It's so hard to not get bogged down trying to do it all during the Holidays, isn't it?
So here are 4 easy paper Holiday crafts that anyone can do – even the kids!

- Foam brush
- Coarse glitter
- Jute or hemp string
- Clothes pins (mini or regular sized)
- Cookie sheet covered in tin foil to contain glitter and mess (optional)
To make these pinwheels, fold sheet music (or old book pages) accordion style. Attach 2 -4 paper “fans” together to make pinwheel. Hot glue with card stock square in back and attach glitter letters (either purchased or homemade).

Even though the photo shows “give thanks” and traditional Thanksgiving messages, you could customize these simple paper napkin rings to say just about anything for any Holiday.
