– All right, we’re gonna
make string art ornaments. – [Kelly] Okay. – These are something that are fun to make with grownups and kids. You need five things: a slab
of wood, it’s cookie shaped. – [Cookie Monster] Cookie! – [Nick] Don’t mean to be misleading.
– Eat a cookie! – Some small nails. – [Kelly] Okay.
– [Muppet] Ooh, nails! – [Nick] A hammer, a
template, and some string. – Alright, so where do we start? – Okay, well see my
template is in the shape of a Christmas tree. So you lay that on your wood. – [Kelly] Okay. – [Nick] And you’re gonna drive a nail (gasps) – [Kelly] In all the dots? – [Nick] Everywhere there’s a dot. – [Kelly] Okay. – You don’t have to
drive them in very far, but you do want each one of
them to be approximately level. You wanna be careful. It’s a good idea to protect
your eyes whenever you’re – Oh! (laughter) – [Kelly] Okay. – Nothing to see here! – Oh whoops, oh shoot, yeah! It’s totally cool!
(Muppet singing) – I don’t know why we’re
doing this in the dark. (laughter) – Safety first, right? – [Kelly] Safety first.
– Safety first Mr. (hammering on wood) – Now this is gonna take
awhile so I’m gonna ask Abby, – Yeah? – If she will help us through
the magic of television (ooohs) by giving us a wave of your wand. (laughter) – Okay, here we go, Nick! Through the magic of television, (tinkling bells) Zippadee, zap! (cheers and shocked noises) – [Elmo] Good job, Abby! – Okay, Nick, what do we do now? Thank you Abby! – Abby, nice work. You see all the nails have been driven in, and the template has been torn away. (noises of agreement) So you take your string, – [Elmo] Yes. – [Nick] and you wind it
around all these nails. – Okay. – And you see that your
shape will begin to form. In my case, it’s a Christmas tree. – [Elmo] Very festive! – [Nick] Thank you! – What you making? – I’m a heart. – Oh that’s so nice! – Exactly. – We’re doing a star. – [Kelly] I feel like I am all heart. – [Jennifer] You are! – [ Kelly] Yes. – So this is really fun
because you can choose whatever pattern you want, and you can go all over the place, but it’s gonna take a long time, so Abby? – Yeah? – [Nick] Do you think…
– Please help us! – …you could wave your wand again? – [Kelly] Ooh, girl, I
need one of those wands. (laughter) – Will you say please? – Please! – Okay. Here we go! Through the magic of television! (bells chime) Zipadee, zap! (amazed noises) (cheering) – [Kelly] Oh my gosh! – [Elmo] Good job, Abby! – My heart is beautiful! – We made a star! – [Cookie Monster] Beautiful. – Oh my gosh well thank
you so much, Mr. Nick. I’m gonna do this with my kids.
