All of the supplies we got at our local craft store and/or had them on hand. For each gingerbread ornament, here is what you will need:
Wooden Gingerbread Christmas Tree Ornaments
1 unfinished gingerbread man wood cut-out
jute or thin gauge rope
scraps of homespun fabric
1/4" diameter unfinished wood heart
bottle all-purpose craft glue
brown, pink, white and black acrylic craft paint
* Each unfinished gingerbread shape measures 4" to 5" tall.
Lay some newspapers down or an old plastic table cloth. Let the kids paint their gingerbread wooden shapes however they would like. (The one shown in the photo was done by an 8 year old girl). Once all of the paint is dry let them glue on ribbon, fabric bows, buttons or whatever else you have to decorate them. Let the paint and glue dry completely before hanging.
Note: Some of the kids decided to not glue on hanging loops and instead glued on magnets on the back and turned them into refrigerator magnets.
