. You did an excellent job.
    Take care, God Bless and hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas.

      These would definitely be great for the kids to do…they are super simple. You could probably use the white glue to attach the fabric to the cardboard too.
