Each year at Christmas, we give our grandkiddos a Christmas ornament. It is either a gift or used as a tag on one of their gifts. This year I am making a Handmade Monogram Christmas Ornament for each of them.
Not only that, BUT this blog post is part of the 31 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments. If you are arriving here from Petticoat Junktion, Welcome! I am SO happy to have you here today. And, if you follow me on a regular basis, you KNOW how happy your visits make me.
My Handmade Monogram Christmas Ornament is SUPER easy and starts out with a few supplies.
white crystal snowflakes-6 1/2 by 6 1/2 in size (purchased at Hobby Lobby)
red glitter snowflakes-3 1/2 by 3 1/2 in size (purchased at Wal-Mart)
3 packages chip board alphabet letters, 3 inches by 2 inches in size
a glue gun
gold spray paint (purchased at Hobby Lobby)
pretty string to use as an ornament hanger (purchased at Hobby Lobby)
The first step is to hot glue the red glitter snowflake to the larger white glitter snowflake. I placed my red snowflake exactly in the middle of the white snowflake. But, you can chose to make yours anyway you would like.
The next step for my Handmade Monogram Christmas Ornament was to spray paint my chip board alphabet. I made sure we had enough letters for each of our 25 grandbabies.
I spray painted my letters in a large paper sack to keep the paint from spreading all over our balcony porch.
*make sure when you are using spray paint, you are in a well ventilated area.
I then hot glued the monogram to the center of the red glittered snowflake. For a hanger, tie a pretty glitter string to the top of your ornament. It is simple and adds a little bling.
Your Handmade Monogram Christmas Ornament is easy as that to make. In no time at all, I made all 25 Christmas ornaments. It’s nice to be prepared for Christmas in October. Whew!
