Sumter, South Carolina wrote in to say, "Last year, we had an
Advent evening at church and the kids used sticky-backed craft foam to
cut out chrismon ornaments. After cutting out the foam shapes, the
kids used gold glitter to add detail and dimension to them, then
attached the chrismon shapes to small red fabric banners that we hung
from torches attached to the church pews for Christmas. They look
beautiful and I am planning to make white banners for the Easter season
using gold chrismon or Easter symbols to stick on white banners."
