Do you get as nostalgic as we do when you hang your ornaments on the tree each holiday? I love to see the ornaments that represent a particular year or memory. This year I made a simple ornament with my child’s profile in a silhouette. I used a round wood plain ornament from my local craft store. This would make a darling gift for the grandparents too!

Supplies: unfinished wood circle ornaments | black card stock paper | mod podge | scissors | black cording

Steps

1. Take profile pictures of your children. You can size the images in a free online software. I sized mine 2.5 inches x 2 inches. The ornaments I used are 4 inches. Print pictures and cut around the profile of each child.

2. Trace the cut profile picture onto the black card stock.

3. Cut the card stock using sharp scissors or an x-acto knife.

4. Using sponge brush, apply glue to back of card stock and adhere to center of wood ornament. Let dry for about 10+ minutes.

5. Once dry, apply a thin coat of mod podge to entire top of ornament.

6. Add black ribbon or cording.

Happy holidays!
