We’re always looking for new ways to use stamps, especially when we’re feeling crafty around the holidays. After enhancing cards and envelopes, we decided to use our stamps to create one-of-a-kind stamped wood ornaments to cherish year after year!
- Colorbox ink pads
- Holiday stamps
- White paint / paint brush
- Wooden ornaments (we found ours at Michaels Stores)
- Coat the wooden ornaments with white paint and let them dry. A clean palette helps the stamp impression and glitter stand out. However, if you’re in favor of a more rustic look, you can definitely leave the ornament as is.
- Stamp your impression directly on the ornament with the ink color of your choice.
- Immediately cover the wet ink with glitter, then shake off the excess. You can try matching the glitter to the ink, or white glitter works with any color while still allowing the ink to show through.
Here’s a peek at the ornaments we cooked up for this year’s tree.
First Christmas as Mr. & Mrs.
Our Married First Christmas Stamp will make any newlywed couple smile. The “2016″ cupid’s arrow definitely adds a romantic touch. When you’re done making ornaments, the stamp works great for those wedding thank yous.
