I recently went to Hobby Lobby and found some really great things to do for crafts with the boys. I love to do little inexpensive projects especially around Christmas. We found these inexpensive ornaments that were plain wood and we painted them. With the 50% off I am pretty sure they were under a dollar a piece. First I let G paint as much as he could. Then I finished painting the other side and gave it a second coat of paint. I took the center plastic out where you put the picture so we didn’t mess that up. G really enjoyed painting them and mommy enjoyed finishing them.After letting the paint dry I used the puff paint to write their name and the year on it. You can see that there is a circle and that is where their picture goes. Now I just need to find two cute ones. Think I will take on in their Christmas outfits and stick it in there. I also think I will be selfish too and keep these for our tree! They turned out cute and I can’t wait to see it with a picture.
Growing up on Thanksgiving day while the guys watched football the kids needed entertaining. My aunts and grandma always had a project for us to do. We got the glitter out and paint and who knows what else and made Christmas ornaments every Thanksgiving afternoon. Do you have a tradition on Thanksgiving? Do you plan on making any new homemade ornaments this year? Check out Michael’s or Hobby Lobby for some great ones that are inexpensive!
