Rings from twist off lids like those on salad dressing jars can be covered in green pipe cleaners with a tiny bow on top to make Christmas tree ornaments.
Approximate Time: Depends on age of child
- Plastic ring from a twist off lid
- Fuzzy green pipe cleaner
- Tiny red bow, either purchased or hand tied from scrap of ribbon
Completely cover the plastic ring by winding the pipe cleaner around and around it. Glue a tiny bow to the place where the ends of the pipe cleaner meet.

These are cute. I will have to make some with my daughter and the neighbor kids, and share the idea with her art teacher. Kids will have fun making these. Thanks for sharing.
Recycled milk jug lids for a Christmas wreath ornament. Save the circle portion of your milk jugs. All you need are some pipecleaners and some ribbon. Simply wrap the pipecleaner around the lids and add some ribbon to hang your wreath. Cute and simple craft for school.

Great Idea - I have been looking for ideas for my 4 year old for Christmas and this sounds like it would be within what he can handle! Maybe I can use white pipe cleaners and do something that looks like snowflakes too (cris-crossing the middle of the ring).
