Sticks (6″ in length)
Ribbon scraps (shades of green and brown work well)
Hot glue gun
1. Tie the scraps of ribbon down the stick.
2. Trim the ribbon scraps into the shape of a Christmas tree. After trimming, carefully melt the edges of the ribbons with a candle so the ribbon doesn’t fray.
3. Use the hot glue to attach a piece of twine to the top so the ornament can hang.
These ornaments are beautifully rustic, simple, and can be a fun snowy day craft for the kids!
From the December 2014 Take 10 Bulletin
Women’s Institute is a local, provincial, national and international organization that promotes women, families and communities. Our goal is to empower women to make a difference.
The idea to form a national group was first considered in 1912. In 1914, however, when the war began the idea was abandoned. At the war’s end, Miss Mary MacIsaac, Superintendent of Alberta Women’s Institute, revived the idea. She realized the importance of organizing the rural women of Canada so they might speak as one voice for needed reforms, and the value of co-ordinating provincial groups for a more consistent organization. In February 1919, representatives of the provinces met in Winnipeg, Manitoba, to form the Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada.
