Another Handmade Christmas Ornament

This is another favorite craft for kids to do.


My grandmother made this one while volunteering at the mission center in her hometown. This ornament is probably as old as me and gets packed away very carefully each year after Christmas, with the other handmade ornaments we’ve inherited from her.

It’s pretty obvious construction: matchsticks, a Christmas scene cut from an old Christmas card, glue, a hole punch, and an ornament hanger. Just alternate laying the matches from different sides like lincoln logs. Oh, and burn and stub them out first.
