Letters to Santa

I just wanted to show everyone this cute Christmas craft I made.


  • Crystal Light container
  • 1 sheet of scrapbook paper
  • glue
  • wire
  • paper piercer
  • ribbon
  • embellishments

I had saved my Crystal Light container to make a bank for my son. Then I saw an ornament at Target that was similar to my tube and it inspired me. I simply cut out scrapbook paper and glued it arounf the container. I cut circles to glue on the ends. I poked holes in the container to put the wire through and embellished the wire with ribbon and a few metal charms. My boys wrote letters to santa and put them in the tube and hung it on the tree. Santa snuck in at night and took the letters and left them letters in return.

That's adorable! I made the wooden spool ornaments on Family Fun with my kids this year but I like this one even better! No having to repeat it every year! Thanks for the idea...
