Crafting Seed Ornaments for The Christmas Tree


   I made these seed ornaments by tracing around cookie cutters on top of some heavy weight cardboard. Then I applied a generous amount of white glue to one side of the cardboard and  arranged all kinds of peas, beans, rice and lentils in a design that pleased me. 
   Allow the glue to dry for a few days before brushing on additional coats of Mod Podge to the surface of these ornaments to preserve them. Then cover the back side of each ornament with heavy brown paper, sandwiching a rustic looking brown cord between the the two layers.
   This ornament project is an excellent craft for very young children during the holidays. It will preoccupy them for an entire afternoon while their parents are busy in the kitchen.
