1.  Scrunch your tin foil into a tree shape.

Our book:
The Little Crooked Christmas Tree is such a beautiful story about a tree that shelters a dove. As a result, it becomes crooked and despairs of ever becoming a Christmas tree.  Until one day when everything changes...

  7. What kind of paint did you use? When ever I've used tempera paint on foil it flakes off, especially when the child layers it on.

    1. It's just washable poster paint. The brand is Palmer and I got it at JoAnn's. It's been a couple of weeks and it hasn't flaked off yet, but they aren't handled that much. I just picked one up and it seemed fine, but I imagine it couldn't withstand my kids playing with it.

  12. these are perfect for our new Winter Animals Small World we are creating.
    just wondering if you could let me know the type of paint (acrylic or tempera/washable) that you used over the foil, to create such bright color finishes ;D ??? Thank you!
