These handpainted clothing pins look like a fun activity for children and parents. Also you can look at for similar handcrafted christmas decorations created in Germany by Steinbach and Ino Schaller. You will find wood nutcrackers and Paper Mache Candy Containers.

This is an ornament idea which children canmake . . . even younger ones can paint - or color with permanent ink markers - and you'll end up with something cute which will look even cuter on the tree!
