These handmade wooden ornaments are just the right added personal touch to your rustic holiday decorations! My oldest son is a Senior in High School this year and you know what that means, Sr pictures! I decided to do something special with them and make these wooden ornaments to put on everyone’s packages this year to remember this special year for Connor!
Wooden Ornaments Supplies:
You will need…
- Wooden Ornament or plaque
- Photo Copy of Picture
- Mod Podge
- Wood Stain
Wooden Ornaments Instructions:
Step 1) Stain the wooden ornament or plaque. Let dry.
Step 2) Tear out the copy of the photo into the size you need. You can also use scissors, I personally like the rustic look of the torn edges.
Step 3) Brush the back of the copy of the photo with Mod Podge.
Step 4) Brush a layer of Mod Podge onto the wooden ornament or plaque.
Step 5) Place the photo down flat on the wooden ornament .
Step 6) Brush on a layer of Mod Podge then smooth out any bubbles carefully with your fingers until the photo is smooth.
Step 7) Cover the top of the ornament with a final layer of Mod Podge. Let dry.
Step 8) If the wooden ornament doesn’t already have a hole or a hanger you can drill a small hole at the top or hot glue a piece of jute to the back of the ornament.
These look great on a Christmas tree and check out how they look on packages! I don’t know about you, but getting or giving that little extra present on top of a package is like icing on the cake! Check out these awesome burlap packaging ideas here:
