Welcome to Craft Monday at the Christmas for Little Ones Blog Series. I have to tell you, this month is has flown by! I cannot even believe that Christmas will be here in 8 short days and haven't finished my homemade gifts yet! Well, if you are like me, this is an easy gift that only takes a trip to the craft store!
-3 in by 3 in wood squares (found in the wood aisle at the craft store)
-White glitter cardstock
-ribbon, string or wire
Start by cutting the white paper into 3x3 squares. I added paper to both sides of the square. Paint Modge Podge onto the wood squares and add the white paper. The edge will most likely be a bit un-even, so sand the edges with a piece of sandpaper to even it out.
Now, comes the drill. Use a small drill bit to drill eiather 1 or 2 holes in the squares (depending on how you want the ornament to hang).
Next, you will want to add your photo. I cut mine down to be smaller than the square to allow room for the white paper to show and to add embellishments. I used photo squares to add my photos, no worry about glue drying that way. Then, I added the embellishments to my liking. Almost finished!
Last, I added wire through the hole in my ornament. To document the year the ornament was made, I added a small strip of linen fabric and added the year with a black permanent marker.
I have two children, so I put one kiddo on each side! Worked out perfectly! Have you made any ornaments for family this year?
