Peacock Tree Ornament - Kid Made Christmas Ornaments Link Up

Peacocks are all the rage for Christmas tree decorating in the last few years,
and most of you know how much Butterfly and I loooooove peacocks!
So we decided to create a peacock ornament for our tree!  

With this craft, we are participating in
Mama Miss' 20 Days of Kid-made Christmas Ornament Link-up!

The supplies we needed to make this ornament, is green and blue sparkly foam sheets that have the sticky back.  Green and blue feathers, googly eyes, a beak (we used a purple sticky foam piece), ribbon, and a bit of glue.

We cut out two blue ovals for the body and a green "bowling pin" shaped body.

We peeled the back off of one of the blue ovals and Butterfly stuck her feathers on the sticky side in a blue-green pattern, for the peacock's tail.

Then she peeled the back off of the other blue oval and stuck it over top of the feathers on the sticky side.  So both oval's sticky sides are stuck together, holding the feathers in between.

Butterfly peeled the green body and stuck that on top.

Butterfly wanted the circle patterns on the feathers like real peacocks, so she cut out blue and green circles from the same glittery foam sheets and peeled and stuck those on in a pattern as well.

We glued on the googly eyes and ribbon and stuck on the beak.

Easy peasy craft!  It looks great on our white frosty tree!  We have a lot of turquoise, green, purple, and pink ornaments on our tree, so this peacock matches perfectly!!
