“With the help of standard supplies such as construction paper, glue, yarn, sequins, ribbon, and markers, this old-fashioned craft book shows children how to transform everyday items into seasonal decorations and gifts. Readers who follow the step-by-step instructions will learn how to turn detergent bottles into figures of the three kings, an oatmeal box into a bathroom tissue cover, and a baby food jar filled with hair gel into a ‘Christmas Light Catcher.’” —Booklist
