Christmas crepe paper banners

Following on from the Halloween crepe paper banners we made in October, we thought we'd try out some Christmas banners. We bought some red and green crepe paper.

We like the Santa hats and Xmas trees the best but also experimented with heart shapes and candy canes.

Basically just take the crepe paper out of the packet and cut off a portion. Design your shape then cut it out. Make sure you have enough of each shape connected to each other on the sides to keep the chain strong when you stretch it out.

For the Santa Hats we added cotton wool balls with glue ...

... and a "Merry Christmas" stamp on each hat.

Actually I think I like the simplicity of the shiny green trees the most.
