One of the things that children of all ages (and grownups too for that matter) enjoy doing a great deal at Christmas is decorating their homes. Putting ornaments, tinsel, and baubles on a tree is an activity everyone looks forward too. Some people like to take this pleasurable activity to another level by making their own ornaments. With this kit in hand crafters can make eight little angle ornaments, each one of which will be unique.

Everything a crafter needs is included in the kit except nail clippers (or wire cutters), scissors and a few other readily available items. Inside a little booklet crafters will find directions (with illustrations) that show them how to make the angels. Plenty of photographs show ornament makers how their angels will look when they are completed. Crafters are not only walked through every step of the process but they are also encouraged to use their own creativity to make their angels a one-of-a-kind treasure.

This kit would make a great pre-Christmas gift for a young crafter who enjoys making things for the holidays.
