To kick things off here is a Christmas ornament I made. I bought a bag of alphabet blocks and jazzed them up a bit.
-Paint (to paint one side with the alphabet letter)
-Scrapbooking paper (I used less than two 12x12 sheets to make 12 ornaments)
-2-3 small Pictures (per block)
-Eyelet screws (for the top)
-Ribbon/string (or anything fancy to make this piece original. I found some glittered pine cones on floral wire. Anything works).
Idea: Using lettered stamps, stamp your child's name, the date, or a message on the block. Another idea is for the bottom of the ornament. One year I dipped the bottom in glue and glitter (Cute but messy. I hate glitter. You find it on your face days after doing any project). This year I used scrapbooking paper.
The one on the left is the ornament I made for this year 2012. Two years ago I made the ornament on the right... Not my finest creation.
