I cannot believe it is time for Christmas crafts already! But I am so excited that it is. Christmas time is my favorite time of the year and while I was thinking about Christmastime and the activities and such that we have planned for this year I kept going back to one word – Joy! I really want this holiday season to be about the Joy that Christmas brings and celebrate as a family by being together making fun memories. I thought it would be fun to make some cute Christmas Letter Ornaments to hang on my tree to remind us throughout the season.
I found some fun little letters at Hobby Lobby that were pretty light that I knew would work perfect for the project I had in mind. Using the paints – Christmas Red and Holly Leaf by Plaid – I painted the edges of the letters.
Next, I flipped the letters over and traced them onto Christmas paper. After I cut the letters out I used Antique Matte Mod Podge and applied the paper to the wood. I love using Mod Podge! It is probably one of my favorite products to use because there are so many different formulas that give your finished product a different look. I simply brushed the Mod Podge onto my piece of wood, applied my paper and then brushed a nice thick layer over the top.
When everything was dry, I hot glued some white ribbon to the back of my letter so I can hang them on my tree.
Hang them on your tree and you are done!
