As I promised in the previous post, here is my take on the Alphabet Ornaments from Ballard Designs.
I made mine with clear ornaments, off-white spray paint, black glittery letter stickers, and spray sealant. I wanted a rustic, matte finish on my ornaments, and I chose to do my family's initials in both upper and lowercase. I spent $5 on the letter stickers and a set of 5 clear ornaments, and I already had the spray paint and sealant in my craft box.
You can go a thousand different ways with this craft - instead of letters, you could do stickers of your child's favorite animal or cartoon character; I plan on doing an ornament with all elephants on it for my oldest, I think he'll like it. I also plan on making a set for my parents' house, with antique gold spray paint instead of the off-white.
I'd love to see what you do, so please share here if you make some ornaments!
