One of my favorite Holiday memories is making our own Christmas ornaments each year! Last year we started the tradition with my son.
My new favorite DIY method of ornament using household items and craft materials I already have and turn it into an ornament.
- Cardboard or cardstock– cut into shapes, we chose circles
- Holiday gift wrap or scrap book paper
- Craft glue
- Gold Ribbon
Glue large pieces of scrapbook paper or sturdy wrapping paper to the cardboard shapes.
Set aside & allow the glue to dry.
REPEAT steps 1 & 2 on the other side of the cardboard, add glitter if desired.
Trim the excess paper off.
Iron the ribbon (cloth) so that it lays flat when you glue it.
Glue the ribbon in a criss-cross shape on the back of the ornament, trim the ends at an angle.
Add the ornaments to your tree & enjoy!
