Here's an easy Christmas craft that anyone can do, for little money. I am not super crafty, at least not compared to some of the amazing moms I've been following on blogs. Some might even call me crafticapped. So that should give you an idea about how easy this craft is!
Here's what you need:
- wood or cardboard ornaments (.25-$1 at Michaels)
- craft paint (mine is acrylic)
- mod podge glue
- something to spread paint and glue (I used sponges)
- a photo
Step 1: Cover ornament with paint, let dry
Step 2: cut a photo to fit on your ornament
Step 3: Completely cover ornament (front/back) with glue
Step 4: While glue is still wet, put photo on ornament and apply glue over the top. Make it thick, because this is what makes it opaque and glossy
Step 5: let dry and then bling it up with whatever you feel it needs. I painted gold dots around the edges of mine.
I also made this hanging decoration using the same technique on thin wood pieces. I just hot glued them to a fancy ribbon and voila!
