decoupaged ornaments

I’ve made several different decoupaged ornaments over the past few years. I enjoy crafting them and I keep thinking of new kinds to make. Here are a few samples.

These are ornaments I made for the Christmas Notebook ornament exchange in 2006. They were decorated with pictures of our home decorated for Christmas and pictures of our family enjoying the holidays. I also used prints of vintage postcards for filler on the ornaments.

I made family ornaments for the kids in 2008. I used prints of Christmas pictures from when they were younger to cover the ornaments.

In 2008, I also made garden ornaments, using pictures of our yard and gardens.



These ornaments were made this past Christmas (2011) for a small group of women, friends of my sister, who came for an afternoon house tour. The picture was decoupaged to the back, then glitter was glued over the picture and along the edge of the ornament. You look through the ornament to see the picture.

I made ornaments for this year’s Christmas Notebook exchange using the same kind of base ornament as above. It’s a flattened glass ornament. For this one, I decoupaged on both sides of the ornament instead of just one, as above. This is the front:

And this is the back:

My side of the family has an exchange for our Christmas party, with a limit of $5. I like to make something for that, so I made two decoupaged ornaments using pictures of my parents in high school and pictures of their wedding. These went home with my youngest sister.

    What a cute idea. And the ornaments with your mom and dad’s photos – what a special gift especially this Christmas. Did you make them after your mom’s death?

    Mary, yes, I made them after Mom’s death. I thought it would be special. My sister was thrilled to get them. Our exchange is supposed to be gifts which cost $5 or less. When opened, one person starts and the next person can take the opened one or choose an unopened one. Like a white elephant gift. It’s lots of fun. Everyone was nice to Paula and let her keep the family ornaments. 🙂 ~~Rhonda
