This really is a continuation of yesterday's post but still, a different ornament, a different post. Once the kids had their ornaments done then it was on to ours. Last year's was quite hysterical but didn't turn out the way we would have liked, for sure. This year we were very pleased with the results!
Items you need:
Scrabble tiles (we had an old game so we took them from that)
Oaktag or thick paper
Ribbon to hang ornament
Hot glue gun
Start by gathering up your saying. Some that we came up with: Let it Snow, Merry and Bright, Joy to the World, Feliz Navidad, Oh Holy Night, and so on and so forth. Ho ho ho was also tossed around. Once that's decided then line up your tiles, row by row. Then use masking tape over the tiles (letter side up) to keep them together. Then trace the entire thing on oaktag. When you cut that out be sure to cut inside the lines so you won't have any over hang.
Then just hot glue the tiles right to the oak tag. I didn't remove the tape until after the glue was dry, it made gluing a breeze! Once the tape is removed I glued the ribbon on for a hanger. Then comes the messy part! Adding the snow! You can use your finger or a paintbrush, doesn't matter. Just schlep it on there wherever snow might fall should your ornament be outside in the event of a blizzard. The stuff takes 24 hours to dry so I just laid it on a paper plate and took it home that way.
Super fun right? Scrabble tile all the ornaments!
Oh, and I had a cannoli! Thanks April!
Thanks once more mom for not only coming up with the plan but supplying the mission as well!
