12 Weeks of Christmas- Week 9: Ornaments Part 2!

So if you've thought ahead about my 12 Weeks of Christmas, you would notice that we have 3 projects left and only two weeks to do them! So be expecting two in one week either this week or the week before Christmas. I can't believe it's coming so soon.

So here's the story about today's DIY project. Last Christmas, I mentioned to Bryan how much I LOVE to receive handmade gifts. Don't me wrong, I love to get store bought gifts too, but something is so special about someone spending time to make something especially for you. And guess what? Bryan made me a present!

He made me a Christmas ornament! And it means SO much to me! Crafting isn't usually his thing, but he did it just for me!

How did he make it?
 Well he was very resourceful....

The main part of the ornament is a jar lid. He used photoshop to write a super sweet message to me (this step is optional). He measured and cut the picture to fit the jar, and mod-podged it into the center.

For the top, he took one of the little jingle bell ornaments from our tree and removed the top. Then he attached the top to the lid. You could use ribbon or something instead, but I think this makes it look really professional!

FYI: It is super easy to twist the tops off of the bells.

I am so thankful for my husband. He is always such a thoughtful gift-giver!! I really want to make more of these picture ornaments to personalize our tree even more, and to capture each year's memories.

I hope you all are having fun getting ready for Christmas! We sure are!

P.S. Didn't Bryan do a great job on the tree this year?!?
