24 Days Of Simple Christmas ProjectsMaterials needed:
- Family History (I like to do a photo on one side & a brief history or genealogy on the back)
- Ceramic Ornaments
- Modge Podge
- Brush to Apply the Modge Podge
The most time consuming part of making these is the sizing. I found it easiest to guess at size, print, then keep adjusting my sizing until it fits the ornament. With the square and rectangular ornaments, it is simple to measure and size the photo accordingly. With the shapes, I ended up cutting text and piecing it on the ornament, then going into my document and changing the text to match up with what I had cut and pieced - then I reprinted.
When you brush the modge podge on it will look like glue - very opaque. Do not worry, it will dry clear.
The first year I did these, I did not think ahead well enough. From now on I want to do 4 extras, one for each of our children, which I will pack away for them, and then give to them all at once when they have married and have their own trees.
