On October 1, 2012 Colorado Springs Girl Scout Troop 921 made ornaments for the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree, which was provided from our great state, Colorado. The girls decoupaged plastic plates with pictures from books depicting the nature of Colorado, since the theme for the decorations was “Celebrating Our Great Outdoors.” The Girl Scout leaders brought books and magazines where the girls could pick pictures then glued them onto plastic plates. Since we decided to work outside, the girls even decoupaged leaves or items from “the great outdoors”! Our troops’ ornaments are now hanging on the Capitol’s Christmas tree! See photos of our girls decorating and the adorned tree at the White House.
