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 :)

Nikki,
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?

Hi! Is this from experience? You tried it and they don't need glue? Thank you!!
