I took these picture of the kids in their Christmas jammies back in November intending to turn them into some sort of photo ornaments. I didn't quite know what to do with them though until I saw this tutorial from Jackie at Teal & Lime.
The process I used was pretty simple:
1. Print photos and cut out.
2. Doodle snow globes and angels on paper until I was happy with the size and shape of each one.
3. Trace finished doodles inside laminating pouch using Sharpies.
4. Add glitter, photo cut-outs, and laminate.
5. Add a string and hang!
Maybe I should have turned Abe into a snow angel. He makes a snow angel on our deck every time I send him outside! (Then he usually rolls over and starts eating snow...) He was pretty happy to see himself in a snow globe though. I used white acrylic paint on the back of the snow globe to fill in the "snowbank" he's sliding down, the space behind the words, and to add a few extra "snowflakes" since the glitter didn't stand out much.
So that completes another round of Christmas decorations. Find the complete list (from this year and years past) right here!
