This is my first tutorial so please have patience. Feel free to email me any questions you may have.
Santa's Wish List
Spool (I used 1 1/2" x 2 1/8"-pack of 6 from Joann's-and they're on sale this week)
Paints in holiday colors
And if you do let the Kindergartner participate you'll also need a computer with scanner
Inspiration for this project came from Family Fun Magazine
Prime and paint the spool.
(I just used white acrylic paint to prime it.)
You don't need to paint any farther than I did-your list will cover that part up.
Have your kids write out their lists... If they still write rather large like shown above then scan into computer and shrink down to 1.6" x 5.25". Put a thin boarder around it so that you can cut it out easier. I enlisted my computer savvy Hubs to do this step for me-Thanks Honey ;-)
This is what it should look like after scanning and cutting it out.
Flip the list over and put 2 glue dots on the top of the paper.
Stick the top of the list down onto the spool as shown.
Using 2 more glue dots... stick them to the spool near the list.
