Christmas Ornaments

Well, I think I am finally on the mend from this bout of bronchitis. Today is the first day I feel "okay" since Christmas!!!! Thank goodness!! 

Here's something I whipped up before the Holiday and sent two off as gifts...

I bought 3 wooden birdhouse ornaments at Michael's (wish now I bought more!!) and some Christmas paper napkins from Tuesday Morning (never heard of this store until I needed napkins for crafting). 

I than used the very top sheet from the napkins and "cut" them out using a small paintbrush and water. Than basically decoupaged with water and glue. 

When done, added one more coat of the glue and sprinkled very fine glitter over ornament. Ta-da!! 

I was so pleased with how they turned out. My favorite is the last that girl and boy image.
