WFMW- Easy, Monogrammed Ornaments

Christmas is only nine days away!

I wanted to do an inexpensive, classy gift for teachers and friends.

I absolutely love this idea (I've seen it several places, but first saw it here). The sky is the limit on colors and creativity.

Clear or frosted glass balls
Large alphabet stickers
Foil or paper shred- in the gift bag section
Christmas or coordinating ribbon

I actually got every item half price at Hobby Lobby. My gifts cost a whopping ONE DOLLAR each and less than 5 minutes to make!

Here's how:
I will be taking a break next week to celebrate with my family, so there will NOT be WFMW on Wed., Dec. 23. But it will resume on Wed., Dec. 30.

Thank you for joining me for WFMW! {You can read the guidelines here.}

Those ornaments are ADORABLE!! Thanks for sharing the great tip! :)

mandi @ it's come to this said...

Those turned out great!! Love them:)

Diann said...

Very cute idea! Thanks for sharing it.

Troy @ I Refuse to Recede said...

Your ornaments turned out great.

This is my first time joining WFMW. I just finished building a self rotating can rack for our pantry, and my linked post shows the steps I took to do it.


Amy@ MomsToolbox said...

I LOVE those! Super cute! What a great idea for a hostess gift as well as a teacher gift!! (And maybe a few for myself, too :) )

Lisa @ Stop and Smell the Chocolates said...

Those are really cute ornaments - what a great idea!!

Becky @ Our Sweet Peas said...

This is such a great idea. I will have to store it in my memory bank until the boys are school age. Who Am I KIDDING? I will store it in my favorites. The computer is much more efficient than Mommy to Twin Toddler's brain! :)

TidyMom said...

CUTE CUTE!! I had clear ornaments in my cart the other day and couldn't remember what I've seen done with them (I'm NOT creative LOL) so I put them back! DARN!

But I do have 2 project to link up here this week, hope that's ok.

Merry Christmas Kristen!


Danielle said...

I can't get the video to play...

Am I doing something wrong?

Kristen said...

Just fixed the video slideshow how-to if you want to watch how these ornaments are made!

Just Mom said...

I love how something so simple can be so elegant. Thanks for the idea.


Amber@theRunaMuck said...

Ooooo. I like this a lot!

Debbie said...

I LOVE these ornaments - so cute and personal. Great inspiration!

Julie Bagamary said...

Very cute and simple too.

Young Wife said...

These ornaments are fabulous!

Chris said...

These are so cute & perfect! Thanks for the tip!

Kayren, Pink Daisy Girl said...

I did similar ornaments years ago (like almost 20!) with some garland in the middle. That was before they had so much cute stuff. I love these, and my kids will love making them. One pack of six would be perfect for everyone in our family to have one. I'll have to go check out Hobby Lobby and see if they have any left. Thanks for sharing this great tip!

Michelle said...

Those are so cute! They would even make incredible gift toppers since they are so cheap. Love them & I'm hitting up Hobby Lobby to make some this weekend. Thanks for the tip!

Anne said...

Those are beautiful and they would make great gifts for anyone!

M.O.T.B said...

LOVE the ornaments!!!!! I am so excited to try these!

Carolyn said...

Fabulous idea!

Julie From Inmates said...

Those are really cute!!! I'll be making those next year!!! =)
