A few more ornaments and gift wrap idea

Here are three more ornaments that we have made over the years. They span the decades of the girls growing up as you will see.

From a looong time ago... this little ornament works for the under 10 crowd.


Remove the topper and then paint a small clear glass ornament with a clear glitter paint. When that dries, dot it with red and green acrylic paint. Easy!

From not so, so long ago




You will need a 2" clear glass ball, Mod Podge, tissue paper, glitter gold tinsel trimmed wire, and glitter

Remove the topper and put some of the gold tinsel inside the ball. You can add glitter, too. Then Mod Podge a few pieces of tissue paper on the outside of the ball. Don't cover the entire ball-- leave some clear spots, too. Sprinkle lightly with glitter before it dries. After it dries, replace the topper and twist some of the wire around the top.


Finally from just a few years ago, these were the favors at Brooke's December wedding.






One more craft for the kids. I don't have a picture, but it won't be hard to imagine it. We used to have big rolls of white paper leftover from my husband's work. One year at Christmans, the girls made stamps from potatos. (Cut a potato in half and then carve a design such as a bell, star, holly leaf, etc.) Then they dipped the stamp into red or green paint and stamped away. You can add GLITTER!!! to make it more festive. 

ENJOY!

Brooke's wedding favor ornaments are adorable. Love them. I wanted to have an ornament bridal shower gift for my sister in law last year when she was engaged.
