Today is day 8 of #12DaysofBlogmas and the prompt is “DIY.” I thought I would try my hand at making ornaments with my little girl. We ended up having a lot of fun! If you’d like to find out more about 12 Days of Blogmas, you can visit the two amazing hosts, Julie from Girl on the Move, and Joanna from Motherhood and Merlot.
Aaaahhhhh, Christmas-time with toddlers…This year I have finally accepted that my beautiful, very breakable ornaments need to stay packed away.
So, to make your own beautiful ornaments you will need:
They had round ones that opened at the top, round ones that split in half, and oblong flat ones.
Paint brush or sponge brush
For the ornament that splits in half, sprinkle glitter or salt inside and tap around to get complete coverage and dump out the remainder.
Let it dry!! At least for a few hours.
For the ornaments that split in half, use a glue gun to glue it together.
Hang up your lovely new ornaments. Or, if you’re like me, let the kiddos hang them up while you sit on your hands.
Pretty simple and I was really happy with how they turned out! And as long as you got enough mod podge on there, the glitter/salt will stay put.
