We had so much fun doing Christmas stuff this weekend. We made a gingerbread house, watched Frosty, and even made some ornaments for the grandparents.
I knew I wanted to make a keepsake type of ornament. I am pretty sure my mom and grandmas would much rather receive something made by Sawyer than something bought from a store. But making something just wasn't enough - I wanted to add in a picture of their sweet grandson along with it.
There is no tutorial needed for these. I bought a 5 page chipboard album in the $1 section at Michaels. It's precut, thick cardboard and already has a hole punched to string a ribbon. One dollar for five ornaments? I'll take it.
Then I got out some white paint and let Sawyer work while I took pictures. After they dried, he decorated them with snowflake stickers (or in his words, "seekos").
That's where I took over. I printed the picture of him painting the ornament and traced the tree shape onto the picture. Cut out, glue down, and add a ribbon for a hanger. I also added the date at the top.
An ornament, a picture, a 2 year old's masterpiece. Perfect!
