Remember when I wrapped my son’s lunch for his Birthday? We just did it for Christmas and he LOVED it.

Wood Ornaments Tutorial
In our home, we have been trying to focus on the meaning behind the season. In my efforts to stick with that theme, we created some ornaments that had reflected the gift of that first Christmas. Our kids had a lot of fun with this craft. It is definitely for an older child though as my youngest is 6 and oldest 12. This post will be added to a series from 50 bloggers called 20 Days of Kid-Made Ornaments. You can also check our the other adorable ideas from these other bloggers on the group Pinterest board.
- Mod Podge
- Scrapbooking paper
- sponge brush
- wood rectangles
- Vinyl or sticker letters
- Stamps and ink
Trace wood rectangles onto patterned paper and cut out.
Add a layer of Mod Podge with sponge onto wood.
Then stick paper on top of wood and add another layer of mod podge on top. Allow to dry.
Several choices for adding words. Vinyl, Paint, or Stamp.
- Vinylfromdiecutmachine- I cut out vinyl stickers from my silhouette machine with the words my kids chose for their ornaments. Then transferred them to contact paper.
- Stickers – You can print sayings off of your computer on sticker paper and cut them out
- Paint words by hand
- Hand stamp as seen below ( I was inspired by hand stamping from the Swenglish Home)Use a staple gun to attach a ribbon to the back.
