Christmas Traditions: Making ornaments

Before I moved my blog over here, I had been posting about some of our Christmas traditions at my old blog.

This next entry has to do with taking the time each year to make new ornaments. I was inspired by a craft I had seen on Pinterest.

I decided to use this idea, but make the ornaments with small pieces of craft wood, scrapbook paper, and mod podge.
Kevin cut all the wood pieces down and drilled two holes toward the top. Then I cut the printed scrapbook paper to fit the wood pieces, and cut a smaller piece of solid paper for the names.

We looked up 24 names of Jesus that we wanted to put on our ornaments. Then each of us wrote out the names on the solid paper and attached them to the printed paper, then to the wood pieces with the mod podge.
Once these are all dry, we will be adding a small piece of wire so we can hang them on our Christmas tree. I am really happy with the way these turned out! It will be so nice having our tree decorated with 24 names of Jesus!
