12 ornaments for Christmas Day 2...

These are really quick and fun to make and you only need a few supplies. I have learned the trick to Mod Podge on these so I am extremely happy with them.
I purchased the wood blanks at Hobby Lobby when they were on sale 1/2 price so four of them were $.50, not bad for cost you can make plenty of them for gifts and craft fairs.
I started with a blank, no paint or sealer, and put on a small amount of mod podge then placed my paper down and pressed on from the center out.
On the back I used double stick tape to set my cord onto, then another layer of tape on top of the cord to make a sandwich.
Spread mod podge on the back and lay your paper down again pressing from the center out and using very little. (Use extra pressure when placing your paper over the cord to get a good tight fit around the cord.)
Tie a few strands around one side of the hanger and you are done.

Very inexpensive, great way to use up your scraps and quick. A great project for kids or your grandchildren.

This project can be kicked up a notch by simply painting the wood, different ribbon, layering the possibilities are endless.
