Dollar Store Delights part 2

Despite the snow we still feel a need for spring! While at the dollar store purplicious and I came across these:

She LOVED them and we decided to pick them up and find something to do with them.  With a little effort they became the perfect addition to our tree to make it ready for Spring.  Definitely not high-class fancy decor but kid friendly and cheap! 

First step:  Twist item off of the skewer.  Some just needed a slight tug others a small twist and tug.

Next:  Take about 5 inches of thread and use a needle to slide it though the styrofoam.  Tie into a knot and viola your done!

That being said it was a little labor intensive it probably took me about an hour to tie all the little knots.  Then let the munchkins go crazy putting them on the tree.  This was followed up by mom spreading them out a little when 5 landed all on the same branch!

When all was said and done we had a small spot of Spring to brighten our day!
