Here are 10 Christmas ornaments that I think would be adorable to make in this way: Santa, snowman, gingerbread man, elf face, stocking, angel, present, Christmas tree, ornament, and reindeer.
I also think you could personalize your ornaments to your family. The 10 personalized ornaments that would work for our family include: ballerina tutu, football, doxies (wiener dogs), schnoodle dogs (schnauzer/poodle mix), boxers, bully dogs (American bulldogs and boxer mixes), owls (because I love them), cameras, map places I've traveled, and Big Red (WKU mascot).
There are several other things that I can think of for friend ornaments; here are a quick 10 off the top of my head: chihuahuas, German shepherds, Maltese, Wildcat (UK mascot), sunflowers, skateboards, bicycles, gamer shapes, cats, house shapes.
You can see some of these patterns in the pictures below, but many of those are just my own ideas.
I really like the elves and football too.
The question became: how do I make patterns for myself to use if I'm going to try to make these ornaments? The answer was simple really. I googled images of holiday items and various breeds of dogs that my friends/family have and printed them. Once I'd done that, I laminated each and cut them out as accurately as I could. (I had some former students hanging around my classroom just before Thanksgiving who had nothing to do, and put them to work on my project too. Free labor is the best - lol!) Of course, I could have cut these out of vinyl on my Silhouette Cameo (if I knew how). That would have been quicker and easier, but I also think it would have been more expensive in the long run.
Side note: wouldn't a hand painted monogram be fabulous? I guess I would need to use my Silhouette for that one for sure.
The curling edges were driving me nuts, so I used several bottles of paint as weights to hold down the edges. We'll see how that works. I plan to work on these again later this week, so I'll update you when I can.
There you have one of my Christmas crafting ideas in progress, or at least at the beginning stages of progress. I'll check back in later with what I'm able to actually accomplish. Fingers crossed that I don't jack it up terribly!
