Christmas time means glittering, colorful decorations--and what could be more fun than decorating with mosaics. Using shiny paper and sequins, or even starting with a plain potato, kids can make window decorations, festive greeting cards, gift tags, and a glittering angel mobile. Still another of Sarah Kelly's easy-to-follow art projects transforms an ordinary glass jar into a night-light holder to enhance the glow of a Christmas candle. Thirteen full-scale templates
make it easy for boys and girls to construct all these things, as well as create bright Christmas gift wrapping, shimmering tree ornaments, and more.
