If we were a round wooden bead we'd like nothing more than a beret-like acorn topper and a sweet little face painted on us. Ez of Creature Comforts is offering up this easy, adult-supervised, tutorial for making a family of ornaments yourself.
Although you'll want to man the glue gun, kids with enough manual dexterity can draw their own faces on these. Make a whole family for your tree, use them in place of bows on gift wrapping or to adorn packaged baked goods you're gifting or have your kids make one in the image of their teacher as a token gift.
You can find a materials list and a photo how-to at Creature Comforts.
