These are just so cute! I would never have thought that you could make such a pretty mantle decoration out of paper and led lights. I think that they would make wonderful and inexpensive gifts for family and friends. Some of my older students would love to give these a try!

I never thought I would find such an easy craft to make. My family would be jealous to see this on my mantle and realize how fast it was. They would be mad if I did not make enough for them too, so I guess I will be making a ton of them this year. So beautiful and thrifty! I love it!
