I don't know about you but I really wasn't ready for summer to be over yet. I prefer sunshine, flip-flops, and yard sales over crowded stores and being cold all the time!
Today I'm sharing some cute ornaments I made from recycled Little Golden Books.
I found some wood slice ornaments on the clearance aisle at JoAnn's a couple of weeks ago and at 70% off I couldn't pass them up!
I had some old Little Golden Books in my craft room so I thought it would be fun to use the two together to make some cute Christmas ornaments.
The ornaments I found had jute hangers on them which I removed.
I laid each wood slice circle on one of the Little Golden Book pages and traced around it.
Once I had all my pages selected and cut out I used Modge-Podge to adhere them to the wood slices.
A little tip: when using Modge-Podge coat the surface of your item with a coat AND the backside of the paper piece with a coat then use an old credit card to smooth out any wrinkles.
I also cut out some of the words (serial killer style) that matched the images I chose and added them to the backs of each ornament.
I used colored baker's twine and colored jingle bells for the hangers on my ornaments.
And here are the finished ornaments! I think the vintage children's images are so cute.
For your convenience, here is a supply list that links to each item that I used to make these:
Mod Podge - Matte Finish
Small Colored Jingle Bells
Little Golden Book
These were obviously super easy and fun to make, something even young children could make with a little help!
Last year I created a banner out of Little Golden books.
It sold at my space at the antique mall.
