Handmade Christmas-Initial Ornaments

I love to decorate with a simple initial here and there...


It is an awesome way to personalize a home.  So why not the Christmas Tree?  An initial ornament tied on a box of candy or a gift can add the simple touch that will make a present go from great to FABULOUS! 

I found the white wooden initial at Michael's but almost any craft store has them.  From there you can let your creativeness run wild.  A little paint, a hook screwed into the top, some ribbon and you have a perfect ornament for someone special.

To paint it all I did was use a flat brush and paint a black border around the letter.  Then I used the bottom or end of the brush to make red and green polka dots (just dip the bottom of the brush into the paint and start dotting onto the ornament).  The hook took two people and a little muscle to get started but if you used a little larger one then it would be easier.  Tie some coordinating ribbon and you have a ornament for someone special.

Make one for yourself and that special person on you list.  A simple, inexpensive and personal gift...what could be better?  Sweet ornaments-J
