These ornaments are made from tongue depressors and are very easy to make.

For the snowman you need:

For the angel you need:

All you do is paint and glue. I used glitter glue to attach the small sequins but used hot glue for the rafia, felt, and ribbon.

I would like a suggestion for a Christmas favor for a nursing home tray item. We have the depressors, just need a fresh idea of how to decorate them so they can be placed on the dining table for the holidays.

I recently went to a wedding where as a favor the Bride's Mother had made a Fan cut from Cardstock paper with the couple's photo and a quote.The handle was about the size of a tongue depressor,glued onto the back. You could use this idea and make your fan a Christmas tree or snowman shape and have a christmas greeting and staff photo on the front. Just an idea I thought I'd pass along.

You can piant them up to have them look like snowmen. I have a pic of one I did on a small paint stick but the same idea would work on a depressor.

If you would like the photo email me at:

You can decorate them to make them look like a person with a little basket with a little treat in it. Like a candy or very small candies. Enjoy.""
