Kids Crafts for the Holidays with Ribbon Resource and May Arts

Are you like me and always trying to come up with economical crafts for the kids to create.  This is one that would be perfect for Sunday School, Boy Scouts or school projects with kids.  This simple twig star is only held together by some beautiful but trusty ribbon/cord from Ribbon Resource.  The hardest part about it is searching for the sticks/twigs in the yard.  The best part is right now over on Ribbon Resource when you place an order you get a free roll of Christmas ribbon free...all month long with every order. 

You can see all types of kids projects on our Kid Crafts Blog Hop hop over to the rest of the team members to see what they have in store for you.

Here is where you can pick up all the ribbon/cording used for this project
