Looking for ideals on how to turn a paper coffee cup into a Christmas Ornament. Something that is easy other than a bell. Then can be done by all ages.
Laura from Missouri
Put the cup on its side with the bottom facing you. Paint it brown. Cut out reindeer ears from felt or brown construction paper. Glue to the cup on each side of the cup near the bottom. Cut a brown chenille stem in two. Twist smaller pieces on each half for antlers and poke into the cup after tipping the ends with glue. Draw eyes and a mouth on the bottom of the cup and add a red pompom (the sparkle ones would be fun) for a nose. At the open end, add a yarn tail and you have a Rudy Cup. Insert a string through the cup so it can be hung. Or put a styrofoam ball in the open end of the cup(needs to be a tight fit and glued in securely). Paint the whole thing brown. Glue google eyes and red pom nose and a felt mouth on the ball.Brown paper or felt ears go on the sides of the top of the ball and chenille stem antlers poked in the cup as for version 1. Add the yarn tail to the bottom end of the cup and get a more 3D Rudy.
