Recycled Little Golden Book Ornaments

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!

But hey, there's nothing I can do about it so I figure I might as well get in the spirit!!

My mom and I decorated my booths at the antique mall for Christmas on Friday: Antique Mall Booth Update for Christmas and that helped get me in the mood for some Christmas crafts 😄

Today I'm sharing some cute ornaments I made from recycled Little Golden Books.

Little Golden Book crafts

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:

Wood Slices Ornaments
Mod Podge - Matte Finish
Baker's Twine
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.
