You’ll need: Frozen-juice can lids, wooden craft sticks, small boxes with lids, card stock and scissors, large buttons, potpourri, white glue, 8-inch lengths of narrow ribbon, and small doilies or paper coasters. Children’s Ministry Christmas Craft: Potpourri Ornaments Read aloud 2 Corinthians 2:15. Then say: Choose an object to create an ornament. Spread glue all over one side of your object. Press both ends of a piece of ribbon into the glue to form a loop. Cover the glue-covered side of your object with potpourri. Allow this to dry Optional: Glue a doily to the back or bottom of your object. Talk teasers Ask: How does your potpourri ornament smell? What does it mean that we are a “fragrance of Christ”? How do you think your faith in Christ smells to the people around you-very fragrant, a little fragrant, or not fragrant at all? How can we be very fragrant for Christ at school? at home? at play? Say: Use your ornament to remind you that Jesus wants us to be like him. Close in prayer for the areas children mention, and ask God to work a miracle in those areas. © Group Publishing, Inc.
