Silhouette Ornaments - Cherished Bliss

Hello Sugar Bee Readers! I'm so excited to be here today sharing one of my handmade ornaments with you!


I'm Ashley and all these cute people in the picture above are my family : ) I blog over at Cherished Bliss and love every minute of it! You will find craft tutorials, sewing, home decor and much more over there! It's a lot of fun, and I hope to see you there!
This year I decided that I was going to make all my ornaments by hand (I must be crazy!) But I'm doing it : ) So today I am going to share with you my kid's silhouette ornaments. These are really easy to make, and a great tradition to do every year. Last year I made silhouette stocking holders for my mantel. I'm not sure what it is, silhouettes just feel Christmas-y to me!
{Supplies} printer wooden tags (or other surface) sparkle modge podge foam brush thread/yarn washi tape
{Tutorial}
one. First you will need to print off your kids'/family's silhouettes sized to fit on the surface you are using. mine was 2.5" x 1.5" I have a tutorial on creating silhouette's using photoshop elements
two. Using your X-ACTO knife cut out your silhouette's and figure out where you want to place it on your surface.
three. Using your foam brush and modge podge apply a layer to the wooden tag, then place your silhouettes on top. Let that dry for a few minutes, and then apply a sealing coat on top of your paper silhouettes.
four. Once dry, I added a piece of washi tape at the bottom and tied some crochet thread in a bow to hang it from the tree.
And that's it. You can write the year on the back so you can keep track of what the time, because we all know it flies by!!
