Christmas Ornaments Instructions :)

I'm getting ready to go to a big Christmas gift show in Salt Lake City in a few weeks!
I have to decorate for Christmas, so I have been making ornaments.

Here's how I made them!

I purchased some plastic, clear ornaments like these:

From Hobby Lobby (Michaels has them too)

The package I got had 25 ornaments in it for $19.99

Next I bought some clear acetate pages that you can use in a color printer.

I printed out a sheet of kidlettes, each was about 2 1/4" tall.

I cut each image out in a rectangle, rounding the edges. I cut about 1/8 of an inch from the bottom of the feet, and close to 1/4 of an inc from the top of the head.

I rolled them up lengthwise and stuck them in the top of the ornament.

I used a skinny paint brush handle to manipulate the plastic until it was where I wanted it. 
The plastic is bowed toward the outside of the ornament.

I think they would be super cute with the names sideways right next to the image.

They are SUPER easy!

Will you be using your Nativity cuties in the ornaments?

@ Shari, I just used the kidlettes in my ornaments. My booth is an artist booth, so I was more interested in showing them off ;)

hi! I have a doubt! How do you stick it on the ornament?

Nikki said...

@Shanty, The images are inside :)

No glue necessary. They stick by just being on the glass?

I absolutely love this idea. I printed out the images on transparency film and let them dry over night. However, they still smear. Any suggestions?

I love'em all. Especially the last one "Deck the halls". These are great christmas tree ornaments. Good collection. +1
