christmas choir craft

Our Christmas Choir

**I found this adorable craft in a Family Fun magazine and you can view it online as well.** 

We had so much fun making these and we decided to name them Astair, Boston, and Thaddeus.  Stunning, the resemblance. (smile)  I only now noticed that Astair and Boston's song sheets are upside down!  Oh well, they can't read anyway!  But they sure can sing!

What you'll need:
Toilet paper and/or paper towel tubes
construction paper and/or scrapbook paper
old socks and/or fabric scraps
ribbon or yarn
song sheet
black marker

What you'll do:
1}  In the online instructions it suggested painting the tubes, but we were a bit impatient and decided to cover them in construction paper instead. 
2} Cut out shapes for the face out of construction paper and glued them onto the tubes. 
3} Cut out rectangles of sheet music approx. 1 1/2 inches tall and 3 inches wide.
4} Cut out mittens in patterned paper and glue the mittens to the sheet music and then to the tubes.
5} Cut an old sock or scraps of fabric to make a hat and tie it with string.
6} Make your sweet faces
