Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year and I love decorating my house for the holiday, especially my Christmas tree with each of my ornaments that tells a different story.
Well, since my daughter is in Pre-School this year, I thought it would be fun to take a piece of her artwork and make an ornament out of it. This could be a fun tradition every year (and a great memory). So let’s get started!
- 1 piece of printer paper
- 1 clay ornament from Michaels (for only 69¢)
- Mod Podge and brush
- Red, green and white paint
- Scanner (optional)
To start I had my daughter draw a Christmas picture on a piece of normal laser paper. I tried to keep her to a certain size so it would fit on the ornament… but she’s 4 and has a mind of her own! So instead I scanned the artwork and reprinted it out to fit perfectly on the clay ornament.
And the best of all? They’re super cheap! I personally only needed to buy the 69¢ ornament (I had all of the other supplies on hand!). If you don’t have all the listed supplies, you should be able to get the rest of them for less than $5!
GOOD LUCK IN MAKING YOUR KID ART CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS!
