Christmas Ornaments

I've decided to try making a hand-made Christmas this year. Luckily there are some great ideas out there in blog land. I thought I'd share my hand-made Christmas ornaments (which were inspired by this cute project):


These ornaments were actually really easy to make. Check out this great tutorial for the details on how to stamp the lettering on the washers. After I had stamped the washers I super glued them together, then added a festive ribbon and one of my hand-made beads. I think they turned out pretty cute and were a really fun Christmas project.

  15. I went out and bought some stamps, washers and stain. I could NOT for the life of me get even a small impression.
    What's the secret?

  16. Charlotte,
    I had a hard time when I first tried to stamp the washers because I was using my crafting tools and a cutting board like girl in the tutorial. What I ended up doing was using a much heavier hammer and a steel anvil in our shop teacher's class room. I don't think you have to use an anvil but the heavier hammer was help A LOT. Also, try holding the hammer further down the handle to give you more leverage (sometimes I noticed hand creeping up to the middle of the handle). Good luck!

  17. Thanks Leigh. I think, too, that they make washers in different depths. So, maybe the ones I got were too thick.
    I did purchase some 'disks' made of sterling silver which should stamp easily.
