How to Make an Easy Paper Plate Gingerbread Man Christmas Ornament Craft for Kids
- safety scissors
- small paper plates
- markers, colored pencils, crayons or paint
- white yarn for decoration and for ornament hanger
First, color the small plate with brown.
Add eyes and a mouth with a black marker. Then add red for the cheeks.
Next, cut a strip of red construction paper about 1.5 inches wide. Draw a bow on the back of the paper.
Cut the bow out. Glue to the top or bottom of the circle. Make sure to leave room for a hole to hang the ornament. Let dry.
Next, cut a piece of white yarn and glue it towards the top in a wave line. I used a glue stick and first put a stripe of glue and then pressed the yarn into it.
Finally, put a small hole at the top of your ornament. Thread the yarn through the hole and tie a double knot.
Tip: Make sure to put the hole away from the edge so it doesn’t tear the paper. A hole punch works well, too.
Your paper plate gingerbread ornament craft is finished.
