Monogram Christmas Ornaments

Monogram Christmas Ornament Monogram Christmas Ornament Monogram Christmas Ornament

This is my first Christmas post. I love this time of year and love doing Christmas crafts and Christmas baking. I actually made these letters last year with my daughter. Of course she wanted hers pink which isn’t very Christmasy but she loved doing it. She did remind me that this year we need to include a letter for our pets too. I’ve done the ‘J’ for our dog, Jess but we will have to do another for our new kitten, Olley.

These are really easy to do and are great to do with the kids.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Small wooden letter

White acrylic paint

Coloured paint

Glitter

Clear glue

3mm ribbon

Christmas embellishment

Here’s how:

Paint your letter in white and leave to dry (do a side at a time and around the edge)

Paint all over in the colour of your choice again doing a side at a time and around the edge and allow to dry. You may need a second coat of colour. I did two on mine.

Put some glue on one side and sprinkle on your glitter

Glue on your embellishment

Cut some ribbon and tie around your letter (or glue on at the back)

Black texter

Optional – glue and glitter

Instructions:
