Second day of Christmas
On the Second day of Christmas my true love gave to me.... Personalised ornaments for the tree...
I love family Christmas ornaments. I have made baubles with our names in glitter, tiny photo frame ornaments, and wooden cut out stockings with names on them. I love something personalised specific to our family around the house at Christmas.
I don't have instructional photos.. sorry...
My dad cut me 4cmx4cm cubes from free wood offcuts from the side of the road ;)
I painted them white using normal acrylic paints.
Then I printed out 4 photos of each person in the family shrunk down to the same size.
I used PVA glue to glue on the photos to four sides of each cube. I then used the same PVA glue and painted over the whole cube (the bottom at a seperate time) If you have Mod Podge use that.
I then hand screwed in an eye hook at the top and attached a string. I tied a red bow around each hook.
Here I am in all my Christmas Glory :)
We're just a bunch of blockheads :)
