Making Ornaments for Christmas

Wood sliced ornaments

I’ve been having fun making ornaments and thought you might like to see my process.

Hope you have a wonderful day! πŸ’š

Watercolor painting for the project

I painted some holiday greenery for this project but you could use any painting for this. I may paint a few little birds next time…and I’m getting excited just thinking about it.

Last year I purchased a bunch of wood slice ornaments for some craft projects. I decided for this project to glue a small part of my painting to the wood. The watercolor paper was rather thick so I ended up using both double sided tape and Elmer’s glue to attach it.

Selecting a section of the painting

Using my circle template I found a nice area of the painting to cut out for each ornament.

Working on wood sliced ornaments

After attaching the painting to the wood ornament, I weighed it down with a couple heavy books for a few hours.

I just love these rustic ornaments, yay! 😊

Making Christmas ornaments

The pretty green bow adds a sweet touch. I think they will make a nice gift.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Until next time, share a smile and shine on.
