Estes Park in (more) Pictures

Too tired to write anything today, so I'm participating in Silent Sunday.  (Is that even a thing?  If not, it is now.)

Crafty Kid Time: Tissue Paper Wreaths

Ashley and I did a fun craft the other day that I thought I'd share with you all.  We made tissue paper wreaths and I think they turned out dang cute!

First, I cut up millions of squares of tissue paper.  Well, maybe not millions.  But it sure seemed like a lot.

Then, I took an ordinary paper plate and cut it like this...

So, when I opened it up it would look like this.

I know you are all super impressed right now. 

Then Ashley and I got to gluing.  We wrapped tissue paper around the end of a pencil...

Dipped it in glue...

And stuck it on the plate.

Lather, rinse, repeat, gluing the tissues as close together as you can.

By the time we were done, this is what Ashley's wreath looked like:

And this was mine.

We then hung them up in her bedroom window. Aren't they so pretty?

Ashley had so much fun making these, that she woke up the next morning and made another one! And Aidan and Owen joined in too. We are swimming in wreaths over here, people. Maybe I should sell them online.
