All you’ll need are coffee filters, cardboard, glue, string, and various decorative stickers and glitter glue. 

First, have your child decorate coffee filters with markers. Once they’re finished with their masterpiece, have them spray it with water before setting it aside to dry. 

Next, cut various ornament shapes out of cardboard, then cut the coffee filters to match each cardboard cutout. 

Have your child help glue the coffee filters onto the cardboard using a glue stick, then attach a twine loop to the top of each ornament.
