One of my passions is the 1940's wartime. I love the romance, the mystery, the intrigue, and relate pretty well. Heck, I used to pinup model! During the war, they would ration everything from sugar to fabric and just about everything in between. For Christmas decorations, there were very few things that they had extra of to bring a little cheer.
I went old-school today.
TADA! Paper chains. what, you heard fanfare and got let down? sorry. this is something that can be done with the kiddos, and who knows! You might make a few fond Christmas memories. Speaking of memories, the question of today is what is your fondest Christmas memory?
there are SO many to choose from, but I'm going to relate this one: last year, my kids and I started a tradition of a gingerbread decorating contest. We didn't even have any gingerbread. So, instead we used graham crackers. I made some royal icing, and with dollar tree candy we decorated and had a blast! yes, they looked like the Flintstones houses. but we had fun and had a great Christmas memory.
So, What you need:
12x12 sheets cut at 6 x 1"
a "dry" adhesive. I used my ATG gun.
here's how I did it!
