"Wooden Christmas Ornaments"

Submitted by JT

This is one of my favorite homemade ornaments because they turn out really cute and are fairly inexpensive.  They are quick, easy and fun to make.  My three year old even had fun helping me.

Materials:

Wooden die cut (found at Michael's craft store)
Decorative paper
Ribbon
Scissors
Pencil
Mod Podge
Paint Brush (1/2)
Wooden hand drill (found at Michael's craft store)
Glitter (optional)
Other embellishments (optional)

Instructions:

Take your wooden die cut and trace it onto your paper. 

Cut the shape out two times (one for each side of the die cut).  If your die cut is not symmetrical trace and cut both sides.

With your paint brush apply Mod Podge on one side of the die cut. 

Apply the paper to the die cut.

Apply Mod Podge over the top of the paper.  ( If you are going to apply glitter to your ornament this is the time to do it.)

Let the Mod Podge dry.

Repeat steps 3-6 for the opposite side.

After the entire ornament is dry, drill a hole where you would like to hang the ornament from. 

Cut your ribbon to a length that you choose and tie.

If you choose to apply any other embellishments now is the time to do that.

Now go hang it on your tree or tie onto your gifts. ENJOY!
