Holiday Decorating Challenge Day 6: Make it Personal!
When you are decorating for the holidays, it's nice to be able to add your own style to the mix! Today's challenge is to create one of a kind ornaments that show off your personality!
Here are two DIY ornaments you can make:
Cookie Cutter Ornaments
These ornaments are really easy to make and provide you with unlimited possibilities. There is a wide selection of cutter cookie shapes from snowmen to bells for you to choose from.
First, pick out your patterned (or scrapbook) papers or color-photocopy pictures, and attach them onto card stock. Next, trace around the cookie cutter and cut out the shape. Add a little glue along the cookie cutter's edge. Then press the paper in place and let dry. Finally, poke a hole in between paper and cookie cutter, and wrap ribbon around top of cutter.
Glass Ball Ornament
These ornament are so simple! Get clear glass ornaments and your favorite paint and you are ready to go! You can select paint that follows your holiday color scheme or you can pick colors that make a statement!
First, squirt about a teaspoon of paint directly into the ornament. Then slowly swirl it around until it coats the inside. Use a paper cup to store the ornament upside down so that all the excess paint runs out. Leave it upside down for about 24 hours to make sure it has plenty of time to dry. Once dry, add the metal cap!
Do you have any handmade ornaments on your tree? Does your tree have a theme or does it have a more of a variety of ornaments?
