Craft Fail!

Continuing with my goal of doing Christmas crafts with the kids I decided to make a Christmas Wreath using the kids hand prints. It sounded like a good idea.

First I traced the all the kids hands...except Owen's left since he wanted to trace it. It ended up looking like the Hunchback of Notre Dams hand, but I couldn't bring myself to ask him if I could trace it again after he did it all by himself.

Then I cut out all the hand prints.

At this point things were going well....then I glued them on a paper place with the center cut out of it and this is what I got.

It is SO ugly! Never mind the fact that there weren't enough hand prints to cover the plate all the way around...even if you envision it all filled up it would STILL be ugly. Oh well you win some you lose some!
