2C The Mountain Messenger, Tuesday, November 22, 1990 ;O a All AIIC" Tradition Each year, tamilies gather for the holidays to celebrate and observe the customs and traditions that have been passed down to them through the generations, Whether it's decorating the tree on Christmas Eve, hosting a holiday dinner by candlelight or vis- iting distant relatives, each family has its own special way of enjoying the season. This year, why not start a new holiday tradition and turn your Christmas tree into a "family tree," by making special ornaments for your relatives. It's a great way to honor family .members, create unique decorations and teach chil- dren about their ancestry. Best of all, with the right craft supplies, it's easy for both children and adults to be creative. To make family ornaments that are sure to become family k~akes, here are some tips from FaberTCastell, a Triple Weave AFGHANS Tradition In Gift Giving for over I Tom Clark ,REATIONS Fireplace FANS Sensor CANDLE LAMPS | Brass & Christmas Tapes Christmas WREATHS Rosewood FRAMES POTPOURRI & BASKETS leading manufacturer of craft and writ- ing instruments: Begin by seeing how many orna- ments you'll need by making a list of family members. If you aren't sure about lineage, now is the perfect time to ask. Talk to grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins about their remembrances of the family, and you're sure to discover some "new" relatives. Get the kids involved, too--they'll love hearing about the "good old days." Once your list is complete, visit your local craft store and purchase a plain glass, plastic or wooden orna- ment for each family member. For an extra epecial touch, try to match your relatives' personalities. For example, you may want to choose a small wood- en block for a toddler or a delicate blown-glass ball for a favorite aunt. If young children will be making their own ornaments, they can use shapes cut from colored construction paper or wood. Begin decorating each ornament by personalizing it with the person's name. Non-toxic, water-based paints will work best on your ornaments and will be safe for children. For bright colors that will stand out vividly on almost' any surface or color back- ground, using Uni-POSCA paint mark- ers by Faber-Castell is a great way to work with paint and not have to worry about spills or drips. Once the ornament is personalized, continue to decorate it with designs that express the person's uniqueness, such as his or her profession or favorite hobbies. For example, make a design of flowers for someone who enjoys gardening or draw a shiny, red apple if the person is a teacher. If you decide to focus on your family's ethnic heritage, look to the flags of your countries of origin for a color scheme ..... When you're through decorating, glue a small picture of the person to the ornament. GIVE omEone you tore a pomszan; oft ccRt|flCate 120 E.
