I’m loving all the subway art I’ve seen on various blogs I follow so I decided to try something simple before I make my family one for the house.
I decided to create subway art personalized ornaments for my husband, son, dog and me.
I started with four pieces of christmas scrapbook paper, 4 small wooden squares 3.5 x 5.5, red paint and red ribbon.
I used Microsoft PowerPoint to create arrange my words. I set the paper to the size of the wood by clicking on File and then Page Setup. Then I started typing in different words to describe everybody and played around with the different fonts. It really didn’t take that long at all.
After all 4 of my slides were complete, I cut the scrapbook paper to 4 x 6 because I was using my PictureMate printer to print the images. Then, I just placed the 4 different sheets of paper in the printer and printed the four images.
I then was ready to attach the paper to the wood. I painted the wood pieces red and when it dried, I simply decoupaged the paper images to the wood. When it was all dry, I drilled a hole in the wood and pulled the ribbon through so it can hang from the tree.
A fun and simple keepsake ornament! My favorite part was including Connor’s toys that he loves playing with this year . It will be fun to look at in the future and remember what he liked in 2010.
