Norrie Tree Topper
YOU WILL NEED:
- styrofoam balls
- one large, three small ones
- heavy pink and white coloured card
- gold paper, or packet of gold star stickers
- gold pipe cleaners
- paint & brushes
- fast drying glue
- paper tube
INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING THE HEAD:
- First the ears – with a scalpel or sharp knife cut off a thin slice on each small styrofoam balls to create a flat area for gluing them to the head. Cut two similar flat edges on the larger head ball for gluing on the ears
- Glue the ears to the head piece
- To make the nose cut off a thin section of a paper roll tube
- Push a small styrofoam ball into the paper tube slice and glue onto the face of the large ball
- Now that Norrie’s head is made it’s time to paint
INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING NORRIE’S SKIRT, WINGS & HALO:
- Using the template provided cut Norrie’s dress out of heavy pink card, and cut the wings out of white card. If you’re feeling energetic you can cut stars from gold paper, or just buy a packet of gold star stickers from your nearest stationery store.
- Glue the two straight sides of the dress (a to b) together to form the cone shaped dress. Glue on the stars.
- Glue the two wings tips together as shown.
- For Norrie’s halo you need two pipe cleaners, one shaped into a circle, and the second joined on to create an upright stem.
- Nearly there!!! Glue the dress to Norrie’s head. Hold until secure. Trim the halo stem and glue to the back of Norrie’s head. Glue the wings to the back of her dress.
- Ah Woof! You deserve a Tinsel Badge for making the cutest Norrie Christmas Tree Topper ever! – you can of course also use the tree topper as a decoration on the mantle piece, or your little one’s bedside locker to watch over their festive dreams.
