the one with a diy initial ornament

Every year I make a new ornament for our tree! The goal is to have it commemorate the big event of the year. I call it the ornament event! Of course, when something big happens I do say out loud ‘is this our ornament event!?’ But this year I knew pretty early on what our ornament event would be. I knew on January 27th – the day I found out I was preggo with baby Jack! So this year I decided to make a diy initial ornament! It’s the first holiday craft for my baby boy, and it was super quick, inexpensive, and easy! Just the way I like it!

How to:

  1. First, trace your initial onto your scrapbook paper. Then cut it out.
  2. Second, use your sponge brush and cover the back and front of paper with mod podge as well as the top of the initial. Then place it perfectly on top.
  3. Once the mod podge is dry, cut  a piece of washi tape to fit where you’d like. Then place it carefully.
  4. Next up, write a phrase, date, or little diddy on the washi tape!
  5. Then hot glue your accents in place!
  6. Finally, cut a piece of string to use as a hook and staple it to the back of the initial.
