My little caroliers are made out of pine wood. Painted with acrylic paint. The little christmas tree. My children helped me make, is made by putting a dowel in a base then cutting different lengths of silver pipe cleaners, wrapping them around dowel to shape a Christmas tree. The ordinments are made from shrink art. ( I always call it skinky dink. I know showing my age again.) I used some of the clip art from My Grafico which you can find Here: http://www.mygrafico.com/stamps/christmas-stamps-and-brushes/prod_1401.html
We colored them with colored pencils before we shank them.
