Every few years, I teach another young crafter how to make these ornaments. My niece still has the ones we made together more than 30 years ago!
Total Time: 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on the age of the child
Yield: 1 each
Make a Santa, fairy, or other dolls to decorate Christmas trees, easily, using simple household items like blank papers, cotton, and used gift-wraps.
Editors Note: This could be a good craft for the kids to help make decorations.
Approximate Time: less than an hour
And the Santa's done!
Similarly, I made the fairy using different colored gift-wraps, gluing wool on her head for hair and gluing some gift-wraps, cut as wings, to her back.
With little tweaks, the same process can be used to make any doll of your choice. All we need is a little imagination :)

This cute Santa ornament is created with classic red glass balls, glue and glitter. They will add a festive touch to any Christmas tree or decoration.
Approximate Time: 15 minutes
Note: If you are doing with kids, use plastic bulbs as the glass may shatter if they use too much pressure.
